Are you getting ready to move to sunny San Antonio? If you’re on your way to Alamo City, we’ve good news: no one makes a burger quite like Texas. So loosen your belt a notch or two–by the time you get to the end of this list, you’ll be ready to make a trip to load up on the beef.
1. Attaboy–2410 St. Mary’s St., San Antonio, TX 78212
When you pull up to Attaboy, you’ll wonder if you’re in the right place (don’t worry–you probably are). The quintessential Texas burger joint is located in an Airstream trailer, where they make burgers using hand-ground meat and buns baked in-house. The menu is as tiny as the restaurant, but don’t worry–a regularly changing specials menu means you can always get something new when you stop into Attaboy. The regular fries are great, but switch them up by asking for sweet potato fries if you’re in the mood for something different with your burger.

Round out your meal with a side of bacon, cheese fries, or onion rings for the perfect lunch or dinner.

Owned by local San Antonians, Babe’s is proud to make every single item on their menu on-site.
