Nestled in the heart of West Texas, along Route 90, lies a hidden culinary treasure: Smokehouse BBQ. The establishment, which has been garnering high praise on Google reviews, has built a loyal fan base with its hearty portions, prompt service, and authentic Texas-style barbecue.
Smokehouse BBQ operates primarily as a dine-in establishment, though they also offer convenient curbside pickup for those on the go. They are open for lunch and dinner from Thursday to Saturday, with additional lunch hours on Tuesday and Sunday. The restaurant does not provide delivery services and they operate on a cash-only basis.
The menu includes barbecue staples such as brisket, ribs, and sausage, all of which have received rave reviews from customers. Patrons have commended the “melt in your mouth fatty goodness” of the brisket, the “nice and juicy” sausage, and the ribs, which were highlighted as a crowd favorite. The establishment doesn’t just stop at delivering delicious meats; customers also get to enjoy a choice of two sides, bread, and a selection of sauces.
Although the restaurant offers limited seating, customers have reported a positive experience even when dining in larger groups. One reviewer mentioned that they were able to accommodate a group of six, despite the limited space.
Despite its location in “middle of nowhere, Texas,” as one reviewer charmingly put it, Smokehouse BBQ has made its mark with high-quality food and friendly staff. The owner has been commended for their generosity, with one customer sharing how they were allowed to dine in, despite arriving just 20 minutes before closing time.
In addition to its delicious food, customers can also look forward to excellent service. Reviewers frequently mention the friendly and efficient staff, adding to the overall appeal of this hidden gem.
For those planning a visit, take note of the nearby amenities. As one reviewer suggested, you can conveniently “fill-up” at the neighboring gas station, use the facilities, and grab some pulled pork sandwiches for your journey.
Despite its no-frills setting, Smokehouse BBQ delivers where it matters most: the food. So whether you’re passing through Alpine or a local, be sure to stop by for a taste of their “superb BBQ.”
