First time and the slaw is AWSOME!

Arrived hungry, left with a hand cart (actually 2 lbs. of brisket & 2 lbs of pulled pork...maybe to share with my friends back home. "This is what real barbecue is!') While I was picking up my order I woofed down the pulled pork sandwich. Each bite was moist & smoked to perfection. I also had the smoked collard greens...I wish they sold these in the grocery store. The greens were done just right. Not over cooked to soggy mush, but with a slight crunch with a little pulled pork to boot. I'll be sure to visit when I'm back. I love this place.

good thing the meat is superb, because I'm not a fan of the sauce

Pork ribs are superb. Brisket was a little dry. Ribs don't need sauce which is a good thing because the sauce isn't good. Lockhart slaw has a kick and is ok. Bbq beans are fair. Overall pretty good. Glad I came but won't make any special trips back.

Rudys BBQ seems to be the most consistent BBQ in Waco. Moist brisket and sausage is always good. Several places to eat BBQ in Waco but always hit or miss.

John Brotherton and Jay Yates seemed headed in different directions in the barbecue business until they found a way to work together. Both started with their own food trucks. John ran Hall of Flame BBQ in Pflugerville, but it closed earlier this year. Jay was successful enough with Curly’s Perfect Pig that he decided to make a move into a permanent building in downtown Round Rock. After John had shut down Hall of Flame he traveled…
