LA Weekly's Description

When you belly up to the counter, and your order is dumped onto a cafeteria tray as a naked mountain of meat, you know Smoke City understands. This is Texas barbecue and nothing but Texas barbecue: thick slices of brisket, salty and fatty, cooked long and slow with the heat from smoldering oak, then sliced and served au naturel. These are crackly, peppery, coarse-ground sausages smoked in hanging loops, hot guts that look like hot guts. These are beef ribs thick as Bibles and black as sin, a solid pound apiece. What Smoke City needs to get right, it does.

    I love Smoke City Market. The brisket and beef ribs are amazing. Most people know the sides are soso and the employees are not the most interesting but forget all that. Your there to eat chunks of slow cooked amazing meat. Sit back get a glass of Shiner Bock and eat!

    Order 1/4 pound of several items for a nice sampling platter!

    You want the brisket. If they run out of brisket, leave, go home, cry for hours.

    The amount of Comic Sans at this place makes me sad.

    Best brisket I've had since I moved to LA from Texas. Makes me miss home.
