Exclusive Lunch Report: M. K. Davis

Posted by: Loren Coleman on August 28th, 2009

You won’t believe what Cryptomundo has discovered about M. K. Davis! Amazing images support our claims.

Okay, you thought I was going to check-in at noon and keep going on about Bigfoot massacres and such things forever, I bet.


Nope, I thought I’d lighten this up and report on a real-life strange coincidence: “M. K. Davis” is an eating joint in San Antonio, Texas, known for its rather “Bigfoot” portions.

Dave Stone, on his Silver Creek blog (Silver Creek is a neighborhood in San Antonio), actually has a recent posting entitled “Lunch Report: M.K. Davis on North Flores and Poplar.”

It’s not about Bigfooter M. K. Davis exploring new hominoid finds from Flores Island of Homo floresiensis (“Flores Man”; nicknamed Hobbit). Not at all.

Dave points out that “M.K. Davis Restaurant and Bar has been around since 1956,” and is well-known for its “1/3 pound cheese burger” and “huge 32 ounce schooner.”

Now as far as conspiracy theories go, I don’t even want to think about how San Antonio was ground-zero for the funding for 1950s’ Yeti research and critical to the beginnings of the first expeditions into the Bluff Creek area in search of Bigfoot. This was all thanks to the sponsorship of Tom Slick and his friends living in San Antonio. Slick even used as one of his early covers to get entry into Nepal, the San Antonio Zoological Society.

What if records indicate someday that the early planning sessions of those Slick expeditions happened at that new restaurant in the 1950s, just right down the street, M. K. Davis?

How bizarre would that be?

    The San Antonio Zoological Society? Now that’s just funny.

    But seriously, upon closer inspection and enhancement of the ‘burger’ photos, one can clearly see blood on the hand of one subject and a basket on the left containing what appears to be a ribcage. Weapons can be seen on the right. And the witness in the background has clearly been decapitated to silence her. One has to wonder just what that sandwich is really made of….squatchburger, anyone?

  2. DWA responds:

    You know, I’m getting tired of this guy.

    He’s seeing way too much in those photos, or in that restaurant. I can’t decide which.

    If we don’t stop him, soon we’ll be hearing that there are three of them, and the third one operates a snack bar in Kathmandu serving “yeti-size” portions, and that here’s a photo of it, or him, or something alleging to be them, on Google Earth. And that the funny-tasting chops are, yes, the result of A Massacre. Then it’ll be time to cue the Bernard Heuvelmans tribute video. Then, sayonara again. Right, until when, you faker you?

    This has to stop. Crypto has suffered from this kind of stuff too long.

    Hey, what kind of beer is that?

  3. JMonkey responds:

    I dont know about the Crypto part, but that burger looked awesome. I’ll see you guys later. I gotta go get some food.

  4. JMonkey responds:

    More than likely it is Shiner Bach beer. It is a Texas local favorite. I grew up near Texas, and I must say I have enjoyed it on several occassions.

  5. Rob008 responds:

    I think if you go into the restaurant and film some guy eating the huge burger and then adjust the image of the guy eating, it’ll show a Bigfoot, with its hair up, walking straight through the woods, with a big bullet hole in its leg. Let the truth be known. MK you’re my idol.

  6. cryptidsrus responds:


    That was funny. Odingirl and the rest also.

    Great burger. Wouldn’t mind chomping down on THAT.
    Great post.

  7. mystery_man responds:

    I don’t know about Bigfoot, but eating this stuff will make you as big around as one. 🙂

    I’m getting fatter just looking at that burger. “Diet coke to go with that sir?” “No, a 32 ounce beer, please.” Buuuuuurrrrrp.

    DWA- Clearly there has been plenty of evidence to support the existence of the Bigfoot working the Kathmandu snack joint. There ARE photos, footprints, and plenty of eyewitnesses. We will never get anywhere if we don’t look at the evidence, and it’s there in spades. Your whole scoftic stance towards Bigfoot’s move towards snackery and the food business is worrying. There’s no reason to suspect that a hominid of this type would not find a liking for flipping burgers. Read sighting and dining reports! Class dismissed. 🙂

  8. korollocke responds:

    Oh fer pete sakes! Any body with at least on active brain cell knows bigfoot don’t eat burgers, bigfoots thinking Arbys!

    Howdy fellow cryptid folks..
    This is my first post.., odd considering I visit this site almost everyday for the last 2 years yet never posted anything, but seeing as how San Antonio, TX was mentioned I happened to live here…down the street from a hooters and bikinies might I add.
    I had heard of a place called MK Davis but I guess it never really clicked, gotta check it out then I’ll report back on the eatery..
    JMonkey FYI shiner is great up north texas, but the premier beer would be budwieser…us mexsons love liquid gold an almost any schooner here in tx will be bud…

  10. Rob008 responds:

    I saw Bigfoot at Hooters one time. He was flirting with the Hooter girls.
    I think I saw MK filming him, till he got kicked out for not ordering food.
