Longoria's BBQ was ranked number three on D Magazine's Best BBQ in DFW list. The Texas BBQ Posse pulled into the gravel lot in Everman and headed to the back of the building to check out the smoker area, of course. Pitmaster David Longoria invited us in to check out the place, not even knowing we were on tour. Have to say I took an immediate liking to this place.
David showed us the finer points of his family's cooking techniques, then gave us a VIP tour of his dad's "James Dean Room" before heading to the small but comfortable dining room.
The highly anticipated beef brisket sausage did not disappoint. In fact, I think it might be even better than Louie Mueller's famous beef sausage. David also passed around some samples of his beef brisket jerky. Those two items alone are worth the drive to Everman. They even have a brisket burger, given two thumbs up by posse member Michael Hamtil.
Longoria's really captured the respect of our posse. The food was great. The service and atmosphere make this a must-visit BBQ joint. We got to meet most of the family, including founder Fred Longoria, and they treated us like family as well. Make this joint a stop on your next Fort Worth BBQ tour.
Longoria’s BBQ, 100 Christopher, Everman, 817-568-9494. Open Mon-Fri 10:30am-7pm, Sat 10:30am-4pm.
