Last week, we brought you just a few of the city's worst restaurants according to reddit users. Let's start the week off by being positive. Thanks to OldDickLemon for creating the thread. Here's a sampling of restaurants SA Redditors love:
Burger- Cured. Get the triple, let the grease drip down your arm, and savor every bite.
Italian- Il Sogno
Brunch- Wish I could pick just one. I've had amazing brunches here. Feast, Boiler House, and Fruiteria come to mind. (I'm gonna come out and say it- Magnolia Pancake House is not worth the wait)
Outside Dining- The Luxury and The Cove
Pizza- Florio's, Barbaro
Breakfast Tacos- Original Donut Shop
I wish I had a favorite Food Truck. I haven't had anything that's blown me away yet. Still need to try Rickshaw Stop and Say She Ate, though.–mollysimmons73
Thai Dee, Pho Kim Long, Main street Pizza, Dough, Bigz, The Monterey, Osaka sushi, Augies BBQ, Texas de Brazil–OldDickLemon
Try Guillermo's for pizza and pasta. They are just north of down town. Great patio and bar, and good Italian American food. No delivery, but you can have a beer on the patio while you wait.–glasnostic
Serious up vote for Augie's. I work just up St Mary's at the Zoo, and a combo pulled pork/jalapeño sausage sandwich with a double side of their FANTASTIC green beans is a pay day regular.–retro_70s
Los Robertos, Guajillos, Armadillos, Taqueria Aguas Calientes, Taqueria Data Point, Bite Bistro, Bigz, Panchitos, Sapporo, Pasha, Scuzzis.–Rob_Ross
Mexican seafood - El Siete Mares.-Danbal1
Restaurant Gwendolyn and Kimura hands down.–TheWiseDevil
Local places I like to get food from are-
Wrigleyville, All Aboard Deli, Teka Molino, Thai Dee, Florio's, Gorditas Dona Tota Authentic, Chicago's Pizza, Dough, El Milagrito, Augie's, El Charro, W.D. Deli, Olgitas Molino, Guero's Taco Diner, Tycoon Flat's. I just have to add this, I miss the chili cheese fries they made in the '90s, though. The new ones are close but not the same. They're still really good and you should try them out if you haven't.
That's all I can think of right now.
edit: Damn, I like a lot of pizza, sandwiches and tacos.–Thats_Puffin_Talk
There is a lot...
For burgers- Big Bob's or RD's or Candies
For Mediterranean- Zorba's
For Indian- India Oven
For BBQ- Two Bros
And that seems to be it for me, obviously I eat too many hamburgers.–deadtex
Magnolia pancake Haus: if you get there when the wait isn't that bad, it's heaven for your tastebuds. However, it is really hard to get there without the wait. The location by Heubner and Resesrch is much better as far as the wait goes.–idiotimmortal
Dumplings via Tang Street
281: Tang St (http://tangst.com/) - be sure to order from the Chinese menu
NW Military: Sichuan Cuisine (http://sichuansa.com/) - more spicy stuff
Bandera: Kim Wah (http://www.kimwah.com/KimWah/index.htm) - been around forever; across from Tim's market

So much to choose from! - Il Sogno, go to nice evening out (Italian / $$$) - burgers: Cove, Lords, Madrids, Armadillos, Longhorn - Indian: Barwarchi Biryani Point - Chinese: Mencius, Sichuan - Med/Greek: Jereusulm Grill, Mina/Dimis, Turquoise - brunch: Feast - sushi: godai, goros, Kai ... Just realized that my go-to list can go on forever.–alamoney
For Fancy - Chama Gaucha; For Indian - Taste of India; Pizza - Maar's Pizza; Thai - Thai Cafe or Thai Dee; Seafood - Dry Dock; Turkish - Turquoise Grill; Mexican Food - undecided; Burgers - The Cove (their Bison burger is insane but could do without their crazy parking situation)–nonexist71
A lot of my favorite foods are food trucks, Lagniappe Today, Rocker Dawgs(Thai kick boxer is one of the best hotdogs I've had in SA), Takoriya .
Nao has a good burger on their late night menu
Pho Thien Ahn–vell_0
Any one of the 4 fajita taco place restaurants–TheBrownKnight210
Bacon cheeseburger via Fattboy Burgers.
Fattboy, Florio's, Magnolia Pancake Haus, Taqueria Datapoint, Jacala, Dough–ForIvadell
Taqueria Datapoint (everyone seems to agree.) Demos for Mediterranean Guajillos for some cold Margaritas and incredible salsa. Taipei on West and NW Military (Stone Oak one is gross) Fralos for a great pizza and date night. Sarikas on Medical and Fredricksburg for some heavenly Pad Thai.
And my underrated pick, Finlys Chick-N-Rib near UTSA. Friendly staff, overloaded me with fries, and the meat was cooked very well.–mrbungle821
Thai chili on Thousand Oaks has the best pad thai I've ever had–tadmau5
Green Vegetarian Cusine... the one at Alon though.–bacaowismyhero
Spicy ginger, picnikins, Ricky's taco truck, bigz, nichas for the guilty pleasure–nirnosub
Pho Kim Long's banh mi.
Bobby J'a for burgers
Chatman's Chicken for fried chicken, Big BBQ, Yum Thai, Ms Ellie's Pizza, Tommy's Tacos–kgool
Don Pedro's is a decent Mexican place on the south side. Purple Garlic, casual Italian place off Austin Hwy. El Jalisco De Gallito, dirty little whole in the wall Mexican place in the Med Center.
Wasabi, awesome rolls and fantastic happy hour. Chabas, decent little Thai place also on the south side.–allthatkills
