Get A Taste Of Texas Barbecue In San Diego

Texas-style barbecue is known around the country where pitmasters cook tender, juicy meat bursting with smokey flavor. If you want to enjoy an authentic taste of the Lone Star State, you don’t have to go far. Several restaurants serve delicious Texas barbecue in San Diego. Those near our Mission Valley apartments include:

Coop’s West Texas Barbecue 

Born in Midland, Texas, Bradrick learned the art of barbecuing from his father. Today, he enjoys bringing a taste of his home state barbecue to San Diego. The culinary team at Coop’s West Texas Barbecue takes their time smoking the meat. They also create sauces, tasty sides, and delectable desserts. Menu offerings include brisket, spare ribs, and homemade Texas sausage. Be sure to round out your meal with some baked beans and macaroni and cheese. 

Abbey’s Real Texas BBQ 

At Abbey’s Real Texas BBQ, the meat smokes over mesquite and green oak, with the brisket and pork shoulder cooking between 18 and 24 hours. Owners Matt and Athena Shlemon became restaurant owners after Matt dined at the restaurant many years ago. He enjoyed his lunch so much that before he left, he offered to buy the eatery. For dinner, try the brisket and pork shoulder sandwich. It pairs well with the fries and corn on the cob.

Bowlegged BBQ

Established in 2017, Bowlegged BBQ is where you’ll enjoy recipes passed down for generations. Co-founder Carlos Stance worked in sales and marketing for over 40 years before opening the restaurant. He and his team are obsessed with perfection. They prepare every meal with care using high-quality ingredients, and menu choices include tri tips, brisket, and ribs. The restaurant is open Wednesday through Sunday from 11:00 a.m. until the food is gone.
