The Mecca Has Been Found!! City Market, Luling!!!!

City Market, Luling                                                                  

What a great experience!! Right when I walked through these sacred doors of BBQ I realized I was somewhere special. As I was waiting in line to get into the separated pit room and order all I could do is take in the smells and visual delicacies that the people who already had their food were showing off. I’m not kidding when I say this but the dining room and pit room were perfect. Take Smitty’s pit room and combine it with Louie Mueller’s dining room and there you have it. Everyone seemed excited to be spending their Saturday night at City Market, and I was about to find out why. I was minutes away from BBQ perfection. I was minutes away from accomplishing what I have been searching for since I was 9 years old. So let’s get to my reviews because I have never written one like this. City Market is like getting a hole in one on a par 4, it is more than one of a kind…….

 

Pork Ribs

I couldn’t even give myself a second to sit down after carrying my sausage and ribs back to my table wrapped in butcher table with a simple onion. I took my first bite of the pork rib and the clouds in heaven parted and angels sung. This was it. I’ve been searching for this moment since I was 9 years old in Fort Worth. “The best rib ever? Where is it,” I would ask myself. Well 34 years later and I have found it and City Market in Luling is the answer to my Texas BBQ prayers. These are the holy grail of ribs. Salty & tangy all at the same time, while the tenderness of the meat falls off the bone. Pork ribs are my favorite form of BBQ, and these are the best I’ve ever had,and I’ve had a lot!!

5/5

Hot Sausage


OK so now I’m ready for the letdown, the ribs were perfect so the sausage can’t be right? WRONG! City Market just kept producing mouth watering experiences and the sausage was Excellent!! All beef sausage with a crispy  pork casing. The crunch was perfect and the taste and texture was amazing. I’m blown away at this point with Luling city market. I really mean it, BLOWN AWAY! I love my local BBQ joints in Cowtown and really didn’t think it could THAT much better, but wow, can it ever.

As a side note the BBQ sauce here was also extroidinary. It complimented a bite of sausage and raw onion perfectly.

 

This is the first time I have ever given this kind of rating and as I do, I literally beg you as a fellow BBQ lover and Texas BBQ Guide reader to visit City Market as soon as you can. It should always be on every BBQ lovers bucket list if you dont live real close, but I would recommend a road trip any day of the week to experience this perfection. I’m giving  City Market 5/5 stars and declaring it the best ribs and sausage I’ve ever had. I couldn’t stop eating & so I decided I’d make a trip back to taste the brisket. This place has given me a full stomach and permanent BBQ smile.

I sincerely thank you City Market. What you do, you do amazing.

Buzzies-Kerrville

Buzzies ribs had dry decent flavor. You have to work them a little to get the meat off the bone. Rub is seasoned well and not over applied but overall just so/so. 

2.5/5
2.75/5 with sauce

Jalapeño sausage

Very good crusty pop and pretty good distribution of meat, cheese, & jalapeño. I liked the crunch but the flavor could have been deemed on the  bland side, even with the jalapeño bite. Mix this with Buzzies BBQ sauce though and you have a real winner. I usually don’t judge with BBQ sauce but for Buzzies I will because I liked the sauce so much.

3/5 stars
3.75/5 with sauce

Brisket
Great moisture, good blackened crust, lack of smoke flavor. They smoke with oak at Buzzies and I feel the smoke flavor was a little understated. The texture was almost perfect and with the BBQ sauce (I’m laughing as I write this because of my usual disdain for BBQ sauces making the BBQ) popping some flavor onto the meat. I would recommend the brisket if your in the area with generous amounts of the sauce.

3/5 stars
3.75/5 with sauce

Bbq sauce
4/5
Actually pretty perfect. Just perfect amount of sweetness & spice. This sauce really turned the meal around. I was disappointed in the flavors of the meats even the sausage with jalapeños but the sauce was amazing & turned the experience around.

