We were there for dinner so not too late. Brisket was pretty dry and lacked good smoke flavor. Sausage was dry as well, almost like leftovers from earlier in the week. Ribs were OK. Nice beans but not really the reason we came. We have...More

In my estimation this is the best barbecue restaurant in the country. The sausage is very unique, the sauce is outstanding, the ribs are great. Even the atmosphere, eating on butcher block paper, makes it a Texas experience. If you've never been here, it's a...More

This is the second time I have eaten here. The first time I got the ribs. They were good, but very dry. This time I got the brisket. Same story. Very dry. The sauce is tasty, but I prefer not to have to use sauce.

Having eaten in a lot of BBQ places in Houston, I have found Luling City market in Houston as good as the original in Luling Texas.. You must try.

Place could use some upgrading on the inside, maybe move the soda fountain to the end of the order counter instead of the beginning. Lots of people in line blocking access to get a refill. I had the brisket and ribs and my wife had...More
