SA - Are all Blanco Cafes created equal?

I've been searching the boards and came up with some positive references to Blanco Cafe. Some say good for breakfast and others say good for lunch. Of course, it must be good since they have FIVE locations, right? Now, one not very recent comment mentioned that only one of the locations has handmade tortillas -- the original, 1720 Blanco Rd? Can anyone speak to the differences in locations, or at least say "Heavens, no, don't go to THAT one!" BTW, I'm probably leaning toward a breakfast taco run unless you folks tell me otherwise. Thanks!

Blanco Cafe
5525 Blanco At Oblate Rd, San Antonio, TX 78201

  1. Well, I've only been to the original (many times, over three decades), so I know you can't go wrong there. I hope somebody else can comment on how the other locations compare to it, but I would say go to the original (for lunch--I can't comment on their breakfast tacos) and accept no substitutes.
