For being ranked #33, the wife and I were expecting a little better. The burgers were decent but not above average. The ambience was nice and the staff was friendly, but the food was just average. Maybe we just caught a bad night. We agreed...More

Still one of my favorite places to grab a bite or beer in San Antonio. I've been going to the Cove for years, and it's so consistently good. First of all, what a classic Texas bar set up. There is indoor seating for those days...More

Loved the atmosphere. Two large areas: indoor with live music and outdoor, even with a smoking area they call "cancerogenous zone". Never mind that the establishment is located adjacent to a car wash! I got a lamb burger and it was OK. Beer selection is...More

So it was my idea to check this place out. I dragged my husband to this laundromat/ car wash/ restaurant/ dog park/ music venue, maybe I’m missing something. We both had a blast. We sat outside and ate our tacos, listened to music, watched kids...More
