Get Groomed

You know, sometimes filling yourself up with confidence and comfort can be a whole lot more beneficial than stuffing your face with some greased-caked burger or boring lunch plate. Why not use that lunch hour to treat yourself? You might find, refreshed and looking oh so fresh, that you become more of a treat to those around you in the process. If you're in the Midtown area, dip in to the All American Barber Shop (421 Howard St., 682-224-9969), which was 2015's Best of SA winner, as voted by our readers. Downtown, we'd recommend stepping into Matador Men's Grooming (215 E. Commerce St., 210-222-9858,, a refined and updated take on the old-school barber shop experience, where you can be luxuriously pampered in a totally dude-tastic kind of way. If you find yourself in the Quarry area, hit up Boardroom (7322 Jones Maltsberger Road, 210-774-4311,, the kind of barber shop that's so plush and wide-ranging in its services it has to call itself a salon for men.
