There’s a lot to like about this place starting with a great looking interior that sets the stage for some great BBQ. The rustic/down-home feel is everywhere — from the picket fence to the wooden picnic tables to the old license plates hanging up everywhere. And, in case you didn’t know the owner is from Texas, you will after seeing all the Texas gear and longhorn symbols (as well as an A&M flag) on the walls.
In the center of the room is a stack of wood that they use to smoke their BBQ. If you look into the open kitchen you’ll see the smoker at work. The barbecue it produces is some of the better stuff in the valley. The brisket, in particular, is exceptional. Charred edges, a noticeable smoke ring that’s also apparent upon tasting it, and tender enough to cut with a plastic spoon. It shouldn’t be missed. Baby back ribs are dry rubbed and smoked and have a fantastic bark coating the exterior of the fall-off-the-bone meat. The pulled pork is solid, too. Although I needed to drizzle some sauce on it. Their sauce has a mild kick that will linger in the back of your palate. The corn bread was only ok, and the creamed corn wasn’t as thick as I prefer, but still decent.
With Big B’s and Bell’s BBQ, Henderson has some tasty options when you’re craving BBQ.
