Baldys American Dinner
Review №1

The food was great. Such an iconic place. Had no idea it was even there. A friend invited me. Got a huge omlete with hashbrowns, biscuits covered in gravy for 7 bucks. How is that even possible? Great place.

Review №2

Great food, great service. I like that you get a salad after ordering your food. Old fashioned. I tried the Hawaiian burger. It was delicious. Fresh produce and very flavorful. Will be trying the ruebin next time.

Review №3

If you want a home cooked meal. This is the place to go. It's classic diner food. The food is delicious and reasonably priced. Plus most specials come with soup/salad & a dessert! Trust me when I say you'll leave full.

Review №4

Had lunch at Baldys today and it was quick and delicious. I had the Western BBQ Cheeseburger and it had the good bacon, not the dinky slivers like at McDonald's, and grilled onions. Also did a side of fried pickles which were also good. The service was excellent. I will certainly be returning.

Review №5

I love coming here when I'm in the mood for an all American breakfast. The hash browns are really good. We do take out for dinner here often.

Review №6

My first time to eat here. My husband got chicken fried steak and shrimp special. Included 2 sides and either soup or salad and dessert. All of it was great. I got fish and chips that came with either soup or salad and dessert. All of it was very good. My son got a hamburger and fries. Very tasty. They have lots more on the menu and specials every day. I highly recommend the place.

Review №7

Food was great, staff friendly and respectful and atmosphere was wonderfully nostalgic. Recommend you eat there.

Review №8

This place is fantastic. Old-timer charm with staff that really care. The specials are always good. Great ambiance and full of nostalgia!

Review №9

I ordered the fish plate , good taste but fish is not supposed to be chewy. Like it had been microwaved way too long. The gumbo was good.

Review №23

Super friendly people!! The Big Pulled Pork taco salad is AMAZING!! Loving the 50's diner that they have as well!

Review №24

The food is great but the people here don't seem to care about their customer's safety. The staff isn't wearing masks and your menu has been handled by an unknown number of customers before it was given to you.

Review №25

Review №30

My wife and I looked far some home cooking and waited for 40 minutes as people and big groups are helped and given food before us. And as we are checking out they said sorry and wanted to take our order. But after 40 minutes of waiting who would want to wait another 40 minutes for food. Then as we wanted to pay for drinks the register would not work. Great place to eat and relax. It's only for locals. Seriously only locals.

Review №31

Excellent customer service.. Vanessa is a top notch waitresses.. Great food at reasonable prices.. Keep up the good work..

Review №32

The food and service was fantastic great atmosphere me and my wife thoroughly enjoyed eating here A+

Review №33

My 85 year old parents go out to eat frequently and had decided to give Baldys a try. They were very disappointed with their chicken fried steak and pork chop plates and complained about them. They didn't finish their plates and after much back and forth talking, the manager basically told them to leave because they were obviously the kind of people who did this so that they could get free food. This actually happened a couple of years ago and I had completely forgot about it until today. It's my dads birthday and I wanted to get him a gift card to a restaurant close to their house. I unfortunately picked up one from Baldys. I realized my mistake when I saw the look on my parents face when I gave it to them. I of course went back to Baldys to try to explain the mistake but the manager would not give me a refund because it's against their policy. Definitely learned a lesson about this hole in the wall today. Never again.

Review №34

Good food for a good price. Waitress and staff were friendly. I'll be back!

Review №35

Great food and good music. Nice place.

Review №36

The food was very good. We went kind of late, close to closing, but the atmosphere was also very welcoming. Will definitely be back!

Review №37

Delicious food and great looking interior and the staff are friendly

Review №38

Service was good. Food (chicken fried chicken, mashed potatoes, and green beans) was bland. Tea was spot on. I spent about $12.00

I eat there frequently. I love their food, especially the pork chop plates (breakfast or dinner version ).I'm on a muscle building diet, and let me tell you, those chops are right on the money! Hot Dam!

Review №50

Worst place me and my wife ever ate at. The prices are ridiculous for the nasty food. Salad warm and old tasting, wifes grill cheese stunk bad, and steak was far worth 12.99. The bread pudding was nasty too there was to much cinnamon. Great serves but the food is horrible.

