2 In-Demand Boerne BBQ Joints Worth Arriving Early For

Black Board BBQ Meats by S.A.Vortooth

What can be more Texan than a Hill Country Drive and a big plate of smokey Bar-B-Q?  These Boerne BBQ hot spots do not disappoint, but you better be on time if you want to load up on their tasty goodness. When the meat runs out, that’s it for the day and you’ll have to come back tomorrow!

We’ve always had a selection of tasty meats and treats fresh from the pit that are sure to get your tastebuds dancing.  Here’s a checklist if you want to hit them all up. Lately, two of our local favorites have been getting a lot of well-deserved attention and you should all take note.

If you haven’t heard of Compadres Hill Country Cocina yet, allow us to open your eyes to some awesome food in an incredibly patriotic environment! Chef Mark is grilling up a combo of Tex-Mex and Bar- B-Q that is sure to have you coming back for more! Be prepared for a line waiting outside the door before they open at 11 am. Folks know what’s waiting on the other side and that it’s worth the wait. The portions are generous, and the meats and sides are mouthwateringly memorable.  Start making your dining wish list now for items like Raspberry Chipotle Pulled Pork Tacos, Beef Tacos Al Carbon, Smoked Beef or Chicken Fajitas, Mesquite Smoked Chicken and so much more. Chef Mark regularly has to put out his big red “We Are Sold Out” sign before 2:00 pm because it all flies out the door so quickly! Local foodie Facebook group, “Hill Country Eats! Reviews and Recommendations!” is filled with post after post of rave reviews about Compadres! Feel free to add yours to the mix after you dine on their patio or in their festive dining room. Veteran supporting celebrities like George Strait and Goldberg have also been known to come by and order up from Chef Mark! Take note that on Veteran’s Day VETERANS EAT FOR FREE at the 1st Annual Compadres Veterans Day Fajita Cook-Out! Keep an eye on their Facebook Page for details on this event and many more that support the veteran community and their families.

Interested in a quick little drive up FM 1376? Black Board Bar B Q is located mere minutes up the road in Sisterdale (their mailing address says Boerne, so it still counts!) and they are worth getting fired up about! Chefs Jake & Joe’s menu is dripping with juicy flavor and they have been getting attention from noteworthy sources across the state like Texas Monthly, USA Today 10Best, Kens5 Neighborhood Eats, San Antonio Express News’ 52 Weeks of BBQ, and MYSA. You’ll see why they are being talked about as soon as you sit down. Their menu board reads with selections of meat including Texas Raised Wagyu and Angus Brisket, Wild Boar Jalapeno Cheddar Sausage, and St. Louis Pork Ribs. Their sides are a whole new world. Don’t expect beans and potato salad because they’re nowhere to be found. What they’re serving up is even better! Add on some Luckenbach Lollipops, Mama’s Mac and Cheese, Creamed Corn Maque Choux, Texas Tater Chips, or a heaping portion of Joe’s Asian Slaw! Finish off your meal (if you still have room) with something sweet like house-made from scratch Carrot Cake, Fresh Seasonal Fruit Cobbler, or maybe some simple yet amazing Milk and Cookies. Pro Tip: if you want their famous Burnt Ends, GET THERE EARLY!
