Took a trip to SA with my wife in March and hit City Market in Luling on the way there - and Smitty's on the way home.
City Market was a disappointment. Brisket from the point tasted like roast beef - dry and not very tender. Ribs were fantastic. Sausage just average.
Smitty's was a bit better but still disappointing. Brisket was fair, ribs were fair, sausage was better than City Market but still what I would call average.
I have been to Black's before and they are worth the trip in my opinion. Brisket was excellent, ribs were very good, and their sausage was very good - I especially liked the shiner bock sausage.
I still plan to try Kreuz - but so far, Black's is the best in town for me.
