Excellent food and great service with value prices for the whole family .

Review №2

Such a treat. The wait staff, the food everything was just wonderful. And they treat you like family here. The food could not have been any better. It was top-notch, out-of-this-world delicious. My only complaint is that it was an enormous amount of food for one person. Haha. Who am I to complain it was worth it I just can't say enough it was wonderful.

Review №3

Definitely 5 Great Food, Great service, Large portionsThe Ladies/Servers are doing it right, Fast Service and working together. My first time visiting today for breakfast. Definitely will return to try their Lunch menu. Their daily fresh bakery items looked awesome. I was too full to think about bring any of it home, I will next time. If you're in the area or even across town of San Antonio, it's worth the drive!!

Review №4

Mexican food, yeah, super delicious. Got there about one, it wasn't busy. Fast, efficient, and courteous service. This place has a good feel to it. Feels similar to a restaurant in Philadelphia that I enjoyed visiting.

Review №5

Food was Amazing.. Be ready to take some home because the portions are massive and all worth it!! We also took home a strawberry pie and cinnamon rolls that they bake fresh in house!!! Loved it!! We will definitely be regulars at this place from now on!!

Review №6

I had mixed feelings about this establishment the first experience. I was a little skeptical about giving it another go so I called the manager. I explained to her what my issue was and she was truly helpful and receptive in correcting the issue. I gave it a second go yesterday and the experience was absolutely fantastic! The Manager and staff truly deserve a 5 star rating. The food and the staff were absolutely wonderful they bent over backwards to make my experience yesterday absolutely perfect! Thank you would definitely recommend this establishment has made me a believer in excellent customer service

Grumpys has been a major contributing factor to my obesity. Food is absolutely delicious good ol home cooking. The staff here is second to none. Love this place.

Review №8

Grumpy's good old fashioned cooking, if you can think it for breakfast or lunch they can make it. My daughter in so it the chicken and waffles with a twisted potato, course it's too much food, so there's always take out for a second meal. I had the chicken and biscuit smothered in gravy...yummy! my son-in-law went for the chicken fried steak and he had a smile on his face. I also love the teamwork of all the wait staff, you are never neglected and you always feel like family. Good as grandma's, no better!

Review №9

The best Chicken Fried Steak and Eggs I've ever had! Portions at big, just like everything else in Texas! Staff is awesome, Maura made the experience fabulous, very friendly! Thank you for making our first trip to San Antonio, and the Natural Bridge Caverns memorable!

Review №10

Great place to eat...very friendly staff and a great feel. Went to have breakfast and it was great!! Fresh homemade food that is way better than most places out there to take family and friends. I really enjoyed the menu selections and was impressed by the uniqueness of this long time favorite of many San Antonians!! I will definitely be coming back again for a return trip to try more menu items!!

Review №11

The biscuits and gravy is so good we drive over 30 minutes to eat here... Gets busy on the weekends but the wait is never very long. Prices are great.

Review №12

Grumpy's is a family favorite of mine where they treat you well. Always friendly faces and great food. I want to give a 5 star rating for this facility due to their outstanding performance on making the guest feel at home. Their was also a mis communication last time I was there but the lady took care of it thos time I came in by buying my breakfast. I will continue to support this great atmosphere and environment. Once again thank you for your great service and food.

Review №13

Fantastic service and really great food. We got there early and got seated right away. The waitress was very attentive and they would never leave an empty coffee cup and would refill often. The orders came out perfect and very tasty. We will be back.

Review №14

Ordered a double burger and fries. Food was good but overpriced. They charged $5.99 extra for the additional patty!!!! What??? That's ridiculous and I told them so. Meal was almost $20 for burger fries and ice tea. Service was good. Safety poor. No social distancing for tables. Its a shame because I have been here before with no issues.

Review №15

Today was the third time I visited this place and I got to say it never fails to give a good service. I was a little disappointed that they didn't have breakfast all day, but it was a way for me to try their lunch which I never had before. And I got to say their chicken fingers are awesome. Our waitress Shayna was very attentive and patient. I would definitely recommend this place!

