It all began back in 1958, when Bud Jones returned from a long journey working in the merchant marines and as master chef on a luxury cruise liner. Having grown up at his father's famous "Bob Jones Restaurant" on Roosevelt Avenue, Bud decided to try his own hand in the restaurant business, and opened Bud Jones Restaurant in what was once Walsh's Grocery Store on Military and Commercial. Bud served his first plate of fish and chips in October of 1958. The very day of the restaurant's grand opening, Bud was literally overwhelmed with business. He excused himself from his customers, ran out the back door and begged a woman hanging her laundry next door to please come and help him. Bernice Housos would become Bud Jones's first employee. She continued working at the restaurant for the next 50 years until her death in 2008. Our employees have a habit of sticking around. Many have been with us for more than 25 years. Over the years, the building that houses Bud Jones Restaurant has gone through many changes and additions, including a devastating fire in 1978, and more recently, a global pandemic that almost shut us down. Some restaurants would have never recovered, but thanks to a tremendous amount of help and support from Bud's generous and loyal customers, Bud Jones Restaurant has continued to remain. Â Â Bud's daughter Kathy would take over in 1985 and carry on the Family's legacy until 2019, where she would then pass the reins to her daughter, Kaycee. Who will continue working on the family tradition, ensuring that Bud Jones Restaurant remains a part of San Antonio's landscape for years to come! If you're a long-time customer, we thank you for your continued patronage. If you've never dined with us before, come visit us and see why we've been a San Antonio favorite since 1958.
Excellent food, warm inviting hospitality and excellent customer service. Would definately recommend and happy to return. We ordered the Broilers Delight, Buds basket, kids spaghetti and one all you can eat fish and fries. Everything was delicious.
The food was so delicious. The waitresses were on point . They were so friendly and nice great customer service .
This is a local neighborhood favorite. I just happened to stumble across it. I ate every morsel. It was deliscious. Great place and friendly people. Place was clean, service was fast.
Great experience always! The onion rings and stuffed mushrooms were great appetizer choices. The chicken fried chicken and fried fish were on point... but the real winner was the enchiladas! Hands down a great choice!
This is an old established restaurant that I've been visiting for years. Food is very good and the staff is always friendly. Everything I've tried has always been great but my favorites are the chicken fried steak and the large beef enchiladas. Be warned, the portions are large. They have a large dining area and plenty of parking. It's always a treat going to Bud Jones for dinner.
