Growing up in Texas means growing up eating barbecue; it's one of the staples of life. Your taste buds come to expect it. To satisfy them, we suggest a visit to Sammy's BBQ. The meat on their ribs almost falls off the bone; their tender beef brisket is the best we've had. For a side dish, try some of their creamy potato casserole or the incredible-yes, incredible--zucchini casserole. Top off the whole meal with a slice of pie, and then you can leave knowing what it's like to eat at a top-notch barbecue joint.
