Since 1933, This San Antonio Favorite is Still Going Strong with Classic Recipes and Newly Inspired

Are you looking for local restaurants in San Antonio? Known for its delicious and crisp fried chicken, this legendary San Antonio local food joint has been around longer than many of its current patrons have been alive.

Founded in 1933 by Earl Abel himself, a legendary composer at the birth of Hollywood, Earl Abel’s has withstood the Depression, multiple moves, and now, a pandemic—and came out stronger each time.

In addition to its legendarily mouth-watering fried chicken, this restaurant is notoriously famous for its sinfully delicious pies. The banana cream pie is their top seller, and it shows: the pie is perfectly baked, with the sweet, fresh bananas contrasting perfectly with the denseness of the cream.
