Timbo's near the brewery on Broadway has big hambugers with tater tots like you remember the old drive-in days. and Shypoke eggs..a type of nacho with two cheeses that make it look like a fried egg

mine is from Burger Boy on 2323 N. St. Mary's, I don't like my burgers piled with so much stuff or thick bread. Whataburgers are my second choice.

I like Chris Madrid's Macho Cheddar Cheesy. It'll give you a heart attack if you eat it regularly since it's covered in tons of cheddar and has lots of butter on the buns, but it's by far my favorite burger I have ever had. The macho nachos with ground beef, refried beans, and cheddar cheese are a great side order too.

I gotta caution that some people don't like Chris Madrid's because the patties are pretty thin. Not that they're small; the macho burgers hang out the edges of the bun. However, if you're looking for a thick burger with some pink on the inside, you won't like Chris Madrid's. Not much I like more than rare beef, but I think Chris Madrid's makes an incredible burger.

CindyGs, Chris Madrid is a hip hangout....near Trinity University ...donated T-shirts from different athletic groups, schools, military units etc adorn the restaurant walls. When you go, imagine that the cashier area and pickup

area was the original restaurant back in the day...the original tables were the industrial sized cable spools turned on their side. The middle area

was eventually enclosed and thus, connected the back bar/eating area. A very simple menu but good burgers. The regular size and a macho size.

My two cents - don't forget San Antone Cafe (Casbeers at the church) http://www.casbeers.com/ and the Cove http://thecove.us/cove/
