Best BBQ in San Antonio

Post by snoopdoug1 » Mon Jul 30, 2018 7:08 pm

I'm going to San Antonio in a couple weeks, and driving down to about 30 miles outside of Corpus Christi. I love BBQ. Suggestions on which one I should try? Only there for a short time.

Also - if there are any non BBQ suggestions I'm up for those too!

Do you want to brag to your friends about eating in a BBQ place that has been in Texas Monthly or another top 10 list?

https://www.texasmonthly.com/bbq-home/

Or do you want to experience the gluttony of patrons?

Or both?

I don't think it matters which BBQ you eat at when it comes to the BBQ itself. :) The reason is that the non-best ones go out of business very quickly.

But give us the names/locations of 3 BBQ places that you have loved and we might be able to tilt a recommendation or two towards your preference.

Rudy's Country Store is my favorite. There are a few, but I'm partial to the one near SeaWorld. Recommend the moist brisket and creamed corn

I was really impressed with http://twobrosbbqmarket.com
Peaches in the beans and very juicy brisket.

Pretty close to the airport as well.

Drive down about 60 miles from San Antonio to Lockhart, TX. It’s the capital of BBQ in Texas. Take your pick: Smittys, Blacks, Kreuz Market.

Thanks - I'll look at the list. I saw another suggestion for Rudy's - and I love that place. Been to the one in Colorado Springs before - the turkey & hot links are my favorite. The green chile stew is great too!

EDIT: To answer your 3 BBQ places I love:
Sugarfire Smokehouse, St. Louis, MO
Rudy's BBQ, Colorado Springs, CO
Jim 'N Nick's Bar-B-Q, Charleston, SC

Doh - that's 60 miles the wrong way. Maybe when I get more time I'll give it a shot.

Awesome - depending on other suggestions that may be the winner. I just looked, really close to the airport, and they serve grape kool aid. This place has to be good haha.

Rudy's is good for "fast food" bbq, but it's a loooongp way behind the ones in Lockhart mentioned above.

Rudy's is a BBQ chain with many locations. I like them, too, with two locations near me.

I checked my other favorite places and they have no San Antonio locations.

I agree with this. Rudys is to BBQ what McDonalds is to a hamburger. I see people like them, but I guess I'm not one of them. I'm afraid I don't know of a better choice in San Antonio. Lockhart would be worth the drive, though.

I would recommend a place called Texas Pride BBQ. The brisket and pork ribs are delicious and I would also recommend the german potato salad and cheesy potatoes. If you happen to go between Tuesday-Thursday, there is a Groupon offer to Texas Pride! Enjoy your stay in SA.

The Granary and 2M are both amazing. Texas Monthly also has Smolik's on their list, but I can't vouch for that one. It's in Mathis right off I-37 on the way to Corpus.

Lockhart has kind of been hit or miss for me recently, enough that I skipped it my last trip down to Austin. Austin is just doing it better, even if you leave out Franklin and the 4 hour line. Stiles Switch. La Barbecue, and Terry Black's are all world-class.

Please don't insult Rudy's by calling it the McDonald's of barbecue. Dickey's is the McDonald's of barbecue. Rudy's is at least the Whataburger/In-N-Out/Five Guys (whatever your preference) of barbecue. It's still fast food, but at least it's good fast food.

I think that's fair. I would agree I low rated Rudys using Micky D's as the comparison and the ones you listed above are better choices.

I have family in SA and have been visiting the City for 30+ years. I still very much like Rudy’s. Tried many others but always go back there - it has been very consistent over the years and is also very consistent across its locations. Certainly not “high end” but very good, in my opinion. I always pick up a large take-out order before I leave town...

When you get to San Antonio, keep driving west until you get to Junction. Exit I-10 at Main Street, go towards town (heading south, as I recall), cross over the river, and eat at Lum's.

Their smoked turkey is excellent.

If Lum's in on your way, go there. Nothing in San Antonio proper is exceptional. But you can easily find something good. Even Rudy's can be enjoyed. What you want is barbecue. Any other spelling or abbreviation is a signal to avoid. Google "Texas Barbecue Trail" if you just want to do some research on some of the finest spots. Real plates and eating utensils are signs of compromise. Some really good food can be obtained from a tar papered shack or trailer along the road. Enjoy!

Try Black Board BBQ in Sisterdale. Wagyu Brisket alone is worth it, but add the wild boar sausage and your treat is complete.

Note: Only open Thurs-Sat noon-8.

