I stop in here on way back from NE TX to Austin. Great brisket. Just right amount of smoke and tenderness. You will almost always see Kirby in back slicing brisket. You know you are in a place that wants you to taste most flavorful cut when they charge more for lean cut than moist.
Their beef sausage is fantastic. Brisket is not too bad either.
I really like the flavor and moistness of the brisket here. Sauce is also great.
For some reason the location on the hill does not quite match the food quality on the 2222 lake location.
Spare ribs were good.
First time and the slaw is AWSOME!
Arrived hungry, left with a hand cart (actually 2 lbs. of brisket & 2 lbs of pulled pork...maybe to share with my friends back home. "This is what real barbecue is!') While I was picking up my order I woofed down the pulled pork sandwich. Each bite was moist & smoked to perfection. I also had the smoked collard greens...I wish they sold these in the grocery store. The greens were done just right. Not over cooked to soggy mush, but with a slight crunch with a little pulled pork to boot. I'll be sure to visit when I'm back. I love this place.
Excellent brisket, flavorful and great tenderness.
Good bbq. Nice side dishes. Friendly staff.
good thing the meat is superb, because I'm not a fan of the sauce
Pork ribs are superb. Brisket was a little dry. Ribs don't need sauce which is a good thing because the sauce isn't good. Lockhart slaw has a kick and is ok. Bbq beans are fair. Overall pretty good. Glad I came but won't make any special trips back.
Rudys BBQ seems to be the most consistent BBQ in Waco. Moist brisket and sausage is always good. Several places to eat BBQ in Waco but always hit or miss.
Best q in ft worth had a sliced and a polish sausage both great
Average east Texas brisket. Nothing special. Maybe the 2nd or 3rd best in T town. The chicken sandwich is their best offering.
According to Google on 3/21/15, this place is permanently closed
Last sliced brisket sandwich of the day! Great timing - great BBQ!
Decent brisket and ribs. The sausage needed a sauce. Overall good experience.
Been here a few times. Love the brisket, ribs, stuffed peppers, & the atmosphere
Great smoke ring on the brisket Andre sausage is the B O M B!
Picked a sliced sandwich. Wish they didn't trim my brisket. I would prefer a little more smokey flavor. The people are great!
Stopped at the #Hickory Stick. Sliced brisket sandwich has a nice texture. Personally would prefer they didn't trim the crust off of the brisket. Great people!
Not impressed, brisket gasket like roast beef with little to no smoke flavor. Sausage had some heat but no real flavor..
Fabulous. My first trip. It is as good as advertised. The brisket was extremely moist. The bark should be sold as a separate item it was so good. Ribs were thick and perfect. Pulled pork sandwich was also very good. Got here just as it opened. Cried built up quickly. Service was outstanding for such volume.
@toddthetexan: @PecanLodge Had the brisket, unmatched! Great smoke! Collard greens amazing, sausage had a great flavor and nice snap
Ft worth locale pound of ham and sausage for dinner fair food it's dickeys
Excellent brisket and ribs. Smokey flavor. Very tender. Melts in your mouth
Pound of ribs and a salami sandwich fantastic
Had Brisket and sausage. Both very good. Moist and smokey flavor for brisket. Sausage was good. Mildly flavored.
Reason it's one of the top ranked BBQ joints in Texas. Only problem is that parking is a little wanky. There is a free lot west 2blocks.
