Beer, barbecue and rock ‘n’ roll — what could possibly make for a more satisfying night out on the town? For patrons of the Palomino Smokehouse, these three pillars of fun are a magical combination, and the Palomino, an authentic Texas barbecue restaurant with one of Calgary’s most rollicking live music venues tucked in its basement, serves up generous portions of all three.
Walk into the Palomino and there’s no doubt about what kind of joint you’re dealing with: the walls are covered with kitschy rock and country music posters, vintage beer ads and Southern-style food products. There are TVs tuned to the football game as rock music blasts from the speakers, and the smell of sweet barbecue sauce and slow-cooked meats wafts from the kitchen. It’s a place without pretentions, just good music and food that’ll rival what you’d find in the heart of Texas.
“We do a lot of the classic barbecue dishes here,” says manager, Arlen Smith. “We do Texas brisket, pulled pork, we do ribs. The thing about barbecue is it’s one of the only true North American dishes. It’s classic Southern U.S. cooking. So, it’s barbecued meats, it’s grits, it’s macaroni and cheese, and we want to make it so that if you went to Texas and had barbecue you’d be blown away, but you’d still think we’re just as good.”Read the story of The Palomino Smokehouse
