It smells so good from the moment you step through the door. The food does not disappoint either. The brisket is classic Texas style. Loved the chicken too. Great sides that we loved are the sweet potatoes, beans, corn and slaw.

This was our first visit. The guy taking orders couldn't answer any questions about any of the menu items. The burgers were burned beyond recognition, and they forgot the chili and cheese on the chili cheese dog. We definitely won't be going back

Great BBQ. We had ribs and chopped brisket. Both were delicious. The sides were also great: green beans, coleslaw and potato salad. Staff was friendly. My husband had a giant chili dog ( the Aug Dog) and loved it. Would recommend . Great little place.

Stopped in for lunch and thoroughly enjoyed our meal. I had the pulled pork sandwich and my wife had the 3-rib platter with corn and coleslaw. Both were very good.

My wife and I had the pork ribs, the brisket and the pulled pork. All good. The Mac and Cheese was wonderful and the potato salad was good. The place is small but the price was right and I will eat there again.

This is a very distinctive restaurant located on the grounds of the San Antonio Zoo. It serves very good BBQ! You enter by a counter where they hand you a Styrofoam plate. You tell the clerk what you want and he puts all 3 ingredients...More

We passed a big pink pig. I told my husband we have not been to a good BBQ place since we moved here. I can say this little hole in the ground is AMAZING. TENDER, smoky and they give you Texas portions. I will come...More

Authentic BBQ. Small place around 6 tables which were full and stayed full during my visit. Long conversation with the smoke master and his recommendations were on the money. I didn't plan on eating so much, and I had to back away from the table....More
