Looking for great BBQ in San Antonio
Hi, I'm driving down to SA from Austin to take a client to lunch, and want to give him a great BBQ experience (he is from the Northwest). Great ribs are a plus, and sides as well. The closer to down town is also a plus, but I am willing to drive 30 minutes from downtown.
I know that County Line is on the riverwalk, and that is all good, but was looking for something else.
Two places for you, both easily accessible from downtown and not more than a10 minute drive. The Smokehouse, Roland Ave at Rigsby is right off I10 E. Augie's Barbed Wire Smokehouse, on St. Mary's St, located off US 281 N just near the SA Zoo is another place for good SA BBQ. My only hit against the Zoo-Q is the sauce...not very good. Pit-smoked and locally owned one-shop BBQ that will satisfy. Google 'em for directions.
plain and simple, you're not going to get a great bar-b-q experience in downtown. just not happening.
I think you could probably get to the rudy's on i-35 in selma in 30 minutes. Now, remember, there are some people on this board that simply do not like rudy's. I happen to enjoy it very much.
