Was here on Thursday as part of the Lockhart tour and would have to say I was a bit disappointed. I have been here before and enjoyed the food, today the moist brisket was dry and with little flavor. The sausage was a disappointment also. I am sure everyone is entitled to an off day
I don't know what happened... we went through on a Sunday a few weeks back. walking in is a treat because you are literally right next to the fire and you will definitely leave smelling heavenly! however, the meat was a different story. we got brisket and ribs and although moist, there was no real flavor of any kind. we also tried the prime rib, but again, no flavor. we had.l just been to Black's, which was amazing, so this was kind of a disappointment. we'll try again, everyone has their days...
Love this place, sausage is perfect as the old nostalgic feel to the place is something that I can't get enough of!
One of the top five barbecue places in Texas
Excellent brisket, flavorful and great tenderness.
Great smoke ring on the brisket Andre sausage is the B O M B!
Sausage is the best I have ever had, I bought $100 worth to take home, brisket and ribs are marginal, the wistful value of the smoke pits is out of this world.
Is it possible for Smitty's to keep getting better? The ribs are amazing!!!!!
Fire is hypnotic. Staring into it can be mesmerizing and may even alter your state of mind. Take the fire at Smitty’s Market for example. Just inside the back door, which is really the primary entrance, an open fire is the first thing you encounter. The flames lick their way beyond the edge of a towering brick wall. Beyond the wall, the space opens up into a large room with meat-filled brick pits. At a…
Smitty’s is just too good to dock it a star based on one mediocre visit, but this last one wasn’t up to the level I’m used to at Smitty’s. [After some poignant review of the last few visits, I must reconsider the high rating of five stars. Of four visits, three have been mediocre, including the last two. This is not a streak worthy of such a high rating.] While the sausage was well smoked…
Something about watching a man in a grease stained white jacket and a large knife portioning out my lunch, makes me crave it even more with every slice. Service is curt and efficient at this Lockhart legend, but the only niceties I need were piled on that butcher paper. An order of fatty brisket, lean shoulder clod, ribs, sausage and a large pork chop were tantalizing atop the greasy butcher paper. The sweet glaze on…
Don’t bother going in the front door. You’ll end up in the parking lot behind the boxy brick building anyway, doing the Smitty’s shuffle: At peak hours, the lines invariably stretch out the back door. Patiently, you inch your way forward, passing the waist-high brick pits and perusing the list of post oak–smoked meats (brisket, pork ribs and chops, shoulder clod, sausage, prime rib). Salivating, you finally place your order for a pound or so…
