Lean and extra lean

Bill Miller Bar-B-Q offers those options in the brisket department, a treat for those who dislike the underdone and greasy. Famished, we found ourselves at the one on Slaughter. I’ve had Bill Miller’s stuff at catered events but had never dined on site. This was busy. I liked being able to avoid fatty brisket and I did. Brisket is all I had. The first quarter-pound was good enough to return for the second. Bill Miller charges extra for jalapenos: 31 cents for one or four for a dollar. There wasn’t detectable smokiness to the brisket, but neither was there any of the ketchup taste that I dislike. Among the items that I didn’t try personally, the opinion was that the potato salad wasn’t much like home-made versions, the slaw was just fine, the sausage was neither here nor there, and the beans were good but bland. The brownies and pies tempted but nobody at the table partook. The system here is to place your order, pay, and wait for your number to be called. Indoors this place was busy and well after noon on a Saturday the drive-up window was busy as well. I liked the photo wall displaying shapshots of Bexar County kids with their prize 4-H swine. The acoustics here aren’t good. The restrooms are clean and the dining area is constantly being tidied. There are standard combo plates and also daily specials. Several people who had called or faxed in orders stopped by to pick them up. This is a place to enjoy honest food at honest prices for anyone caught in the neighborhood at mealtime.
