San Antonio BBQ Catering

cookieyumyum Jan 6, 2008 01:15 PM

Hi all!

I know there are many BBQs that do catering in the San Antonio area, but what is the best?

Also, does anyone know of anyone who will actually come out and bbq the meat for you on site? Would love for someone to do this for a party!!!!

Thanks for any suggestions!

    You may want to give Bolner's (http://www.bolnersmeatmarket.com/) a try. They are a proper butcher shop that can Q whatever your heart desires. I'm pretty sure they won't Q on-site, but they've been around since before my parents were born, and they have a very loyal customer base. Family owned and operated since day one.....
    There is also a pretty good Q place at the NE corner of Houston and Clark. Some days there's a guy with a trailer-mounted pit parked in the lot (usually Fridays and Saturdays). You may want to talk to them, as I haven't the slightest clue if they'd Q on site or even cater for that matter. But, the Q they serve is the kind of Q I grew up with...good East side brisket with soul (no pun intended).

      Ooooo Thank you Thank you for the recs! I'll definitely be checking these out!

      Has anyone been to Burton's BBQ in SA? I was reading on their website that they will bring a portable pit to some catering locations.

          It's actually a quick-stop family mart with a bbq joint attached to the side of it...and it may actually be on the corner of Commerce and Walters. I can never figure out which street is which. It's on the NE corner of Walters and Houston/Commerce, just north of St Phillips College. [so i guess that would be houston st]. In any case, it's really an east side bodega with Q on the side...not a proper restaurant, per se.
