We make great barbacoa, guaranteed!
Papi’s Barbacoa Mission:
Our mission is to give the people of San Antonio the best barbacoa so their family can start their weekend with a great breakfast.
It all started with family…
Noe Pineda Sr (Papi) and Maggie Pineda founded Papi’s Barbacoa back in 2001 with hopes of making enough to provide for their family of nine (yes, 9 children).
Although they were only open on the weekends, Papi woke up every morning at 4am for his day job and his newly opened business on the weekend.
The Pineda Family
With the help of his children…
Papi’s became a local favorite with great barbacoa, hot spicy menudo, delicious tamales, and free samples of charro beans!
The Pineda Family worked so hard to make Papi’s a success.
With Maggie working as a realtor and taking care of the kids full-time while Papi grinding at his full-time job AND running Papi’s Barbacoa, the previous owners of La Luz Tortilla Factory took notice and offered to sell the business to them!
Without knowing how to make tortillas, Papi and his wife took that chance!
Now, the Pineda Family has TWO Papi’s Barbacoa AND La Luz Tortilla Factory!
