Was unbelievable. Now the brisket was another story, it was chewy and bland. This place was always my favorite go to joint. The first place I went to eat upon arriving in Austin. The last 4 times over a six month period have been disappointing, seems like his heart is not into it.

Stopped Sunday Sept 7 at 11am. Out of beef ribs. I had the brisket, pork ribs, and sliced pork. Pork ribs were fantastic as was the sliced pork. The flavor and tenderness of the pork p

What a disappointment. I had heard good things about this place but it really didn't deliver. I asked for moist brisket. I received a slab of fat with about an eighth of an inch of meat. Tough gross and inedible. I took it back to the counter and they gave me a new order. Much better, but not as good as others I have had. They said "all their brisket is moist" but I have never had anyone serve me something like I got here September 9, 2014. Not sure I would return.

Great ribs, good sides, brisket was moist but the man that runs the register had the worst attitude towards the customers. The local guys that came in he was nice to but I won't go back.

Finally made to to mann's and I wot be going back. Staff was very nice but the best think on my plate was the sides. The brisket and ribs were both bland. Not enough rub or smoke.

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…
