“Wow”
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.

Reviewed February 2, 2013

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.

“Best Ribs in SA”
Reviewed July 27, 2011

The ribs and brisket are wonderful. They have lamb as well if you want to mix it up.Still need to pave the parking lot but that only stops me from going on rainy days which we haven't had for a while. The sausage is the only down side. So I go to Gonzales Market on Rigsby. The same sausage as in Gonzales TX. And that's as good as it gets unless you're driving to Luling or Lockhart.

“don't bother”
Reviewed June 3, 2011

all the meat tastes the same with the same over salted dry rub. Everything--ribs, brisket, chicken was over-cooked, dry and black. Not even the sausage was juicy. The potato salad tasted like they bought it from the local HEB grocery store. The pickled jalapenos are from a large can--fresh peppers are not available. Frankly, go to Bill Miller for a better value and better food without risking a break-into your car in this neighborhood--and I do mean--HOOD
