Lunch Tuesday was spent at Bill Miller BBQ. Bill Miller BBQ opened in 1950 as a family-owned and operated restaurant. It was started by (again, who else but) Bill Miller over 60 years ago and continues to be one of the best BBQ places around.

|Please excuse the blurry cell phone pic. I was so ready to dig in!|
I opted for hash browns as my side. Bill Miller has browns are in-cred-uh-ble. The use skin-on potatoes and pan fry them to the perfect amount of golden brown, with a touch of onion, salt and pepper.
I also snagged myself some pickles (because no BBQ is complete without dill pickles) and a piece of their rye bread just to have a few bites. Yum!
My coworker opted for the 2-meat plate, which comes with 3 sides and a drink.
Not only does Bill Miller have amazing bar-b-q, but they have at least equally amazing pies. We split a piece of their apple pie (my dad and grandpa's favorite) for dessert.
This pie has a splendid, flaky crust and is sprinkled with cinnamon and sugar on top. It was the perfect sweet treat at the end of a great lunch.
For dinner, I met my parents for some authentic Mexican food. Jacala ("huh-call-uh") is the oldest restaurant in San Antonio to be run by the same family. It's off the beaten path and is typically either simply stumbled upon or introduced by word of mouth.

Next up was the main course. Again, I got over-excited and forgot to take a before picture. But this is about halfway through...
My mom got the Regular Dinner (middle of the right side), which consists of 3 cheese enchiladas, 1 puffy taco and beans.
My dad got his standard: the Dinner Platter (top middle), which consists of 3 cheese enchiladas, 2 puffy tacos, rice and beans.
By the end of the day, I was stuffed! It's not often that I indulge quite so much, but when you're trying to cram so many of your favorite restaurants into only 2 days, you do what you gotta do!
