‘Lu’ and Ken Wusterhausen, owners of Ingleside on the Bay’s ‘Sunset Hideaway’, retired to Ingleside from the Austin area and looked for ‘something to do’ that was also fun. The seaside business in Bahia Marina will close for the first time this winter and re-open next spring. Ingleside Index
Ken Wusterhausen built his own smokehouse onto the ‘Hideaway’ where he uses coastal oak to cook meats like these briskets for a full 24-hours. He shared that his secret recipe BBQ sauce is so popular, he and his wife are negotiating with the H-E-B grocery chain to start selling it. Ingleside Index
A sample of the many BBQ standards the Wusterhausen’s offer at ‘Sunset Hideaway’ include baby back ribs, chicken, or brisket. The first Thursday of each month has also become ‘meatloaf’ night and their homemade offering sells out quickly. Ingleside Index
They don’t have to work, but they do. In what was once a dock shop, supplying local boaters and offering very little in the range of food options, retirees Luhannah (everyone calls her ‘Lu’) and Ken Wusterhausen opened ‘Sunset Hideaway’ in January 2020, what may be Ingleside on the Bay’s best kept secret smack dab on the edge of Ingleside Cove and the La Quinta Channel.
