Was one of our "go-to" BBQ places. Not anymore. We will not be stopping here after several visits with uninteresting/bland brisket. Sad to see a NB area staple become so bad. Service and food are poor. Prices are too high for the quality of food. Better places for 'cue in the area.

Texas barbecue ranks at the top of the nation's best and there are many excellent purveyors of smoked brisket, ribs, sausage, chicken and the like throughout the Lone Star State. So, I can only shake my head in wonder at how a place like New Braunfels Smokehouse has stayed in business for so long while serving such a mediocre brisket... More

As with all BBQ places the smoked brisket is always hit and miss. On this occasion even asking for moist parts with some fat I got a plate of "reasonable" meat. It was neither moist not dried out so was OK but nowhere near what I was expecting. There was no fat either. Service was good and everyone was friendly.... More

The Smoke House was right across the street from the Hotel so I could walk over. The Chicken Salad Sandwich was my FAVORITE. I ate the at least 5 times during my 2 week stay. Friendly and Clean Good prices!

I always seem to stop here as I'm heading out of New Braunfels back home. This time I had the Wurst Kabob Plate advertised as five kinds of sausage on a stick with beans, potato salad and bread. I switched to the cole slaw, very good vinegar based, and the hot German potato salad, always one of my favorites. The... More

We enjoy this place. I like their turkey with dressing. It's the only thing I'll get. If it isn't available, we go somewhere else. They make great BarBQue. The sausages are good. I like taste testing the jerky. Most of their sides are terrific. I love the cranberry dressing, no mayo. We usually spend $20 on 2 of us. The... More

Okay, I liked the potato salad. And that concludes this writing. I could easily make this meal at home. One benefit was the workers knew what did and did not contain gluten, a no-no for me. That was a plus. We got out of here for $15 for two meals, so the prices were very reasonable.

This location used to be very rustic, but they now have a new, big building. We found this change in atmosphere not as appealing. The food was okay, however, when ordering, I would suggest requesting "lean", otherwise you may not be satisfied. When having your order taken, I would suggest patience and clarity (our order was all mixed up and... More
