Post Mountain BBQ

IMG_8160 (800x600)

So I had read a bunch of reviews for the best BBQ in Burnet, Texas and Post Mountain BBQ kept coming out ahead. I though I had seen it had been around for a long time, but when I asked they said only since 1997. Oh well. It’s a charming place inside with seating in and outdoors.

I did find it a little odd they didn’t offer chicken, but who knows maybe because they are a small town they don’t get a ton of options or they just rotate their menu around depending on what room they have on the pit. We ordered the 3 meat combo $14.49 that comes with 2 sides and we also got a slice of Pecan Pie $4.99.

The turkey had a nice smoke flavor, the brisket was really dry and the sausage was really good. I think the best part was their BBQ sauce. I probably would have drank it if there wasn’t anyone else around us. The pecan pie was just ok.

Don’t think I would stop back in but it’s not the worst we have ever had.

BRC GastroPub

I had been talking to a friend of mine about trying out a new place for brunch and we ended up settling on BRC. For those of you wondering what it stands for it’s a big red cock (as in rooster). You can’t miss this place there’s a huge rooster in the parking lot.

D is obsessed with onion rings $6.50 and normally while I fuss at him because we are so full after that and our meal, I have to admit they had a fantastic spicy mayo sauce to dip them in. This time he won and got praise for ordering them.

D ordered the Infamous Coop Style Burger $13.75 (chopped n’ griddled with jalapeno, onion, bacon, potatoes, chile con queso, 2 fried eggs). He honestly thought it was a burger, so just a heads up it’s not haha. He said it was good, but next time he would try something else.

I ordered the Fried Chicken Biscuits & Eggs $16 (Cheddar, cream gravy, sweet jalapeno, bacon jam, crispy fries). They are known for their bacon jam and biscuits so I figure this one would be a winner and it was. OMG the bacon jam is delish!! I ended up eating only half of one of the sandwiches because the portions are so huge and took the rest home for 2 more meals! I would order this again in a heart beat.

I would love to go back. The brunch is a little pricey, but you get nice huge portions so it’s worth while if you take some home. It’s not a very big place so you’ll need to go early or make a reservation.
