Intercontinental BBQ

The brisket in the steam table bin looked hopelessly dried out when I stopped into Barney's BBQ at FM 1960 just east of the Hardy Toll Road around 12:30 in the afternoon. I asked for a sliced brisket and sausage sandwich and requested my meat from the fatty end of the brisket. The guy doing the slicing found a fairly juicy piece of meat. I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the brisket. I wasn't very impressed by the tiny portion. The sausage was nothing to write home about either. I asked for sauce on the bun and added the onions and pickles myself. Not a bad sandwich, all in all. But don't order from the drive-through, you need to supervise these guys.

This place is five minutes from Intercontinental Airport--it could come in handy if you need a place to buy barbecue to take on a plane.
