Just getting into this cult destination can feel like cause for celebration. After all, it’s ranked the third best barbecue joint (according to Texas Monthly) in the state. So as expected, you’ll most certainly encounter a line. And oh yeah, the place is only open from 10:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Thursdays, Fridays and the first Saturday of the month. But for those looking for smoked meat nirvana, this is the place. The pork ribs are massive, the smoked ribeyes are perfection, and the intensely marbled Akaushi beef brisket is the stuff barbecue dreams are made of. Other standouts include pastrami burnt ends (when they have them), and a signature sandwich called the Toddfather, made with a trifecta of brisket, pulled pork and hot link sausage. Don’t skip dessert, the crack cake is wicked.
