Farther north on Broadway Street: San Antonio’s Pig Stand restaurant, one of only a handful left in the chain. (Some 130 restaurants opened in the 1920s-30s.) From the Web site: “In the initial years the Pig Stand pioneered several food items: Texas toast, deep-fried onion rings, and the country-fried steak sandwich. Not only was the Pig Stand the first restaurant to offer curb and drive-through service, it also was among the first to use fluorescent lighting, neon signs, and air conditioning.” The current owner of this location, Mary Ann Hill, started as a waitress here at age 18 in 1967. #backstory (Taken with Instagram at Pig Stand)
