Winning San antonio burgers


Longhorn Cafe

A Longhorn cheeseburger is probably my favorite in San Antonio. You can get chicken sandwiches and all that other but this is a must try for burger connoisseurs. Cold beer, good fries and rings, and an outstanding cheeseburger. Don't pass this burger joint up. Two locations:

  • 17625 Blanco Rd - (210) 492-0301 - north San Antonio near 1604
  • 3150 SE Military Dr. - (210) 359-6602 - Brooks Citybase (south San Antonio)

Awesome burgers and worth the trip!

Chris Madrid's

Home of the Macho burger. Chris Madrid's is packed for lunch and dinner six days a week (Monday thru Saturday 11am to 10pm) and yes people probably do eat Chris Madrid's burgers at 10 in the morning. One of the great things about their burgers is the amount of cheese they use for their cheeseburgers.. This burger restaurant is the recipient of numerous awards as well as being written about in Texas Monthly.

  • 11650 Bandera Rd. - (210) 767-9090 - just south of Helotes

Bun-N-Barrel

This restaurant is a barbeque restaurant but one item on the menu undoubtedly belongs here. It is a unique burger that hundreds, if not thousands of San Antonians have eaten and it's called the Terrace Burger. This burger has double meat and cheese with a special sauce that makes this one of San Antonio's best burgers. I don't know what's in the sauce on the Terrace Burger but this specialty burger is what I order every time I visit the Bun-N-Barrel. Order lemonade with this burger. It's made the old fashioned way.
