I began last weekend in Gonzales, Texas where the first battle of the Texas Revolution took place! It's about an hour East of San Antonio. I didn't know if I should wager it but I took a gamble and ROCKED IT!
I came to Gonzales because of a write-up in Texas Highways on the Gonzales Food Market, serving great barbeque. They are most known for their ribs because they cook them in the oven after barbequeing the meat. It leaves the outside of the ribs CRUNCHY and man, oh, man is it good!
Upon entering the restaurant you see what appears to be a smart grocery mart on the left. It's where you pick up your bbq to go and then hit the chips, candy and soda aisles. But I decided to stay to the right of the counter and eat here.
I got the pork ribs. They had an abundance of choices for sides...I had a really hard time choosing! But I stayed true to bbq tradition and did the beans and chose corn for my veggie. The ribs had too much fat on it for my taste. I like my cut VERY LEAN but it was more expensive. Since I didn't plan on eating too much I figured I could just find the regular meat on these. The outside pieces were so delicious, with that extra crunch. Yummy! The people at the restaurant were very nice. When I sat down the tv was on the Michigan St game and was NOT on the UT game!! I asked the cashier and then the other eaters if I could change the channel and they all said "YES!" then helped find the channel. Lol it was fun to see that everyone kinda started talking to each other then about how the team was doing that day. Love that Texas friendliness!!
