Their juicy burgers with cheese are the best! The buns are super fresh and the burgers have lots of lettuce & tomato just like I love. The half & half order of tater tots & onion rings is huge. Onion rings were lightly seasoned & delicious. Their prices are pretty cheap compared to other places. We love, love this place... More

We have always enjoyed the food and unfortunately moved away. Went back today while on the road. We were not disappointed.

That's a question you don't have to ask at Longhorn. It was one of our favorite places to eat while we lived in San Antonio. REALLY good burgers as well as everything else we tried. It's actually "a hole in the wall", but the rusticity of the place just adds to the ambience. There's also outside dining available.

The Longhorn Cafe serves one of the best burgers in San Antonio. I really enjoyed their Cheeseburger combo. Their burgers compete side by side with Chris Madrid's and Hopdaddy.

An institution in San Antonio. Opened a second location on I-10 a few years back-the original still on Blanco. This is where you go for a big ol cheeseburger with homemade fries. You stand in line & place your order then find your own table. Has some outdoor picnic table seating as well. They have other things like grilled cheese... More

We've been all over South Texas looking for a better burger, but have never found one that beats this one right near home. Try the fried okra instead of french fries. We also love the tater tots. I think the cheeseburger is just about perfect but my daughter swears the guacamole burger just takes it to the next level!

Eating out with friends and family is very enjoyable at the Longhorn. Food is basic but good and the beer is ice cold. Great alternative to McDonalds or any other fast food joint for about the same price.

We came in from Austin and heard about Longhorn Café, being a Longhorn fan I had to try. Let me tell you this place is great! There was a long line to order and that tells you people are willing to wait for these burgers. Man was it worth the wait, the onion rings are awesome too. We will make... More

Gave this 4 stars but it's a strong rating because I typically hold my 5 rating for outstanding burgers. Good burgers and portions are larger than I expected. Kids burger with fries were adequate size and not too much or too little. Whole milk was available for our kiddos. High chairs and booster seats available. My wife's favorite meal is... More

Went to eat after a shopping expedition. The four of us were hungry and in the mood for a good old-fashioned juicy burger. We were not disappointed! We started with an order of fried pickles to share. A bit salty for my taste but the portion size was generous and had plenty of ranch dressing for all. We had not... More
