BBQ daytrip to Smithville, Micklethwait

porsche 951 micklethwait smithville tx

I've been told that Micklethwait BBQ is as good as Franklin, but far less hassle. It's been available from a food truck in Austin for a couple years. They've now opened a real restaurant style location in Smithville. It took us about 45 minutes to get there.

$17 for three generous meat portions and two sides! With tax and tip it came to just $21. It was more food than the two of us could eat. Kat had plenty left to have lunch for today.  


It was all delicious. They had free Lone Star as they don't yet have a lic. to sell. You can also BYO for now.

Kat and I took some time to stroll through downtown Smithville. I've heard a lot about it recently, this was our first time there. The downtown has several art galleries and antique shops. We found a juice bar and bought locally grown tomato from a farmer's market. It was a wonderful afternoon.
