“Not bad at all”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2014

Finally made it out to Smithville to try Zimmerhanzels and they do not disappoint. The moist brisket is delicious. Ribs are great sauce is good. Don't waste ur time with the macaroni salad tho. It tasted like honey mustard. Will come back

“Quick late lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2014

The chopped beef sandwich was v.good (first time I have seen my wife eat the WHOLE THING); the sliced beef plate was also very good (cole slaw was excellent). Get there early, we were there at 3:00 on a Friday and my wife ate most of the chopped beef and there was only some sliced beef - when the meat is gone - they close.

Outstanding! Get there early for lunch or you'll miss out! Generous pirtions, reasonably priced! One of the best "Off the beaten Path" BBQ joints in the state. Great Banana Pudding to top it off!

“Awesome Ribs - Finger Licking Good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2014

Almost made the mistake of coming here for dinner. We would have missed out on the best ribs I have ever had. This place is a small restaurant that serves great brisket and ribs with all the sides and when its gone, its gone. The owners of the place we were staying for the weekend warned us not to wait until the afternoon, but to get down there before noon. We got there about 11:30 and the line was already snaking around the back edges of the room. Good thing we got there early. We left with ribs, brisket, sausage and all the fixings necessary. Absolutely delicious.

“Authentic small town texas BBQ!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2014

Ranked by tx monthly magazine in the top 25 in the big state of tx! Great brisket with the required smokiness and tender to the fork! Sausage is ok... Sides are typical BBQ fare... Tasty! Friendly service with a lot of locals!
