Angelo’s: nothing compares to this mess hall of the finest BBQ in the world! ($$)
Fearing’s: at the Ritz; cool place; amazing food with an aggressive Southwestern influence ($$$$)
Del Frisco’s Double Eagle Steak House: while the other locations suck, the original still rocks; great steaks, amazing hash browns, and the opportunity to buy a drinking license ($$$$)
Mi Cocina: there are a few of these around town and the authentic TexMex is fresh and wonderful! ($$)
Luling City Market: tucked away in a strip mall north of town, this place dishes up some awesome ribs and my favorite Texas BBQ sauce ($$)
Goode Company BBQ: It’s a chain now, but when I went to the original the smoked duck was delicious ($$)
I’m planning a long weekend of epicurean extremism and this is what is on my radar:
John Mueller Meat Co.
