Do street-style tacos and giant nachos still have a stronghold in San Antonio's late night cuisine? Yes. We can't deny that. But inroads are being made to satiate past-midnight cravings. The aroma of fried chicken has been wafting out of the small window inside Faust Tavern for the just under a year. There is where chef Drew Morros and longtime childhood friend Roberta Marques are whipping up drool-worthy fare that won't have you reaching for the antacid. We're talking about fresh, scratch-made Southern food we haven't seen the likes of in San Antonio in a good while. The aforementioned chicken, hand-breaded and deep-fried to order is a mainstay and variations such as chicken and biscuits and a giant chicken sandwich rotate every few weeks. Don't miss the savory and tender pulled pork. The bar-friendly fried pickled okra has converted the okra-averse (it could very well have something to do with the creamy house-made ranch). Vegans and vegetarians don't have to miss out on the fun either — seitan sausage is available. If in Southtown, Hot Joy's been building a fierce late night crowd with ingenious Asian fare, while Alamo Street Eat Bar's fleet of trucks feature something for everyone.
