Review 2 for Alamo Bowl
Party City !!!
Date:September 13, 2010
As the last post was written I very much agree, You dont hear much of san antonio there for you would'nt think to expect much of their Bowl Game, But let me put it in terms understood by lts say...previous alamo bowl alumni. ESPN intrviewed several collage students and asked them If Their program wasn't going to a champ. bowl where would they prefer, and the over all major. said san antonios Alamo Bowl. I also think San Antonios New Years bash has alot to do with it. All I have to say is Im glad I was one of the first to experience their Bowl first in the ninties and last year, and Ill probably try to head back down to the S.A. Alamo Bowl this winter as well especially for their climate.and this time im taking several of my friends with me. Note:Being that that they have now moved up in the Bowl pecking order they are now choosing 2nd from the PAC-10 as well as the BIG 12. Well, see you there..........

Review 3 for Alamo Bowl
1st Class all the way
Date:December 31, 2012
We ordered our tickets as soon as they went on sale. They arrived in the mail 3 days after ordering them, which completely blew us away. I figured that since there was so much time until the bowl game that we would get them closer to the game. It really made things easier to not have to wait on them. This is not my first experience with Ticket City and I would HIGHLY recommend them to anyone and have. The seats for the Alamo Bowl were even better than advertised on the website and we could see all the action on the field for the entire game. We bought tickets another time and they were delivered to the wrong address. I called and it was a mistake by FedEx, but Ticket City was fully prepared to get us a new set of tickets and not once did they shift the blame and say it wasn't their problem. The response I got was "We will get you to the game at no additional cost if the tickets cannot be found." I became a loyal customer after that and will always use Ticket City. As far as the game went with those tickets, it was the year we lost to Iowa State, so I almost wish the tickets have never been found, lol.
I've been to the Alamobowl twice and both times had a great time. The Alamodome is located in the heart of San Antonio's Riverwalk, which means that there are great restaurants and bars surrounding the stadium. That means there is always lots of fun stuff to do pregame and postgame. For pregame check out Celebration Station just steps from the Dome, there will be plenty of fans, drinks, food and good times. Postgame I recommend trying The Original Mexican Restaurant just a few steps down the Riverwalk.
The game itself always is exciting - some of the best bowl games in past 10 years have been at the Alamobowl. Go see the Alamobowl, its a great bowl game.
