“Really good BBQ”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2013

We just happened to stop in because we were in the area and had a wonderful lunch! I ordered the ribs and they were meaty and had the perfect smoky taste. I chose potato salad and coleslaw as sides and both were also good. My friends had brisket and chicken and were very happy with their choices too. I would definitely eat there again if I am in the area. It's a very casual and rustic atmosphere where you order and pay at the window and then they call your number. The dining room was clean but also rustic.

“Wow”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2013

Located just a few minutes away from Downtown San Antonio The Smokehouse is a great choice for Bbq. We were impressed with the flavor. My fiance had the brisket and sausage plate. She really enjoyed the flavor of both items. I had the brisket and chicken which was also good. Only thing this place is missing is cream corn but all in all it was very good. A hidden gem if you ask me.

One of my favorite BBQ places. Definitely the best in the area. I'll stop back the next time I am in the area.

The Lamb was great but there was nothing special about the ribs and brisket.