Strawberry cobbler
Amazing!! Amazing desert perfect blend of sweetness and utterly delicious.
5/5

Peach cobbler
Not as good as the strawberry but classic and sweet. But still 4/5 stars

 

 

 

 

 

Taylor’s cafe, Taylor Texas

BAR-B-QUE REPORT CARD

What a dive!! But I like it!! This place is basically underneath the overpass in a small run down red building that looks more like a bar when you come in. The service is fast an pleasant and the atmosphere reeks of authentic Texas BBq. Even the toilets are very old school :)

Brisket: The brisket is not as blackened like Muellers but the taste is amazing and the smoke flavor is abundant. I really liked it Alot. The BBQ sauce is good but actually takes away from the natural taste of the brisket. The brisket is just that good and the BBQ sauce really isn’t.
4 Stars


Pork ribs:
Ok I’m a rib man an dang it I’m disappointed again. These ribs were good but not great, tender but not tended enough. I’d eat them occasionally of I lived closer but not all the time. I guess a little better than par. They fell off in places and stuck in others where they should have fallen off. The flavor was decent and enjoyable but it didn’t blow my mind.
2.5 Stars

Sausage: The sausage is decent. The pop was there but not distinct and I noticed a slight dryness to the meat. Though better than average, I’d say just barely. I can’t think of a word but I’d also say it was a bit grainy. The sausage is actually really improved by the BBQ sauce. The sauce backfired on the two previous choices but hit home on the sausage and really made it better.
3 Stars

Chopped Beef Sandwich: The chopped beef Sandwich is ok at best but that’s because of the BBQ sauce. This sauce really reminds me of sloppy joe sauce instated of deep Texas BBQ sauce and it hurts tha sandwich. The sandwich is still good but just not up to par with others.
2.5 Stars

Over All: I really like Taylor Cafe. The hole on the wall feel is real, it is a hole in the wall. Usually a place that looks like this and has this kind of reputation doesn’t disappoint & it didn’t, but it didnt blow my mind either. I’d come back for sure but would focus on the Brisket and have to stay away from my beloved ribs.

Louie Mueller Barbecue, St. Taylor, Texas

BAR-B-QUE REPORT CARD

Located in this building since 1959 you cant help but realize your part of Texas BBQ history when you’re here. I ABSOLUTLEY loved the atmosphere because of this but I can tell you the 90 degree temperatures on the inside had my blue Texas Rangers T shirt looking like I just went swimming. BBQ is served as I believe it should be on white butcher paper and the staff is very friendly and helpful. I wish I had gotten a better view of the pit but maybe next time. On to the three meats I tried:

Brisket: The brisket was the best I have ever had up until this point. It was peppery & black crusted and held all the smoke flavor in perfectly. I couldn’t get enough and I’m a rib man not a brisket man. I loved the texture and the flavor literally popped when it hit the taste buds. I could go on and on but this was easy to rate:
5 Stars


Pork ribs:
The ribs. Oh man the ribs were a straight letdown after that brisket. They were on the tough side and stuck to the bone. The flavor was lackluster and just basically the exact opposite of the brisket. I don’t know what else to say except I was let down.
2 Stars

 

Beef Sausage: Ok, ok, ok, we just made a comeback after the ribs. I loooooved this sausage. 100% beef and man was it good. Muellers really knows how to do beef and this sausage is another testimony of that. The crust popped perfectly and the juices exploded out of the meat. It was literally perfect an I would recommend to anyone.
4 Stars

Over All: My experience here from first arriving was excitement and I was not let down. Even though ribs are my preferred BBQ choice and I was disappointed the sausage made up for that and the brisket blew me away. I’m still sweating as I write this but I don’t care as I really like authentic old school BBQ joints and if I ever had to paint one this ranks right up there with some of the other best. All said and done Louie Mueller gets a……….

Woodshed Smokehouse, Fort Worth, Texas

BAR-B-QUE REPORT CARD

Located in the TCU area of Fort Worth Woodshed has a cool location right on the Trinity river across from the Zoo and Colonial Country Club. This is a sit down BBQ joint on the nicer end of most BBQ’s I’ve been too and by far the most modern. It’s funny because as I walked in it had more of a Dallas feel which in Fort Worth can be considered a bad thing. It is very modern and open aired. Luckily I visited on a Texas August day when the temps somehow are about 80, that is NOT ordinary and I wonder how it would be to eat here in a deep heated sweat. I can imagine this being a real cool place to hang in the Fall or Spring.

