Were I to recommend Louie Mueller's to a stranger, I would tell him it is a Texas tradition.  It's as Texas as the State Capitol... You need to go there even if you are a vegetarian.

Smoke Daddy's Review of Carters Station

Joint: 

UPDATE: <<Charles Carter passed away in 2011, and Carter's Station has closed it's doors>>

Roadhouse that happens to serve some food (including a bit of bbq).  I can recommend the "Texas Toothpicks" sausage sandwich... and help yourself to some pinto beans from the crock pot.

MAIN FARE:Carter Station Sausage

  • Only BBQ options are chopped sandwich or sausage sandwich, so we order both
  • Chopped Brisket - Is tough.  Microwave reheat didn't help.
  • Sausage - Salty, with a nice spice on this finish.  Yummy.  This stuff was even good after being microwaved!

OTHER FARE:

  • Beans - Soft pintos with a little spice on finish.  Served in a crock pot... help yourself.
  • Texas Toothpicks - Fried strips of jalapeno and onions.  Probably a frozen product, but hot & crips and very good.
  • Sauce - From a bottle?

ATMOSPHERE:Carter Station Pit

  • "Joint" drive-up appeal
  • Parking lot is covered with bottle caps
  • Roadhouse - Reminds me of a cross between Country Tavern and Big Smith's.
  • Bar first; food a distant second
  • BBQ meats are micro-warmed 
  • Would like to visit on Fri or Sat night!
