The Backyard Kitchen: Peace, Love, and Burgers!

Just minutes from San Antonio is one of Poteet’s friendliest restaurants: The Backyard Kitchen. The Backyard Kitchen is the perfect spot to pick up lunch or bring the whole family for dinner!

After owner Brad Stelzig attended culinary school, he opened the restaurant in May of 2020.

“Craziest time that anybody would open a restaurant,” Stelzig said. “But we put our feet down in the dirt and said ‘this is it. We're going to do it.’”

The Backyard Kitchen’s menu ranges from mouthwatering handmade hamburgers to heavenly quesadillas to delectable salads! Care is put into every detail here at The Backyard Kitchen.

“You’re going to get that one-on-one personal touch every time you visit,” Stelzig said.

With friendly staff, indoor and outdoor seating, and occasional events – The Backyard Kitchen welcomes everyone! There’s even a playground for kids to play on. Or stop by the restaurant when they’re hosting entertainment such as wrestling matches or music performances!

If you’re unsure of what to order when you visit, try The Backyard burger with double meat and double cheese. Or try the buffalo chicken quesadilla with toasty tortillas, melted cheese, and zesty buffalo sauce.

This place truly has something for everyone – even a black bean burger!

The Backyard Kitchen loves Poteet and Poteet loves The Backyard Kitchen. Stelzig makes sure to appreciate the community and its residents. The Backyard Kitchen offers free delivery to the Poteet school district and even hosted a Backpacks for Burgers drive!

“I don’t think you can mention The Backyard Kitchen without mentioning the community,” Stelzig said. “The kids are the future, and we are trying to show them that good things and the positivity can come from someone average.”

Next time you’re looking for incredible food served by a friendly staff, take a drive down to Poteet and check out The Backyard Kitchen.