Beef Tenderloin: Served cold and loved the flavor. This was by far the best thing I ate. I ate it dry and with some of the Woodshed bbq sauce. Both the meat and the sauce were very very good. This was a very good piece of meat and I would highly recommend it. Is it worth coming here just for this? Maybe if you toss in a comfortable night and a few cold beers.
4½ Stars


Pork Ribs:
Very disappointing. Smoked with pecan wood & heavily rubbed the Woodshed ribs are on the tougher side. It’s hard to compare against the other Fort Worth BBQ establishments, but pork ribs which are my favorite aren’t close to the rivals in town. Tough, and rubbed too heavy. The flavor is decent once you get the meat off the bone into your mouth. But at times it was a chore to do so.
2½ Stars

Atmosphere: 3½ Stars

Woodshed BBQ sauce : 2½ Stars

Beef Ribs: Very tender for beef & rub was very good on initial taste.I’m not a huge beef rib fan but I liked this and it’s tenderness. One rib is fine even though I’m a big eater, not bc of its size but the rub sets in differently and is a bit strong in the long run. It seems this is a constant at Woodshed, they seem to be focused on rubs instead of smoke.
3½ Stars

Over All: All in all I feel woodshed is a great place to come drink a beer on a comfortable summer night and eat some of the tenderloin served cold. As for the ribs they are tough and don’t compare to the places down the street. Woodshed is also a bit on the pricey side. You definitely pay for the atmosphere. If your looking for a fancy modern BBQ place and don’t fancy flavor as much, Woodshed is the place.

Natty Flat Smoke House, Lipan, Texas

BAR-B-QUE REPORT CARD

Natty Flat Smoke House, 19280 U.S. 281, Lipan, TX 76462

Brisket: A hair dry, needed sauce to get it down. The taste and smokiness was mediocre at best. It was very bland almost tasted boiled with no solid smoke ring. Very disappointing.
2 Stars


Sausage:
Good taste but lacks crunchy outer crust. The taste was good but I really like to get that cruch when I have a goos bite of sausage. Its not spicy but very flavorful.
3½ Stars

Atmosphere:
Very unique & cool
Very kid friendly
Lots of candy, cookies, ice cream, & fudge for sale Unique outhouse restrooms
4½ Stars

Ribs: Great rub and decent tenderness but a little too sticky to the bone. I was expecting more and that might have been the problem. Again, I wonder what their procedure with the ribs is and I wish I had taken a look at the smokehouse.
2½ Stars

Regular BBQ sauce : Regular bbq sauce was delicious, though I’m not a BBQ sauce lover. Natty Flat sold their sauce in mason jars and I would have bought some if I really liked sauce.
2½ Stars

Hot BBQ Sauce:  Sauce was subtle to be called hot, but who cares what it’s called if it’s good and this BBQ sauce is. Like I said previously I don’t like BBQ sauce much, especially very hot sauces but this hot bbq sauce was to my liking. Subtle when tasted with a subtle spark of heat a moment later that was tasty but hard to detect. I’d rename it tasty but Luke warm bbq sauce. I’d usually rather not use bbq sauce but brisket was dry enough to give it a shot & it was good. Condiments were available on a condiment bar and were fresh & plentiful.

Over All: All said and done, wonderfully fun atmosphere to eat at. I had my kids and they loved the old time feel and I enjoyed the quaintness. The three meats that I focused on overall disappointed. The BBQ sauces were some of the best I have had and I particularly liked the “hot” bbq sauce because of its taste and lack of heat. On any family roadtrip where Natty Flat crosses your path, I’d give it a shot. It’s a fun place to stop if your expectations aren’t too high.

Colter’s BBQ in Downtown Dallas

I always remembered the name Colter’s, because I remember their TV commercials growing up. But I never actually ate at Colter’s until recently. When the family and I went to celebrate a cousin’s graduation, we decided to go to Colter’s and taste real Texas BBQ.

