Food should be fun.

ssweeney's Review of Lufkin Bar-B-Q

Joint: 

Main Fare:

  • Brisket - Finally, somebody using a dry rub.  Lean, flavorful, and accordian tender.
  • Rib is very smokey and fully rendered.  Nice flavor and texture.  Crisp/chewy on exterior, and moist and tender inside.
  • Sausage has a similar taste to homeade bologna or salami.

Other Fare:

  • Potato salad is mashed style with black pepper.  Different flavor profile working here, and it is good.
  • Pintos are sweet and good.  Another interesting flavor profile.
  • Raisin and Apple fried pies are good and homeade, but would be better if combined.
  • Pecan pie is very good, but not made here.

Atmosphere:

  • Knotty pine interior with western motif.
  • Another group of very nice people in East Texas.
  • They are doing bang-up business on their Drive Thru
  • Real "old school" pits that are fired by a compact, clean fire.  Nice.
