GBG’s extensive menu includes Certified Angus Beef (CAB) burgers, chicken and turkey burgers, and specialty burgers made of lamb, Maryland-style crab cakes, Ahi tuna, Portobello mushrooms, Kobe beef, North American Bison and vegetarian patties. Burgers are served on sourdough and whole-grain wheat rolls that are baked each day to ensure guests enjoy the freshest ingredients.
Options such as crinkle-cut and sweet potato fries, beer-battered onion rings and battered mac-and-cheese wedges are popular sides, as well as an assortment of salads. Soups are created each morning and include favorites such as Roasted Pumpkin Bisque, Turkey Chili, Smoked Gouda Bisque, and New England Clam Chowder.
Another distinguishing characteristic of GBG’s menu is its vast array of cheeses, sauces and toppings. Twelve cheeses are offered, including Camembert, fresh mozzarella, and goat cheese, along with 28 sauces and toppings, ranging from basil pesto aioli and chipotle mayo to apple-smoked bacon, mango avocado salsa, grilled pineapple and fried eggs.
On a healthy note, all fried foods are prepared using zero trans-fats, and each burger can be served on a lettuce wrap for a low-carbohydrate dining alternative. Finally, as an additional gourmet treat, all GBG sauces and salad dressings are made in-house from scratch.
Owner Jorge Cosio, a veteran restaurateur originally from Mexico City, drew inspiration for the GBG concept from restaurants in London, Las Vegas and New York City. He teamed with Chef Mike Davis to bring the unique restaurant to fruition. Davis, who has worked with such celebrated chefs as Emeril Lagasse and Mario Batali, has more than 20 years of experience, including five years as Executive Chef at Piatti Ristorante in the Alamo Quarry Market.
Everything from scratch. A nice healthy blend of raw food, vegetarian and meat dishes, pizzas, soups, salads, teas and espresso. Enjoy indoor/outdoor dining in a very artistic environment.
The entrees are healthier and less Tex than Mex by SA standards, but the chips and salsa outshine the main menu. Don't skip dessert, though, even if the only veggie you ate was salsa. Vegetarian entree options available. -- Clint Hale (11/08)
Hilly also does more than passable pasta, the dish of shrimp in lemon-caper sauce over angel hair being a briny/buttery success, and the baked penne with mini meatballs and four cheeses delicate beyond expectations. Desserts are made “for us but not by us,” yet the ubiquitous tres leches was appealingly moist and well-flavored, so the source is apparently a good one.
Beer bottlecaps crunch under your feet under the city’s best tree canopy. Such is the atmosphere at La Tuna, a Southtown fixture where bikers and artists peacefully coexist over cheap beers in the shadow of one of SA’s coolest industrial backdrops.

"Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen." (Hebrews 11:1) Not to worry: If ever there were someone not qualified to opine on matters biblical, 'twould be I. But the preceding verse is burned into my mind by virtue of its posting on the wall of the group cycling room at the Downtown YMCA - where another kind of burning also goes on - that of the calories implied by this article and all others past and future. It's also especially appropriate to the Leap of Faith Café, located in the basement of Travis Park United Methodist Church. Connie Marshall, the café's congenial owner/hostess/guiding light, abandoned her two popular Seasons Café and Bakery locations for a subterranean site, which, in spite of exposed limestone walls, track lighting, and displays of art (affecting portraits of homeless people comprise the current show), still seems very much the church basement it is - with long, communal tables covered with oilcloth. There is more at work here than marketing, and a certain amount of faith is required of the first-time diner; a sandwich board at the street level is the only overt indication of the café's location. It's the only evidence of things not (yet) seen. - Ron Bechtol
Wonderland versions of lunching-lady staples (grilled hummus sandwich) are rounded out with Southwesternized salads (Original Warm Pork Tamale Salad) and old-school desserts such as lemon-chess pie. All served in a funky-quaint converted set of King William bungalows. Fun weekend brunches, too. -- Ron Bechtol (08/09)
Paletta's is closed, and sorely missed.

Foreign film buffs might know Chile’s Sebastián Silva from his Sundance Film Festival hits The Maid (which took home two World Cinema Jury Prizes in 2009) and this year’s Crystal Fairy (starring indie fave Michael Cera opposite Gaby Hoffmann). True fans, however, will tell you to start at the beginning. Released in 2007, Silva’s Life Kills Me deftly combines the ironic melancholia of The Smiths, the dark comedy of Harold and Maude, and a bizarre film within a film into a morbid sleeper suggesting death might be smarter to embrace than to fear. Shot almost entirely in black and white, the openly gay director, screenwriter, painter, and musician’s cinematic debut screens at SAMA in conjunction with Global Lens 2013, a touring series launched by the Global Film Initiative in 2003.
Regarded as one of the architects of contemporary R&B, 10-time Grammy winner Kenny “Babyface” Edmonds brings heartfelt and impeccable music for grown folks to the Lila Cockrell stage on Friday. After writing and producing hits for Bobby Brown in the late ’80s, Edmonds joined former bandmate Antonio “L.A.” Reid to create LaFace Records, propelling acts like TLC, Toni Braxton, and Usher into the public consciousness. By the end of the ’90s the young producer was responsible for 42 No. 1 R&B hits and 51 Top 10 Pop hits. A gifted performer in his own right, fans can expect plenty of material from his 11 solo albums, including classics like “Whip Appeal” and “For the Cool in You,” which recall an era of R&B when records didn’t necessarily require 16 bars to make it on the radio.

After going through two drummers, two guitarists, and four bass players, Piñata Protest has perfected its sound with El Valiente, the band's latest album. Going back to its norteño and punk-rock roots, Piñata celebrates the two cultures by transforming favorites like "Volver, Volver" and "La Cucaracha" into punk tracks and creating music that depicts life on the border, living biculturally, and finding yourself in between.
