Had business in San Antonio, and took the opportunity to make a detour and revisit this little piece of culinary heaven. The neighborhood is changing, but the quality and taste of this SA landmark remain as high as ever. The chicken fried steak (offered in two sizes) was obviously hand-breaded, and so tender you didn't need a knife. The accompanying... More

Save yourself a trip and don't come here. it is not what it used to be. The food fell flat and the place was just a bit dirty. It has the feel of a restaurant going down hill to the end, but is too stubborn to let go. I would love to see this place turn around.

Been coming here for more than 50 yrs and find the place to be every bit as good as it was "back in the day". Food is fantastic, a true jewel of nostalgia in San Antonio....for those of us that remember fondly the Butter Crust Bakery, Playland and other bygones that are long, long gone. The pig sandwich with that... More

I came here with my mom and kids and we all really enjoyed it! I've been passing it for years and always wanted to try it, but I didn't know what to expect. Each of us really enjoyed our food and the prices weren't bad.

I only went to go and meet a lady in regards to her selling me a shampoo. I've lived in San Antonio 18 years and never heard of the pig stand. My first thought was 50's from the jukebox to the pigs to the pictures on the wall. We were just waiting there and got a drink when I saw... More

Big portions and good food. Waitstaff was undermanned but was prompt in delivering food and beverages. 50s kind of atmosphere.

We dropped for a milkshake and ice tea on a hot summer day! It was nice visit one of San Antonio's vintage restaurants! The milkshake and tea was good and the atmosphere made us feel like we were in the 50s! My children enjoyed selecting songs on the jukebox.

Burgers, pie, hello 1950's. This place redefines old fashioned. That's charm. Onion rings were invented HERE.

The last time I ate at the Pig Stand, I had their luncheon special and it was chicken. Unfortunately, it wasn't up to their usual standards but the chocolate cream pie I had for dessert made up for it!

Truly an old classic Diner. Clean, and quick service. Daily specials are cheap, but delicious! Always good, no matter your choice. Servers are friendly and treat you like family. Fresh desserts always good.
