Get there early for lunch as they sell out every day. Worth the wait if you aren't on a time restriction but forget it if you aren't there by 11:30. The Brisket is truly special.

Not only are the ribs, brisket, sausage excellent, the sides are great as well. We recently tried City Market in Luling who some say has the best barbecue in Texas. It didn't even hold a candle to Corkscrew BBQ. By the way, it has moved...More

Excellent BBQ though the line can be a tad long, and don't get there too late or they WILL be out of your favorite meats.
