Nathan’s BBQ

“The Chop,” a behemoth pork chop was cut almost an inch thick and the flavor was of grilled meat, much like Cooper’s, but there was more to it. The smell was reminiscent of the many charcoal burning barbecue joints in Memphis. Nathan’s uses oak lump charcoal from B&B along with a few sticks of pecan wood. But the ribs are the top priority here. The charcoal heat did wonders on the bark which was generously seasoned with salt and black pepper. As owner Nathan Winkleman said, “When the day is done my ribs are going to be right.”

    This is our favorite bbq place in Texas. The ribs are amazing! I also always get the sliced pork. We will drive 3 hours 1 way to eat at Nathans, it is that good. We have eaten at 1,000’s of bbq places, but this is the best!
