Had the honor of darkening he door step at one of Houston's oldest barbecue shacks and came away with an ok barbecue experience. Fundamentally I have had better barbecue in numerous places. The brisket was solid with a heavy hinted of pepper. The ribs were pretty dry and the sausage was extremely unremarkable. The ambiance was excellent and really made the journey worth the stop but I truly expects better barbecue for the prices that they charged.

Legends in the barbecue world perpetuate themselves. Keeping your doors open for decades takes hard work, loyal customers, and a little luck, and it doesn’t happen that often. In return, such barbecue joints are worshiped for their longevity, and rightly so. It’s a huge benefit, but it also comes with some disadvantages. Unlike upstarts who can charge more, tailor a menu for today’s tastes, and have no past to answer to, storied barbecue joints carry…
