Had the pleasure of visiting this place with a wonderful group of friends. OMG - the food was wonderful!! I am not a sausage eater but I would recommend the sausage very highly! Most definitely this is a hidden treasure in Luling, Texas!

Been eating here as long as I can remember for my 61 years and have never been disappointed . Sausage is still my favorite with ribs a close second. Brisket rocks too. Bare bones food they way it should be. Only take cash but there is an ATM by the pit room. Beans sold in front are good and potato... More

Visited here based on recommendations and I'm very pleased we did!! Pork ribs and beef brisket were truly fabulous!! We tried to go on our journey from Houston to San Antonio but it closes at 6pm so we'd missed it. Glad we made sure we got it on our way back!!

Now I'm a gal who was raised on her Daddy's BBQ so this isn't something that I normally eat out. However, we are always on the hunt for items on our bucket list and some good BBQ was on my husbands list. The place was packed and the line was long but once we got to the pits, the staff... More

We were there on a Saturday and the line was forming, ultimately stringing around the dining room in this popular BBQ shack serving just as they have for decades. I rated the brisket, ribs and sausage as good to very good, but some of my eating companions rated it their favorite. I didn't think the brisket was smoky enough, and... More

Awesome barbecue! Brisket, ribs, sausage and so much more. Meat eaters delight. A few side orders available. Bring cash- only payment accepted.

Hands down the BEST BBQ I've ever eaten in my life. OMG if you're ever in San Antonio this place is well worth the drive.

I would drive to Luling again JUST for the BBQ!!! City Market didn't disappoint with their flavorful BBQ and the sides are equally amazing! Make sure to bring cash since credit cards are not accepted.

After joining the line out the door we wondered if we had made the right decision coming here and joining the que. Well slightly after an hour from joining the first rib was being devoured. Well worth the line up. Not that it felt too bad as it was constantly moving. Ribs were moist n a touch sticky, just right... More
