“STumbled Upon this one”
Reviewed February 10, 2009

Just stumbled upon this one. Outside sign brags about world famous burgers. After eating what many people called, "the world's greatest hamburger" the night before at Chris Madrid's, we were anxious to compare. Got to tell you, Bombay's burger was, in our opinion, a much better hamburger. The fries were also superior! We would go there again, and if we lived in San Antonio, we would be regulars.

Can't think of the last time I ate there, but I sure used to drink their beer!

“Food's not great & it's overrated as a get-together spot”
Reviewed June 22, 2008

I have no idea why anyone would actually eat at Bombay's... the real draw is that it's a perennial watering hole for the local colleges and recent grads. On Thurs-Sat, it is wall to wall college kids, smoke-filled and noisy. Go there if you're looking for a place to yell at friends over mediocre drinks.

Also, if you're looking for any kind of decent service: I agreed to meet a colleague there for a drink before we went to dinner nearby and his car was broken into two parking spaces away from the front door. The bartender/manager's response was to tell us to call SAPD and remind us that there was a sign on the door that says they're not responsible for thefts. Complete lack of empathy or concern. Apparently this was not an isolated incident. Great attitude, people. Yeah, really makes me want to come back and tell all my friends how great this place is. Not.

Decent little pub-style bar. I would like to go back on a busy night.
