I asked the concierge at the Hyatt Regency in San Antonio
to point me to some "greasy spoons" or good ol'
joints, she was truly horrified. "We wouldn't
send out guests to those sorts of places - they're mostly
in the wrong part of town." The Concierge never did
get back to me when I asked her for recommendations away
from the touristy River Walk.
know if the Bun 'n Barrel is in the wrong part of town,
but it truly is one of those sorts of places. I had
the two meat platter - brisket and smoked sausage with
sides of beans, potato salad, pickle, onion and barbecue
sauce. Washed down by a vanilla shake and chased
with an order of onion rings.
