Ehh, it's aiight – I had read all these reviews for this place and was totally excited to try it. We had a fun and knowledgable server and he helped me pick out a beef potato and carrot dish for my 1yr old son which he LOVED. My mom and sister both had salads they enjoyed. I had a portabella sandwich that i wouldnt really reccomend, wish i'd gone with the apple, hazelnut and goat cheese salad my sis had. My dad had a chipolte shrimp pasta he enjoyed and the chocolate cake was nothing too special. Overall i thought it was only average, not sure what the huge hype is about!!!!
Disappointing at best – With such a quirky menu and snooty servers, I was really expecting an unusual and delicious meal. While my dining companions ordered steaks and seafood, I ordered from the nightly special menu - spinach linguine with anchiote chicken. Big mistake! The pasta, while homemade, merely served as a sponge to soak up the grease from the chicken. As my dinner-mates cooed over their steaks and roasted tomatoes, I picked at my oily green mess. As other reviewers mentioned, their homemade bread is quite good, but not worth going back for. If I want mediocre food with can't-be-bothered service - I'll stick with McDonalds.
Also, be warned - your waiter will sneer and/or laugh at you should you think to ask for diet soda or ranch dressing!
They do not want your business – Liberty Bar has been a favorite spot to take customers to dinner for several years. We travel to San Antonio every few months and this is our #1 place to go. This time, however, I tried to make a reservation for a larger group and I was turned down. I was told by the manager that we would take up 5 tables in the dining room and he could not give up that many tables because he would loose business. This does not really make sense, given that we weren't expecting to eat for free! Just my opinion, but I would rather have a full dining room than a bunch of empty tables! I won't return to a place that does not want repeat business and I will no longer recommend this restaurant.
A Perennial Favorite – The building looks ramshackle, but it's solid--and so is the food. In fact, this has been one of my (and my family's) favorite San Antonio restaurants for years. There's always a wait, precisely because the food is so good. My favorites are the garlic pork chops and the wild boar sausage, but I don't know anyone who's gone away disappointed. Try the buttermilk pie or the geranium cream!
They don't take reservations, but apparently if you call ahead, you move to the top of the list once you're there.
Check it out... – Great place, great atmosphere and a nice friendly crowd. The staff there are friendly and accomodating. The food is yummy!!! My husband loves it - one of his favorite spots to eat. Highly recommend this place!!!
The unbridled indulgence of the Old South meets the snappy kick of Latin America in a wacky shack. – The Scene
A 1920s flood remains the popular theory, among many, for the house's distinct slant. The interior walls are painted an odd peach color and adorned with dried prickly pear cactus wreaths. The back room holds the smoking section and the bar, which remains lively long after the kitchen closes.
Although "bar" is in the name, it's really all about the food--an inspired mix that draws equally from the Old South and Chef Oscar Trejo's Latin American roots. Start with a cup of yellow squash soup or the chili relleno appetizer. Wet your whistle with Karkade, an iced hibiscus-and-mint tea. If you crave something spicier than the popular pot roast, go for the chicken breast wrapped in hoja santa--an aromatic, leafy herb similar to anise. The lamb sausage and chicken with achiote are also excellent choices. Stuffed? Get the buttermilk or geranium cream pie to go.
great funky place – Innovative, yummy food; friendly folks; funky building. Sometimes the dishes are a bit too heavy, but mostly they come up with some great ideas, like figs and cheese. Home-made bread is the best!
Give me Liberty! – THe BEST ham and cheese sandwich -(opt for the sourdough) piled high with swiss cheese and a substantial ham steak
Bring your marbles ... – This is where you'll find me when the USDA declares bread and dessert a balanced meal. It's what Liberty does best.
