Brisket had a nice smokey flavor. Sausage had a nice crunch in the casing and good seasoning. Ribs could use more smoke flavor but nice and moist.

Had the gut pack with brisket ad german sausage would have been perfect if they had left the pickled onions and jalapeños off like I asked good place will try again

I stop in here on way back from NE TX to Austin. Great brisket. Just right amount of smoke and tenderness. You will almost always see Kirby in back slicing brisket. You know you are in a place that wants you to taste most flavorful cut when they charge more for lean cut than moist.

Their beef sausage is fantastic. Brisket is not too bad either.

I really like the flavor and moistness of the brisket here. Sauce is also great.

For some reason the location on the hill does not quite match the food quality on the 2222 lake location.

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…
