The Brisket House – 1960

The Brisket House - 1960
This is the 3rd location of Wayne Kammerl's mini-empire of consistently great, Central Texas-style barbecue, strategically located on a busy stretch of FM1960 where great barbecue is few and far between.

This former Fuddruckers building sits at the epicenter of the FM1960 (now Cypress Creek Parkway) traffic rush, with untold numbers of commuters passing by every day. In other words, it’s a great location for barbecue fans to drop in for lunch or a to-go order for dinner at The Brisket House – 1960.

That said, it’s well-built for dine-in, with a private room and huge dining rooms filled with TVs. A massive parking lot ensures customers can get in and out quickly. The two Southern Pride rotisseries are viewable from a window in the back of the dining room. Barbecue is excellent across-the-board, and well-priced.




Building: Stand-alone building (former Fuddruckers) on a big lot right off a busy stretch of FM1960 with a huge dining room, private room and expansive (and covered) outdoor patio.
Parking: Huge parking lot in the back of the property, possibly the biggest parking lot for any HOUBBQ joint, there is never a problem with parking.
Ordering: Counter ordering. Get in line and place order with the order-taker, pay, then get a number and a member of staff brings your order to your table.
Catering: Pickup and delivery only. Minimum 20 person order for delivery. There is a bulk/catering menu on the website.
Pit(s): Two wood-burning Southern Pride rotisserie pits.
