The only good thing at this place is the rub they sell.

This is the same place in Cibolo not Shertz. Please read previous post. You will not be disappointed.

Had a great lunch here today. I was leaving Cibolo City Hall and the smell of BBQ was in the air. I always thought this place was closed but the line in front begged to differ. I had the two meat plate brisket (lean and moist)and ribs. The brisket had a great smokey flavor and the lean slice was a little dry however the moist slice made up for it. Very tender, very smokey and full of flavor. The ribs were great. Full size ribs are my fav and that is what they served. The ribs were full of flavor smoked well. Didn't need the BBQ sauce but it was good too. I will be back again!!!

Brisket and beef rib were both way over salted. This is the 4th time in the last 6 months with this same problem. Cooper's in Llano doesn't have this problem. I won't visit the Austin location again.

Brisket and pork belly, beans and broccoli/cheese all were great

Houston has an embarrassment of riches when it comes to barbecue. The new barbecue joints keep coming, and they continue to impress. The latest is from 27-year-old Grant Pinkerton, who had a line wrapped out of his door and down to the end of the building in the Heights when he held a soft opening of Pinkerton’s Barbecue on December 3. Thankfully for those seeking a barbecue lunch, things have died down a bit since then….
