Callum’s Attagirl was once voted as one of the coolest bars in San Antonio. So, if fun is what you’re after, then plan on stopping by this hotspot. In fact, their brunches are legendary, and it’s in part due to their Southern Fried wings. Served with coleslaw and sweet potato hash, it’s a dish you’ll be dreaming and drooling about for a while.
