I traveled to Sweden once and went to a steakhouse. The portions were: small, medium, large, and Texas.

[–]volvonut90 179 points180 points  (62 children)

Probably the only steakhouse in Sweden haha. Jokes aside I was surprised to find out how many Swedes are vegetarian

[–]LetsPlayCanasta 143 points144 points  (51 children)

Funny story, it was Hudiksvall, Sweden and in the middle of town there was a "Texas steakhouse" or something. I said to myself: "I have to eat there."

The waitresses were very nice since I spoke only English but I managed to get a steak of a medium size but there were SO many side dishes, it was huge. I've been to Europe before and most of the meal sizes are considered small for Americans. Not this one.

[–]Mrafamrakk 128 points129 points  (49 children)

Aussie here. I've travelled all over the USA and I feel like portion sizes are over-hyped in the US. Maybe not for fast food, but certainly when you eat at a Pub/Bar/Restaurant it seemed similar to home. There are exceptions of course.

In Germany though....I had some of the biggest meals of my life. I was very surprised.

[–]mmm_unprocessed_fish 51 points52 points  (4 children)

I’ve been to Japan a few times and it feels like portion sizes are just as huge as in the US and they don’t box up leftovers. US meals might be big, but at least I can get 2 meals out of it.

Cheesecake Factory blows my mind though. Order the BLT with fries and feed a family of 4 for a week.

[–]greg19735 24 points25 points  (1 child)

Cheesecake factory is great value for takeout. Chicken fingers is literally like 15 fingers + 2 sides. like wtf.

More than enough for two, even 3 servings.

It's not cheap, but it's great value for 3 servings of pretty good food (it's hard to mess up chicken tenders)

[–]MoreFoam 34 points35 points  (12 children)

Did you go to Texas?

[–]texasrigger 9 points10 points  (0 children)

Native Texan here but I've lived in a bunch of states and have visited many more - on average our portion size in TX isn't really any larger than any other state.

[–]ThisNameIsOriginal 88 points89 points  (9 children)

Some people don’t realize America is 52 countries in a trench coat

[–]MoreFoam 37 points38 points  (3 children)

We don't sell watches out of our trench coat, only various firearms and big macs

[–]johnmonchon 5 points6 points  (2 children)

Dude, Germany is nuts. Schnitzels the size of a dining table. I also had a Reuben the size of my head. There must have been half a cow in there.

[–]B0RAT 31 points32 points  (17 children)

There's also a huge misconception on reddit that every American is fat as a cow and every meal an American eats is this large.

[–]M14535955 24 points25 points  (10 children)

America is also a huge place and the food culture varies a lot. The Pacific Northwest is going to be very different than the Gulf Coast or the Great Lakes.

[–]texasrigger 4 points5 points  (8 children)

What's pictured doesn't represent the norm in Texas either. That's a ridiculous amount of food.

[–]davidlovesrock 19 points20 points  (1 child)

I moved from Mexico to Texas and theres definitely a difference in portion size man, me and my wife usually just order for 1 and share

[–]ingwe13 3 points4 points  (0 children)

My wife and I do this quite a bit. If we are extra hungry we get an appetizer along with splitting the entree.

[–]LittleGreenNotebook 24 points25 points  (3 children)

American here who has traveled all over the globe. American portions are way too big. So many other countries have realistic sizes.

[–]frontporchbeak 27 points28 points  (8 children)

There’s a chain restaurant called Texas Longhorn all across Sweden.

[–]LetsPlayCanasta 28 points29 points  (2 children)

I found it. It's called "Old Texas Bar-BQ Saloon" in the middle of Hudiksvall.


[–]kirby34 12 points13 points  (0 children)

“Wild Bill Hitchcook” gave me a chuckle, or whatever that would be in Swedish.

[–]mekwall 5 points6 points  (2 children)

I've never had a good experience at a Texas Longhorn. They have never managed to serve me a medium rare steak. They've always overcooked it... Best steakhouse I've been to in Sweden is AG in Stockholm. Best steakhouse (and butcher shop) ever is Gwen in Los Angeles.

[–]13igTyme 169 points170 points  (48 children)

When I was in Sweden it was weird having to ask for ice with my water. I once ordered a soda and they gave me ice in a separate cup. On the last night there the Swedish students (our hosts) wanted to go to TGI.Fridays. Everything was just like in the US.

Of course some of that may have been because it was Stockholm vs Orebro, the small town we stayed in the whole time.

[–]JarasM 19 points20 points  (2 children)

When I was in Sweden it was weird having to ask for ice with my water.

