eating in san antonio -- day 1

one of the best parts of being married to a foodie is; traveling together and getting to eat food in different places and today was one of those days.

we went to whataburger for lunch which I know is not all that special or some may say not all that good, but for this southern girl, french fries with cream gravy and fried apple pies are a little piece of heaven.

for dinner, we tried out the republic of texas on the riverwalk. we were trying to decide what to eat and this restaurant was recommended to us by some friends who live here in san antonio. when we looked the restaurant up and saw that they had a blue cheese burger, we knew this was our place. we had really good margaritas and nachos to start us off and the burger was one of the best I've had. it wasn't as good as zax's in austin, but it was a close second. I would recommend trying out republic of texas if you are looking for a good place to eat in san antonio and if you are in austin, you HAVE to try zax's.

as we were walking back to the hotel, we noticed that there was a ben and jerry's shop close by, so we stopped by for a treat and it was really good. we need a ben and jerry's in waco!!
