I've been coming to CHESTERS for years...and they never disappoint. Today's bacon cheeseburger was fabulous...fresh, fresh veggies, CRISP bacon, hot, delicious hamburger patty and, of course, the poppyseed bun! Delicious, fresh cut fries, free refills...this place is the BOMB! Sorry about the photo...it was just too good!

I grew up eating at Chester's, so it's slightly nostalgic for me, but it is literally the best burger and fries I've ever had. Every trip home includes more than one visit. From the poppy seed bun to the fresh cut fries, it never disappoints. If you're in the area, you should definitely check them out!

We have been eating at Chester's for more than 23 years, most of the time at this location. While our company may change their orders, ours remains constant. This time however, the manager was so rude that, when we sent our onion rings back to be cooked longer, she berated an employee right in front of us making us want... More

I think the allure to chesters is the funky interior and the relaxed sports bar atmosphere. The food is average. I'm about to criticize a chili dog, I ordered it with cheese and was abhorred that it came with a rectangle of kraft-barf! For me it was a basic fried food menu and not my preferred cuisine. I did enjoy... More

The bacon cheeseburger had no flavor. I had to add salt twice, then again with every bite. Even adding bacon did not help. The burger was big but cost $7.00. Another $2.50 for greasy onion rings. I ordered a german beer, learned that with 6 display cases of beer, only two brands were german. I wanted a sweet wheat beer... More

My Cheeseburger and Onion Rings were very good and the atmosphere was warm and inviting. Ice Tea refills were offered frequently and the staff was very cordial.

This is one of the popular burger joint in the San Antonio area. They also serve fresh cut fries. They have a pretty extensive beer selection as well as other food options but you gotta try the burger first.
