Are you looking for some great BBQ in the Southside? Double A’s BBQ has what you want, and we had a chance to chat with the owner, Adrian Davila.
Adrian owns and operates Double A’s BBQ, proudly serving as the pitmaster. With over 20 years of experience in sales and marketing, from M&M candy sales at Abraham Kazen Middle School to new home construction sales with the largest home builder in the nation, he knew what it took to start a business. Adrian was born and raised in the Southside of San Antonio, as the second oldest of eight children. That is where he began cooking for his 7 siblings, as well as watching his Dad out on the BBQ pit. Adrian said, “I’ve always been around cooking but didn’t really find my passion until I discovered online and in-person BBQ courses during COVID-19.”
He graduated from South San High School and played college football at El Camino College in Torrance, California, Texas A&M University-Kingsville, and ended with two years of semi-pro football.
Adrian left behind a six figure career to pursue his passion for grilling and smoking meats. When asked if it was easy, Adrian said “ If it was a smooth road everyone would be doing it. You have to love the process. That’s the excitement. Struggles are all opportunities to learn and get better.”
He is most proud of the overwhelming support he has received. One thing that sets him apart from others is his positive mental attitude. He has learned to maintain a good attitude at all times, regardless of the situation.
Adrian said “I may look large and in charge but I promise I don’t bite. Simply connect with me. Give me a call, send me a text, or reach out to me on social media. We, us, together.”
For all new business owners he says” Set a goal, HIT a goal! You’re gonna have ups and downs. Everyone gets knocked down. It’s how you react and respond to adversities that makes you who you are.”
