Bruno's Dive Bar, Southtown's newest self-proclaimed low-key drinkery, will host Seguin-based barbecue guru Adrian Davila for a pop-up of meaty proportion.

Bruno’s proprietors Steve and Jody Bailey Newman have invited Davila, a third-generation pitmaster and co-owner of Davila's BBQ, to share his family’s nationally recognized approach to authentic Texas barbecue with a unique Latin twist.

Since its inception in 1959, Davila's BBQ has grown into one of Texas' highest-profile barbecue purveyors. Third-generation Pitmaster Adrian Davila now leads the restaurant and continues the tradition with passed-down family recipes.

In 2018, Davila released his first cookbook, Cowboy Barbecue, which has been featured on the Today Show and in the Washington Post and Texas Monthly.

Recently opened Bruno's Dive Bar is located at 1004 S. Alamo St.
