Made a quick trip from SA to check on this place. Brisket solid albeit inconsistent. Pork ribs were good; sausage and potato salad okay. Overall solid Q place to stop by if you're driving on I-35.

Great ribs fall of the bone with a bite. Brisket was dry hard chewy.

I only had brisket and sausage, but it was very good. It is now on my repeat visit list. Brisket: flavorful bark, very moist and tender and excellent flavor. Jalapeño sausage: good snap, consistency and flavor. I would like it even more if it was a little more spicy.

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…
