My favorite place. Love the brisket, sausage, and ribs!

Had the sliced brisket here today. Bet good flavor, a little dry but not too bad. Sauce is good. Have had the chopped brisket sandwich here before & it was good, too. I'd give the brisket 3.5 stars. Potato salad was ok, but texture was a little grainy and needed more flavor. Beans were good, but pretty bland. Even a little more black pepper would help. Overall 3 stars.

Brisket sandwich was really flavorful. Swamp Fries are good.

Dallas' equivalent of Lambert's Downtown BBQ. Got the Two Meat Que plate and selected fatty brisket and pork Ribs with side of collard greens. Brisket was solid; ribs hit the spot. Collard greens were really good; BBQ sauce quite good. Finished off meal with homemade ice cream. Overall pretty good BBQ but KC style BBQ won't ever top Texas style BBQ.

I had to meet a coworker in New Braunfels today. During the drive there I started thinking about BBQ. I convinced myself (though when it comes to BBQ, it doesn't take much convincing) that I had to have some brisket and sausage for lunch. Not just any BBQ would do, I wanted to try a place I had never had before. After a quick search on Yelp, I found CBQ with 4stars! I get out of the car and take a deep breath, first thing that comes to mind is "where's the smell of smoke". I decide the wind must be blowing the the smoke to the other side of the building. I continue inside, as I open the door I get it, the faint smell of smoke. I reassure myself with the 4 star rating. I see a "wait to be seated" sign and think what kind of TX BBQ joint is this. Shouldn't I walk up to the counter, order my brisket then carry a tray of juicy BBQ on butcher paper to the table and enjoy? Not here you don't! At the table I receive a menu and begin to make my decision. A two meat plate with moist brisket and tx sausage plus two sides. I remember reading a Yelp review about the creamy coleslaw and I saw burnt end BBQ beans menus on the menu. A few minutes later a plate is brought to my table. What's up with this brisket, it doesn't look right? The sausage looks good. Since when does diced pieces of brisket count as burnt ends? I remind myself, Don't judge a book by the cover, this place has 4 stars! Let's start with the sides. Burnt end BBQ beans - like I mentioned, the burnt ends are diced cubes of brisket with no flavor and how much sugar did you put in here? These beans are so sweet I cannot eat them. The creamy coleslaw - lots of shredded cabbage and a few shredded carrots with an entire tub of mayo doesn't make it coleslaw. I've had better coleslaw from a drive thru window. Time for the brisket - doesn't BBQ brisket have a smoke ring? What's up with the weird "bark" (I use that term loosely) it has more of a beef jerky texture and flavor to it. Did this brisket receive any smoke? If so was it wrapped in foil so the smoke couldn't reach the meat? Bill Miller's BBQ doesn't have anything to worry about when it comes to CBQ. They won't be taking any brisket business away. I'm a firm believer that if you need BBQ sauce on your brisket it wasn't cooked correctly..... so, where's the sauce? 3 choices of house made sauce. A basic sauce, a honey mustard, and a spicy. The waitress did mention that it was really spicy. I also read some Yelp reviews that it was made with ghost chilies and it was very very hot. I started with the basic - know wonder the BBQ beans were so sweet. This sauce has no smokey flavors only sweetness, I'll pass. Let's try the TX sausage - casing has a nice snap to it. Wow something that has flavor. I can eat this. It's actually a decent piece of sausage. You can see the pepper in it, wait, what's that I see? Is that a smoke ring? How is it possible for the sausage to have a smoke ring, but the brisket doesn't? I didn't bother asking where the sausage was made, but it was good. Now back to the brisket and sauce. Honey mustard sauce - again, how much honey is in here? This too is so sweet it's not enjoyable. I decide to stop with the brisket and sauce and just eat the sausage and a slice of white bread. If you find yourself standing in front of CBQ BBQ do yourself a favor. Go inside and order some sausage to go, then look across the street. Do you see the Bucee's gas station? Go over there and get you a brisket sandwich and enjoy. On my drive back home I wonder about that 4 star rating. I will not be returning to CBQ!!

We had the pork tacos a sliced and abolish sausage all great love my Angelo's

I ordered the ribs and 1/2 of the brisket. The ribs were very respectable. Nice rub with just the right amount of pepper. Very juicy & smoked just right. The brisket had a nice pink ring to it & were very juicy (I'm a fan of the juicy/fat camp - always more flavor. That's what I tell my cartoligist). Big bib is a top five for me. Looking forward to coming back.
