Whatever your people are here for — a graduation, a birthday or a niece's quinceañera — they're going to need to eat eventually. Here are three spots to take your guests before they get hangry and you need to get them out of your house:

La Fogata If you're spending a ton of time with family, chances are you'll need a margarita. La Fogata has what you need, plus the classic Mexican fare that people expect when they come to SA. If the weather's nice, hang out on the patio and order some camarones enchilados to share. 2427 Vance Jackson Road, (210) 340-1337,

Liberty Bar Rare is the restaurant that offers something for everyone, every meal of the day. But Liberty Bar is such a place. Even the pickiest — vegans, paleo adherents, children encased in hypoallergenic bubbles — can come away satisfied. From pear and stilton salad to steak tartare, Liberty Bar serves crowd pleasers. 1111 S. Alamo St., (210) 227-1187,

Two Bros. BBQ Market Smoked meat for you, a playground for the kids. Two Bros. offers no-frills 'cue in the form of brisket and pork sausage, but options such as the cherry-glazed baby back ribs are worthy of consideration, too. Plus, all the traditional fixin's you desire to go along with items such as deep-fried mozzarella logs and quarter-pound smoked and chilled jumbo shrimp. 12656 West Ave., (210) 496-0222,

See the rest of the list.
