I miss that place. It was the best.

Big ol mug of sweetened iced tea, a poor boy sandwich (with their vinegar onions), with those thick cut fries.

That's livin' man.

Is ol' Bill Miller's still in business?

Also miss:

Taco Cabana (late night - after Denim and Diamonds)
Jack in the Crack (late night taco run)

Food so good, make you wanna slap yo mama.

Yeah I ate some Bill Miller's last week.

I used to live in San Antonio. Bill Miller's was one of my favorite chow houses.

I am told it is still in business but operates differently now.

I used to get a qt of sweet tea and a sausage link with fries for $3.50. Then I could have all the bread and onions with pickles that I wanted.

That was 20 years ago.......

That was about the time the first taco cabana opened. They had pretty decent fajitas but were damned expensive.

They don't have one within 100 miles of me.

I do love a good BBQ.

I love that place! Especially the sweet tea.

There's probably 3 Bill Miller's restaurants within like two miles of my apartment. So yeah, it's very much in business still.

Ummmm. Errrr . . . uh.

Just be sure you ask for the poor boy extra lean (make eye contact when you do -- make sure they understand). That way you won't get a gelatinous lard sammich.

I like Bill Miller's, but I miss Whataburger most of all.

I frequented Bill Miller's during my tech school at Lackland AFB in early 2002.

When my wife came to visit me for one weekend, we ate at one. It was close to closing time when they came around and offered whole pecan pies for $2.00. Best damn $2.00 spent--lasted us all weekend.

Whataburger is the shizzle. Right up there with In-N-Out.

Now Taco Cabana



I've been served so much sub-standard dog crap and orders filled wrong there, I can barely stand to be in the same neighborhood as a Taco Cabana. However, the beef enchiladas are still kind of tasty if the kitchen staff doesn't mess it up like they usually do.

God I could go for some BBQ from Bill's. I used to eat there while at Camp Bullis near San Antonio.
Link Posted: 3/10/2006 5:55:35 PM EDT
There is a Cooper's in Round Rock too... superior BBQ. Daddy Cooper taught all his boys (five, I think) how to BBQ, they each went their own way. Get some!

The Taco Cabana here just closed a few months ago, that place was awesome

have some Corky's slam it on a bun,,,Damn Tastey

AFAIK, all the Bill Millers' get their barbecue from the same, centrally-located commisary - it's "imported" meat! As previously mentioned, it tends to be VERY fatty. Here in San Antonio, there's one on just about every street corner (definitely something to be said for convenience!).

Grady's is usually pretty good, and generally, so is Rudy's. County Line is great, but pricey.

Personally, I miss Dickey's from the Dallas area - Good barbecue, and a WICKED bowl of chili during the winter months!
