A San Antonio institution known for its comfort food, namely the fried chicken and pies, Earl Abel's is one of the oldest food establishments in the city, first established in 1933 by Mr. Earl Abel himself.
Though its new location is not the original, nor even the second location, some of the same kitschy decor and all of the same home cookin' have moved from one location to the next over the years. Doubters of its continued quality are kindly reminded that Earl Abel's was voted the Best Fried Chicken by San Antonio Express-News and San Antonio Current Magazine for three years in a row (2020-2023).
