Prause's is a meat market that "also" makes barbeque -- although that is the big draw. No frills -- paper plates, and picnic tables to sit at, but the barbecue is "to die for" -- its fun to stand in line at about 11:00 a.m....More

The brisket is quality beef, cooked very good and has a very good taste. I like mine to have a little more smoke flavor but I was not disappointed at all. The sausage is freaking awesome. The service and atmosphere is true to Texas! In...More

Like a lot of old time Texas meat markets, they cook barbecue for lunch. Better get there before 12:30 as they typically sell out. Don't expect anything fancy or hokey decor because there ain't any. You walk up to the counter, order, and then take...More

The sausages are the greatest. We will go there and buy 10 links and bring the 2 hour drive home and enjoy. Such a pleasant place to shop for meat.

This is an old time real Texas BBQ place where the emphasis is on the meat. The building is tired and old and the facilities simple. The BBQ is top notch and its a fun place to go.

This is purely a meat market but you can eat in. Pretty awful lighting and atmosphere. Do not order any of the carton potato salads or cole slaw unless you are positive it is not post date and kept cold. We both had stomach issues...More

The real deal. These German/Czech meat markets are where Texas Barbecue truly began, from Houston to San Antonio to Waco and to Dallas. German butchers who smoked sausage and pork... and beef. As a kid in the 1950s, even the local small independent grocery store...More

We had sausage and beef and it was very tasty. The mustard potato salad was delish! They make a sauce with vinegar and hot chili pequines. It is spicy but didn't like it as much as the regular sauce.

Prause Market is not what you would expect from a barbeque place. First, it is a meat market with locally grown meat. Second, you order the amount/kind of barbeque you want and they give you bread to make your own sandwich. Third, it sells out...More
