Every joint, from the best to the worst, seems to have people who think the food served there is the very best. Even bad barbecue is somebody's favorite.

crosen's Review of Sonny Bryans Smokehouse

  • Brisket: Very tender, great flavor, nice marbling.
  • Spare Rib: Also tender, little extra fat, okay seasoning
  • Sausage: Very ordinary. Tastes like Bryan Sausage.
  • Atmosphere: It looks like the building could crater in a good storm. Grade school bench seats are a nice touch. Christmas lights could be a fire hazard. Old, dusty neon beer signs are great. ZZ Top was playing over the speakers and enhanced the eating enjoyment.
  • Sauce: Spicy, hickory, pasty consistency
  • Atmosphere: Head Pit Boss is scruffy, gray, big mustache dude. Very Friendly.
  • Atmosphere: test123
  • Overall: Great Dive for a lunch stop, but the sausage was disappointing. School chairs were hilarious.