Review №16

It is exactly what the reviews say. Amazing staff. Huge portions and really good. Guacamole and the sweet tea is really good.

Review №17

Mexican food here - super tasty. one of the best spots in the area. the place has a great atmosphere.

Review №18

Good food! Generous portions. Great Service! Good Prices as well!!

Review №19

Omg where do I begin... I moved to San Antonio about 2 months ago.. My sister's kept telling me that i needed to taste this food.. Finally came with one of my sisters.... I have to admit, hands down, one of the best tasting foods i have ever had anywhere... The plates look very presentable and when you taste the food, it is like tasting something homemade....just simoly amazing food...will definitely be coming here a lot! The environment is great and the service honestly is amazing...very friendly and courteous staff.. They make you feel at home!

Review №20

The food was delicious, and with quite a portion! I had the migas plate, and the other shown is the griddle pancakes with strawberries ! They also offer mimosas. Easy casual brunch spot with delicious food.

Review №21

Such an awesome breakfast place! Grumpy's is one of those places that you feel at home in. My family/ in-laws and I have been there at least a handful of times and the food is always delicious. I feel like my in-laws can be pretty picky and for them to go back is just another sign of how good Grumpy's is. I totally recommend the Henry!! The amount of food that is served is just... WOW! One breakfast taco, in my opinion, is the size of 2 or even 3 breakfast tacos you get elsewhere. If you or someone you know has a big appetite definitely try it and if you have a small appetite, you can share or go home with leftovers but I bet you will want to finish your food just because it is that good.

Review №22

Huge portions! Homemade foods, great service and atmosphere!

Review №23

Great ambiance. Very friendly staff. Very tasty appetizers and entrees. Looking forward to coming back.

Review №24

So I was a little nervous coming out here it was in the sticks. I passed it a few times trying to get there but, finally i made it.. The customer service was amazing and the food was great. It's a sunday all we wanted was breakfast tacos and sleep. I like that they give you a variety instead of your normal bean and cheese..

Review №25

Very busy...but super quick. Great customer service. Everyone was really welcoming. The food is good and filling.

Review №26

We had the breakfast. The biscuits, those biscuits, fluffy and light, I had to hold mine down or it would float away. The sausage gravy was nearly perfect, quality sausage. The omelet was cooked perfectly, and the hot sauces were unique, and credibly complimentary.The menu was diverse, and I wanted to try many items, but I only have one stomach. I spied other tables, and the food looks exuberant. I'll be back, and I highly recommend it.Prepare to wait for seating, the secret is out, but a decadent reward.

Review №27

Best food ever !!! Hands down , this place could use a good cleaning , bathrooms are a gross , And the place is super dusty everywhere , cobwebs everywhere I mean ever where . But staff is out of this world , kind and welcoming, food is stupid good !!! One taco is like eating a super taco !! We eat her all the time .

Review №28

Review №32

First time in and I know that we will be back!! The food was great and everyone was so friendly!

Review №33

Great food great service best waitresses I've had in a long time that's number one in my book I recommend this place highly

Review №34

I was excited to try this place out because I saw it on Elder Eats. Unfortunately, I cancelled my order as soon as I looked back into the kitchen and saw no one wearing a mask or gloves. The cashiers were wearing masks, but no one handling your food had any personal protective equipment. Real shame because it looked good. They quickly gave me a refund when I asked for one, but didn't offer any apologies or say that they would change anything.

Review №35

I had chicken and waffles. Absolutely delicious. Their omelets are just as good.

Review №36

The staff is the best. Highly recommended

Review №37

Food was delicious just had to flag the waiter down a few times but overall great good and atmosphere

Review №38

Soo the chicken biscuit breakfast is amazing. Burger is big and enjoyed that. Also homemade potato chip(twisters) are also good. Loads of food for a great price. Breakfast all day on Saturday and Sundays. Closed on Mondays. Tues -Friday breakfast till 11. Thanks for the good food and great service.

