Only open on Saturdays, from 8 til noon. The line begins to form early, so we checked into a hotel in Hutto, showered and brushed our teeth the night before, and were out the door at 5:30 AM for the 55 minute drive. The line...More

Well, we can now take Snow's Barbeque off our our BBQ Bucket List. Pretty good overall, but I would not rate it at the top of our list, as we rate Smitty's, Coopers, Hard Eight, Luling City Market, Louie Mueller's, and Salt Lick higher. The...More

Small, sociable environment. Staff is friendly and productive in getting your order to you as quick as possible. You can taste the many years of experience in the meat! In Texas, BBQ is abundant but at SNOWS it's more than great TEXAS BBQ. It's a...More

Texas Monthly recently declared Snow's to be the best barbecue in Texas. I wish they hadn't. Not that they're wrong. But the line was much shorter a few months before this year's ranking was published. I am a brisket fan. Snow's brisket is the moistest,...More

Our trip to Snow's was terrific. We got there about 6a.m and were the 3rd couple in line. While we were waiting for them to open, we talked to and had pictures taken with Kerry and Tootsie. When they opened, we ordered some of everything....More

We went here a few weeks ago while visiting the Austin area. We got in line at 6am and were towards the front of the line. The BBQ is top notch, the owner's really friendly, and the free keg beer is a plus. It was...More

We drove an hour and a half from Fort Hood, got in line at 8:30 am, then waited for FOUR hours to finally order - but it was all worth it. Bring chairs. The line moves slowly, mostly because there is limited seating indoors and...More

It's only open on Saturday from 8am until they run out of meat. I strongly suggest getting there around 7:30, so you will be near the front of what can become a long line and avoid a long wait. It's worth it. This is some... More

There is outside dining but I wouldn't imagine you could take the pet inside to pick up order.
