I love brisket but it was just average. Would not stop again but the people were friendly. My husband was happy with his beef.

Readers, I've had a lot of BBQ from the Rockies to Georgia. This one fits right in the category of the BBQ variety you can expect from a central Texas German country store. So you can ignore those negative reviews below. Here's the deal. This business has been famous for decades for their smoked meats-cheeses-sausages-jerky, mostly sold mail order as... More

The ribs were good, but did not have a natural smoked flavor. The brisket was also good but not great. Would not recommend or return.

Try the smoked turkey its mouth watering. I loved their stuffing and the cranberry salad is great.They have a lot of different smoked meats and jerky that is ready to take home. Not just a restaurant.

We had dinner (family with kids), on Sat night, at first we where surprised they closed at 8.00 pm, so we had to speed up out eating session. It is definitely not a restaurant, it is more a shop/self service deli style. no service is provided, fork and knives are plastic. Food was definitely good standard, German flavor. They had... More

My husband and I stopped in; we had driven by a number of times. We were glad we did. It was great food! They have different meats to choose from... and two sides that come with the meals... The food was excellent! They also have cheeses, and meat samples in the lobby for people to try. In short, it was... More

We decided to try this place after my husband was told it was worth going. We arrived about 20 minutes before it closed, but we were welcomed in. The menu is plentiful with several different options of smoked meat as well as salads and sandwiches. There were six of us in our party and most of us tried something different.... More

When we ate at the New Braunfels Smokehouse, I had the brisket and my wife had a three meat sampler. We had sides of cole slaw and creamed corn. Although it was not as good as Rudy's, it was really close. I think the difference was that the brisket at Rudy's was really moist, where the Smokehouse brisket was leaner,... More

We received a Honey Glazed Sprial Ham from this smokehouse for Christmas 2012. This has to be the best ever sprial ham that we have had. It requires no cooking, served at room temperature and is less salty than normal hams. Since Christmas, I have ordered two more for Easter Holiday and for a family that lost a loved one.... More
