SA Redditors Pick Worst Restaurants in Town




Chris Madrid's signature burger loaded with cheddar cheese.

In a post titled “Worst Restaurant in San Antonio?” Alamo City Redditors (Here's the thread) took to the forum to voice what restaurants are truly San Antonio’s worst and overrated. The one rule of this restaurant smack down? No chains. You can check out the thread here. While we might not always agree with their comments, this does open up a dialogue on what people expect out of a dining experience. In other words, don't shoot the messenger. Let us know if you agree, or if they missed one in the comments below.

1. Chris Madrid's

"Have fun fighting other families for a dirty table after you order from the surly teenagers manning the counter. Then your wait is rewarded with a skinny, flaccid, over-cooked and under-seasoned patty blanketed in that slimy, neon orange "cheese" for around $9.”

2. Chacho's

"Chachos, where the only redeeming quality of the restaurant is their margs. The rest of it should be taken behind the barn and shot.”

3. Big Lou's Pizza

"Once again, I understand that it's fun to gather friends and go down and conquer one of their huge pizzas, but the wait is so long and the ingredients are very low in quality. There are too many good pizza places between my place and Big Lou's for me to ever bother going there again."

4. Pericos Mexican Restaurant

"Bullshit Mexican food, horrible acoustics where everything is amplified, and you come out smelling like a taco.”

5. Hung Fong

"The food at Hung Fung is terrible and the decor looks like it was designed by Buffalo Bill from Silence of the Lambs. I don't quite understand why we have so many terrible Chinese restaurants in town and how they stay in business."
