Average Brisket and ribs. Sausage is better than average. Good sides.

Ribs have a good texture. Sausage is good as well. Jalepeno potato salad is awesome if you like food with a bite.

First time here. Brisket, pulled pork were excellent. Sausage was not flavored to my liking but it had a good snap and others may like it.

Thought I would give it a try as mixed reviews. Well.....brisket is very chewy which is strange as it was moist. No smoke ring but peppered correctly. A bit salty as others have said. Sauce has good flavor and was needed but it is very vinegary best part of meal are sides. Mac and cheese and cole slaw spot on. Too bad. 2/5 for meat. 5/5 for sides.

I’m not here to tell you that I’m an authority on barbacoa. I know enough about it to be dangerous, and I’ve eaten enough of it to know that what I ate at Vera’s was something special. The funny part is that the best place to get barbacoa in Texas doesn’t have a single Yelp or Urbanspoon review. Take that however you like, but a visit to Vera’s isn’t exactly adventurous.
