People line up at 10:30 for the most mediocre ( or worse) barbecue around. The sausage is edible but the rest is not tasty, it's fatty, tasteless...I keep thinking I was there on their "off" day but I'm not getting up to make it Lexington on Saturday AM for lousy barbecue.

Arrived 7:30 with my wife, after an easy 1 hour drive from North Austin. 20 people in line for the 8 am opening. Friendly conversation with those in line. Helpful servers inside, simple but adequate grounds outside to eat. Bought $250 of BBQ which was well worth it. My ratings: Sausage - A+. Best I've had. Ever. Ribs - A+.... More

My husband and I drove 1 1/2 hours from New Braunfels just to eat again their melt-in-your mouth barbecue. The brisket is our favorite item, but the ribs are super good, too. Remember they are only open on Saturdays. Come early or call ahead to reserve your selections.

We visited in September for our anniversary celebration! We were glad to finally be able to visit Snow's BBQ! We love Central Texas bbq and this certainly was some of the best! It had been a dream of ours for a while to meet Mrs. Tootsie and eat some of her delicious bbq! While we weren't able to meet her,... More

Ate at six central TX bbq joints over three days. Snow's was very good and ranked third in our voting. Good ribs and brisket. Something special in potato salad made it excellent. Great small town atmosphere. About 45 minute wait time at 8:30am.

Get up early for a rare treat. When the foods gone the resturant closes. Authentic Country setting where neighbors are serving the guests. Best home cooking away from home. A day in the country It is a family outing.
