I was in my work cafeteria buying my typical lunch when, out of the corner of my eye, I saw the Texas flag. And there it was…a giant food truck claiming to bring Central Texas to East Tennessee. Being from San Antonio and going to college in Austin, I had to see for myself. I ditched the lunch I’d just bought and rushed outside. The first bite of their brisket seriously brought tears to my eyes. It is legit. It is amazing. It is like I spent $$$ to fly home to Central Texas and eat brisket there. My reaction – so emotional, so full of joy – caused many of my coworkers to head outside and order their lunch with Taste-o-Texas. Thank you thank you thank you for brightening my day, my week, my month, my year!
We got the brisket and pulled pork meat sampler platter and the ribs to go (ribs are a Saturday special). The ribs were so good, just salt and pepper and smoke, and shred off the bone tender. They sent us with a bunch of sauces, but we didn’t use them. The sides were tasty too. Decent portions for the price. The red-headed woman behind the counter was really sweet. I definitely will be telling people to try this place.
WOW!! What a great addition to our small community! Taste-O-Texas is outstanding! The restaurant is very clean, the staff is super friendly and goes the extra mile in offering suggestions and to make sure you are pleased. The brisket is to die for!! When I placed a carry out order for brisket nachos, the staff separated the cheese and brisket from the nachos so they didn’t get soggy. That is service!! I have heard the ribs are excellent but have not tried them yet, sides are also excellent.
