Look out Buz. There’s a new BBQ man in town. Alamo BBQ is great BBQ at a great price. A pulled pork BBQ sandwich with two sides and a drink for under eight dollars. I for one well be putting on some pounds this summer.

Sweet tea will be a nice edition, but the real question is — do they have hush puppies?

What an awesome addition to the neighborhood. I stopped by after the C.A.R. meeting to get a bite to eat and saw many of my neighbors enjoying their BBQ outside on the patio furniture. Our city councilperson, Betty Squire, also showed up to lend support to this new neighborhood business.

The BBQ was amazing and Chris promised that his brisket (forthcoming) will be even better. I also had the Texas caviar and mac ‘n cheese. Ridiculously goood.

Hi, my name is Paul Hubbard. I am the executive chef of the Alamo BBQ. Chris Davis and I want to thank everyone that made the opening of the Alamo possible. The comments on this site mean the world to us. Please keep sending us praises, constructive critism, and great ideas. We want to be Churchill’s restaurant. The Alamo will eventually showcase new specials everyday. We want to do breakfast burritos for Sunday brunch, fresh fish tacos, crawfish boils, you tell us what you want and we will we cook it. Thanks Again. P.S. Tim better like jalepenos and fresh… Read more »

Prey tell Bill & Matt, being a transplant from Northern VA what is Texas caviar? My lack of BBQ education is showing.

Hi Paul & Chris… sounds like you deserved the praise all by yourselves 🙂

I mentioned that you opened to a couple of people yesterday. They said they already knew. They drove by and a line was forming. Some got in line and others will be back in a day or so. Count me in as one of the many that will soon pay a visit. The BBQ here is SO much better than up north. I’m looking forward to trying yours.

Welcome to the neighborhood!

Congratulations to the new venture as any new eating establishment on the Hill is most welcome. If you want to endear yourself to the locals, however, please note the name of the neighborhood is “Church Hill,” not “Churchill.”

Texas Caviar is a mix of black beans, corn, peppers, onions and Alamo’s special sauce. Quite tasty.

“Union Hill” – just across the border.

Josh and I stopped by after the CAR meeting, too, and the pulled pork sandwich with coleslaw is, indeed, awesome. We will definitely be checking out the brisket and ribs in the future. Chris and Paul, thanks so much for all your hard work to bring the Alamo to Union Hill–we’re really excited to have you here!

Twinkle Tow, Thank you for asking! The result of the Union Hill Old and Historic Meeting was a unanimous vote in favor of designation. The Commission noted that the district met at least 7 of the factors to be considered in designating a neighborhood and emphasized the importance of preserving one of the oldest working class neighborhoods in the country. That is a history worth sharing, as well.

My sons live in Church Hill & I’ve been hearing about this restaurant opening and was so glad to hear that it is finally a reality. All of us will definitely be patrons and can hardly wait to taste the delicious BBQ. Good luck to the owners and hope they are in Church Hill for a long, long time.

Deanna,
Don’t let them fool you about Texas Caviar. It’s the eggs of Rio Grande river catfish, marinated in McIlhenny’s hot sauce for 14 days in oak barrels. These people should not take advantage of a foreigner.

Personally, I like the first definition (#20) better! So – what IS the real definition of Texas Caviar?

Bill Conkle
Guest

If a crime is committed it’s Union Hill. If a wonderful barbecue joint opens or a beautiful tricycle garden emerges from a vacant lot? Call it Church Hill.

The Texas Caviar was very nice, once you got through fighting the big mamma catfish for her eggs.

deanna

David… Hmmmm, how intriguing. Texas sushi with a wine county aging flare. That takes fusion cookin’ to a whole new level. WOW! Must be quite the delicacy…. ya-ummm. Black beans, corn, peppers, onions in sauce did sound a bit gross.

Thanks for looking out for me 🙂

#34 – you must try it again…. Chris Davis and Paul Hubbard’s Alamo BBQ is in a word – yum, yum!! Great Food, Great Prices, Great Neighborhood Addition!!!

Remember (the) Alamo (BBQ)!

ps the Jalapeno Mac & Cheese is uniquely awesome!! Perfect for us tender mouths, its not at all spicy and very full of rich flavor.

deanna

OK, Paul & Chris

#1 – no plastic or tape in the food 🙂

Ian, did you bring the stuff to their attention when you found it, or tell them about the food if it wasn’t to your liking?

I back this place! Smoked beef brisket was awesome but this big boy would have loved a little more meat on those buns. Congrats!

I had dinner at Alamo last night and am going back tonite! I had the beef brisket (unbelievable!), mac & cheese, and Texas caviar and left there a satisfied customer. They also had Portabello mushrooms on a bun as a vegetarian option.

Ok am i the only on who thinks that “Ian’s” comments seem a little strange. I have eaten there 3 times since they opened and everything was very very good. we all know that these things can and will happen in the heat of service. So many problems in one order and only one order seems strange.
BTW…..did u put any BBQ sauce on your sandwich Ian?

The family and I tried it out today. Everything was good. Still working out the opening week jitters but the foundation is there and most importantly the BBQ is good. I had the brisket and the wife had the pork both good smoky flavor. Next time I’ll try the ribs. We had a nice conversation with the operator and we’ll return.

Alamo is great! The details really set them apart. I especially like that they are serious about pleasing their vegetarian customers. The outdoor seating area has a lot of potential, hopefully it will develop over time. Alamo BBQ is a very welcome addition to Union Hill.

How many of the options are vegan? Sounds like the caviar might be. Anything else?

How much would a dinner run each person, roughly?

Ate there the other night. Liked the food a lot, but I wish they would do something about the excessive use of styrofoam packaging – there’s got to be a better way.
