Botika Is Hosting One of the Best Barbecue Joints in Texas for a Pop-up

If you haven't made a protein pilgrimage to 2M Smokehouse & Catering, one of two San Antonio restaurants to make Texas Monthly's list of Top 50 barbecue joints list, here's your chance.

Pitmaster Esaul Ramos and co. will share a kitchen with Botika (the Peruvian fusion restaurants will prepare appetizers, desserts and beer pairings) and they're bringing the hits: brisket, pulled pork, turkey, pickled nopales and two new items specifically for the pop-up.

2M Smokehouse opened last December and quickly became a favorite among the 'cue cult with very good reason. For the dinner on October 15, Botika will offer unlimited seating, but reservations are a must. Reserve your spot at

303 Pearl Pkwy., Suite 111, (210) 670-7684.
