I have been a regular at Joey's for over ten years. The other day, I asked myself a simple question, ""Why?"" It is by far the most expensive bar in the area. The narrow set up of the bar is an architectural nightmare. The service is slow, slower than just about any place I can recall. But the worst part about this bar is the staff and their attitudes. At best, they are unpleasant, and most nights they are openly contemptuous. They seem to make it their goal to make the customers feel as unwelcome as possible. A few months back, I had several friends from out of town visiting. I took them to Joey's, and wow, that was a huge mistake! I was so embarrassed. All night, I had to hear my friends tell me how horrible the bar scene in San Antonio is compared to Austin, Alberquerque, and Denver. I tried to explain to them that Joey's was not indicative of our town, but to no avail. This is not a good place.
