Give it a try!

The sausage and chicken salad were excellent. The ribs and brisket were okay. The family says 4/5. We had great service.

Great place for lunch. Quick friendly service . Great salads and sandwiches at a great price. Worth locating this place. We will return and be taking some smoked meats with us!

We stop by here at least once every time we travel to San Marcos or new Braunfels, and the service and food are always spot on. The brisket is tender and delicious, the sauce is amazing, and you'll be hard pressed to find better french fries.

I've ordered beef jerky from here by mail for over 20 years. Since we were passing thru here I HAD to stop and check it out. The restaurant is a nice clean quaint little place. BEST beef jerky in the world!

This is my 2nd time at the new Braunfels smokehouse. I couldn't remember if I liked the German potato salad or regular potato salad. The lady let me try them both, great staff! The turkey plate was a little dry but the German potato salad made up for it! My other family members loved the brisket.

This was the worst meal my Husband & I have ever had in New Braunfels. This was a wonderful place when you could set down and have a server wait on you and the menu was wonderful Now it nothing but a fast food set up and below average food.

Of all the barbeque places around New Braunfels, this one is low on my list. The meats are generic and their prices a slightly above most others.

Was very excited to finally visit a place that I have mail ordered from for years. We were not disappointed and really enjoyed the brisket and sauerkraut.

We come to this restauart every time we are in New Braunfels. The meat is excellent, plus the prices are great. They also sell beef jerkey (highly recommended!), jams, and lots of other food items to take home. You can't beat the meat here!

We visited this place years ago and have ordered their gift packs ever since. On this trip we took our grandchildren who loved reading the funny signs on the walls. The smokehouse sandwiches are as good as ever but what really made the visit special was the patience with which the young man behind the counter took the kids' orders.... More
