When you're driving around, dont forget to keep your eyes open. You never know when you might happen upon a shade-tree barbecue stand or a little shack that nobody's ever heard of -- with the best smoked meat in creation.

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.
