Just returning from a trip to Texas I wondered how a new barbecue place in Brooklyn would stack up. It is without reservation that I say that Hometown is as good if not better than anything in Texas. We were a group of 11 people so I had the opportunity to try a number of different dishes, I strongly recommend the "beef rib." They cut it off the bone and the meat melts in your mouth. The brisket is also great. The atmosphere is as good if not better than that of a Texas barbecue joint. I love this restaurant and will most definitely be back.
