Airport Blogging

by Meghann on May 17, 2009

I am currently at my gate gearing up to take off and head back to good ole O-town. I have to admit after a solid 5 days of San Antonio I am very much ready to head back home, get back to my old routine and see my little Abbie (Who I’ve heard has been a very naughty girl since I have been away!)

This morning I was awoken by my Dad inquiring if I was going to get up and exercise. It was almost 7:00am and my parents are used to me waking them up at 6:00am as I sneak out the door for a morning run. I rolled over and told them today was my rest day. God bless Sundays!

Unfortunately exercise or not my parents were still ready for breakfast so I got up got, dressed and we headed out to San Antonio to find a decent Sunday morning breakfast that didn’t involve a $$ buffet. After speaking to a local and some nice cops we were directed to G/M Steakhouse for a cheap & easy breakfast.

We were told this was a famous breakfast spot and at a more reasonable hour is filled to capacity with people waiting to get their greasy food. As soon as we entered we were greeted with the quick order staff who began coking our order in front os us as soon as we ordered it. The menu was a Tex-Mex mix of classic american breakfast entrees as well traditional Meixcan ones as well.

As per usual I grabbed a lovely Fruit Bowl to start my meal.

I also order the Ham Omlette with no Cheese that came with Potatoes and a Biscuit.

I ate all of the omlette and just a couple of bites of potato. I smothered the Biscuit in grape jelly and enjoyed every bite of the fresh baked biscuit as well.

I honestly think breakfast is my favorite meal to eat out. I love biscuits, pancakes, omlettes and just about every other breakfast menu out there. So, so good!

After breakfast we walked around the Alamo and Riverwalk one last time before heading to the Market Square for some tacky souvinier shopping.

I bought a cute mexican themed shirt and we picked up some extra pasteries from Mi Tierra to share at home.

Sadly, it was time to pack up the hotel room and head home after this, but we still had one last stop that was a must before we got to the airpot.

My parent’s are big fans of the Pappas chain of resteraunts and as there are none in Florida when ever they’re in a town that has one, it is a must see attraction. I have heard stories of the different Pappas from various other relatives and was eager to try the famous PappaDeaux before we left.

For those of you who are like me and have never heard of the Papa’s before, it is a chain of different types of Papas that I believe are really big all over Texas. They have Pappasitos Cantinas, Pappa’s Grill, Pappa’s Steakhouse, an itallian themed one, a Greek themed one and so on and so on.

PappaDeaux is their Cajun themed version and what screams cajun more then really good cheap crawfish?

We ordered two pounds of the Crawfish to split between the three of us.

This was my first experience with Crawfish, so it was a bit of a new challenge to learn to take a part and eat the tiny bit of meat that came in side.

The crawfish were covered in a great spicy cajun butter sauce that added a nice kick to the meat. I also had a couple of the new potatoes and the spicy corn as well. I really enjoyed the messy experience and can see why my parent’s love this place.

With the crawfish I also ordered a Tomato Beefsteak Salad with dressing on the side.

I loved the great bits of Blue Cheese on the Tomato. The tomatoes were so juicy that after I cut them up there was no need for any dressing.

They also served this amazing loaf of warm french bread with the food that I had a small piece of and enjoyed dipping in the spicy drippings from the crawfish.

My flight doesn’t take off for a while. My Mom believes in making it to the airport SUPER early so I have tons of time to kill. Good thing San Antonio ha jumped on the free Wi Fi bandwagon. I’m thinking there might be a smoothie or soft serve ice cream in my near future. You will just have to stay tuned to see! 😉

Awesome dinner!! I’ve never had crawfish but they seem like such a regional classic. And I definitely agree, breakfast foods are totally the best.

Have a safe flight!

There’s a Pappadeux not far from my house, and we’ve never been!

I know what you mean about wanting to get back home to your normal routine! I am like that a lot too!

Holy hilarious comment from your Dad?!

Ugh, airport waiting is the worst. It sounds like you had a great trip and I loved seeing all of your great reviews at all of the different eat spots you hit up.

Have a safe fight home.

Take care!

There is a Pappadeux here and my dad just told me it was cajun food, so I expected a very casual setting and it was super fancy and expensive and I was way way under dressed when I went! Have a safe flight!

We have a Pappadeux in Chicagoland – I actually didn’t like our two experiences there – I thought the seafood was just okay – glad you liked the crawfish!

Crawfish??? I’ve never tried it before!!! Looks sooo cool!

The Pappas family started their restaurants in Houston. They are Greek so most of their places have an amazing greek salad. Pappasittos is VERY good for more upscale Tex-Mex. Oh how I miss it.

Glad you enjoyed my home state!
