A San Antonio institution for delicious Texas style comfort food for more than half a century,
Earl Abel's had to relocate for a Red McCombs condo project.
We found them on Austin Highway.
This is an oldy but goody just like the 50s rock and roll music they play.
On a weekday for lunch we arrived early and watch the place fill up.
My BW ordered the Turkey Turnover, and I had the Philly cheesesteak.
We started off with a bowl of Navy Bean soup the daily choice. The soup was packed with Navy Beans and was tasty.
Our server reminded me of the ladies who worked for Earl Able back in the day. She was friendly and efficient.
The Turkey Turnover was an inverted pot pie, it was covered with gravy and tasted yummy.
It had chunks of turkey, carrots, peas, and potatoes swimming in gravy with a flaky crust.
My Philly Cheesesteak was huge and looked like it would intimidate those from Manayunk Avenue
in South Philly. It tasted delicious, and it was bursting with red and green peppers, onions, and cheese.
I ordered a side of hand battered onion rings to go with my side of great fries.
I found out that Earl Abel's still bakes their own pies and cakes. The maple pecan and lemon chess
pies are house favorites.
Earl Abel's, a glimpse of the glory days and still alive in Alamo Heights.
