It is fantastic bbq. I've only been once and it might have been the best rib I've ever had. I've said that before with other places only to go back and it not be nearly as good. Once I go again they may jump into my top 5.

One of my favorites was Nonmacher's in Katy, but they have recently closed after being in service for 30 or so years. I do have to say, for being a sorta fast-food bbq place, rudys is pretty good, as well as Buccees.

Iíve had Flores 4 times

It is definitely good but half the time I drive by they are closed. It is not better than Hutchins

They have excellent pickles

Best I have had were Snow's in Lexington and Austin's BBQ from Eagle Lake. Down south of SA the better ones are The Market and Partners in Karnes City and then MCMillans from Fannin.

1)Lums in Junction Texas. Love, love, love me some Lums. Mom and pop shop they know BBQ and I love the feeling of old time Country stores and beer, beer of course.

2) Salt Lick in Driftwood-some say over rated. I liked it not my favorite but I will be back. Open pit is attracting.

3) Moonlite BBQ in Owensboro KY-my in laws live there. I like goat and they are huge on mouton/sheep. Good stuff and one hell of a all you can eat buffet. Good stuff

4) Coopers in Llano-not bad, not out of this world, A few times I had been in there they had Cabrito, love me some goat meat on the pit.

5)Macs- in Midland and Lubbock, formerly in Eden. Co owner is Josh Abbott. Not great BBQ by any stretch of the imagination. Personally I like the beer and live music. My ladies think it's good. Meh, over hyped, imo

6)Coopers in Junction Texas- absolute insulting name to the Cooper BBQ dynasty. Dog couldn't chew thru that crap. Nasty pathetic so called BBQ. Someone needs to kick this guy in the nads and get him off the block. Nasty stuff.

7) KDs in Midland-close runner up to Coopers in Junction Texas.

Last 2 times I have been to Rudy's I was extremely disappointed. Brisket was dry and had no smoke flavor and the chicken was also very bland.

If you are ever in the neighborhood of Paris, TX you have to stop at Scholls Bros BBQ. Small family run BBQ joint that has never left me disappointed. I planned my east texas work trips around lunch or dinner so I could hit Scholls when in the area. They have a big sign inside that reads, "you don't need teeth to eat our beef". I would attest that to be accurate.

I really enjoy the ribs at The Coutry Tavern outside of Kilgore, TX. Probably my #1 bbq joint.

This, hands down correct. Horrible.
I dont know about bill millers.


Bill millers is to bbq what mcdonalds or Whataburger is to the hamburger world. It is fast food, it shouldn't be on this list. The sides at most of the places on the list cost as much as a meal at bill millers.

For a quick lunch stop or something on the way to the ranch after work I like it and will most of the time pick it over a burger etc. but it isn't and isn't intended to compete with the kraft bbq places around texas and hate it when people knock it like it is.


Yes sir, this.

Any Bill Miller's


The best Mikesaka's is in El Campo, however it tastes better when they are catering an event opposed to eating it on site.

Rudy's is the only one out here that can make descent Barbecue.
Their sides are second to non, green bean salad, green chile stew man o man!
Their regular sauce is good on their breakfast tacos as well which I'd
put up against anyone's brisket and egg tacos.

Since some of yall have mentioned the Hard 8 bbq, they were recently on an episode of Man, Fire, Food. I found it pretty interesting that he doesn't season his briskets until he wraps them in foil. In fact I have never heard of anyone putting a brisket on naked and then season later.

Flores in Whitney is definitely top of the list. Pecan Lodge is pretty food and I like Hutchins as well. Being as we are not far from Whitney, that's normally our go to spot.

Marshall's in Farmers Branch has been using the same smokers since 1975. Always good and consistent. The other Marshall's not as good.

We tried going to Saltlick yesterday but hour wait in humid sticky weather wasn't going to work so went to Railroad BBQ in Dripping Springs. Beats the heck out of any Rudys. It was pretty good. They were out of ribs though and only 1:30. Brisket and sausage and sides were great. Sauce was for pork apparantly but didn't have any to try it on. We went through 4 lbs of meat and had to get more.
