EZs just won't do. You know they actually tried to put mustard and
lettuce on my beanburger once? Blasphemers!

I have not heard the name Sills for a long time. Should I would assume
that is the same folks who used to be on Broadway (?) near the Austin
I never had the opportunity to visit Sill's (in fact, I don't even know when
they closed). Someone believed that they had re-opened in LaVernia a few
years ago, but if they did, they are no longer open.
How did Sill's prepare their beanburger?
Chris Madrid's is a latecomer to the beanburger party. The Sills of
which I speak is indeed the reincarnation of the location that was once
upon a time located at Austin Highway near Broadway, where the Stop N
Go is now. Sills closed down in the early 80s, I believe.
Billy T's, on Austin Highway near Eldon, claims to use the original
Sills recipe, but it's just not the same.
The Sills beanburger, to the best of my recollection, is a toasted bun,
a meat pattie, refried beans, fritos, onions, and Cheez Whiz.
Jalapenos are optional but a welcome addition. Very, very greasy.
My husband and I went to the location that's out Highway 87 a few years
ago, and it was just as good as I remembered it to be.
There's actually a Citysearch page on it -
I'll have to call to find out if they're still around. =)
Thanks. Let us know what you find. My wife seems to think that Billy T's
is pretty close to what she remembers from Sills. While not going as
often as she did growing up, I liked the chili they served.

Disconnected. Bummer. If anyone ever goes out in that direction, take
a peek and see if the restaurant's still there!
