A terrazzo slab was all that remained on the property. The pecan trees. The breeze. And a simple idea, cold beer. The new building was simple too, a shack really, built on cedar post, and framed up by two buddies, Mike y Mike. Tin siding. And open shutters for the breeze. And in the beginning, an ice machine and a horse trough. Beer on ice. Simple. And so it has been for twenty five years, a place to sit, talk and drink beer.
Located behind the Icehouse the Gill has made a popular name for itself within San Antonio’s South-Town culinary scene.
