I have been coming to Bud Jones since I was a little girl. Now that I'm married and in my 30's me and my husband enjoy coming. I love the cheese enchiladas, and the fish is fresh and hot...absolutely wonderful! And service is always terrific from all. We will continue to come back again and again.

We had chicken fried steak and chicken fried chicken -- both with tasty cream gravy; onion rings with real onions, sweet cold slaw; fountain sodas with servings big enough to share and still take some home. Want to return for seafood, enchiladas and carrot or chocolate cake.

About 30 in the group, everyone was very happy with their meal. Food was delivered. Fast hot and together. Other staff came out to help distribute our meals. Our waiter was very attentive.

I've been going here since I was a kid with my grandparents. The food has always been very good and I love the chicken fried steak (CFS), very large and tender. Don't know where another reviewer went, but it's never been greasy. I ask for "drowning in gravy" yum. The baked tater is always perfect, fried fish is good, as... More

Average food for not so average prices. The place is damp and not clean looking and then the food was just OK but the prices were higher than normal. Never again.

Had breakfast at BJ's restaurant to day and it was great. The food came out fast, hot, and was very good. Large portions and the staff were great. Always a good place for any time meal. The restaurant has been around for years. We will go back soon.

Restaurant was busy and one lady who seemed like the manager kept asking if all was okay or we needed anything, which was a lot more than our server did. Salad was drowned in 1000 Island dressing which tasted good, both the chicken fried steak and chicken fried steak were greasy. Onion rings were cold but our server did replace... More

My family & I were in San Antonio for comic-con and we were looking for a family restaurant to have dinner at. The restaurant's appearance is outdated, but the food was awesome! My husband had their famous largest chicken fried steak dinner and I had the fish & chips basket. Both delicious and I highly recommend them. My daughter had... More

The Country Fried Steak with White Country Gravy was enough for a couple, yet it said for a lady. Served with choices of 2 sides makes for a meal and a take out for later. The service was good and the prices excellent. A true Family Restaurant, No Alcohol Served.

Bud Jones Family Restaurant is an icon in San Antonio. It's mostly a place locals know about and frequent but, it's a friendly place for those visiting too. It's an older place and can seem a bit dated but it's also nostalgic. The menu is varied with large-portion home cooking/family style meals that range from all-you-can-eat fish or spaghetti, to...
