Zimmerhanzel's Bar B Que - Smithville (CLOSED)


Zimmerhanzel's was very good on my most recent visit. I hit them as a part of a Luling/Lockhart trip. People say they sellout early but that doesn't matter to me as we arrived shortly after their 8:30 opening. It's an interesting place and I'll admit I was hesitant when I saw young girls cutting meat, but they knew what they were doing with that knife. 

The ribs were great, perfectly smoked. The all beef sausage provided a great companion to the ribs. My only complaint was that the brisket, though tasty, was a bit tough.

Address: 307 Royston St, Smithville, TX 78957
Hours: Permanently Closed

*All Grades Are Based Solely on the Quality of Texas BBQ Offered at the Joint. We Aren't Looking for Burgers or Catfish!

My Grading Scale:

A = This is some of the finest BBQ you'll find anywhere. It is worth a roadtrip in itself along with any required wait.
B = This is very good BBQ, even if it is over an hour away, consider making the drive.
C = This is just average BBQ but it's worth a stop in a pinch.
D = This is a poor example of Texas BBQ. Even if it's the only place around, skip it. Apologize to any non-Texans that have eaten here.
F = This is not only a bad Texas BBQ, it is probably not suitable for human consumption.
