It was listed as a 4-1/2 from previous guests. I presume either because they have immature palettes or they have never had bbq before. The food was warm, and the portions were fair. Potatoes were soggy because of the excessive water draining off the green...More

I really like this place. They have great Brisket (you can choose lean or regular), creamed corn, and several types of sausage. It is counter service restaurant which is reasonably priced.

I try to find every stand-out BBQ joint around the country. This one is on my list (I even bought a t-shirt). The brisket is fabulous. I always order and eat my meat without sauce as good stuff will stand on its own.

Good selection of smoked meats and sides. You can build your own combination simply by added a 2nd or 3rd meat choice to your plate.

And a pretty good price. Order the moist! My Cali family likes to have a bbq meal once during their visit, and we tried this place cause our usual one was closed on Sunday. Everyone raved.

This place is a somewhat hidden gem. It's easily in my top 3 favorites in San Antonio. The meat is perfectly cooked, and they offer a few sauces that have awesome flavor, though you really don't even need them.

If you go to The Big Bib, they will give you a sample of their coleslaw and you can decide for yourself if it is the flavor you want/like.
