This edition of Excited about Eating takes us to the great state of Texas and to The County Line in San Antonio. Located on the beautiful River Walk in downtown, this BBQ joint serves up all of your Texas BBQ favorites. With a huge outdoor seating area on the water and an old charm, eccentric interior, this place has something for everyone.
A check-in on Yelp offered a free appetizer, the cook’s surprise. Tonight’s “surprise” was sausage. Yay! At first we thought the BBQ sauce had the kick, but the links themselves were spicy. Not a forehead slicker, but a nice burn all the way down.
For my dinner, I chose the Two Beef Rib Platter with corn on the cob and fries. The ribs were huge and full of meat, cooked tender but not over cooked or fall off the bone. The fries were crispy and the corn was a bit soft.
Dora here. The Half Rack of Baby Back Ribs packed a sweet tang, not real meaty but there were plenty of them. Not an ounce of fat, which made me happy. (No worries, honey, yours are still better. 🙂 ) The smashed potatoes were a bit heavy handed on the garlic, and the slaw was definitely a different take with chunks of carrots.
Thankfully, our dinner guest put up with all our plate picking and swapping and camera clicking with a good-natured smile.
Service was quick and friendly, and this is restaurant is a guaranteed stop every time we visit the River Walk.
