Since you are in the area, I would recommend a ride up to Ouray for a nice soak in the natural hot springs on the north end of town. Besides the road is one of the best mtn. roads in the US.

That's one of my favorite stomping grounds. Been there a bunch. You'll have a ball . You'll wish you had your bike. Whether is iffy this time of year but I've done it earlier than this.

Just for you info. There is a nice place in Ouray called Box Canyon Lodge that has on-site hot tubs on the mtn. side. Great place to stay when in the area.

Mueller's 2nd time around

Went to Mueller's in Taylor on Thursday. I got there about 11:25, dropped my stuff at a table and was about 5th in line. By the time I got my food and paid my bill the line stretched to the door (20 or 30 people I guess). I had good timing. Way at the back of the line was JohnDavid, his son and his friend Gene (I hope I spelled/remembered this correctly). NEVER GO TO MUELLER'S EXPECTING TO GET IN AND OUT FAST. This ain't fast food people. They hand cut every order and the guy that does it is very nice (ie, doesn't sling the food at you). So it takes a little time to get through the line. My first visit I started just inside the door and it took 45 minutes.

As per usual the food was great and I had ordered way too much. I had the brisket (the lean end this visit), a beef rib, and 3 pork ribs.

The lean end brisket is really good. They ask when you order if you want the lean or moist end of the brisket. The rub used on the brisket and beef rib is a salt and pepper rub and they use a good amount. I like this, so I like the flavor. The sauce is a low viscosity type that is beefy and tomatoey at the same time. Because its thin, it doesn't drench the meat, but instead helps moisturize it. IMHO, excellent BBQ shouldn't need any sauce, so I favor this type of lite sauce over the heavy and sweeter "ketch-up" style sauces. I'd rate the lean end brisket a solid 8.

Beef ribs by their nature are a well marbled meat. With that rub and the bone in flavor I think beef ribs are my new favorite BBQ cut of meat. These were great and I'd give them a 9.

The pork ribs used a different rub, which is good cause the pepper rub would have overpowered them. They were good, but not great = 6 or 7.

I've eaten here twice and I've had a good visit each time. Its impressive.

City Market in Luling

I ate at the City Market in Luling today. Right by the door is a little parking spot that is too small for anything but a motorcycle, so I parked right in the front row and entered. It looks like a market when you walk in but go to the back and you go out another door to the pit part of the restaurant and order your meat. They only have 3 kinds of meat here: brisket, pork ribs, and sausage (called hot rings here). There are only 3 things on the menu, so can someone please tell me how it took this one women 5 minutes to order her food. Of course, she had to be on the phone during part of this time. Not only did she take forever, she also took that last of the brisket. Bitch!

So I got 3 pork ribs and two hot rings. For sides they also use the freedom from choice method again - Beans and potato salad. I'm generally a slaw man, but here I took what they had. I was thirsty and wanted some tea. The only tea they have is made with nutra-sweet and lemon. I put neither of these in my tea, so I passed and got a beer instead. The sauce is a little hot sauce type bottle of this orangish sauce. Because it was in a hot sauce bottle, it kept you from putting too much on. It was a subtle sauce that did enhance the meat's favor yet didn't overpower.

Well, If you can only do a few tricks, you better do them well. And they do here. The ribs were really the standout here. Perhaps a 7 or 8 on the scale. These are waaay above average and the most tender ribs I've had on this trip so far.

The sausage was also good. I seldom get or use the sausage as a indicator of a good BBQ place because its so easy to cook and so much of the flavor is dependent of the sausage maker - which is seldom the restaurant. So I'm not going to rate it here.

Once again, I had ok timing - while I missed the last of the brisket by 1 person, the line exploded while I was getting my beer.

Overall I'd rate this a good experience. I like it when restaurants branch out and offer something a little different. Here they didn't, but they covered the basics really well. If I was passing through Luling, I'd eat here again, but I don't know if I'd go too far out of my way for it.

Thanks Dahveed...great report I have ate City Market at Lulings but not Muellers and your rating is pretty close to my recollection of City Market when I was there. I was going to eat there again to refresh my recollection

A vote for Loco Coyote

I made my first trip to Loco Coyote today - I have to agree that the ribs are and OMG 9.5!!!! and the brisket melts in your mouth. LOTS of food and a great location. Awesome roads to and from this great little BBQ place nestled in the country. We were the only ADVers there - but everyone was super friendly. Not on the BBQ or Beer list - but the Blackberry cobbler was fabulous too. Definitely worthy of a return visit or two, or three.......

Photographic Evidence...

At Louie Mueller's in Taylor Texas. On the left is a beef rib, the right is the lean brisket. Far left (almost out of the pic) is a pork rib. Yum!
