This is great BBQ. Lunch specials are a good price and plenty of food. Too full to try dessert, but they looked great. Staff very friendly. Nice atmosphere.

I like to visit a restaurant at least 3 times before I make my final review, and we have been to the Smokehouse 7 or 8 times in the past two months, and I can say that the BBQ there is consistantly excellent. We weren't crazy about the ribs, but the brisket is thick sliced and juicy, and sausage is... More

We stopped in for lunch and got a brisket sandwich and a sausage sandwich, and an order of creamed corn It was nice. It was around 2:30 in the afternoon, on Saturday, so we were able to order and get served right away. We both loved the brisket and the sausage sandwiches. The meat was moist and the sausage was...

We have been slowly working our way across the southwest in search of the best BBQ, trying to keep away from the "big names". Having read about the Smokehouse in an info brochure dated 2008, we thought we'd give this place a try. As we pulled into the parking lot, we noticed it was full of police vehicles... we're we...

Chopped beef brisket is a home run. Super tender, great fat/meat proportion, I could go on and on. There BBQ sauce goes well with everything - just the right amount of tang/sweetness. Pork ribs are really good too, but a bit less meaty than usual. There sausage is really awesome as well. I'd go back to this place in a... More

The cooks were super nice and gave fabulous greetings as we came in. It's very basic BBQ and pretty darn good. The brisket was definitely the best! Although I also enjoyed the ribs and chicken. The meals, with 2 sides, were about $12-$14 and worth that price.

I have always said Luling City Market was the gold standard of Texas BBQ. However, the Smokehouse may have replaced it. The BBQ brisket was excellent with just the right amount of seasoning. like many BBQ spots in Texas the restaurant is not fancy. Did not try any of the sides as I go for the meat only.
