SAN ANTONIO – When we polled our viewers what restaurant should open up in San Antonio, one name kept coming up: Waffle House.

The Georgia-based diner that serves breakfast food 24-7 has locations across the nation, but none in the Alamo City. The closest we’ve come to getting the chain here was a pop-up food truck last year for National Waffle Week in downtown.

If there is anything I learned from my time in a Virginia is that there is nothing better than a Bo-berry biscuit from Bojangels. Second to that, nothing cures a hangover better than Waffle House. Therefore. Please bring us both.

I wish Peoples would open another restaurant here again. They have one in Corpus. Also I would like to see a Charlestons restaurant in San Antonio.

Bojangles!!! Whenever we go back to visit family in VA and the south we go. The steak biscuits are sublime (essentially a tender chicken fried steak on a tender biscuit) and dirty rice! So so do good!!