Well, it wasn’t quite “real BBQ” in the true sense of the word. That’s not to say that it was a bad experience, I just wasn’t overwhelmed. When we went we tried the beef brisket as well as an order of classic ribs and baby back ribs. I also snuck in a few bites of my friend’s pulled pork. Continue reading

Iron Works in Austin, Texas

People always used to tell me that I had an “iron stomach” because I have always liked a “challenge” when it comes to eating. I eat whole lobster, snow crab claws and whole fish. Whenever there’s an all you can eat challenge, I always win it. Well, the “Iron Stomach” (and his wife and son) went to the Iron Works in Austin back in November to get a taste of what was supposedly Austin’s best BBQ. I liked their message of “real BBQ” and they like to say they’re the Number #1 BBQ restaurant in Texas so I went in with big expectations.

Right off the bat it’s a very “country environment” here. It’s a bit restrained too…no “heart attack burgers” or giant 72-ounce steak “eat it all and get it free” deals. I ordered the sampler, while my wife and son split an order of baby back ribs. I wanted to try it all and I was not disappointed. I tried brisket, links and beef ribs with plenty of steaming hot sides. I really liked the links and the ribs were excellent. The only criticism I can think to say as that the brisket was a little dry. I sampled some chili and pinto beans and they were pretty good. Continue reading

Perini Steakhouse in Buffalo Gap Texas

Thanks Hunter for the great pictures of Perini Steakhouse in Buffalo Gap. We’re glad to hear you enjoyed your dinner there with friends and family. We try to stop in there everytime we head out to The Peartree Game Ranch to do some hunting. Delicious.

Bartley’s Barbecue, Grapevine, Texas

By husband calls me a “foodie”, as I am always on the lookout for the next great restaurant to try.  For a while, I was obsessed with all the food trucks popping up in Dallas, but then my tastes moved on to barbecue.  I was searching around the Internet for the top barbecue places in Texas, and Bartley’s Barbecue kept coming up.  It is in Grapevine, not that far away from where we lived, so I convinced my husband one Saturday and we were off to try it for ourselves.

I must say that the place isn’t impressive on the outside, but the smells inside will soon make you forget all about that.  The service is friendly, and the menu is vast for a barbecue place.  They had things like Cajun turkey, fried catfish and giant baked potatoes on the menu.  I went for the old stand bys, however, as I normally do my first time eating at a new place.  I tried the ribs, brisket, hot links and chicken.

BBQ Brisket and Football…Both Have Four Quarters

Today guys were going to break down the process of preparing a delicious brisket into four quarters for you. First I want to give a clear understanding why people BBQ and why it is considered an art form. For those of you that don’t know why people ever started slow cooking with a combination of heat and smoke……It was of necessity. If you look at what kind of meat we are using in BBQ you can figure out why it is such a challenge to cook good BBQ. You see meat is Muscle and Muscle is made up primarily of a two-part protein.

Capital Q BBQ in Galveston, Texas

I vacation in Galveston, Texas once a year and during my vacation I “cheat” on my diet. It’s a wonderful feeling after going most of the week eating salad and veggies (dripping in Cajun seasoning of course) So when I’m vacationing that means dessert and that means steak and sauce! Of course, Galveston is known for its seafood, but the last time I went, I was craving authentic Texas BBQ.

So i figured I’d try to get a free hat and submit this review to thetexasbbqguide.com, hint hint, I really like hats. First things first, the place was very crowded and it felt tight. I was actually afraid we were going to get turned away, or have to sit outside. I’m not a big fan of outside dinner parties. Sometimes when I have to sit outside the meat gets a few degrees colder and it can ruin the entire meal. Thankfully, we did get a good inside table. So no worries on temperature. Hot and yet edible, not too fiery. Continue reading

Mike Anderson’s BBQ – Dallas

I love BBQ and Texas. I recently was caught by surprise by a restaurant called Mike Anderson’s BBQ. I wasn’t sure what to expect going inside.

Who was Mike Anderson? I don’t know! I didn’t quite get it, but hey, this place has been in business since 1981, so I figured it had to be good to make it in Dallas. When I drove up to the restaurant, I noticed a long line outside. Much to my relief though, it wasn’t that long of a wait.