I agree that Rudy's is excellent. Sure there is better, but they are not even 10% better (not even the famed Franklin's barbecue is 10% better than Rudy's - and is certainly not "worth" the 4 hour line). Try their desserts as well, very good, and PLEASE don't use utensils. There is one in Boerne (NW San Antonio) if that's where you are.

I second the Lockhart recommendation. In town the Rudy's in Leon Springs (Boerne direction) seems to be a better Texas experience to me. The moist brisket, baby back ribs, cream corn, beans, and sausage are all very tasty. Don't forget pickles and raw onions. Two Brothers was kind of sweet and too peppery the last time I was there. One of my favorites used to be Old Smokehouse in the medical center, but it has been years since I've been there.

I'm going to slightly amend my earlier answer.

Lum's is by far better than anything that Rudy's offers, and is much better than anything you'll find in San Antonio when it comes to barbecue, but if you really want to eat BBQ in San Antonio, you could always go to a HEB grocery store that has a True Texas BBQ eatery in it and eat there. Their chicken dish isn't all that bad, the sausage is usually decent, brisket can be hit or miss depending on how fatty it is, and the pulled pork is probably best left on the pig, but it is BBQ in Texas served in a very San Antonio (and to some extent, Texas) establishment.

Google indicates that there are at least two such HEB True Texas BBQ locations in San Antonio.

To the OP...........if you haven't got the drift by now, in Texas, next to arguing religion and politics, the best barbecue, Mexican food, and catfish places are highly controversial topics. There ain't no two barbecue connoisseurs that are going to give you the same answer. Fistfights have broke out among the highly opinionated. Just come to Texas and try all of the places you can, and then you too can become an expert.

Think I read this thoroughly and did not see a recommendation for the The Salt Lick. One of my favorites and I try them every where we go.

Blacks was pretty good too but there were a lot of flies in there for my taste. Maybe it was the season or someone left the door open too long?

Is there a Salt Lick in the San Antonio area? Everybody has their opinion, mine: Salt Lick is the most overrated BBQ and possibly most overrated restaurant overall that I have ever been to. I ate a lot of BBQ during my 5yrs in Texas, my half a dozen or so experiences at Salt Lick were all extremely underwhelming. Despite it's fame and frequent mention on the food channel, it can't hold a candle to most of the other places mentioned in this thread (almost all of which I tried at one time or another). I have favorites in Houston, Dallas, and Austin areas, but I don't recall any particular place in San Antonio really standing out.

Salt Lick is the barbecue version of "sell the sizzle, not the steak". That big open grill over coals sure looks neat, but it's just reheating meat that was previously cooked on a gas-fired smoker in the back.

I think Bill Miller BBQ (a chain all over the place in SA and TX) would be like McD's also.

I've been to Lockhart a few times and it's worth the trip, IMO. Don't forget to stop at Buc-ee's on the way there and get some Beaver Nuggets!

I have been to every BBQ place in Luling and Lockhart as well as many of the recommended places in the state of Texas. I have had good meals and bad meals depending on the time of day that you hit those locations.

I have eaten at Rudy's San Antonio and Phoenix locations and found the BBQ to be very good, very consistent and more customer friendly than most other BBQ places.

Thank you to everyone who responded, will likely be going back to that area a fair amount over the next few years. This time, we stopped at 2M Smokehouse since it was right on the way. The exterior was interesting, but the food was great! THe meat was much better than the sides. I had the 2M sandwich, and the chopped brisket was really really good. Sauce was unique, almost tasted like it had some oil in it or something... definitely not a type of sauce I was used to, but very good. Will try some other place next time!

Note: At 2PM, they were out of Turkey & Sausage.

Also ate at Chuy's on the way back, we were all happy with that as well!

Had another opportunity yesterday and stopped at Auggie's Barbed Wire Smokehouse on the suggestion here. Had brisket, jalapeno sausage, chopped brisket beans, and Mac n cheese.

I have a mixed review on the place. Brisket was excellent, sausage was so-so. Chopped brisket beans were also subpar, while the mac n cheese was very good. Probably wouldnt stop at this one again, on to try more on the list!

I realize this post is a few weeks old now, but thought I would throw in my two cents. I don't even bother getting BBQ in SA. If I can't get from Austin (La BBQ, Mickelwaite, etc) or Lockhart I'll just go without.

A note on Salt Lick - it does have good ambience but the food is super disappointing and you'll never get strong smoke flavor from an open pit like they have.

I haven't tried the newest BBQ places in SA yet so maybe there's hope 👍

Drive down about 60 miles from San Antonio to Lockhart, TX. It’s the capital of BBQ in Texas. Take your pick: Smittys, Blacks, Kreuz Market.
Austin has far surpassed Lockhart. Drive 60 miles north, not east.