Review №58

Food was tasty. Burgers are big. Prices are good. Atmosphere and wait staff were great!

Review №59

Great special of burger, fries, drink and a slice of apple pie. More than generous serving and the pie was a little piece of sweet at the end of the meal. Only complaint is it was a little warm in there and that's cuz the lunch crowd had started to disappate.

Review №60

Good inexpensive breakfast with large servings.

Review №61

Have eaten at Baldys several times. The first experience was fantastic. The food was excellent along with the service. Prices are ridiculously low, 3 people can eat for about $30. Since that first time the food has steadely gone down in taste quality with 2 exceptions, the burgers and the breakfast selections. Dinner choices have fallen flat. Most recently the rib eye steak. Over powered with lime juice I believe. Staff is very friendly and helpful. Hopefully the food will improve because the owners are great people.

Review №62 a nice Diner ..very good food ...and the staff and owners are very sweet and very good customer service....

Review №63

The service was horrible, the food was waayyyUnder par, even by todays standards.If you like chicken fried steak i would suggest another diner. They literally served me a banquet frozen steak patty with gravy on it, and instant mashed potatoes to boot!I had to send it back.Wife orderd a $13 steak and me literally were served a peice of round steak being passed off as a sirloin.If you have to eat here, stick to a burger. They seemed tolerable.Also the server was very rude and we even had to get our own menus.We just started to look over the menu after we got them ourselves(had already been waiting 20 mins for our drinks)And she walks in and asks if we are ready to order.Stay away from baldys. You'll be BALD before you get your frozen t.v. dinner.

Review №64

Great food great ppl

Review №65

The "all you can eat" platter wasn't what you would think. The fish were small pieces and had to be be brought out several times and the shrimp was brought out st 3 or 4 pieces at a time. The pork chops were on the dry side. The good was just okay, and the service could have been better. Not a good experience.

Review №66

The chicken fried steak is prefab. They claim to be an all American Dinner, then make your chicken fried steak and don't use prefab. The staff was very professional.

Review №67

Friendly staff and a great atmosphere.

Review №68

Food was decent. Had the prime rib Monday special which would have been better if it was fresher. Seemed to be leftovers from the weekend prime rib. Strawberry shortcake was good. Chicken fried steak was average but a little soggy. Prices were very reasonable and portions were just right.

Review №69

All good, service and food. Highly recommend.

Review №70

Small and friendly , never Wait in line

Review №71

Just an overall nice experience at a small town diner, had some liver and onions that were a little overcooked but still tasted quite well. the wait staff was very helpful and kind and she even made a good suggestion on some dessert strawberry shake is awesome .would highly recommend this place if you're going on a long trip out of San Antonio or even going out for a quick bite.

Review №72

Review №73

Review №74

Good service and friendly staff

Review №75

Staff was very friendly. The food was great.

Review №76

Food is deliciously tasty, prices are awesome and staff is super nice. The restaraunt has an old fashioned feel to it and is extremely clean. The only downside is they use onions n bell peppers in the potatoes so next time I will request without. All in all two thumbs up.

Review №77

Really really good food. Worth the drive!

Review №78

I'm 66 yrs old. Quality/quality of food, atmosphere and service reminds me of dinners when I was a kid.

Review №79

This is a great little American Diner. I eat here about once a week for lunch with coworkers. The food is delicious and the prices are extremely reasonable.Edit: I bumped to a 5 star for the service. We are always greeted on entrance, servers are always friendly and the chef is always willing to customize a order which I greatly appreciate!

Review №80

The service is excellent but the food is inconsistent. I especially like how breakfast is served all day. My favorite item on the menu is the loaded hash browns but it seems like they are made differently every time. Sometimes with lots of bacon, sometimes not so much. I also like my eggs over easy and sometimes they are over cooked.

Review №81

Review №90

We have eaten breakfast here and dinner a few times. Breakfast is always a winner but this evenings dinner was even better. I had the steak salad and it was tastey and fresh. My husband had the special which was a combo plate of cat fish and hamburger steak with salad, and 2 veggies. He was very impressed with his food as well.

Review №91

First time there and I have to say the food was excellent. And they don't skimp on serving sizes either. I left stuffed. The wait staff was 1st class.