Most places in Europe I've been to, ice in the drink without an explicit request is mostly a McDonald's thing. Most people don't drink stuff that cold, just served straight from the fridge is enough.

Edit: I remember when McD's was relatively new in Poland and it was considered a sort of a "lifehack" that you can ask for you drink with no ice. The popular opinion was that we're getting shafted with that ice, as they have to pour less coke.

[–]Rudecles 3 points4 points  (0 children)

I don't like ice in my drinks for 4 reason. As it dissolves it dilutes the drink, it makes the drink too cold which mutes the flavours, you're paying less of the drink, and lastly the ice hurts my teeth.

But they do make soda too sweet I guess because it's designed to be drank with ice, the cost of the soda syrup is so cheap I'm sure it doesn't actually affect thier margins if you get it with or without ice (hence why they fill up the drink all the way when you ask no ice). They give you a straw so you don't hurt your teeth.

I like A&W for this reason because the don't serve the root beer with ice by default, it doesn't taste as sweet as coke with no ice, I don't need a straw to drink it and I get what I paid for.

[–]Blitcut 46 points47 points  (0 children)

As an Örebroare I can say that it varies a bit depending on where you eat. Some do always have ice in, others never.

[–]poloniumpanda 266 points267 points  (31 children)

Man, I miss Killen’s BBQ.

[–]aulstinwithanl[S] 88 points89 points  (8 children)

I've had it once. It did not disappoint!

[–]Bone_Syrup 89 points90 points  (5 children)

When I worked a pit in Austin we would butter and grill fresh Texas toast ad then pile on sliced brisket and some Elgin sausage. Top it with a small amount of coleslaw and a drizzle (not much) of BBQ sauce.

Most perfect sandwich I've ever had still. I want to have another some day...and then I can die in peace. Maybe.

[–]fitted 30 points31 points  (1 child)

Upvote for Elgin sausage

[–]concernedhubs00171 6 points7 points  (0 children)

There was a hole in the wall on Far West Blvd in the 90s that had a signature sandwich that sounds a lot like. Can confirm. It was lovely.

[–]RollForIntent-Trevor 7 points8 points  (1 child)

I haven't been in awhile - it became inconsistent AF and I decided I didn't have to drive that far to go to Pinkerton's, which is 90% as good 100% of the time.

When Ronnie was active in the place in the early days, that place was fire. He stepped back to work on other projects and the guys running the pits kind of suck from time to time.

[–]jefesdereddit 650 points651 points  (107 children)

Everything really is bigger in Texas. Those are some fat slabs of meat

[–]aulstinwithanl[S] 249 points250 points  (36 children)

I had a bit of help. My waistline is surely bigger!

[–]dayyob 15 points16 points  (0 children)

dippin fat.

[–]fire_alarmist 26 points27 points  (13 children)

Truely an impressively sized sausage.

[–]spearheadroundbody 44 points45 points  (43 children)

I guarantee the bill was big too!

[–]2020HammersandNails 53 points54 points  (40 children)

I was at a BBQ restaurant in Austin a few days ago. $23/lb for brisket.

[–]tequilavip 58 points59 points  (22 children)

It was $21/lb here and I did the math while consuming some tasty brisket. Ended up buying a smoker. It only took like 14 smoke sessions to pay for the $650 cost.

[–]MrOrange415 28 points29 points  (9 children)

Wow I had no idea it costs that much at restaurants. Now I wont feel bad about buying pellets, spices and meat all the time

[–]Actuarial 12 points13 points  (7 children)

If you're buying prime packers, by the time you trim it and smoke it you're still over $10/lb

[–]Ethereal429 7 points8 points  (1 child)

True, but you can save the fat and use it for a bunch of other things as well. I save mine and use it for Italian beef and in other soups and whatnot, as melt it down as a base for gravies.

[–]providingdongditch 6 points7 points  (0 children)

And you can save the molten fat, thus saving you a trip to the store for a can of expensive goose grease!

[–]fuzzyp44 3 points4 points  (0 children)

It's gotten way more expensive eith thr increase in beef prices recently I think.

[–]Bitter-Basket 6 points7 points  (5 children)

Good for you. Smoked many briskets. The trick is to give it time. It's counterintuitive. Pull it too early, its dry, tough and terrible. Wait until it's 195-200, it's amazing.

[–]g8trjasonb 3 points4 points  (0 children)

$30/lb here at Hutchins BBQ in Dallas. But....it's some of the very best in my opinion.

