My god, why would they build the Alamo across from a Ripleys.

One of my favorite stories was CHIEF Jr. at about 4 years old asking me how they were able to have a battle in the middle of downtown SA. Had him believing that Santa Anna ate lunch at Hooter's on the Riverwalk everyday.

Toro, over on Commerce is a great Spanish Tapas place. Not sure if they will have flamenco music tonight, but you would be in for a treat if they do. Full of hot ass women as well.

Don't eat at the Hemisfair Needle, but go to the bar, if it is open, and enjoy the view.

The last time we went to SA we had dinner here after drinking on the river walk for a few hours. Easy to walk to and we had a great time. This place fucks.

For the tea right?

The best thing in the menu is chicken strips. Let that sink in.  Even the tea is shit.  It's watery, too sweet, and nothing more than the same liptons you can get at and grocery store.  But it does come in a giant gallon tub.  Or does it anymore, hell if I know.

Looking forward to getting down there soon.  Maybe Ill take the kids down this wknd and chow down.   Michael Huff bought a bunch of meals for people there this past wknd.

Saw via the Twatters that HuffDaddy also paid for 400 wing meals up in Dallas.  Not via Pluckers, but whatevs - probably better to support a smaller operation if it was.

Pinkerton’s BBq was pretty damn good yesterday. Downtown by Frost Bank building. He is big UT fan. Beautiful place.

my only issue is that 2M exists there and 100/100 times I am taking 2M over Pinkertons if I am going into town for Q. Now if you already live in SA and are closer to downtown, then sure, that changes things a little...either way, glad for more (actually) good Q in SA.

My meals at 2M have always been great and I think I prefer them to Pinkerton’s. Plus that sausage and nopalitos.

But it’s always nice to have choices.

agreed, especially when folks in SA loved the Granary (had nothing that was awesome there any of the times I went) - more good BBQ = better.

You are correct.  My only issue with 2M is the fact that they are only To Go right now (i think) and since they are not close to my house at all, I am not always trying to slam a slab of ribs in my truck.

Was in SA for work and went to Pinkertons today. Above average but not great or even good.  I wanted to love it because he seems like he loves BBQ and the Horns. Sausage was average, cold slaw had no flavor. Brisket was good not great but it was a $40 meal with a Lawnmower. 
 

The location is dope and I’m not sure if the green space is theirs or the City of SA. They could have some cool music and the bar set up is nice. More Lamberts than a normal BBQ joint but still a walk through order process but bar is separate.

Didn't Texas monthly name their corned beef the best in the state at one point?   Not defending SA BBQ or lack there of but shouldn't they get some credit when due?

San Antonio has awesome food even if truly great BBQ isn’t its top draw.

Macho tostada burger at Chris Madrid’s kills. Absolutely kills. 

Josephine Street Steakhouse is the shit. Very reminiscent of the  in Austin.  It’s not “fine dining” but it’s a great piece of steak drowning in their Hofbrau style sauce that’s like liquid crack. The onion rings are fantastic. The setting is perfect. 

Schilo’s Deli with house rootbeer, house sinus clearing mustard, and hot German potato salad.

And not even scraping the surface of the fantastic Tex-Mex and Mexican.

I mean 2M is absolutely a top 10 joint in Texas

+rep for Schilo's  We used to eat there before going to Spurs games at Hemisfair.  Schilo's is still going strong, too, I hope.  Their split pea soup is pretty great.

Schilo's and Zito's are by far my favorite sammich joints in SA.

By far.

Glad it Schilo's got brought up.  Reminds me I need to go back.  Been at least 20yrs.

Love for the Granary had less to do with quality and more to do with its hip location at the Pearl. You could charge $30 for a scrambled eggs at that place and white girls would still flock there for brunch.

I thought granary sucked. Cool building, very average cue and absurdly overpriced. I did think the corned beef was pretty good but if they were going to focus on that they should have opened a deli not a BBQ place. If you can't make good brisket gtfo. 

I haven't been to Pinkerton in SA yet but I had people who I trust on such matters tell me that their brisket was the best they've ever had outside of Franklin. Better than 2m, Black's, Kreutz, Luling cm, etc. Going to need to check it out.

Yes, Pinkerton’s, when they are “on” are better than those places. But better than 2M...maybe, maybe not. Definitely not better than Tejas, Truth, or Valentina’s.
