Luling City Market! Best damn BBQ in the world.

Buy it by the pound and it is served on wax paper. Inexpensive and filling. The carnivore in you comes out.

It is smoked for hours and hours in an old grocery store in the middle of downtown Luling. For years the BBQ was the sideline business to the store. It is now reversed. The BBQ is why people come. My sister drives all the way from Austin to buy it.

There is another one in Houston but there is some sort of problem between the two sets of owners and they are completely separate entities. The food at the one in Houston is Good, reaaly good, but it lacks the character and atmosphere of the original.

Favorite Dish: Smoked Elgin Sausage with pickles, onions, and longhorn cheese. Wash it down with a cold Shiner Bock beer and you done died and gone to heaven.

Address: 633 Davis Street Luling, Tx. 78648
