I ordered the two meat, two side dinner. Brisket and sausage, slaw, and macaroni and cheese. It was very tasty. The brisket was tender and had a nice smoky flavor. The sausage (I got half of each) was delicious. The jalapeno one had a nice...More

The brisket and pulled pork were moist and very tasty. Mac and cheese and green beans were average. Cole slaw, potato salad and pinto beans were good. The stuffed jalapeño was excellent. The bbq sauce was delicious Would definitely return.

I love smoked turkey and Firehouse has some of the best... However, if you want some, arrive early because it doesn't last long, it's that good!

We stopped in on our way home from vacation. The entry/ordering/serving area was very small, and guest should be courteous and make room for other arriving guests. The couple in front of us acted as if they hadn't eaten in days but didn't appear to...More

The BBQ is very tough & dry, and tasted old. It may have a nice location, but leaves a whole lot to be desired. It's a place I won't go back to.

Stopped at this place on our way through town, based on drive by appeal. Cute and rustic, but super clean. Food was good, coleslaw was fresh and light, not swimming in creamy mayo. Yes, bathrooms are a separate building outside, but again - cute and...More

If you want a real Texas BBQ this is the place to stop. It's on a busy corner and you can't miss it going or coming from Burnet.

The BBQ is good if you are lucky enough to get it fresh. They put it on a steam table and leave it all day. It is dry and tough. It is also highly over priced.
