Driving by it, you wouldn’t know that B&D Ice House Southtown, San Antonio was in the business of serving up some of the most delicious barbeque you’ll ever put in your mouth. That’s subjective, I know, but not one person in our party of 6 was disappointed.
Started in 1961 and “reimagined” in 2014, there’s certainly nothing pretentious about this place. No fancy sign and no fancy building, just order at the window and a grab a picnic table. When they holler your name, come and get it!
B&D serves all the go-to barbeque for the purists (and fixins), which stands above the rest all on it’s own. But this establishment kicks it up a notch by combining flavors that had everyone making noises your not supposed to make in public.
How about some green chile mac-n-cheese? Oh yeah, it’s as good as it sounds. I had this alongside some chicken thighs that were smokey and delicious.
I didn’t get a bite, but there was quite a bit of groaning over “The Bruno.” Bun, chopped brisket, sauce, mac-n-cheese, slaw…BAM.
My husband couldn’t shut up about the chopped brisket frito pie either. Need I say more? Just look at it.
Of course, if you’re into brews, they have those too.
I highly recommend traveling down to Southtown (or whichever direction will get you there), and checking it out for yourself. You know I liked it because I received no compensation to write this! Just wanted to give some fanfare to a local business who serves up great food.
