Yes, I agree that...burp...Angelos in FoatWuth is great, but so is the BBQ at Clark's Outpost up in Tioga (Home of Gene Autry) Texas! Dean Fearing, head chef at The Mansion on Turtle Creek, once said that he didn't understand barbeque until he ate it at Clark's Outpost. It's a purty fur piece to drive from Plano, but I never lack for takers when I say let's go to Tioga! And trust me it's the ONLY reason to go to Tioga.[:D] Eric The(CourseMyBrotherMakesAPrettyGoodBrisket,To­o)Hun[>]:)]

I've heard the same thing about the place in Tioga. That must be some good shit cause Ive heard it from several different people. I don't really care for brisket, I want some RIBS!

They got 'em at Clark's Outpost. And quail as appetizers! I hate to even mention it 'cause of all the...er...others, but they are the ONLY joint I know that has 'Mountain Oysters' on the menu! Not that there's anything wrong with that![:D] Eric The(It'sJustI'mNotCoolWithThat!)Hun[>]:)]

Yep, that is the proper pro-nun-c-a-tion of my fav-or-ite town. AKA "Cowtown" !!!

Guess I'll have to head over there pretty soon. Not too many places serve quail either, which I really enjoy. I did have some at Nick & Sams in Dallas not too long ago though. That place has some great steaks too. Michael

Could it possibly be 'County Line Barbecue'? There's one on the Lake that I go to, it's the best I think in Austin.

Kreuz in Lockart, Texas and Cooper's in Round Rock & Llano. County Line??? Nice restaurant, but best BBQ? No way!
Link Posted: 8/18/2001 8:24:33 PM EST
I'll 2nd that for Clarks. There is another place just a little bit north on there on hwy 377 in Sandusky that aint bad either. I like Sonny Bryants but wont go there because most of them post no CCW signs. BoneDaddys in Richardson is pretty good too. The scenery of the wait staf makes up for anything the BBQ might lack. [:P]

There's a BBq place in Taylor, can't think of the name, a block down from Rudy's that has THE BEST IN TEXAS, plus it's one of the cheapest BBQ prices around, (BUT if you want sausage, you gotta go to Southide Market in Elgin) KenS

I seem to recall Black's, just South of San Marcos, what's the place in Hempstead right on the 290? Then there is the place on Kirby just south of the 59 in Houston. Been 10 years since I left Houston and Texas, already forgetting the names of the best places to eat BBQ, but I could still drive there!
Link Posted: 8/19/2001 12:36:54 AM EST
Rudy's, which has stores in Austin and San Antonio, Round Rock and New Braunfels has the best brisket, ever. For overall "good barbecue," the Salt Lick in Buda ain't bad either. Wherever you visit in Texas, there is always a good barbecue joint within a ten minute drive. I think it is in the state constitution. God Bless Texas.

Dood, you need to try something different, Rudy's uses the worst meat I've ever eaten. AND, He does advertise "the worst BBQ it TX, and he's right. If you ever get a chance, in Taylor, almost on the corner of 95 and 79, IS THE BEST. last time I went to Rudys, I [puke] Kens

How can this ever be determined? While traveling through Texas last month about every restaurant I passed was advertising "The Best Barbeque in Texas". From the state that brought you "Whataburger", I have to question their claims.

Eric, The Crossroads is the area in the middle of the 4 larger cities in Texas namely: Houston; San Antonio; Austin; and Corpus Christi. I was referring to the place in Victoria, TX called [b]Brother's BBQ[/b]. As I have said, if you happen to be in the area on a Saturday, shoot me an email.

You can't get decent BBQ in the city. Come on out to the Big Bend Region of West Texas. This is ranching land, and it is not done better anywhere else... Try Shotgun Grill in Alpine, TX.....mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm

There's a drive-in BBQ joint in the old part of Wichita Falls called P2, or the Deuce to the locals. You pull in and open your windows, the waitress takes your order and brings your sliced brisket sammy, fried okra and cold Coors Light to your truck, and you eat right there in the driver's seat. You see police cars and mail trucks in there from time to time. They have a bar inside where you can eat, but for the real P2 experience, you gotta eat behind the wheel. Jarhead out.

I vote for Outlaw's BBQ in Wylie, although Clark's in Tioga is definitely worth the trip. I had to try the Mountain Oysters as my wife challanged my manhood! A few (5 or 6) years ago, they built a Rudy's (worst BBQ in Texas) in Dallas. I gave them 2 chances a couple of months apart. They had the worst BBQ I've ever eaten. They were gone about 6 months later, so someone else must have thought so too! Edited causin' I can't spel.
Link Posted: 8/20/2001 8:53:31 AM EST
OK, "Texas" BBQ now... Angelo's is God's Own BBQ Joint. A little out-of-the-way joint is Inmon's in either Lampasas or Burnet. Inmon's has beef brisket, T-bones, thick pork chops, chicken, venison, turkey and more cooking at the same time. You get a tray covered with butcher paper, pick out you own BBQ, cover the tray with as much meat as you can stand and pay for it by the pound. Beans and bread are on the table. It's a guy thing. And don't forget iced-tea, the House Wine of the South.

Yo, ChuckT, what is it about Dallas that you can't get good BBQ here? Thank goodness I didn't waste a meal at Rudy's. And Sonny Bryan's? Please! Third rate roast beef covered by the WORST excuse for BBQ sauce known to man. Tho' lots of folks swear by that place, I say they never enjoyed real BBQ. I gladly drive 60 miles to Fort Worth to eat BBQ at Angelo's and steak at Reata.

ARock, are you sure you were not at Coopers in Llano? Thats how they do it there and it is GOOD! They cut their pork chops the thickest I've ever seen. The food is very good but it's also just cool to be served that way. Damn, after thinking about that now I have to drive 5 and a half hours just to eat lunch!

03shooter, YOU GOT IT! Llano! Couldn't remember the exact town. Used to blow thru there on my WideGlide chop. Turned west off 281 at Burnet just to eat at the joint. Been three or so years. The place is an old drive-in on the South side of the road. Smokers are under the awning right outside the front door. You just open them till you find what you want. Has the name changed? Gotta know. It's a legend.
Link Posted: 8/20/2001 6:32:24 PM EST
Arock, the name is still the same and the smokers are still there! Just tell them what you want and if you want sauce on it they dip it in the big pot right there on the smoker by the door. Let's go!!!
