Broadway 50-50 Restaurant Review

: The 50-50 can claim status as an haute honky-tonk --- and an anomaly in its high-toned Alamo Heights ’hood. We aren’t fooled by the bands, the bogus bad-boy attitude or the effigies of Elvis; especially at lunch the service is almost endearingly offhand. Lunch is also less acoustically challenging than evening and our preferred time to sample burgers such as the Guapo topped with refrieds, cheese, chips and salsa --- and accompanied by shoestring potatoes, as size is the major virtue of the eye-popping Shiner Bock-battered onion rings. We don’t recommend “Elvis’s Deviled Eggs” either; they are prettily piped and dusted with paprika, but there is little underlying flavor. Lustier plates include a flatiron steak with garlic mashers and a humongous chicken-fried steak with the same. If it’s Thursday, it must be meatloaf. There’s a kids’ menu, but we recommend taking baby burger-hounds only at lunch or early in the evening, when they are sure to appreciate the brownie à la mode. There are numerous beers to serve as adult burger buddies. Also located in the Colonnade off of I-10 W., 210-691-5050.
