"Broadway, home of Incarnate Word etc"
Broadway is a big road, as the name suggests, that runs North-South. The original Earl Abel's restaurant used to be located at the corner of Hildebrand and Broadway, across from Incarnate Word College, now pompously known at The University of The Incarnate Word. But sadly, Earl Abel's is no more, the restaurant having been razed in 2006 to make way for condos. Back in the eighties SA congressman Henry B. Gonzalez, who famously tried to impeach Ronald Reagan, encountered an op-ed guy from the local paper at Earl Abel's and demanded he apologize for calling him a communist. When he didn't he decked him. To be fair, Earl Abel's has a new location on Austin Highway, albeit without authentic Populuxe architecture from 1940. But the original Pig Stand Diner is still on B'way a few blocks to the south.
