Came back again this trip thru, loved it again. They have Good meal deal with sandwich, side & drink at a reasonable BBQ place price. Brisket was great, along with sauce and yummy Cole Slaw! We'll be back when passing thru again!

...which is exactly what we did one noontime a few weeks ago, and it was a great experience. Hams, sausage, pork of all description, for stocking up your freezer -- all are terrific. The lunch we had -- ribs (what else?), slaw, potato salad, bread -- was an unexpected bonus. The ribs were wonderful, and the sides were quite good... More

(This was a mail order.) We order from The New Braunfels Smokehouse every year. It seems the quality is going down each tip. This time we ordered the Smoked Brisket. Taste was good but the meat was very stringy and fatty (more than normal brisket).

We had not visited here in many years and was surprised that they had remodeled into a deli style instead of their full service restaurant. But the food was still as good as we remembered. The German potato salad was excellent as well as the warm sauerkraut that was so tender. We chose the sandwich lunch special and was not... More

We planned a tubing day on the Comal River but it started to rain cats and dogs so we ended up bowling and shopping on our bak to the hotel. Nice place, good service. The most difficult part of our visit was to chose from the large range of meats and sausages ! Considering to contact them for international shipping...

My son lives there and insisted on eating there. I consider myself a Foodie living in The Woodlands TX. The BBQ was average. Nothing spectacular but it was good for the price. Lots of "take home meats"

New Braunfels Smokehouse is a real gem! I first received a mail order catalog from New Braunfels catalog about 10 years ago and became a consistent customer. I visited their restaurant around 6 years ago and I now make it a point to stop in every year I'm in Texas because it's worth it!. Aesthetic Appeal & Atmosphere: The atmosphere... More
