Pleasant surprise for a Luling BBQ snob

We stopped in on our way to Dallas. Being born and raised on the best BBQ in the world, City Market in Luling, I doubted this would stack up. Although we were disappointed that the restaurant was not serving pulled pork that day (not sure why), the brisket and sides were really good and the sausage... read more

I absolutely love smoked brisket with the crust and smoke flavor. Hearing so much about Schoepf's BBQ, I figured I would give it a try. I was disappointed to see the brisket came out of the cooking area wrapped in foil, sitting in a roasting pan. Once they opened the foil, it was evident that it was not open pit... More

Schoepf's has some of the best BBQ around. There numerous choices and I've never been disappointed. When people visiting the area ask about getting some good ole Texas BBQ, this is the place I suggest.

A great place to eat some of the finest BBQ around! My favorite is the BBQ chicken, but everything I've tried has been delicious!

Or Son took us here while we were visiting. He said it would be worth the 45 minute drive. He was spot on! A minimal wait, but it is to be expected because of the lunch crowd on Sunday. 15-20 minutes, but well worth it. The Brisket, never had better, quail breast stuffed with jalapeño and wrapped in bacon, will... More

As a Texan BBQ is important. I hope that Schoefpf's gets back to the basics and does better than I was served. The brisket was not up the this Texans standards. However e peach cobbler was very good. The restaurant was clean and had lots of eminites to look at. For the price it was average, and for a small... More

Schoepf's has a reputation for serving excellent Q and thus we felt it rightfully deserved a visit. However, the place is doing so well that they appear to now charge for parking on evenings when they have concerts. Just trying to grab some quality Q, we were not amused when two high school-aged kids with no signage or even shirts... More

Great food and love the quail plate. The sides were very good and a lot to choose from. My favorite is the beans and potato salad.

We found this place on Trip Advisor and decided to try it out. We had the brisket, sausage, and turkey. It was all very delicious. We also had the macaroni and cheese, potatoes augrautin, and green beans. Everything was very good. The pecan pie was great also!
