Mom-&-pop diner food and restaurant.
The entrees are healthier and less Tex than Mex by SA standards, but the chips and salsa outshine the main menu. Don't skip dessert, though, even if the only veggie you ate was salsa. Vegetarian entree options available. -- Clint Hale (11/08)
A 24-hour family-style restaurant located near the Coliseum. Part of the Pig Stands chain. ;
"Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen." (Hebrews 11:1) Not to worry: If ever there were someone not qualified to opine on matters biblical, 'twould be I. But the preceding verse is burned into my mind by virtue of its posting on the wall of the group cycling room at the Downtown YMCA - where another kind of burning also goes on - that of the calories implied by this article and all others past and future. It's also especially appropriate to the Leap of Faith Café, located in the basement of Travis Park United Methodist Church. Connie Marshall, the café's congenial owner/hostess/guiding light, abandoned her two popular Seasons Café and Bakery locations for a subterranean site, which, in spite of exposed limestone walls, track lighting, and displays of art (affecting portraits of homeless people comprise the current show), still seems very much the church basement it is - with long, communal tables covered with oilcloth. There is more at work here than marketing, and a certain amount of faith is required of the first-time diner; a sandwich board at the street level is the only overt indication of the café's location. It's the only evidence of things not (yet) seen. - Ron Bechtol
Housed in a defunct Denny's, Lulu's is about comfort food, wi-fi, and late-night eats: platefuls of chicken-fried steak, and, for bad cases of bottle flu, greasy omelettes slathered in fresh salsa.
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
