"A little bit of everything, and a lot of traffic"

Blanco Road is one of the longest roads in San Antonio. Some parts of it are less than pleasant (mostly to the South), with low-rent commercial districts and even lower-rent housing, although as you go further North, the appearance and climate gets better. The street itself is not in the best condition, and traffic is almost always awful. However, a large multi-million dollar expansion project has already begun on the northern part of Blanco to try and alleviate some of the traffic problems.

"Busy Street, a lot of traffic"

Blanco is a VERY busy street in San Antonio and, unfortunately, as it crosses Huebner, it goes from 4 lanes to 2, making it even busier. It has many good resturants and grocery shopping (a new Super HEB has just been upgraded on Blanco and 1604) and it will ultimately take you out to the National Park and winds up through the Hill Country. However, since it is one of the only roads that goes into that area, the traffic gets to be very bad. So, although the area is nice and growing, the street remains a problem on weekdays.

"Blanco Road in SA"

Blanco Road is over 20 miles long. No, really- but that's if you count the stretch that goes outside of city limits. It goes south all the way to downtown, then north past the loop where it becomes. TX Highway 2696. Chris Madrid's, “home of the macho-burger”, is located on Blanco, a couple of blocks south of the intersection with Hildebrand, and is always very popular. So is Los Barrios, one of the best Mexican restaurants in a town full of them, on the 4000 block, just south Basse road. The Oblate School of theology, one of the oldest Catholic seminaries in the south is also on Blanco, a bit farther north.
