Solid BBQ close to Fort Sam. During these crazy times I try to support local restaurants even if the dining is not open. This is one of the better BBQ experiences in San Antonio. I decided to try several meats and some sides. The smoked...turkey was incredible with a lot of moisture and good smoke. The smoked chicken was good, but not great. Good smoke, but the breast was dry. Pulled pork really disappointed. It wasn't pulled but a bunch of chunks with a lot of fat included. No bark to speak of. Tender and smokey, but they need to go to Memphis to refine their technique. Mac and cheese was good, but nothing spectacular. Collard greens had great taste but way too much salt. If I come back it will be for the turkey.More

Excellent brisket, ribs and pulled pork! The three meat platter prices at $16 is a great deal! We had the collards and green beans which were equally delicious! Thank you Daniel for a great meal!

Great food period!!! We started with the pork cracklings (salty & crispy) and capped it off with the beignets. The brisket (good smoke ring), chopped sandwich (chopped to order not left overs), catfish (flaky and flavorful), red beans and rice (true Cajun) were absolutely phenomenal!...The pork ribs looked great and so did the pulled pork. Many great options to chose from so come hungry. The owners are two chefs that bring their training and roots to their food. The restaurant was clean, inside & outside seating available and attentive staff. We will definitely be back!More

Enjoyed our meal and can't wait to go back again! The meat was well seasoned and cook. The sides were scrumptious! The restaurant is an order first then sit down and eat. They bring the food to you. Indoor and outdoor seating. Blues music playing...great...vibe and great food!More

I previously reviewed 225 Urban Smoke, but wanted to say how wonderful the chopped beef was that I had them pack for me to take home to Florida. We opened a pack last night and it was just as good as in the restaurant. Of...course. I didn't have their great sides. B jug t the chopped beef. Well, I"m still licking my lips.More

If you’re looking for authentic Texas bbq this is the place. They have everything from smoked brisket, chicken, turkey to delicious sandwiches. The prices are great and the portions are big. I had the smoked chicken with 2 sides, Mac and cheese, potato salad. And...for dessert we had fresh beignets. This is a great family run restaurant. Stop by and and try everything, you won’t regret it.More

First, I am so thrilled to write 225 Urban Smokes first Trip Advisor review. Back in San Antonio after an 8 year absence, we stumbled upon Urban Smokes when we went for lunch earlier in the week in another restaurant in the same shopping plaza....I saw lots of men going in and somehow got the incorrect idea that it was a shop for all things smoking. Boy, was I out in left field. Upon further research, I found that yes, smoke is involved, but that 225 Urban Smokes was a very newly opened BBQ restaurant with a cajun twist. So today, my friend and I decided to try it for a late Saturday lunch. The restaurant was more than half full, but there was no line to order. The menu is prominately displayed at the front and there printed copies as well. You walk by the carving board and the steam table on the way to the order and pay stations. Once you order and pay, you get your drinks, cutlery, etc and grab a table. Servers bring your food to your table. Which brings us to the most important part - the terrific food! I ordered the 2 meat combo with brisket and pulled pork with green beans and mac n cheese. My friend ordered the brisket with red beans and potato salad. Both meats were tender, juicy and tasty with just the right amount of melty charred fat goodness. Yum! My mac n cheese was well above the norm, but the green beans were outstanding with lots of bacon and onions. They were the bomb. My friend loved her potato salad, which was a traditional cold salad not the hot as advertised on the menu. She said the red beans were good. The plates came with some lightly pickled onion slices and a slice of white bread. Ivreally liked the onions. We shared an order of the beignets and the came hot and covered with powdered sugar. I liked them and would have liked some cinnamon with the sugar. The portions are large and I saw a lot of people taking food home. We asked for a taste of the chopped beef and it was so good that ordered one to go for my husbabd. Their carryout business also seems to be thriving. The menu has plenty of choices. Friendly and conscientious service. Indoor and outdoor seating. Will be back for sure.More
