Ken's catfish, BBQ and More, Marble Falls, Texas 8/20/13
sampled about 1 pm
We had planned on Peete Mesquite's in Marble Falls but they had a little sign taped to their door that said "closed today, sorry for any inconvenience." Next time. We had spotted Ken's on our previous reconnoiter so we stopped by to give it a try. The parking lot was packed, so Scott went in and got a to go box while I sat outside in the car. We had to park behind someone so I was ready to let them out. Scott came out with the pronouncement of no ribs, only brisket and sausage. After the usual quick photos, I tasted a bit of brisket and started laughing. It was corned beef brisket. Not BBQ at all. Scott confirmed I was right and we had a good laugh. The sausage was average store stuff. Scott did say the catfish looked really good and they were obviously doing a great business.
I love barbecue. I always wanted to spend some vacation time sampling the best BBQ joints in Texas. A few years ago, my friend Scott and I started doing just that and we've been doing it every year since. We call it the "Calories and Cholesterol Tour". Since so many people were asking me about our experiences, I started writing them up. We are not expert eaters or writers. We just do this for fun and because we LOVE Texas BBQ.
A note about our reviews. We tend to be "stealth" reviewers. We don't ask for pit tours or cooking techniques and we try to be discrete about taking photos til after we are done. We want to experience each meal as an average customer.

I also have a separate bass fishing blog.
