Sorry for just now getting back to this topic. I am basically going to echo what those who have already eaten have said. Jason Dady has another winner on his hands. I've been twice since I started this topic. I've had the brisket, pork butt, sausage, and chicken thighs. All were cooked to perfection. The tangy red cabbage slaw is so different and so much better than your standard cole slaw. Plus, it's complimentary with brisket, pork, or chopped beef. To me, the true winner here are the beans. As YGBSM stated, at most places the beans are an afterthought. Not at Two Bros., though. I was a bit taken aback when I saw the peaches in there, but they don't make the beans overly sweet at all. In fact, the beans pack a wonderful spicy kick.
Needless to say I will be going back often, and I look forward to trying the rest of the menu.
Just drove down West Ave. and noticed that this new restaurant had opened behind El Bosque. Based on what limited info I could find online, it's apparently a new restaurant from Jason Dady. Just wondering if anyone has tried it out yet. If so, how was it? I think I'll be giving it a go tomorrow as there is an absence of quality bbq in SATX. I'll give a review tomorrow, but hope to hear from someone else who has tried it out.
Congrats on getting me to join, as this topic speaks to my heart and stomach. This is my first post, but I have been lurking here for a while.
Anyway, I concur with "BB the Stein"'s two recommendations. Podna's is great for Po' Boys and their jalapeno catfish is great. Ma' Harper does great gumbo and I highly recommend the fried pork chops and jambalaya.
A few other places to check out are Bernard's Creole Kitchen. He's a Katrina refugee who bought a house on Palo Alto off of SW Military and turned it into a restaurant. It's not fancy, but Bernard is generous with his portions. And the food is incredible. He's not open late, so it's more of a lunch place. Also, his menu changes monthly, but he has several standbys that are always on the menu. The drunken chiken is to die for.
Bourbon St. Seafood Kitchen, while a little pricier than the above mentioned locales, is pretty good. Definitely more of a sit down restaurant, but the etoufee is good and the salad dressings impress. Plus, it has a cool looking bar, although I've only been there at lunch.
I would choose any of the above over Acadiana. I've been to Acadiana once, but have been to the others several times.
Cheers and good luck.
