Open M-Sat 11-6

Texas-style hospitality is the hallmark of this long-standing establishment (est. 1974). Unfortunately, Texas-style smoked meats are not their strong suite. In fact, I would characterize Little Bob’s as southern-style comfort food rather than barbecue. Some of the sides and the tea reminded me strongly of my time in Alabama. The brisket was tender but with little flavor. The ribs were over done before having been wrapped in foil and set on the steam table. Not a pleasing combination. We also sampled the hot-links. I’m not sure of the origin of these, but they were more akin to specialty frank than a real sausage. Fine smoked meats can’t be found. If you are looking for some comfort food that reminds you of your youth in Dixie, this is the place.

Each joint is judged on the essence of Texas 'cue...sliced brisket and pork ribs. Sausage is only considered if house made. Sauce is good, but good meat needs no adornment to satisfy. Each review can only be based on specific cuts of meat on that particular day. Finally, if the place fries up catfish or serves a caesar salad, then chances are they aren't paying enough attention to the pits, so we mostly steered clear.
