Chris Madrid’s owner passes away

Chris Madrid's is known in San Antonio for their burgers — from the renowned Tostada Burger to Porky's Delight — and for good reason. The roomy burger joint attracted families, college students, kids, pretty much everyone who enjoyed a big, greasy burger. Founder Chris Madrid first opened the restaurant in the 1970s, and was a warm presence to his patrons. Regrettably, Madrid passed away over the weekend at the age of 61 and is sure to be missed by many.

Culinaria, a city wine and food festival, has a number of events scheduled for May, and while that may seem like a long ways off, tickets are already on sale. Keep in mind two points here: tickets will be more limited this year to avoid long waits for food, and at-the-door prices will cost you up to $25 more a pop. So if you're planning on going, buy your tickets now at culinariasa.org.
