The links are to die for. Great taste! The pork bones are pretty unique and worth a try, especially with the tasty sauce.

Had the German sausage and moist brisket. German has a nice flavor snd the skin has a good crunch. I personally would prefer a more course texture. Brisket has a good bark, nice flavor. I swiped a rib from my son. It was a little dry from being the end piece. Good flavor.

Brisket was delicious. Moist withou being too fatty. Great meat crust. Sausage wasn't as good as advertised. Not bad. I was just expecting more.

It's the full pork ribs here that steal the show! Nice bark, not too thick or dry, good smoke ring and perfectly tender. One if the finest pork ribs in Tx. Chopped brisket and sausage were good. Service was excellent and the restaurant was very clean and well run.

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…
