Ropes course and zip, rails we, got a climbing, towers and there's even something for the little toddlers and kids down below as well kind of a tykes course and this is where the FBI comes to train right. Okay. Well it looks like it this is incredible, I whose, idea was it to build this massive structure well we wanted to continue to find other fun things we could add here that, kind of fit with our outdoor nature adventure and fun theme and so we, found this attraction from a manufacturer, here. In the United States and just thought it was a great fit and we. Had a traditional zipline system with this for. A while but just this year we added the zip rail system, so there's seven different zip rails around, this thing and you ride them yourself and they curve and and change directions and it's kind of like a zipline but you're on a fixed rail so it's a lot of fun this, is incredible. It is massive. Y'all I mean I hope you can see the scale here I'm, gonna tell a guy but this is massive. Now this, is just one facet of all the incredible things that you guys have going on out here we're gonna take a tour we're gonna go inside the caves we're gonna check out the other things here on the property this, is where you come out to have fun with the whole family this is where you do it I'm just, so glad to be here today thank you so much Travis for having us out here you bad glad to have you if, you love Donuts you're gonna love this place.

Better and right in front right there those, are tiger, doughnuts but explain to me why, you have Tiger doughnuts okay so next, week we will be donating 50%. Of the sales of these tiger doughnuts to, the San Antonio soup we're, really near and we're really friends with them so we're. Trying to help out a little bit as, much as you can right as much as me and they retire there which is the man that's the best part to, help raise funds for the San Antonio Zoo the art of donut has a tiger donut, that's right nothing to do with Jo exotic, all right it helps raise funds for the San Antonio Zoo by, offering 50% of the money that they make goes, right back to home and it's delicious so it's a win-win for you this.

You so much give me some foot absolutely. Delicious. Come. Get the fritters this is where it's at. Wow. Now. We're heading off to a restaurant, that's grilling up some of the best chicken you'll find. Right. Now we're headed to a joint that's dishing out some tasty. Boil. Located. Down the street from the Natural Bridge Caverns is a restaurant, serving up some amazing chicken, this is poised to saw the cell Gayo.
Joining. Us now is Alex Lezama and you've brought all this delicious, food out here and, we got a no it's called post-assad, oh so you know that the chicken is the star but you have crazy, beef plates here on the side as well we. Sure do let's. Start off with a, Pollyanna, beef, fajitas with this. You get nopales. You. Got a seal, a Colorado. Onions. And, a. Chili wrap nothing, like we call that just a bacon-wrapped pepper, but, you're like a chili rabbit. Shorten. It up that's. A fancy version of it though okay this one this, is like when. You go out to a restaurant you, might expect this this is like what you could put this this. Is like next-level this is a breathtaking, amount. So. Short. Ribs and short, ribs or Costco, so you're gonna see four, to five smaller. Bones which usually when. You do cut a nice asados, you. Come in and you start doing all the way around and that's, what we have if. You're feeling really hungry you got to order the big short rib plate it's enough food to last you or, your family, for at least the whole week. Talk. To me about this one right here I mean it's it's just covered in gooey cheese so that is the loaded. Papas. Gallo. So, we have potatoes. We have bacon, we have asada, and we, have cheese, all integrated. Into that large. Amount, of potato, in there say that again for me what is on there so, we have. Potato. Bacon. Asada. And just, more potatoes, oh he. Just took me to a spiritual, place right now a doc. This. Is by far the coolest everything. Loaded baked potato I've ever seen it's got all the cheese on it it's got some meat on there it looks, absolutely delicious. And, then. The reason why a lot of people will come out here this. Is the Boyles of Solace this is why people, this isn't a name of the restaurant is correct so what is special about y'all is out here so. We. We. We were three individuals, who sat down about two and a half years ago and. We said alright you know let's, do something there's other people doing it so, everything was just a combination perfect, place and we. Came up with what. You call for, your salad there's a lot of other places around San Antonio that are doing it they're marinating, the chicken there's, a lot of different ways to marinate, it but overall, is that you're gonna get this barbecued. Finished chicken it's gonna be put on the grill and, you marinate it how long y'all marinate your chicken there's, various ways to marinate, it we usually marinated, for about 30 minutes for 40 minutes so that it penetrates, very. Fast very well and it gives you that orange, color. And crisp on top and, then you you cannot have for yourselves without your. Caramelized. Onions, so, it's. Like hand in hand right you. Add some lemon and some salt and your chicken and you're. In heaven check this out y'all see, you put the lime on top of the chicken this, is why you come out here y'all this is the bite. Really. Good oh my. Goodness, since a night. That. Is the most tender chicken I've ever had if. You want the most delicious, chicken, that you'll ever try in your whole life you got to come out here to boil so saw this alga Oh change.

