Style Weekly drops their $.02 on Alamo BBQ:
The Alamo switches things up a bit by Southern standards. Meats are the usual: chicken, pulled pork and beef brisket, served in consistently huge portions for the money. Flavors speak of mesquite smoke, a spice rub and a hint of vinegar. Lunch is around $7; a full meal for $10 includes sandwich, side, drink and dessert. The side sauce is sweet and spicy, no tomato anywhere to be seen and a pleasantly intriguing finish â€” what is that? Pomegranate? Blood orange? Iâ€™ll have to keep going back until I figure it out.
