If you're looking for Asian style "make your own" stir-fry this may be the place for you in the Quarry area of San Antonio. The restaurant offers some Asian standards like Sweet and Sour Chicken (or pork), Pad Thai, and General Tso's, but it also offers the diner the opportunity to put their own dish together. Diners can select their... More

Tasted okay, but nothing much to rave about. Food was a little greasy, portions were good though. Price was middle of the road for fast food. I would eat here again if I was looking for something quick and easy.

I really enjoy getting the bowl that you can put your own vegetables and get them stir-fried with a spicy peanut sauce; maybe with beef, or tofu. Yum!

The atmosphere is loud with a fast food feel. The food is mediocre. I don't recommend Fire Bowl Cafe. If you want good Asian food in the area go to Hsui Yu on Broadway.

We discovered Fire Bowl after Fire Wok closed near us. Very similar in menu. You pick your veggies or veggie mix, choose your sauce and protein, and they bring you a bowl of goodness. Personally, I am a fan of anything with chow fun noodles, but my family like the lo mein noodles. They did not like the peanut sauce,... More

This is our favorite Saturday lunch place in San Antonio for the kids. Incredible food and flavor. Lots to choose from and the kids love it. For the little ones- I recommend chicken teriyaki with ramen noodles and no vegetables (kids won't eat them in stir fry). At least you can get good food while you're there.

Personal favorite. Food is always fresh and tasty, good selection of Chinese dishes at good prices, great location at the Alamo Quarry convenient for informal dining before or after the movies or for take out orders.

This is a busy place on a weekday at noon in the Quarry. My BW had the Pad Thai with two kinds of noodles, chicken, sprouts, onions, cilantro, and peanuts. The Pad Thai was very good. The spicy peanut stir fry was too sweet, they must add lots of sugar. This stir fry comes with chicken, Edamame, baby corn, sprouts,... More
