At the Texas Smokehouse BBQ, it tasted like a real BBQ, which means the meat is cooked a certain way (at least to me, and I am from the South) and it's got to have an element of smoke or outdoor grill to it!
Here there is no valet parking, servers/waiters, reserved seating, or pretentiousness.
Nope, 2 parking spaces, 3 tables, and a fan outside to keep the 'smoke' from filling up the main restaurant area through the screen door. Just the type 'Hole-n-Wall' place I love to check out.
Being in California this Texas BBQ place reminds me of back home...in Alabama. So until I make it back home to visit in 'Sweet Home Alabama' I'll be stopping by to order, or call ahead to pick up my BBQ from here & any of the 'Down Home' style sides (that is, unless I am having/cooking my own BBQ).
You order you pay at the register, they are polite, and you WAIT if someone calls in order...they can only do so many things at once. AND YES you are going to smell like smoke/a smoker if you are there for a while eating or waiting for your food.
