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.
Any list of civilized amenities that the seventh-largest city in the United States ought not to do without has to include — along with a concert hall, major-league baseball, light rail, and Equity theater — a vegetarian restaurant. The list shrank dramatically on January 22 with the opening on North Flores, just beyond downtown, of Green, which bills itself as “San Antonio’s first all-vegetarian restaurant.”
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)

Small patio for those who want to enjoy the great weather as of late and enjoy a variety of music on the sound system. And of course your gracious host, Pepe' Lopez, is just, well gracious.
Salsa is extremely good here. Dishes are interesting and exciting vs. familiar and soul.
Fast Food Salads. Get huge customized salads and wraps made right in front of you by their Salad Chefs. Fresh ingredients and the general public is not touching your food like at a salad bar.

Fresh, piquant, and authentic Thai cuisine makes it hard to pick a favorite dish, but we’re currently stuck on Rice of the Drunks and the Chicken Larb.
Justly famous for its fish tacos, the Cove is also a good location for locavores and vegetarians thanks to owner Lisa Asvestas’s commitment to sustainable food sources (she can tell you where to find raw milk, too).

A vegetarian in Texas is a stranger in a strange land. In the countryside, steaks-in-waiting graze for miles and miles, and in the urban environs, vegetarians are greeted by Texas Land and Cattle, Outback Steakhouse, barbacoa, and menudo. What's a sprout-muncher to do? Whether you drop in for lunch at the downtown location at Broadway and Travis or enjoy a leisurely Saturday morning breakfast at the North New Braunfels locale, Twin Sisters is a vegetarian's paradise. - Lisa Sorg
SA's only all-vegan restaurant now offers gluten-free baked goods in addition to Tex-Mex and raw offerings. Not sure if you're ready to go meat-free? The green chili and lentil burger or sun-dried tomato and sweet potato enchiladas, topped with cashew cream, could take you all the way.

What do Bowling for Soup, Meat Loaf, Norah Jones and the guy who wrote the Schoolhouse Rock theme have in common? That’s right, they all hold the Denton connection. Certainly the small North Texas town has pumped out a disproportionality high number of musical icons (can’t forget Sly Stone and Don Henley), but it’s also packaged its own distinct sound. Led by the likes of Midlake, Sarah Jaffe and Centro-matic, it’s a style rich with thickly layered harmonies, Americana-friendly melodies and folksy instrumentation (i.e. lots of banjo). Seryn fits squarely into this tradition, with all five members contributing vocals and multi-instrumental skills to weave their richly textured sound. They also pack enough four-on-the-floor kick drum punch and shout-along choruses (Hey!) to endear them to the Mumford and Lumineers faithful. Still touring behind their 2011 debut This Is Where We Are, the band plays Sam’s with support from Austin-based indie-rockers Quiet Company.
In collaboration with Jeff Keithline, Elizabeth Keithline exhibits an installation of full-scale woven wire trees and human figures.
Based on travels along the length of the U.S./Mexico border and encounters with residents, fence contractors, border patrol officers and journalists, New York artist Blane De St. Croix’s “Broken Landscape III” reconstructs a selection of the border as a “monumental miniaturized section” that divides the gallery space.
