Smitty's has been on my annual BBQ run to TX for about 8 years now. Always good, and some different cuts than you find elsewhere. They offer a smoked pork shoulder that is excellent. The Brisket is classic TX, don't ruin the salt, pepper and...More

Even if you aren't a huge barbecue fan, Smitty's is worth the stop. It is a neat place that takes you many decades back in time. My wife was not a fan of waiting in line right next to the smokey barbecue pits but I...More
