Got the fatty brisket, ribs, and a sausage link - was not disappointed. Not as much kick as advertised. Sides were meh. Great Q in small town environment.

In Wyatt McSpadden’s book Texas BBQ from 2009 there are two evocative early-morning photos of the tall smokestack at Mack’s Split Rail Bar-B-Que in Mineola. Other than these photos, I hadn’t seen or heard much about the place and wondered if maybe it had closed. On a trip to Tyler for a barbecue festival, I took the long way from Dallas through Mineola, and I found Mack’s very much open for business at the corner…
