Our first stop of the day was Kreuz Market. I have been here two times before and was not impressed either time. Because I went for dinner the other times, I wanted to go here first when the meat was the freshest. They do not have barbecue sauce or forks here. We came prepared and brought our own forks for the girls. Kreuz was one of the top five BBQ joints in the 2008 Texas Monthly list, but in 2013, they were just in the top 50. Kreuz used to be located where Smitty's Market is. It was a family business before a falling out caused them to go their separate ways and have two BBQ joints. The families are joining forces to open a barbecue restaurant in Bee Caves. The dining room at Kreuz is huge, but I have never seen the place filled anywhere to capacity.
I would go back here as much as I really do not want to say that. The moist brisket has been disappointing every time I have eaten it. I am a brisket man so my opinion of a restaurant weighs heavily on that. I might have to try the pork chop and beef ribs next time if I go back. Our next stop is Smitty's Market. You will have to wait a week for my review of that. Sorry. Grade: B-
Until next time, happy smoking...
