Smoke Daddy's Review of Betty Roses Little Brisket | "Show us your pits"

...saying that labor costs can be held down by not having it cooked slowly over a wood fire by a sullen man with a squint was like saying that a symphony orchestra would be cheaper without the violins.

Smoke Daddy's Review of Betty Roses Little Brisket

<<Update: This location has closed, but there are two open locations in Abilene.>>

My favorites here were the banana pudding (don't miss this), the potato salad, and the slaw.  

MAIN FARE:Betty Roses Spread

  • Brisket - Held in a pan of water, so it is warm and moist... although still a bit chewy.
  • Rib - Fall off the bone.  Also held in water?  Pork has a serious 'funk'... mine tastes like sardines.
  • Sausage - Commercial sausage... Hillshire Farms?  There is a trace of spice on the finish.

OTHER FARE:

  • Beans - Thin sauce, but good flavors.  Not mushy.
  • Potato Salad - Sour cream; shredded carrots; mostly mashed texture. Very good.
  • Slaw - Crunchy, sweet, & creamy.  Very good.
  • Sauce - Translucent & Tangy.
  • Banana Pudding - Homeade. Still warm... Delicious!

ATMOSPHERE:Betty Roses Pit

  • Converted gas station has good drive-up appeal
  • Small joint feel.  Friendly.
  • Smokehouse/Pit area adjacent to kitchen
  • First electric knife action on the tour
  • Relatively new management?
