Smoke Shack Finds Home on Broadway
Published: July 2, 2014
At $14, the plate is downright daunting. My chicken was seasoned well, albeit just a bit dry. As a fan of lean brisket, I loved not having to navigate my way through chunks of fat; the sausage was flavorful and abundant, but the ribs stole the spotlight. Just a step away from falling off the bone, the pork offering was peppery and tender, while the bark is just sticky enough and sweet. Your next visit could get messy.
If the packed parking lot and dining room are any indication, Conger and his growing staff have picked up a few more fans since the days at Nacogdoches, and you should add your name to the list.
