Finally, I tried the Local Texas BBQ stand for a little lunch today. It was highly recommended by my brother, who lived in Texas for 16 years so has some reasonable knowledge of Texas BBQ. The food truck/smoker combo has been around Oceanside for several years but it took until today for a trial by me.
Texas BBQ is currently located on Highway 4A near Church Rd, across from the COOP. A big food truck and a big old wood fired smoker is right there. You just pull up , walk over and order. Eat in your car or at one of several picnic tables provided.
Brisket is favourite of mine so Brisket on a Toasted Bun it is. $10 for a very generous portion. A wide selection of sauces and other condiments are supplied and I chose the Texas BBQ sauce. The brisket was fall apart tender with a nice Smokey taste. Pretty darn good. Depending on the quantity of sauce you deploy it can be messy, so take a bunch of their napkins. Here is the Brisket.
The menu is more extensive than expected. One could choose a Hot Dog, Burger, Pulled Pork, BLT and even a Pulled Pork Burrito. And pork Back Ribs too. Lots of sides to accompany you Sandwich including Potato Salad, Baked Beans and more. Of course, soft drinks can be purchased too.
If you love low, slow, BBQ, the truck is definitely in your future. They are closed Mondays but open weekends. At noon today there was a line up. Always a good sign of food goodness.
I’m thinking a pulled pork Burrito has my name on it next time.
