    Not as international as the well-known chain, Magnolia nevertheless touches many bases on its way fro New Orleans to old Bavaria with reward points and travel glitches along the way. -- Ron Bechtol, 02/08
    What would you expect from a place called the Malt House? If your answer is a thick, syrupy malt topped with whipped cream and a cherry, think again. The Malt House serves homestyle dishes simply made - meaning that the malts in question are actually just cups of soft-serve frozen yogurt - doused with a healthy topping of Hershey's if you order chocolate. Apart from this unusual deviation - after all, the beverage is the institution's namesake! - the Malt House doesn't stray from the traditional definitions of the dishes on its menu. Pull into the parking lot on Zarzamora and Commerce, and turn on your lights if you'd like to eat in your car. But since it's a bitter cold February, you would do better to go inside and cozy up to a plate of enchiladas. The atmosphere is friendly and chaotic - filled with families during dinner, coworkers and cops during lunch, and party-goers late at night. And the food - if not sophisticated or exotic, is just right for a cold San Antonio day. - Laura Fries

    The house salsa is rogue at the new Mary Lou's, but the Tex-Mex staples are well above average, and now you can enjoy them on marble floors, for what that's worth. Ask for the salsa verde, and try the enchiladas verdes, too. -- Ron Bechtol (06/09)
    Mi Tierra Cafe & Panaderia is a favorite of San Antonio residents and has been around since 1941.
    The Milam Building at Travis and Soledad was erected in 1928, just in time for the Recession, a small setback that didn't deter it from becoming the center of the then-known oil universe. The Milam was also the first fully air-conditioned building in the world. Hold up your hand if you knew that. Although the oil industry has long since moved on to power centers in other cities, the Milam, with its classically detailed spit-and-polish lobby, still retains an air of burnished respectability. You half expect to see tenant remnants of the building's heyday walking the corridors - and perhaps you do. One friend, whose father had an office in the building, remembers eating there as a kid, not however, at the '30s-era prices: Roast Prime Rib of Fancy Northern Beef au jus topped that list at 22 cents. - Ron Bechtol
