Post-Houston BBQ Smackdown, we headed a few blocks down the street to the recently-opened Phil's Texas Barbecue to watch the U.S. square off against Ghana. It's a big, pristine space. Like a new car, no wear and tear on it yet. It's got a dining area near the cafeteria-style BBQ line, and the other end of the sprawling place has a full bar, with a bunch of bar tables nearby. Not your typical Texas BBQ joint, it's more of a, well, restaurant and bar. Other than one bite of a pork rib, I didn't eat, so if there's anyone out there who's eaten at Phil's, let us know if, as their slogan says, "It's why Texans brag."