We're here on the northwest side of San Antonio to go inside of a food truck that's serving up some killer turkey legs this is Texas front yard barbecue. Joining. Us now is the Melly Delgado we're out here at Texas front yard this is the food truck that you got to come out to to get the turkey legs you've seen all across social media here in San Antonio why. Turkey legs simply because you can only get it during the carnivals, and PSN, so like that but I figure just have it all year round with us this isn't the typical way you see a turkey now I have to talk to me about the preparation, and what goes into making it we smoked them overnight, we put, our secret sauce on the top of it and then, we throw them back in the pit and we. Let them just simmer in that steam, you guys ready for this. Yeah, falls, right off the bone that's what people want, i'ma dip some of this in there. So. There's a bite right there. Hmm. Oh yeah, lamellae, it's delicious brother yeah that, is really good the, turkey, has a really tender which. Is kind. Of unique because usually when you go to a carnival it's, like you're tugging on them you know yeah it's, a different texture to them you're getting a little bit of sweet a little bit of vinegar and a little bit of that cheesy goodness on there and it's into, the meat so, that flavors all throughout this is not South. Texas this is not Central Texas what's, the influence on the dish I. Don't. Know it's. Just. Come to you it did, the. Turkey legs out here are so special. There's nothing like it here in San Antonio let, alone Texas, and they have amazing flavors. With it it's like an Italian dressing cheese, sauce that goes on top you, pull up the bone and all the meat just falls right off this. Is what you need to try, the. Crispy, dog and iconic. This is more of a Hispanic traditional. Item you've made this growing up it has, the cheese in there you've got the hotdog it's rolled up it's fried it's either put in the pan deep fryer you're, doing a little something different out here they, got like a slaw on top of it but it's like a Pico slaw mm-hmm, I'm give it a try. Look. At that oh it's, crispy. Oh. You. Have yeah, yeah like I. Love. That oh so. Good I'll the slaw on the outside nice, little vinegar touch to it but then the mustard really sets it over that level too and then the fresh produce that's on there really, helps balance out some of that fat that you're getting from the hot dog hot, dogs cooked perfectly, the crispy tortilla on the outsides cooked perfectly and then you got that cheesy goodness in there this is like a Hispanic.
Kolache. That's. Really good I love this. An. Iconic, classic dish, that you're not growing up is the crispy dog but here they're taking it to the next level and they're putting on some of this kind of cabbage. Slaw pico de gallo on top putting, that mustard on there so the mustard really helps bite through all that flavor of the fat and the oil it's delicious, and the crispness on the outside they're, putting the crispy and crispy dog but.

Tallest column in the Natural Bridge Caverns, is 50 feet tall, now. Back to Texas, eats. Now. We're heading to my backyard to go grill up some kabobs. Right. Now we're in my backyard and we're gonna be making chicken and beef teriyaki skewers. I've, prepared a couple already I'm gonna walk you through the steps on how to assemble them I have bell peppers red, onions, mushrooms. Pineapple. And what you want to do is cut everything into about a one-inch cube, that includes the meat as well so if you have chicken you have beef I have two of them assembled, but we're gonna season them all together. Once this is done I got a regular potato this is one that you would bake in the oven cut. It into cubes put, it on a skewer and what we're gonna do is season it put it on the grill with, our steak and chicken all right the first thing you want to do is put a little stopper, at the bottom of your skewer, I'm, using my mushroom for that this is a sirloin cut from butcher it's.
The Good stuff right there look at that I'm. Gonna go with two pieces of red onion, pop. These on, just. Like that between everything you use make, sure you're putting a piece of meat because that, is the highlight that is the star of this dish so they'll go like that we're. Gonna put a bell pepper on there put. A little bit of pineapple on here as well because it is teriyaki, right another. Piece of meat and. Then we're gonna top it off with. Another mushroom at the end spray, each one. This. Kind of puts a little bit of layer of stickiness for the seasoning, you want to come over here to your potatoes. Load, these guys up. Same. Thing with your steak I. Love. Goiás seasoning, but heat this is kind of like a base coat right, then. You, want to finish off each one of these skewers here a little, bit of steak seasoning this is a Montreal steak seasoning you, can use whatever steak seasoning you prefer for. The potatoes, Lawry's. Seasoned, salt this one that's paprika in it I love, pepper gone potatoes, it's. Gonna give it that really nice color this, is like a simple parsley, grinder. I'm. Gonna hit each one of these again with a little more spray and now they're ready to go on the grill the first thing you want to put on the grill is the potatoes they're gonna take the longest so you want to come over here put. Them on the grill everything goes on the grill at a 45, degree angle. The. Next item that's going to take the longest is the steak now this depends on how you want it cooked do you want it medium-rare do you want it well done that, all depends on you but put the steak on next. 45-degree. Angle. And. The last one you want to put on is the chicken skewers these, you want to make sure they hit 165. Degrees so that they're cooked all the way through in the middle put them on the left side here. You. Want to get the skewers off the grill put them onto a nice tray like this and then, pour some teriyaki sauce on top just. Like that. And. To get this recipe head to our website case at comm slash Texas eats it's, more of a method and directions than it is a recipe but, it's getting everything all together so that everything comes off the grill at once is very important, we'll, come over here and give it a try check this out. Bell. Pepper nice. Little char on the outside. Mm-hmm, that. Teriyaki sauce is where it's a. Big. Old piece of steak. Absolutely. Delicious but I love about this is, that you're getting your side you're getting your entree all. At the same time the potato has a nice crust. On the outside and.

On current knowings. We think it's about a hundred years per cubic inch at the current growth rate but it could be much more could be much less all depending on how much rainfall there was that means this thing's been here for quite a while, this.

Is crazy, holiday, tree is wild this is happening right below our feet so everybody was up there before it was even discovered not knowing that this was even here what, kind of significance, does this have for the Native Americans, or any of the cultures previous to the people who found it the sinkhole where the caverns entrance is is listed in the National Register of Historic Places because, of all the archaeology, of prehistory there so we know the Native Americans occupied that site as far back as 10,000, years before present it's about as early as any of them were ever in in Central, Texas and. So we found a number of artifacts, down. In the entrance of the cave but there's really no evidence that they ever ventured deeper into the cave beyond in the very entrance right there now there are some critters and things like that had been found deeper, into the cave there's evidence of black bear being. Found deeper into the cave bobcats, and some other critters that made their way down probably, got lost in the cave and in an expired, found, their bones later and, no dinosaurs, no dinosaurs. This.
