A Salute to Flagstop Cafe

Growing up, my parents were fond of ferreting out those mom-and-pop  eateries. As fate would have it, I wound up with a double dose of the “hole-in-the-wall” gene. This means, of course, though I’ve dined at some great places, I get giddy when I eat well in places that’d never end up in fancy guidebooks or newspapers. 

Living out here between San Antonio and Boerne, there are a couple of such places. My favorite among them, however, is Flagstop Cafe. Yup, I like to eat at a gas station/convenience store/carwash/grill combo. And I really like to eat breakfast there on a weekend morning–along with about half of Fair Oaks, Texas.

On a recent March mid-week morning, I got the idea to treat Tater Tot and myself to a full-fledged brunch of Flagstop breakfast tacos and pancakes. On the way out the door, I grabbed the camera, too. Here’s what I came back with (besides a full belly):

This is a fairly decent depiction of an actual burger I once ate here.


Pilar in the kitchen.


It sure says "roadside eatery," doesn't it?


Breakfast tacos with bacon and heavenly homemade pico de gallo.


The underside of this pancake was ever so slightly crunchy.
