Dining Guide

Chuck’s Country Smoke House

Inside, a huge chalkboard menu covers the wall next to the register. The usual suspects are there along with a half dozen sandwich creations. Being so close to the border, there’s also some smoked boudin to be had. The Susie Q sandwich is denoted as the best seller, so of course we added one to our order. A hefty roll held a trio of chopped meats. Brisket, smoked boudin, and a cheap commercial sausage were fused together into a generously proportioned sandwich. The sausage, with a flavor dominated by fat and salt, is hard to enjoy on its own, but worked well as a sandwich binder.

    The food was wonderful. Some of the best BBQ I have had. I loved that everyone came and checked on us. It was great that you, Chuck, recognized your locals. Let me know when you want to open one in Fort Worth. Till then I will be happy coming by when I visit my in-laws.
