Scott Morales has been the pitboss at Taylor Cafe in Taylor, Texas for over a decade. We go here for handmade Bohunk sausage and briskets cooked over post oak fires. Vencil Mares is the owner of the old joint (est. 1948) but it’s Mr Morales who shepherds the meat from raw to a state of extreme deliciousness.
Morales runs through a half ton of brisket per week at the old smokehouse, and just like any other barbecue restaurant, Taylor Cafe has its good days and its bad days.
