Enjoyed some sliced brisket and sausage. The lean brisket was moist and tender. Nice smoke flavor.

Finally got to eat here and SO worth the wait! Brisket was amazing. No fancy rubs or magic mops, just perfectly cooked and seasoned beef with incredible texture and flavor! All served by some of the nicest folks I've ever come across in my BBQ travels. Can't wait to come back and do it again!

Outstanding! Had a light lunch - 1/4 lbs of the brisket, 1/4 lbs of pulled pork. Juicy good. The brisket had a nice pink ring & awesome crust... Oh, don't forget the fried pie. I had the cherry, but you won't go wrong with any flavor.

A little holiday weekend feast..we told ours to go & the brisket uncut to maintain moisture---it was perfect, great bark and pepper taste to the melt in your mouth brisket. But the special surprise today were the pork ribs. Don't miss the potatoe salad, some secret ingredient (blue cheese? Sour cream?) makes it exceptional. & while it doesn't need it, the sauce is perfect--better than Louis Mueller's, which has been my long time favorite. Highly recommend.

Brisket a little tough, but great flavor. Sausage on point today, overall 4.5/5 and delicious. Pro tip: spicy rice and mac and cheese for sides

State Highway 290 runs right through the middle of Brenham, Texas, a town know more for ice cream than smoked meats. Its location makes it a perfect mid-point stop for road trips between Houston and Austin. Living in Dallas I don’t travel this route much so I made a point to go to Brenham in a very round-about trip from Bryan to Lexington. I figured this town had more than just ice cream. I hadn’t…