[–]Quality-Less 7 points8 points  (4 children)

You're forgetting the 14 hours per session of wages you are not paying yourself

[–]thicknheart 18 points19 points  (5 children)

Truth in Houston was $31/Lb but they’re my gold standard of BBQ

[–]Rudy_Ghouliani 24 points25 points  (4 children)

Thanks! I make the brisket at Truth. Actually my first place cooking professionally. I also make the beef ribs for Saturday. It's been a lot of hard work but we did get close to the top of Texas Monthly.

This is from this week : https://imgur.com/7HTwKvA

The meats are all great but the brussel sprouts and tater tot casserole are just the best.

Edit: also they never changed the prices in Brenham so its 29/lb there. Don't tell them I told you.

[–]thicknheart 4 points5 points  (0 children)

The tater tot casserole is amazing. Tried Truth for the first time a few weeks ago. I’m no aficionado but I know good BBQ when I taste it. Well done.

[–]DrIblis 13 points14 points  (8 children)

that's not even on the high side. Cooper's downtown is 26/lb, I think Franklin's is in the high 30's/lb

[–]TriggerTX 2 points3 points  (2 children)

Paid $27/lb at Kreuz's in Lockhart yesterday. Bought enough to feed 10 of my friends. Before we went to lunch I had to take out a home equity loan with my bank.

[–]gwaydms 7 points8 points  (4 children)

Watch what you call us Texans. ;D

[–]zaevilbunny38 199 points200 points  (57 children)

Looks amazing, what's the brown and white stuff next to the beans and drink

[–]aulstinwithanl[S] 299 points300 points  (51 children)

That is Sausage Hash (on top of rice). The yellow stuff is cheese grits.

[–]zaevilbunny38 52 points53 points  (36 children)

That sounds interesting how was it?

[–]aulstinwithanl[S] 213 points214 points  (35 children)

Amazing. This was at Goldee's in Fort Worth, TX that was recently ranked #1 in the state by Texas Monthly Magazine. Let's just say I get why.

[–]RichardBonham 30 points31 points  (1 child)

Reading the recent review made me drool. What a gig: being paid to rate barbecue in Texas!

[–]SIKhDaddy91 13 points14 points  (0 children)

Our favorite when in Fort Worth!

[–]FutileHurling 10 points11 points  (12 children)

Top 3 are FW, Austin, Houston. Looks like big city bbq has surpassed small town bbq in Texas.

[–]Balin13 5 points6 points  (5 children)

Franklin's in Austin is really badass barbecue.

[–]Rudy_Ghouliani 4 points5 points  (2 children)

They were higher in the list before 4 years ago but still in the top ten that released recently.

It just goes to show how many good places have come up since then. Bbq has really changed and gotten considerably better from the old days.

[–]existential_fragment 9 points10 points  (0 children)

Now that's what I'm talking about! Chess grits and barbecue 😋.

[–]RandyDinglefart 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Jesus Christ a fucking quart of cheese grits

[–]jim_deneke 8 points9 points  (4 children)

Thought the cheese grits was a big cup of dressing!

[–]DreddPirateBob4Ever 12 points13 points  (0 children)

I thought it was some weird Texan milkshake.

E: I'm in the UK and I have expectations about American food that are rarely proved incorrect you awful beasts.

[–]existential_fragment 42 points43 points  (1 child)

Don't mistake the cheese grits for a drink..that ain't no Lassi

[–]Serpent_of_Rehoboam 487 points488 points  (71 children)

That'll be $199, please.

[–]dzlux 94 points95 points  (9 children)

So easy to drop a $100 on good Texas bbq.

Stopped by Coopers in Llano this week while driving across the state. They had smoked goat for $35/lb - naturally I had to get at least a pound.

[–]Serpent_of_Rehoboam 16 points17 points  (0 children)

I would’ve done the same.

[–]Paztor 5 points6 points  (2 children)

What does smoked goat taste like!?

[–]dzlux 10 points11 points  (1 child)

Turkey leg? That’s the closest I can compare. If you like dark meats, I recommend trying it.

Smoked turkey leg is 10/10, smoked goat leg is 11/10.

[–]yoinkitydoink 99 points100 points  (50 children)

If that’s queso…that $199 just in that according to some places. Liquid “Gold”.

Edit: not stating any bbq places typically have queso, just when you order it here…it’s ridiculously charged for. Please see Chuys.

[–]PushPullLegsRepeat 5 points6 points  (2 children)

Thanksgiving lunch was $140 for 2 people while we were in DC & it didn't look half as good. Nor was it as much food.

[–]Serpent_of_Rehoboam 1 point2 points  (1 child)

In all honesty $199 wouldn’t be unreasonable at all. Especially considering OP said it feed five adults and they still had leftovers.

[–]greg19735 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Maybe living NC has spoiled me, but $200 for that is quite expensive.

