Back when I used to regularly read and post on Chowhound, there was a Houston area poster named Brucesw who had a hound dog’s nose for really good sausage. He pointed me to Eureste’s down in Waelder Texas and it became one of my all time favorite Central Texas barbecue joints.
When it was still open, I used to love to take my friends down there on a sunny Fall afternoon to sit in the tiny dining room off the pit and imagine hearing Confederate cavalry men thundering down the nearby dirt roads.
It was about as old school a joint as you could ever imagine.
Brucesw has his own blog and it’s a good one. Hit the link to take a trip through the culinary backroads of Houston Texas
