First time here and it was worth the short drive from home, about 30 minutes. We had the brisket and sausage plate. Brisket was tender, not fatty and the sausage was nicely spiced and firm and yet tender, not a store bought brand. Sides were cole slaw, pinto beans, green beans and peach cobbler for dessert, all excellent. Employees were... More

Every time I am in the area I always go to Texas Pride BBQ. Love the look of the place. You can feel the history and county the minute you drive up. There are plenty of choices for food. Everything I have had has been very good and tasty. I am partial the the rib and brisket sandwich. They definitely... More

Very disappointed in the food. We got there at 8 pm and it closes at 8:30. Possibly that is the reason we were disappointed and the food was not what we expected. My brisket was cut from the end and it had a thick crust. There was so much burned crust that it took away from the taste of the... More

Great place to eat BBQ, brisket, ribs, etc. all quite good. Typical Texas atmosphere, order food cafeteria style, get drinks and sit at a large wooden table. Beer is available. If you are lucky enough to be there on an afternoon when they have a band, enjoy the covered concrete dance floor. If there is no band on Sunday, head... More

We ate here after running the Rock n Roll 10k. We loved the restaurant had a shuttle service that could take us from & back to our downtown San Antonio hotel. I loved the setup of the place. Cafeteria style display with the cooked meats ready to cut up for serving. It was very hard refraining from wanting to try... More

Took drive to the restaurant I saw on Dinners, Drive In and Dives about 15 miles outside of San Antonio. Great choice and our server / carver Brandon helped us through the way to order the food. We had the brisket, chicken, ribs and sausage plus two sides and coke in the bottle for $22! It was the best dinner... More

We've been coming here for years. It's the best BBQ on the far east side of San Antonio. The ribs are delicious and make sure you ask for your brisket wet as the dry rub they use can dry out the lean brisket or you will have to use alot of sauce which kills the natural taste of the meat.

I had heard wonderful things about this place in the past although my wife and I had never visited it ourselves until recently with my parents. First off, the meat we had was ok, definitely not a leader on a top 10 list but it was the sides that were extremely bland. Hardly any flavor and the gentleman serving them... More

Pulled into the parking lot, appeared to be an old gas station/garage, converted to a class A BBQ joint. I've eaten BBQ, actually smoked meat in many places, some of the best have that "joint" atmosphere or persona, or even a shack, so I had really high hopes initially. These high hopes were definitely fulfilled and exceeded. I had the... More

The Brisket was fantastic. Went there with two co-workers that felt the same. "The Brisket Tour" was launched that day in Adkins TX. The tour traveled to Houston, San Antonio, Ft Worth and Austin. There was no comparison to Texas Pride.
