That's my favorite thing about Texas, the barbecue.

dbarrow's Review of Big Smiths Bar-B-Q

  • Spare Rib: Not crazy about these, and I’m not sure why.
  • Hot Link: Very firm and spicy.
  • Beef Rib: Nicely done, good smoke flavor and very tender for a beef rib.
  • Pork Roast: Nice.
  • Sides: Mustard tater salad, but too whipped.
  • Sauce: Right out of the bottle, I’m guessing KC’s Masterpiece.
  • Brisket: Very tasty.
  • Atmosphere: This is a hodge podge place. They got BBQ chicken, fried steak and other stuff. Peanuts on the table and shells on the floor, and the waitress is a sweetie. Road Kill Helper by Betty Crocker – funny I don’t remember seeing that brand of Hamburger Helper at the local market. This place smells like grease instead of smoke. Dead animals and memorabilia everywhere.
  • Sausage: Great flavor, also very firm.
