RESTAURANT OF THE WEEK
A PERSONAL REVIEW OF RESTAURANTS AROUND THE WORLD

THE GREY MOSS INN
HELOTES, TEXAS
 

I like restaurants that have "been there forever" and this one fits the bill perfectly! This place has been there since 1929!  It's just a short and scenic drive from the Alamo City of San Antonio and is famed for it's grilled meats.

They have a limited appetizer selection including a nice shrimp cocktail and some really tempting sautéed mushrooms.  A handful of salads are offered but none is intended to be a meal unto itself.

Most people I know who dine at the Grey Moss go for a nice, juicy, tender steak cooked rare.  But for some reason when I go there, I usually go with the chicken.  It's some of the best you'll ever savor grilled over a mesquite wood fire.  They also offer succulent lamb chops and plenty of seafood offerings heavy on lobster.  And relatively recently they even added a vegetarian entree!

I usually don't go for dessert but it would be a crime not to have a slice of rich pecan pie here.  It's sensational!

This is a charming place that serves up top notch Texas grub with very friendly service.  The Grey Moss Inn is located just a short hop from San Antonio on Scenic Loop Road in Helotes, Texas.  Actually their exact address is a bit confusing.  Most locals consider it a San Antonio restaurant yet it is located in Helotes.  But not exactly.  Their formal address is Grey Forest, Texas!   Reservations are highly suggested.  Their number is (310) 695-8301.  Their web site is located here complete with directional help!
