We had to stop for lunch at Kruez Market before we left town, and we weren't disappointed. I had the smoked BBQ ribs with potato salad and cole slaw. And of course an order of their awesome sausage to take back home.

The pork ribs were dry and chewy and the brisket was so so. I am giving it three stars merely because of its great reputation. I was disappointed in my experience and probably won't be back.

This is one of the top 2 bbq restaurants in Texas. Truly an institution. This bbq is so fantastic that not only do they not have nor offer bbq sauce, they don’t even have knives/forks. Don’t miss this place.

This place is massive. Kind of a different way of ordering. First, there is the meat section in the back. You order and pay there. Everything was good. The ribs and brisket are so so good. Then you go into the other section and order...More

I'd call. All seats are indoor. You can get your food and eat in the parking lot or a city park.

I used my Visa debit card there -- the one slightly odd thing I remember is that customers pay twice -- once for the meats, back in the smokehouse area, and once for the sides, drinks, etc in the dining area. But obviously... More
