Alamo Biscuit Company is known for loaded biscuits and breakfast eats.
Fans of Alamo Biscuit Co.’s namesake biscuits can now get those — as well as pan dulce, breakfast burritos and more — at a pair of new San Antonio outposts.

First up, Alamo Biscuit opened a counter-service model inside Methodist Hospital’s main lobby, 1310 McCullough Ave. The eatery signed a multi-year lease for the concept, which serves food 5 a.m.–9 p.m. daily, its representatives said.

What's more, Trinity University recently selected the business for its Taste of San Antonio program, which allows locally based concepts to operate on a rotating schedule inside the Coates Student Center Food Court. Other restaurants taking part include Ming’s, W.D. Deli and Crave Kitchen, according to the university’s website.

Through the program, Alamo Biscuit’s bakery items are also now available daily at Trinity's Mabee Dining Hall.

Opening locations at Trinity and one of the largest hospital systems in the country is “a dream come true,” Alamo Biscuit owner John Vale said in an emailed statement.

Vale's flagship eatery, 9630 Huebner Road, opened quietly in the Medical Center area in 2019, serving up biscuit sandwiches, appetizers and mimosa flights. The spot has since broadened its menu to include brunchy dishes such as shrimp and grits, huevos rancheros and pork-belly Benedict.
