We stopped in for lunch and got a brisket sandwich and a sausage sandwich, and an order of creamed corn It was nice. It was around 2:30 in the afternoon, on Saturday, so we were able to order and get served right away. We both loved the brisket and the sausage sandwiches. The meat was moist and the sausage was...

We have been slowly working our way across the southwest in search of the best BBQ, trying to keep away from the "big names". Having read about the Smokehouse in an info brochure dated 2008, we thought we'd give this place a try. As we pulled into the parking lot, we noticed it was full of police vehicles... we're we...

Chopped beef brisket is a home run. Super tender, great fat/meat proportion, I could go on and on. There BBQ sauce goes well with everything - just the right amount of tang/sweetness. Pork ribs are really good too, but a bit less meaty than usual. There sausage is really awesome as well. I'd go back to this place in a... More

The cooks were super nice and gave fabulous greetings as we came in. It's very basic BBQ and pretty darn good. The brisket was definitely the best! Although I also enjoyed the ribs and chicken. The meals, with 2 sides, were about $12-$14 and worth that price.

I have always said Luling City Market was the gold standard of Texas BBQ. However, the Smokehouse may have replaced it. The BBQ brisket was excellent with just the right amount of seasoning. like many BBQ spots in Texas the restaurant is not fancy. Did not try any of the sides as I go for the meat only.

We went to San Antonio for a fun "eating" weekend. Alternated between BBQ & Mexican food. The receptionist at our hotel recommended this place. We wanted "good" not fancy. It was about a 10 minute drive from our hotel on the Riverwalk near the museums but would have been worth an hour drive! The place is somewhat of a "hole... More

My friends and I visited San Antonio from LA for the weekend and wanted BBChew so we found some of the best reviews were for The Smoke House and being close, we went. Oh my goodness, this place was heavenly!! There was a line to the door, several cash registers, a full size menu, smiles coming from every staff member,... More