Busy as normal for breakfast. The wait time was shorter since a lot of people still aren't going out to eat. Food was quick and service was great.

Review №46

Review №48

Man! I ordered the chicken & waffles plate! It was a big order and amazing! The syrup was really good and the waffle and tenders were made just right! I definitely want to go back!

Review №49

First time there. Noticed people waiting to get in, good sign. A relaxing comfortable atmosphere. Service was good and friendly. The food was tasty and looking forward to going back. The reviews showed a single $ symbol, in my opinion more like a 2.5 $ symbol would be appropriate.

Review №50

Breakfast was so good. Our waitress was friendly and personal. Answered our questions without the eye roll. Loved it.

Review №51

Over the last three years, whether we were with a group, visitors, or just ourselves,  eating at Grumpy's Mexican Restaurant is truly a unique dining experiece.  The owner's personality  is the complete  opposite of the name of the restaurant.  He is always friendly, exuberant, customer oriented,  & wholly involved  in the successful operation of his business.  His staff and workers reflect these  same attitudes.  Customers  are right, the reason for their existence,  and accomodate them with  menu/dish  changes,    extend fixed serving times.for breakfast, & without question remedy any misunderstanding in what was ordered.  Grumpy's did an excellent  job of handing the three group functions I  attended there. All attendees were more than  satisfied &  enthusiastic in their praise of Grumpy's food & service.   Their reasonably  priced menu items of comfort foods should be able to satisfy  your tastes & wallet/purse.  Nothing formal about Grumpy's.   It  has a come as you are, down to earth  relaxing dining atmosphere with interesting  decor & paraphernalia  all over the restaurant.   Their  entryway menu board shows specials  & invites  customer participation  such as "find waitress xxx & tell her ..." or post us on Google Maps.   Highly recommend Grumpy's if you want the best of delicious food, service, leave with a full stomach,  money left over in your wallet,   and  experience  something different, special, &  out of the ordinary.

Review №52

Grumpy's is just an awesome little place with good service and great tasting food! You got to get there early to get a table and skip the wait. Enough said. Highly recommend!!

Review №53

Review №56

Review №57

The chicken fried chicken biscuit smothered in country gravy was delicious! Mimosas were on point and the strawberry rhubarb pie was to die for!

Review №58

Huge portions, good food, very friendly staff. Popular place expect there to be a substantial wait if your coming during the breakfast rush.

Review №59

Review №60

Don't let the exterior look fool you! This place is a gym. The food is delicious and the portion sizes ( for every item ) are HUGE! Would recommend to friends, family and strangers alike. And will definitely be back!

Review №61

This place has great food, and a lot of character...and the service was excellent.

Review №62

I gave it 5 stars because it was good and enormous portions. However, they left out our gravy on our to go order. Fix your new to-go service and this restaurant is just the best there is.

Review №63

I found this place through ksat 12 food and eatsThis place was the bombGreat foodGreat pricesBig menuDesserts are the bestI will be a regular there now

Review №64

Review №65

Review №66

The food here was not only yummy but the portions were insane! It was quite busy when we went but service was still wonderful! Definitely recommend!

Review №67

Great food and quick service. The servings are greater than expected and their strawberry rhubarb pie is a must to take home.

Review №68

Portions and price and great tasting food is what brought me here, I had the charbroiled pork chop lunch special, my goodness those chops were thick and well seasoned and cooked to perfection, I could not finish the entire meal, I left some for dinner. The burger was the size of my face and cooked well and juicy, steak fries were amazing and customer service and prompt service was exceptional. If you are in San Antonio make sure you stop here and try everything on their menu. Decoration and appearance? When food is cooked this good appearance does not matter in this case. This place os not what you expect until you try their food. Thank you for this great dining experience.

Review №69

Review №76

I had the ribeye steak and shrimp plate with a baked potato the Grumpy way and a salad. The portions were HUGE AND EVERYTHING WAS DELICIOUS! I would give Grumpy 4 STARS!!!

