Our Story

Low and Slow. Something magical happens when smoke meats brisket that transcends the pit. It happens at the picnic table where friends and family are drawn together and screens magically disappear into pockets.
For B.R. Anderson, barbecue was the medium that brought laughter to his table. Every Wednesday evening, B.R. would leave his corporate job and take his place at the pit. Creating all sorts of smoked and grilled meats and world famous sides (or at least down the block famous). When he grilled it, they would come and it was those moments that made B.R. the happiest.

Finally, in 2012, B.R. wised up, quit his corporate job and did what any rational person would do -- buy and refurbish a food truck with his son Kyle. What was once a passion became a calling. The mobile smoker enabled B.R. and Kyle to bring meats into the community and B-Daddy's took off. Follow the smoke from the B-Daddy's trailer and you'd spot them at Spurs tailgates, the Rodeo and more. What was a small, Wednesday family gathering became a six day a week gathering with B.R.'s extended family -- the people of San Antonio.

Fast forward to 2016 and it was time to put down roots. With the support of their close friends and family, B-Daddy's opened it's doors in Helotes, welcoming the community to pull up chair and become family for an hour or three. Swing by today and you'll still find B.R. behind the grill with his right hand man, Kyle, manning the front of the house. Though his daughter Haley receives credit for the name B-Daddy, Kyle is a silent and steady force of the family operation.
The location might have changed from days in B.R.s backyard but the recipes are still authentically family style barbecue. The smoke washes out of your clothing but the laughter is forever.

"The brisket grilled cheese sandwich is a hit with two buttery slices of Texas toast wrapped around cheese and tender brisket. Double down on the dairy with a side of jalapeño cream corn with just the right amount of heat and a not-too-runny, not-too-thick consistency that would make Goldilocks proud."
"At this Helotes landmark, you can get sides that include jalapeño cheddar creamed corn, chipotle coleslaw or properly made borracho beans in addition to the solid traditional sides. Perhaps the best way to describe this menu is classic Central Texas-style barbecue of tender brisket, lightly sauced ribs and sausage with accents of some spicy flavors."
"Located just outside Bexar County city limits is B-Daddys Barbeque - a staple in Old Town Helotes. Everyday meats are smoked in the early hours of the morning with an experience waiting inside. Sample a little bit of everything with a barbe-cuterie: briket, turket, and Sweet Tea Glazed ribs cooked St. Louis style with shareable snacks on the side."
