San Antonio--best eats on a student budget

I visited San Antonio a couple of years ago and had great Mexican food at Los Barrios and a stellar burger at Chris Madrid’s. Daughter is going to visit there from So Cal soon. Any recommendations for her? TIA.

Have her look for puffy tacos. They’re a local specialty.

Luling is a short drive for BBQ at City Market.

I haven’t been to SA in years, so I can’t be much help. (I’m surprised you’re not coming with her!)

My favorite visit on the last trip was at the Pearl Brewery complex, not a student budget meal probably though. It was at Cured. There are several other restaurants there that have great reputations. I’ve heard good things about Dough PIzza.

This morning I was reminded of Blanco and Henry’s…
