Chris Madrid's Nachos and Burgers
This burger joint on the city's near-North side has been cranking out burgers for 23 years. Some people may think that a burger is a burger, but they probably haven't been to Chris Madrid's. A consistent winner of various critics' polls over the years, the restaurant won the 2006 local newspaper's Best Burger award.Like a lot of local burger places, this spot is decidedly low-tech and high-taste. The Cheddar CZ is its signature meal, but you might want to try the devastatingly good bean burger, too. Add an order of fries and a cold beer and you are in hamburger heaven.
Chris Madrids is the best Hamburger place. Everything on their menu is out of this world. I drive an hour to eat here and it is very well worth the drive. Chris Madrid's menu cannot be duplicated. I don't know what they use for seasoning or what type of bread is used for their buns but they are amazing!!!!!!!!!
A Must for everyone.
I know it seems like everyone is on the bandwagon, but they are there for a very good reason. Hot, greasy burgers the way they are meant to be served. To me, there are 2 things that make Chris Madrid's so much better than the rest...
1. This one is easy to spot. They liberally season the patty before they cook it. How do I know that? You can taste the difference.
2. How they do this boggles my mind. They toast the insides of the bun ever so gently to give it a subtle crunch, but the rest of a bun is hot and INCREDIBLY soft. It comes off like a gently steamed bun, but it's toasted on the inside... do they do both? It's the best bun in SA by far.
My favorite burger and beer joint anywhere - and I've been to a lot of them around the country. Plywood walls, neon signs and The Flag of the Great State of Texas hanging proudly. The Macho Tostada Burger is a meal all by itself.
Bonus: If you are lucky enough to meet Chris Madrid (he's usually there greeting folks) you will meet one of the nicest, most genuine men on the planet.
This is a San Antonio Landmark and Institution. A must do for all out of town visitors.
This is a funky little spot in the middle of the stereotypically conservative Alamo Heights neighborhood. It serves breakfast and
dinner, but is most popular for lunch. The soup and sandwich type lunch menu and daily specials have a ...
Gold Medal Award Property * The Riverwalk Plaza Hotel sits on the south bank of the river in the heart
of downtown San Antonio. Walking distance to the Alamo, Convention Center, La Villita, Market Square, Alamodome and Rivercenter. Just ...
Just around a bend in the River Walk lies a sprightly little restaurant that isn't sure what it wants to
be when it grows up. Eclectic hangout or pure San Antonio? You'll have to decide for yourself.
