Does This Butter Your Biscuit?
Anything feels convenient on a biscuit, but two new Alamo Biscuit Co. and Panaderia locations are taking that to the next level. The restaurant known for its hot biscuits, pan dulce, and fun environment (including a whimsical outdoors mural), just set up shop at Trinity University and Methodist Hospital Metropolitan last week.
At Trinity University, the biscuit company is sharing a space in the food court on a rotating schedule with two other local eateries. Each will spend a week in the space, so fans of one restaurant will see it pop up every third week for the whole school year.
The program, called Taste of San Antonio, previously offered daily pop-ups, but found that students often missed their favorites in such a quick window. Panaderia items will also be sold daily in the university’s cafeteria in Mabee Hall.
In hospital space (1310 McCullough Ave.), the restaurant is more permanent thanks to a multi-year lease. This location in the lobby relies on counter service to get orders out, but still offers some of the same menu items as the main location on Huebner Road, according to a release.
The release also shares that owner John Vale said opening these two locations in such significant institutions is “a dream come true.” Two more brick-and-mortar locations are reaching the end of the planning stage in the San Antonio area, and Vale anticipates even more locations in the future.
Alamo Biscuit Co. and Panaderia will next be at Trinity Univeristy from September 4-10, 6:30 am to 9 pm on weekdays and 10:30 am to 2 pm on weekends. The Methodist Hospital Metropolitan location is open to the public daily from 5 am to 9 pm. More information is available at alamobiscuitco.com.