As soon as I entered, I felt welcomed. The whole restaurant is cafeteria style and everyone gets their own meats. Besides your favorite meets, you also get a “Goodie Bar”, which had a pretty mean salad, and some great sauces. Continue reading

The Salt Lick BBQ – Driftwood

I just have to start this off by saying that I had really high expectations for this restaurant.  I’ve seen it on the Food Network, all my co-works talk about it…it is everywhere.  When something is hyped up so much you pretty much know you are going to be disappointed, so I put off going for quite awhile.  I have never been more wrong in my life!  This is last-meal-ever kind of good. This is, I don’t care if I gain 20 pounds kind of good!  Trust me.

My boyfriend and I headed over there just last weekend.  One thing that I really disliked about the place is the super long wait.  We are talking hours here, so be sure you get there with plenty of time to spare.  The place is BYOB, which is good to know for next time, I’m sure a brew or two will make the wait seem shorter.  But as the saying goes, “hunger is the best sauce”, and this food was totally worth the wait.

Texas Pride BBQ—Adkins

I graduated from high school last year and decided that I wanted to take my best friends out for one last hurrah.  We wanted BBQ and we wanted it Texas style.  To be honest, I hadn’t really found much I liked in the greater San Antonio area, so I researched some of the best restaurants in town.  Texas Pride was one of the best-reviewed restaurants, so I figured I’d give them a shot.

We were a party of 12 and so we all settled on a huge order of the best meats available.  Two of my friends wanted pork ribs, and three other guys wanted brisket.  We couldn’t agree on anything, so the waitress convinced us to order the Texas Tailgater, which was a special menu made for big and carnivorous parties like us.  We started with three pounds of brisket, two pounds of sausage, two racks of ribs and one pound of turkey.

Angelo’s Barbecue – Fort Worth, Texas

You can’t ask for a barbecue recommendation while in Fort Worth without hearing the name Angelo’s.  After the millionth person told me just how good the barbecue is at this place, I finally caved in, convinced the wife, and drove out there for dinner.  It is located just outside of Fort Worth in a city called White Settlement.  I’m not sure what I was expecting, but when my wife and I pulled up I was at first a little put off I must admit.

The building is just sort of humdrum on the outside.  I almost drove right past it as it just blends in so much.  The parking lot, however, was packed (which is always a good sign) so we went ahead and pulled in.  The moment I opened my car door was when I first knew I shouldn’t be prejudging the place.  The smell of smoky meat was thick in the air, and let me tell you, it was a heavenly scent!  I wasted no time from then on out and quickly followed the scent inside. Continue reading

Woody Creek BBQ

Woody creek BBQ located on the west side of Fort Worth Texas and a location in Springtown about 40 miles west of down town Fort Worth serve traditional BBQ as well as some unique menu items for those that need to feel like they need a trend.

I’ll get right to it, when I go to new BBQ joint I look to make sure there are the traditional items that make a true BBQ place a BBQ place. While Woody Creek has Ribs, Brisket, Sausage, and Chicken, the Chicken breast is just Chicken breast. So no half Chickens or Chicken Quarters for you folks looking for traditional BBQ Chicken, this aint your joint. Continue reading

PGA Tour’s Hunter Haas favorite Fort Worth BBQ joints

Growing up in Fort Worth, TX it might be by default that one learns the Pleasures of Smoking BBQ and eating it on a regular basis. One early memory is of my mom picking up Cousins Pit BBQ for the whole family. This means gallons of tea, quarts of chopped and sliced brisket, and pints of various sides. To say a BBQ joint is the best in town is easy for some people to do. I tend to weigh out the positives of all my frequented established BBQ joints. Three great stops in Fort Worth are Angelo’s, Railhead, and Cousin’s, I should also mention the new player in town Hard8. My final score on Continue reading

Texas BBQ

Since Santa Anna had the Alamo surrounded Texans have been using native woods to fire Beef, Pork, Chicken and virtually everything with four legs other than their horses. What was first a necessity to survive grew into an art form called “Texas BBQ.” Oh you probably see places all over the Continue reading
