If people leave your restaurant talking about how good your sauce is, you failed

Smoke Daddy's Review of Gonzales Food Market

Gonzales Spread

MAIN FARE:

  • Sausage: These links are beefy... made with just a little pork for good sausage flavor. Very nice!
  • Brisket: GREAT! Thick sliced pieces; smokey - mild; nice meat flavor.
  • Spare Rib: Smokey; great flavor. Meat is not pulling off the bone, but is tender & juicy. Salty.

OTHER FARE:Gonzales Welcome

  • Potato Salad - good.
  • Beans - these are stand-out good... even at closing time! Soft with good depth of flavor.
  • Lamb: Lamb ribs have a very gamey 'funk' to them... just not right.

ATMOSPHERE:

  • 3rd Generation; Richard Lopez has been here 43 years;Gonzales Pits
  • He stays open late to accomodate our late arrival, and provides a great tour of his place.
  • On the square in downtown Gonzales.
