They seem to be worried if the new things would destroy the mom and pop type stores? My question is just how much worth are these stores? How much revenue are they bringing into the city? There has to be some competition in this town, its good for bussiness and might keep some of those dollars here in Floresville. Too many mexican restaurants as it is already and none to really jump up and down about. The city needs to decide if they want growth and income or not. Absolutely nothing to do here for families with kids and different variety of restaurants to eat at.

I just met a San Antonian that ended up in Floresville a couple weeks ago, and described it as anything, but desirable, and then back tracked a little after I told him I lived there. Terms he used "Scary, Texas Chain Saw Massacre Territory, Deliverance Country, thought I was going die" Nothing about a quaint little town of friendliness. It made me laugh and grimace. I'm pretty sure Trail Riders Steak House and Cycle Ranch are about the only good things I ever hear a non-local reference, and occasionally Maverick's. We don't have any B&B's (that I know of), I see all these signs for antique stores, but they never seem to be opened(except finders keepers), we have a very small selection of decent restaurants or hardly any with outdoor seating, and I swear the McDonald's is the slowest fast food restaurant in the world. If there are more things to attract people to Floresville they aren't advertised or easily visible. I was super excited to hear about the balloon festival, but it has been dampered a bit by there only being 8-12 balloons, but we'll likely still go or at least drive by. When I go to San Antonio I most certainly am not eating at a Chili's, Denny's, Apple Bee's, Olive Garden etc.. There are way too many restaurants to try then to get hung up at one of those, and some great kid friendly ones at that. That is one of the best perks to living so close. Although I'd love to have a Willie's Ice House in Floresville. For a chain, it's awesome. Do we have any sit down restaurants other than Jack's that serve breakfast?