Review №77

Amazing food and super friendly staff. A true hidden gem!

Review №78

Friendly staff, great fajita burger (but only for lunch and not on weekends). Have not had other items or else it could have been a 5 star.

Review №79

Delicious home cooked meals. It isn't the most spotless but the portions are huge and the flavo re is on point. The green salsa is AMAZING!

Review №80

Review №82

I meal came with hashbrowns but mine were more like fried mashed potatoes.

Review №83

I ordered the tuna platter when I was told everything here is great. The tuna salad was fresh and flavorful. The plate was colorful and stunning. Everything tasted great. Easily would go again.

Review №84

Bring your appetite!! Grumpy's is an institution it is a great little Mexican breakfast and lunch Cafe the portions are always very large the price is not terribly awful for the amount of food you get and I have rarely ever had a bad meal at Grumpy's it is definitely one of the go to places on the weekends especially if we have company in town today I had their special a chicken fried chicken biscuit covered in sausage gravy with hash browns and two eggs. The portion was very large the chicken was cooked perfectly crispy on the outside moist on the inside the sausage gravy that's what I usually get when I go there is biscuits and gravy a half order only because I can't finish a full order and my daughter got a vegetable omelette which was extremely large and very flavorful if you're in town take the trip out to Exit 175 off of 35 and go to three double o nine and go to the town of bracken where Grumpy's is it's definitely worth the trip the staff is always really helpful and their attentive it's a down-home place and the Ambiance it's it's a cute little Shack that's got an addition added on and there are photos on every wall that represent people's visits to Grumpy's

Review №85

First off, the breakfast tacos are not only gargantuan, they are can't go wrong for only 2.99. All of their food is really good to go along with their hot sauce. The biscuit was a little dry but nothing a little gravy couldn't fix. When you come here, bring your appetite.

Review №86

Enjoyed a delicious lunch, celebrating Father's Day w Chris. Always a great meal!

Review №87

First time customer and now I have my favorite breakfast place. Service was great, food was fabulous and steaming hot. The amount of food served was enourmous. This is a definite go to place. Looking forward to trying their lunch specials. Bravo Grumpy's!! And biggest bottle Cholula Sauce I have ever seen. Lol

Review №88

Great Service, Good Food, Fair Price. The flies were a bit of a nuisance, however.

Review №89

Staff is so very friendly and the food is incredible!

Review №90

Great food and great portions. Just plan ahead when you decide to visit. It gets very packed.

Review №91

I've been coming here for 13 years now. These are Texas burgers at its finest and breakfast tacos at their biggest. The portions are generous, the atmosphere is that of your Grandma's kitchen, and the wait staff is sweeter than Snickers. Sunday mornings are the longest wait, be warned. But catch a brunch Tues-Fri and you're in for a treat.

Review №92

First time visit and we were very pleased with what we ordered. Flavor was much better than expected

Review №93

Wide variety of choices on the menu from Tex-Mex to Southern comfort foods. Far as Mexican dishes, I will give it 3 Stars, reminded me more of a commercial box store TV dinner made in house... I was expecting something more but everyone has their own taste preferences.

Review №94

Honestly, It was the first time eating there and it was a great experience! The food was super delicious, and the stuff were super nice and friendly. I would highly recommended for whom loves the family cozy restaurants.

Review №95

The food is terrific. The service outstanding.

Review №96

Excellent food and service, highly recommend

Review №97

Walked in to be told rudely that the had just closed. Not sure if we will attempt going here again

Review №98

Excellent food and great host.

Review №99

Love them at Grumpy's they are wonderful.

Review №100

While visiting, my daughter brought me to experience this jewel! As she pointed out, everything was incredible... from the regular patrons waiting for their table, the hostess, the servers, and ... the food !!!! Every part of the experience was fantastic!!!Even “Grumpy” himself was a darling. If you're near San Antonio I definitely recommend you stop in ... mimosas and breakfast are always a plus!!
