Re:Another Houston BBQ joint burns - Thelma's
Admittedly, I am not much of a sausage guy, though I have loosened up on that a bit over the years, and will grab a bite or two at Smitty's or Southside Market. Still, at no time in my immediate future am I going to make a decision on where to eat based on sausage alone. My rabbi would kill me.
There is no reason for any self-respecting BBQ joint anywhere not to be able to produce quality ribs; and no self-respecting BBQ joint in Texas not to be able to produce brisket. None.
If you'd had the meals I had at this branch of Luling City Market, you'd have begged me to take you back to our last visit to Arthur Bryant's - at least those fries were good!
