Saturday, September 11, 2010: Wilhite's B-B-Q (Creedmoor, TX)
About a week after I first heard of Wilhite's B-B-Q in Creedmoor (on FM 1327, between I-35 and US-183), Brad and I made the short drive from Austin. There isn't much along the road, we were looking for it, and we still missed it. Had to call 'em and find out that the restaurant adjoins the Valero gas station.
The man in charge (the one I spoke to on the phone) was standing in the doorway waiting for us as we pulled up. He greeted us with a smile and a big handshake. Wilhite's has a laid-back vibe. Their menu is quite diverse, but we stuck with BBQ, obviously. The rock pit area is rustic. Service is really good. The flavor and glaze of the pork ribs were pretty good, but the ribs themselves were really rubbery,. The brisket made a good sandwich. Ordered plenty to go after we finished. Didn't try the sausage. Yes on the sauce.
Brad's scores - Brisket: 7.75; Pork ribs: 5.25; Atmosphere: 8.25; Service: 8.7; Overall experience: 7.65
Drew's scores - Brisket: 7.65; Pork ribs: 5; Atmosphere: 7; Service: 9; Overall experience: 7.3
Overall Man-Up score: 7.475
