Nearly a barbecue pit, Mr. and Mrs. G's teaches San Antonio a thing or two about home cooking. It may be the desserts, made every morning by Mrs. G, that account for the reported euphoria that comes after downing a plate of grub that is, honestly, lip-smackingly good. It's high-calorie, straight-up soul food - not a new take on or interpretation of the tasty stuff. Mr. and Mrs. G's is, was, and always will be a letter-perfect rendering of things fried and boiled: The vegetables are soft and watery - but flavored with bits of ham and onion; the meat can be fatty or smothered in gravy (How else could ham hocks and steak - in that order - be served?); and the choice of bread is a flaky biscuit or cornbread muffin. - John Brewer
The concept of the restaurant is everything old school, using what they had and doing as they did before the break of the industrial revolution: approximately 1850. There are no blenders, mixers, choppers, ice cream machines, deep fryers, burr sticks, nor anything else with a motor or a plug. The menu will move absolutely in lockstep with the seasons. Every perishable ingredient we serve here comes from within 150 miles of this place, was raised in the old way, and has been handled in the old way. We know the rancher, and we know the farmer. We buy from them directly to keep the supply chain small and visible.
We buy whole animals, cut and dry-age them ourselves, and preserve them in the old, tried-and-true ways of the Victorian age, and the traditions that came before them. We smoke our own bacon, grind our own sausage, make our own orange marmalade, and can strawberries in the springtime. All fats used here we either rendered ourselves, or have been naturally crushed from a seed. When possible we will favor Texan products in this also, because money spent in your community stays in your community.
Paul Brooks, the proprietor of Snack & Smack Bar-B-Que, formerly Big Mama's Soul Food restaurant, at 820 New Braunfels Ave., cooks barbecue brisket, ribs, sausage, and other local favorites over seasoned mesquite wood six days a week. He rests on Sunday. After he loads up a portable barbecue pit with mesquite wood and lights it, Brooks wraps a rack of marinated pork ribs in aluminum foil and lays it on the grill. He then hitches the pit to a van that bears the Snack & Smack Bar-B-Que sign, and pulls it into the parking lot of the Government Hill restaurant. The smoke attracts loyal customers who come for a barbecue plate with a choice of soul food sides: rice, spinach, beans, mashed potatoes, corn, cabbage, chitterlings, yams, black-eyed peas, homemade macaroni and cheese, and bread, all for $5.50. - Michael Cary
A family-styled restaurant with an enjoyable atmosphere that offers critically acclaimed pit-smoked barbecue and lightly-marinated hand-cut char-grilled steaks.
Choices for barbecue include items common to Texas such as brisket, smoked chicken, turkey and pork spare ribs as well as Carolina-styled pulled pork and cornmeal-breaded Florida-styled Catfish.
Your made-to-order steak selections range from juicy T-bone and Rib eye to NY strip. Steaks are served with a homemade ginger-based pepper sauce.
Texas BBQ & Steakhouse's "Bar-B-Q Patio-styled" bbq was recognized by Texas Monthly as one of the best in the state and the Express-News Paper named their Ribs the Critics choice for 2007.

Time — and possibly Dead Horse’s dabbling in death metal on their 1996 album BOIL(ing) — dealt former lead shouter Allen “Alpo” Price a cruel hand. “I can’t sing so good anymore,” Alpo laughingly laments on the recent Making a Dead Horse Live DVD. Their solution? Recruiting a fifth horseman, Michael Argo, who capably injects a menacing presence into the Houston band while remaining true to their hard-earned legacy. The DVD indisputably proves that the reactivated Horse is no desperate cash-grab attempt. The DVD chronicles a riotous Argo debut at the sold-out H-town reunion show in 2011, with a couple of Austin performances (including their Fun Fun Fun Fest set) further cementing the fact the resurrected Horse is as consistent as it is corrosive. With The Cutthroats and Pillcrusher. (See Dead Horse feature at sacurrent.com).
Hello Studio hosts a screening of two videos written, recorded, and produced by Joe Raymond Vega, formerly of the band Xry. Exploring gender roles and sexuality, Vega's works speak to "those who indulge and are not afraid . . . everyone who has had to deal with racial or ethnic cruelty . . . straight, gay, and lesbian . . . outcasts of American society."
Hard-rocking bands including To Every Enemy, Birth Of My Blasphemy, Fortunes, lovelettertypewriter, Michael Anthony, Mourning Sky, Jeremiah Brevdad, The Paladiom, Buried Under Texas, Dead Like You, Hardside, Better Luck Tomorrow, To Serve Man, Just A Dream, Ammo, Of Grand Design, Collect Your Dead, and Stomping on Iris unite to celebrate the Rabbit's anniversary.
If you’ve ever lamented that you were born too late to see one of America’s founding hardcore punk bands, worry no more. And if you’ve ever worried that you’d never see that band split into two factions and beef at each other like an old married couple, well, you’re in luck there, too. The “official” version of Black Flag, claiming that title by dint of being led by guitarist and SST label boss Greg Ginn, hits the Korova for an all-ages show, just like the gigs your parents used to go to before Ginn qualified for AARP membership. They’ll be running through classics from before the band’s disintegration 25 years ago as well as some new material from their forthcoming album. Lifelong pot-stirrer Ginn may have some choice words for the other version of the band, currently touring as “Flag” with double the original members.
Much like author Mo Chorfi, Cuban artist Adrian Rumbaut found creative inspiration in the relentless commodification of Marilyn Monroe (1926-1962) and Ernesto “Che” Guevara (1928-1967). While Morfi’s novel Marilyn and El Che in the Mirror of Love and Death sends a JFK-obsessed Monroe to meet Guevara on a mission to rectify the Bay of Pigs, Rumbaut’s multimedia forays (including the inter-related projects Contraparte and Diagramas Pictóricos) package the pair as something of a power couple. Fused together in layered portraits and conceptual fashion designs, it’s hard to tell where her Hollywood ends and his revolution begins. “Icons” imports Rumbaut’s intriguing studies in “visual duality” to Bihl Haus Arts.
