Some Longhorn Cafe locations might be small, but believe it or not, they’re the home of the Big Juicy. And by Big Juicy they mean the burgers on the menu. Seriously, these burgers are big, savory, and worth getting your hands messy. While you’re there, I suggest ordering crispy onion rings for your side.
Where: 17625 Blanco Rd, San Antonio, TX 78232


Hopdoddy Burger Bar

They say that a good bun makes a good burger. Hopdoddy couldn’t agree more. This burger bar bakes in-house buns that are worth every bite. What may be even better is their insane combinations when it comes to making burgers. With burgers named El Diablo, Mellow Submarine, or The Impossible that’s plant-based, it’ll be hard to decide what to get.
