Mark's Outing
1624 E. Commerce St., (210) 299-8110, marksouting.com
Sometimes you just need a burger, and thankfully this East Side staple still packs in the crowds with its free beans and fresh-made burgers. Stick with the basics, but we won't blame you for wanting to try the ice cream burger.

Panchos & Gringos
900 Nolan St., (210) 227-6700, facebook.com/pages/Panchos-Gringos
Perhaps the only non-awesome thing about this eatery is that they're only open for breakfast and lunch. Opened 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. daily, Panchos & Gringos is the casual diner you always dreamed of that combines awesome breakfast sandwiches (they're stuffed with house potatoes) with Mexican breakfast (jumbo breakfast tacos!) and it's insanely cheap. Get there ASAP.

Burleson Yard Beer Garden
430 Austin St., 210-354-3001, facebook.com/BurlesonYard
It's hard to find fault in this massive patio bar that occasionally hosts great jam bands, food trucks, and laid-back viewing parties of both classic movies and Spurs games when they're in season. Make use of the parking lot on the side of the building and make sure to take your puppy pals.
