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.

webmaster's Review of Louie Mueller Barbecue

 MAIN FARE:Crew and spread at Louie Mueller's

  • Jalapeno Sausage - Loaded with jalapenos, fiery hot.    -- Double Boner
  • Jalapeno Sausage - Wow! Kind of non-traditional, but extremely lovely and tasty.    -- Eric Behrs
  • Jalapeno Sausage - Aroma and flavor of the jalapeno -- with the heat!  Wow, this is good, but HOT.  Definitely not for the timid.    -- Smoke Daddy
  • Sausage - Another winner, right texture & subtle flavoring    -- Double Boner
  • Sausage - Firm, but crumbly.  Very beefy; nice spice and heat on finish.  Good Sausage!    -- Smoke Daddy
  • Beef Shoulder - Very tender, nice smoked flavor, charred edges    -- Double Boner
  • Beef Shoulder - Firm, but tender - almost melting in your mouth.  Lean but with a bit of trimmed fat around the edges    -- Smoke Daddy
  • Ribs - Excellent, moist, good taste    -- Eric Behrs
  • Ribs - Peppery rub, but not overbearing (like in Elgin).  Tender and moist.  I got the short end of the rack, and the rib is still great!    -- Smoke Daddy
  • Pork Loin - Very nice, tender meat.  Lacks the visual punch that was evident at Black's.     -- Smoke Daddy

OTHER FARE: 

  • Sauce - Unique. Very thin and tangy.  Didn't need it for much except dippin bread slices.    -- Smoke Daddy
  • Cayenne Sauce - Sweet & sour with Paprika.  Good.    -- Smoke Daddy
  • Potato Salad - Strong version of mustard-style with relish.  Potatoes are broken into small pieces - YUM!    -- Smoke Daddy
  • Pinto Beans - Good, but a little to bland for my taste.    -- Smoke Daddy

ATMOSPHERE:

  • Great history to the building and barbecue    -- Smoke Daddy
  • If you like smoke, they've got it.  Everything is covered in it -- especially the cork board of business cards.   -- Double Boner
  • Stands the test of time - 103 degrees and no AC    -- Smoke Daddy
  • Shiner Bock on tap!   -- Double Boner
  • John Mueller (Grandson of Louie, Son of Bobby) gave us hell for bringing in spiral notebooks to jot down our thoughts.   -- Double Boner
  • Now this is a BBQ joint!    -- Eric Behrs
  • Equal to (Old) Kreuz; with T-Bone could surpass    -- Double Boner
