Meat fest

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... read more

A visit to New Braunfels is not complete without stopping in and having a meal at the New Braunfels smokehouse. I have been eating here for years and I thoroughly enjoy the ambiance and extensive menu of German delicacies. Wonderful management and a fabulous staff that will go out of their way to make sure you are well satisfied with... More

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

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
