“Great variety of BBQ”
Reviewed March 17, 2013

We went here after getting the groupon and were very impressed with what we found. They have a wide variety of different BBQs and a huge selection of items to purchase to take home with all different kinds of smoked meats, sausages, etc. We ate at the restaurant and found everything we had to be good. We will definitely be going back!

“Had Not Been Here In 20 Years”
Reviewed February 18, 2013

We last stopped in New Braunfels Smokehouse perhaps 20 years ago. Have been getting the mail out catalogs for years though. The ad that got us to thinking was the one showing the chicken and dumplings which we love. This place has been around since 1945 and is still thriving. The old fashion dumplings and chicken are the entrée to order.I do believe though that the food and serve was better years ago. This place has a loot of competition that it did not have many years ago.

“It's meat.”
Reviewed January 4, 2013

Was heading home and stopped in to pick up some brisket and sausage since I was driving by and it was easy. Nothing special especially in a town that has good BBQ. I got it to go, but there was no one inside eating around 5PM. The brisket was more expensive than other BBQ in the area.

“All things smoked are best here!”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

This smokehouse is the best around. They choose their cuts well (such as pork chops) and have some fat in their sausages but nothing more than to make a good sausage. They don't overload the fat here.

I also send care packages to my relatives each year for the Holiday season. As gift packages go, These are reasonably priced for the high Quality product they produce. They also supply the brauts to Wunderfest.

“My, how things have changed!”
Reviewed November 4, 2012

My history with the New Braunfels Smokehouse goes back many years. Every time I drove past New Braunfels, I made it a point to stop in for a meal and several rings of the wonderful Bismarkian sausage.

The "new" location (at the back of the original property) is much smaller and has a very limited menu. The Bismarkian sausage is just as good, but there's a little "something" missing that changes the experience from really outstanding to a little more in the middle.