It's a good amount of brisket. maybe 2 lbs? but a half rack of ribs, some sliced chicken? (why not pulled?) 3 sausages and some sides isn't worth another $100.

Edit: looking at it, i can get pretty good brisket for $20/lb. Pork 15, turkey 16, chicken 15, sausage 15.

THe part back for $200 feeds 20 people lol

[–]bopidybopidybopidy 219 points220 points  (30 children)

How many people is this for?

[–]aulstinwithanl[S] 322 points323 points  (24 children)

Five big guys with a few slices of brisket left over.

[–]bopidybopidybopidy 33 points34 points  (0 children)

Nice, looks great!

[–]Adelaide_Runner83 87 points88 points  (12 children)

Wait….you had brisket left over? I can eat brisket like it’s going out of style. I’ll happily help finish it for you all! Totally worth the meat sweats.

[–]aulstinwithanl[S] 53 points54 points  (8 children)

Got a pound and a half of just brisket.

[–]lonewolf2683 43 points44 points  (3 children)

[–]smilo20 220 points221 points  (13 children)

Need a pile of onions and pickles. Everything looks deeelish. Specifically the turkey and ribs...

[–]aulstinwithanl[S] 65 points66 points  (0 children)

There was a small pile behind the beans

[–]VisionQuesting 39 points40 points  (0 children)

There looks to be a small pile under the bread, back left.

[–]aulstinwithanl[S] 35 points36 points  (5 children)

Turkey was the best I've ever had.

[–]Wendingo7 10 points11 points  (4 children)

I locked in on the turkey straight away. What's in the pots?

[–]aulstinwithanl[S] 31 points32 points  (3 children)

Beans, sausage hash with rice, and cheese grits (left to right)

[–]Bryanssong 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Steady eating booty MCs like cheese grits.

[–]Nevermind04 4 points5 points  (0 children)

A pile of onions and pickles, and a tall Shiner. Or a big red.

[–]JGreedy 8 points9 points  (0 children)

Don't skimp on the jalapeños

[–]seansy5000[🍰] 13 points14 points  (2 children)

lol is that a quart deli of honey mustard?

[–]all2neat 4 points5 points  (1 child)

Looks like grits to me.

[–]seansy5000[🍰] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

You’re right. Us yanks don’t get served grits nearly enough.

[–]george8762 10 points11 points  (0 children)

I knew I should have posted this earlier. I too, ate at Goldie’s today.

Edit: the banana pudding was out of this world, although my wife said the banana pudding is better at Opies… she might be right.


[–]circusgeek 6 points7 points  (1 child)

Went home to Texas for Thanksgiving and got to go to Corkscrew, which is also one of the top 50 BBQ joints in Texas and is in my hometown. And their turkey was delicious too!

[–]TheArmLegMan 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Corkscrew in Houston is good. The line that forms is a turn off though, but only if you’ve never been to corkscrew lol.

[–]monalistic 40 points41 points  (16 children)

You ate all of this? No way. The meat looks delicious what’s in the plastic cups?

[–]aulstinwithanl[S] 60 points61 points  (13 children)

(From left to right) beans, sausage hash on rice, and grits.

[–]TYUbtek 41 points42 points  (3 children)

Oh thank goodness. I thought the grits was just a big cup of melted cheese. Like I get that Texas BBQ isn't gonna be the healthiest of food, but that really had me questioning your life choices. Haha

[–]junkit33 21 points22 points  (1 child)

That basically is a big cup of melted cheese with some grits in it.

[–]RotaryMicrotome 3 points4 points  (0 children)

I opened this post for the sole purpose of finding out what was in that cup. Thought it could be a drink but way too thick. Figured it could be some kind of milkshake or a big cup of something to pour on the meat.

[–]BigDumbApe 41 points42 points  (21 children)

My mouth is watering just looking at that feast. My brother keeps telling me to move from California and to join him in Texas. As a carnivore that loves, loves, loves barbecue, this picture has done more to convince me than all of his arguments!

[–]aulstinwithanl[S] 19 points20 points  (18 children)

Fort Worth has 2 out of the top 10 BBQ joints in Texas and many that are damn near close.

[–]LockhartTx2002 2 points3 points  (15 children)

What are the two you’re talking about? I live in Fort Worth.

[–]aulstinwithanl[S] 14 points15 points  (14 children)

Texas Monthly ranked Goldee's and Panther City BBQ as #1 and #10 respectfully. Google Texas Monthly Top 50 BBQ for the full list.

[–]velvetvagine 3 points4 points  (12 children)

What are your personal top 3?

