While that isn't the correct response to your question, I'd say that "locally-owned" would mean one to about three locations. I can't think of an exception to that where the food is worth going out of the way to purchase, and especially on vacation.

A locally-owned chain (a couple of old fashioned drive-ins) known as Snapka's was barely okay when we moved here a few years ago. But not anymore.

It's fun to find out where the locals eat a quick bite . . but that'll never be the big chains.

One of the BBQ houses here (an old one) in Oakville, TX has opened a second location in the rush of the oil boom. VAN's. I use the second location several times weekly for "lunch" (anytime between 1100 & 1900) as it is the best $5.29 sliced beef brisket sandwich imaginable.

Were you headed south of San Antonio for the coast on IH-37, then, yes, I'd go along with the OP . . can't do without a sandwich from VAN's as Exit 72 or Exit 65 is just too handy.

And I don't have to eat it there (would be the upshot to my above post).

Oh, but you must expand your horizons a bit. Catty-cornered across the street from the Owl in San Antonio is the Buckhorn. And they make one really mean green chile (I mean chili) cheeseburger, one that beat the one made by Bobby Flay in a Throw-Down!

Up my way, if you're heading from Santa Fe to Taos, you have to stop by Sugar's and order a Sugar Burger, also excellent! Sugar adds mushrooms and other stuff to the green chili topping, and it's great! But Sugar's is open only Thursdays through Sundays ...

Interesting article. I noticed it is written by someone with the same last name as mine, except she misspells it.
The one that surprised me is that she included chilly.
This is Chilly.

Chile for the peppers, chili for the resulting meat dish.

And, no, what they serve in Cincinnati has nothing to do with any spelling.

No, he lives in New Mexico, so he means San Antonio, New Mexico.

There's a whole world outside of Texas. (well, a whole world minus Texas)

I went to college at Clarion. I haven't been back in quite a while, but I plan to go one of these years when Penn Wood is hosting the Autumn Leaf Festival rally.
