I don't normally eat a lot of junk food or fried food, but there are some days that just beckon the soul to digress. If so, then head to Bobby J's in Helotes and fill your face with some of the best fried food and hamburgers anywhere.
The onion rings are what drew me back here. Since our first visit a couple of months ago, they have stayed on my mind. They are perfectly fried, have a nice crisp outter batter and done so that the meaty onion ring inside is crunchy and cooked all the way through. The BLT is a perfect Texas-size BLT with a generous portion of bacon, a decent tomato and piled on a buttered thick piece of Texas toast. They are one of the few restaurants that butter the bread and grill it to a delicate crunch.
The ambiance isn't much. True Texas style hole-in-the-wall. But the service is friendly, the food is served hot and the prices are very reasonable for what you get. My Dad and I ate there for under $20.
I imagine I'll be back every few months for the rings and anticipate another great comfort food type of meal.
