Spring Creek Barbeque

Missouri City, Texas
Cuisine: Barbecue and smoked meats
Continuing on my quest for the best barbecue in the bend, this week I bring you Spring Creek Barbeque. Served cafeteria style, the sliced brisket, black pepper sausage, ribs, beans and coleslaw were sampled. The menu was typical, offering beef, mild or peppered sausage, chicken, ribs, and surprisingly, pulled pork. Pulled pork is not as readily found in this area. A two-meat dinner plate was $10.95; sandwiches were around $8.95.
All the meats sampled had a mild smoky flavor that was pleasing, but short of outstanding. Disappointing was the temperature of the meats, which were not even warm by the time we got to our table.
For those who prefer sauce on their barbeque, the flavor of the sauce is just as important as the flavor of the meat. Their original barbeque sauce was tasty, not too overbearing, but again, not outstanding. The side dishes were okay, not bad, but ordinary. Did I mention the warm rolls? They were melt-in-your-mouth delicious! A server generously strolled around with a basket full, offering as many as your heart desires.
Two things stood out with this experience: the fact that they offered pulled pork, and the heavenly homemade rolls. Overall, it was pleasing and satisfying, but I’m still searching for the best. Stay tuned…
Overall Rating: 4 stars.
