At silver saddle smokehouse in Bellville. Brisket is amazing with big ol smoke ring. Almost all fat rendered which left such a juicy and melt in your mouth meat on my plate. Soooo good. Sides are also good. Corn casserole has a ton of flavor and spice. Not sure why not listed as bbq joint. So I requested it.

Some of the worst bbq ever. But the folks are very friendly.

Two ribs one smoked sausage and a slice of salami all stellar hit the spot with Fritos and sharp cheddar

Finally made it here and all meats were on the table. Nothing I can write will do this place justice. Truly the best BBQ I have ever tasted. The rub on the brisket and beef rib is like its own delicious side dish. Can't wait to come back!

Pricey, but good. Meat was flavorful by itself without the dunking in the vinegary sauce. I won't get it that way next time.

Great smoked flavor. The brisket was great and tender and the turkey has just the right amount of spice. I'll be back!

No trip to San Marcos is complete without a stop here! Nothing fancy for me...just a beef rib and a tray full of brisket is all I need to put me back in my happy place.

My first trip to Valentina’s was on a whim. I stopped at the trailer behind the Star Bar on Sixth Street in Austin on my way out of town. A friend was writing a story on taco variations, and I thought I might be able to add a novelty to his story – Texas barbecue in a taco. I didn’t know what to expect from this mash-up of Tex-Mex and barbecue, but it wasn’t much….
