Dining Guide

King’s Hwy Brew & Q

If you’re bored with barbecue, this is the place to find something new. And it also might be the joint that we look back on as the birthplace of San Antonio-style of barbecue. Of course tacos are represented. The pork belly ones are smoky with a nice chew. The black pepper in the salsa verde adds a bit of Texas barbecue flavor to the classic Mexican condiment and pairs well with the tacos. The barbecue torta makes you wonder why we haven’t been adding Texas barbecue as a filling option to the Mexican sandwich after all these years. The brisket torta comes with sliced brisket, onions, tomatoes, lettuce, avocado, salsa, and sour cream. All the extra fat on the sandwich means that even lean brisket tastes decadent. They’ve also got a brunch menu with items like pulled pork, polenta, brisket hash and an excellent hot brown, made with smoked turkey and queso.

    Good story about an alternative BBQ stop. Been craving BBQ, and Mexican food lately, so this seems like a good choice! Thanks!!!

    This place is awesome! That Kentucky hot brown is one the best things I’ve ever put in my mouth! This guy knows what he’s doing. Everyone should eat there!
