She really said that. Texas Barbecue places are a dime a dozen in Texas, and there is practically a "Bill Miller's" on every corner in San Antonio. But this place was very different. Please see the pictures to help understand. You first walk into a room where they actually grill the meat. It is sold by the pound, and the prices are on the wall or readerboard. you look it over, point out what you want and the cook plops it on your tray in a sort of messy mass. Then you go through a door into the resturaunt, holding your meat. A new guy takes that tray, gives you a clean tray, he weighs the meat and wraps it like a butcher at a meat market. You then pick out some sides. Different sorts of sides--like Jalapeno Macaroni and Cheese with Bacon in it.
What else is different? Well, all the beans you can eat are free, giant cook pots are at two locations. All the bread you want is free - stacks of that. Hot pepers, gratis, onions, gratis, help yourself. Picnic tables. Live music sometimes. Beer available. It is very good meat, folks.