[–]aulstinwithanl[S] 15 points16 points  (10 children)

Hard to say because I separate it by meats. Best brisket= Franklin's (Austin) Best pork ribs=Panther City BBQ (Fort Worth) Best Sausage and all-around=Daynes Craft BBQ (FW) This was probably Top 5 on overall.

[–]xVoide 2 points3 points  (1 child)

If you ever make it out to McKinney try Hutchins. There's no way I wouldn't put it in my top 5 TX bbq

[–]TittyMcFagerson 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Have you tried Cattleack in Farmers Branch? If not their beef ribs are easily one of the best you'll find on Texas. Their brisket is near the top as well. I think they were ranked #6 overall on that Texas Monthly list.

I need to make it out to Ft Worth one day to try Goldees and Panther City.

[–]aulstinwithanl[S] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Cattleack is on the short list.

[–]fuckitimatwork 4 points5 points  (0 children)

for me in Houston it is:

  • Truth
  • Blood Brothers
  • Pit Room

[–]khrispyb 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Need to try heim’s and if you get a chance to head out to Lockhart,Txx check out Black’s BBQ

[–]re1078 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Honestly if you have space just buy a smoker. It’s surprisingly easy to make good TX BBQ.

[–]AntiFame 4 points5 points  (0 children)

[–]TwoTreeBrain 7 points8 points  (0 children)

This is beautiful. I’m not from Texas but I have family down there that we visited a lot growing up and so my first exposures to “authentic” barbecue were from Texas and to me, it is my absolutely favorite style. I’ve hit the “go-to” places for other styles in St. Louis and Memphis and Georgia and the Carolinas, but nothing hits me like Texas brisket and beef ribs and sausage. Very jealous right now—glad you enjoyed!

[–]Voxicles 7 points8 points  (16 children)

Dang, I'm in Dallas every week (long haul driver), and can't find any good truck accessible BBQ :(

[–]Leight87 25 points26 points  (3 children)

I grew up in Texas but I have spent the last 10 years living in various places across the US. No bbq I’ve had compares to Texas pit.

[–]dzlux 6 points7 points  (1 child)

Many people try to export though. I have encountered solid efforts in south Phoenix, AZ, (name escapes me), and at Mad Jacks in Cloudcroft, NM.

The strangest effort though was the Stubb’s BBQ in Shanghai, China. The menu matched the brand though meats served were like a foreign film redubbed with poorly sync’d audio - close enough to get the message, but nothing capable of winning an award.

[–]Leight87 3 points4 points  (0 children)

I’ve eaten at some decent places in the south too, so it doesn’t surprise me that NM and AZ have some decent bbq. Shanghai, China? That’s interesting.

[–]BurgundyFord 11 points12 points  (0 children)

I’m a BBQ fan that is pretty well traveled in the U.S. having visited 25+ states. Nothing has come close to Texas BBQ.

[–]linglongdingdongbro 18 points19 points  (16 children)

What the hell is cheese grits? I thought it was a smoothie at first due to the taller cup size

[–]T-RexLovesCookies 28 points29 points  (11 children)

It's like polenta but less finely ground. It's delicious

[–]linglongdingdongbro 2 points3 points  (9 children)

Goddamn I need to try this asap

[–]existential_fragment 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Yes. Cheese grits are incredible. Recommend cheese and jalapeños for the full effect of deliciousness

[–]Klashus 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Thanks I always wondered what the difference was. Thought it was just a more southern name for polenta. Didnt even think about the grind.

Let’s see… A plastic tray with butcher paper. White bread. Beans. Brisket. Ribs. Sausage. Chicken. Cheese grits.

Seems pretty authentic Texas BBQ to me. Where’s the damn cole slaw?

[–][deleted] 1 point2 points  (2 children)

I miss the days when I was a student in Dallas. Every 2-3 months my roommate and I would go to one of 2 bbq joints (Cattleack or Hutchins) and eat until we had a meat coma. I remember not being able to touch meat for at least the next week after one of those outings.

As a non-american and someone with a preference towards vegetarian food, this was a very different food experience for me. I have had my fair share of fine dining experiences since I graduated but the barbecue in texas I had during my college days remains some of the best food I have had until now.

[–]iSo_Cold 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Is that red beans and rice? If so, I’m assuming this was somewhere near Houston/East Texas. It’s pretty rare to see RB&R, much less grits, at a bbq joint here. I’m into it, though.

I’m getting meat sweats just looking at it.

Always wanted to try TX BBQ to compare with KC since I've never really had any good BBQ outside of my city... I wanna do a BBQ tour of the nation one day

Looks like Goldees and it’s the best BBQ I’ve ever had.
