Five Star Dining and Experience – I rarely, if ever, give 5 stars. Pam's Patio Kitchen is by far one of the best places to dine in San Antonio. It' s tucked away in a quaint corner of a small strip center and has a wonderful atmosphere. I always catch myself saying, "wow I really don't feel like I'm in San Antonio". It's a unique place to dine in and they have a fantastic lunch menu. Their salads and sandwiches are second to none. I highly recommend trying them out, you will not be disappointed.
San Antonio's BEST neighborhood dining – This place is, without a doubt, the best value in innovative, delicious Southwest themed cousine in San Antonio. Tucked away in a neat little corner near Wurzbach and Lockhill-Selma, the atmosphere, delicious food, and subtle ambience make for a near perfect evening. Try their salmon sandwich for lunch. You won't be disappointed! Their wine list, overall, offers some of the best values I have ever seen at such a chic, yet laidback dining establishment. Go casual. Pam and David will always make you feel welcome. So go to Pam's. I promise you will be back.
I love this place – I love eating at Pam's! Lunchtime my favorite is the salmon sandwich. I know I was reluctant at first but my friend urged me to try it and it is awesome. It is grilled salmon with a chipolte mayo that is perfect.! Yum I am getting hungry! My boyfriend loves the Reuben! They have this great bread they make there to go with the salads and soup and my salmon sandwich is made with it as well.
Dinner works different with waitstaff instead of lunchtime counter service. The menu is different too. I can still get my salmon sandwich but last week I had this chicken dish with fresh tomato and basil on some sort of polenta. Awesome- I don't remember the name of the dish but it was a special. My boyfriend had the ribeye and almost licked his plate.
Our waitress was really cute and bubbly. The place rocks - great food, fun atmosphere, and an attentive staff!
The menu insn't all five star !! – I went to Pam's on the advice of a neighbor, who goes often.
I sat in their patio, which is large & very pleasant, to order dinner. I asked the waiter if their tortilla soup had chicken & avacado, as they prepare in in other Mexican restaurants, in San Antonio, as well as Acapulco, where I lived for 16 years. When the waiter said they do, I ordered a bowl.
The pieces of chickenc & avacado were literally microscopic, & the soup was mainly filled chick peas.
Then I ordered a 'Reuben' sandwich with pastrami as my choice of meat, with extra slices of cheese. When my pumpernikel bread sandwich arrived, it was so soggy, the ends of the sandwich both drooped, so I had to use two hands just to keep it from falling apart. The extreme sogginess was caused by the sauerkraut being very wet; it wasn't drained or dried. The water made the usually sturdy pumpernickel literally droop!
Their 'homemade' Russian dressing tasted very
un-Russian, and off-taste, to say the least.
Pam came over to ask how the food was, and I told
her why the sandwich was a great disappointment.
I told her, frankly, that Jason's 'Reuben' was the
way to make a 'Reuben', where the amount of meat put on is enormous, and the sauerkraut is never water-logged. (It's also much less expensive).
I didn't even get to mention the extra cheese I ordered
could not be found, probably because they added only their one,usual, slice. (I ordered three extra slices of cheese that I could not see or taste.)
After hearing my descriptive low opinion, she smiled and walked away, never offering to make anything 'right.'
I could not finish the other half that terrible (and expensive) sandwich, so I had it packed & took it home. At home, it was even more unappetizing,
because had become even more 'soupy.'
I threw it away.
The two items I ordered came to $15 and change.
Expensive for such poor preparation of two very common food items.
Pam's declining to make any offer to make my dining experience end more enjoyablly,-- the true mark of all good restaurant hosts, convinced me not to return.
I'm sure other items are just fine-- but I had two 'strike-outs' in a row, with no offer of a 'happier ending' from Pam.
Pretty patio but "pricey" – The patio is such a nice lunch spot. Sunny, many plants, nice seating. The food is good, but the meals are a bit over priced.
I went with a friend from work and the tab was $20 even after a tip. Even though you wait in line for your food and then take it to the table yourself, if you are waiting on part of you meal to be delivered because it was not ready quite yet - Ill tip. In addition, they come by and clean up.
I just think that a $10 per person lunch in the middle of a work day is a bit high.
I have been pleased with the plating of the food - fresh fruit slices and bread is served on the side.
Great atmosphere. Owners are there every night. Excellent food and service. – Excellent food. Unique soups, salads and dishes. Variety of dishes with a flair of unique mexican food. Chicken Tortilla soup is unique. Lunch has great sandwiches. Home made desserts. Price is slightly higher but it is well worth it.
I strongly recommend it.
Awesome!! – I loooove this place. its a gem . The tortilla soup is sooo yummy with fresh avacado, cilantro and homemade tortilla strips on top. I love the veggie sandwich and my son always likes the peanut butter and jelly. The staff here is excellent...always pay attention and say hello to everyone. my son loves it here too!
Delicious Tomato Basil Soup! – Delicious Tomato Basil Soup, it's the BEST! Also, free bread with your meal that's out of this world. I had the BLT and even the bacon was extraordinary. Mango sauce was something that I had never before experienced; just a slight tingle to the tongue. The desserts looked decadent. Check out this place. Corner of Wurzbach and Lockhill-Selma.
Editorial Review – A cozy dining room and pleasant patio await diners at this counter service deli serving soups, fresh salads and sandwiches.
I can't stop craving this place!!! – I just loved this little place!!! It is a soup and sandwich type of place with real fresh fruit with everything! The whole place is artsy and fun, with the small cute details (the lemonade has fresh strawberries floating in it). They serve these homemade tortilla chips with a peach salsa, as a side. Very cute I will go back soon, and then some!
