Alamo BBQ Co. will participate in Culinaria’s Restaurant Week Jan. 21 through Feb. 2.

After four years on East Grayson, lauded San Antonio chef Jason Dady is closing Alamo BBQ Co. by the end of the month. Dady, who also owns Jardin, Tre Trattoria, and Two Bros. BBQ, explained the closure in a social media statement. 

In it, he says Memorial Day, May 30, will be the final day of service for Alamo BBQ. 

"This isn’t a pandemic closure, it’s simply a business decision," Dady says online. "Our lease is up and we were unable to come to an agreement that made sense for us to stay on Grayson Street with the current limitations that the construction in the area has challenged us with since 2005."

Alamo BBQ opened on East Grayson in 2018 in the space of Dady's former Bin Tapas Bar.

The chef recognizes the burgeoning Broadway corridor, but says it's "simply not enough" to reup a multiyear lease. Dady also says he is "still on the prowl" for a new Shuck Shack location. The seafood and fried chicken restaurant closed in November 2019. 

"[...] when it's time to move on, you listen to your instincts and do your best to finish out with pride, respect and integrity," his announcement says. 

Dady thanked Government Hill and his staff.  He also encourages customers to stop by Two Bros. BBQ, his other business on West Avenue, to cure any 'cue cravings. Dady did not say if another location would be pursued for Alamo BBQ, but signed off with the following: 

"Big things are on our horizon and we are excited for what the future will bring. This isn’t goodbye, simply we will see you again later."
