Restaurant Details

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
