Pitmaster Greg Gatlin's Garden Oaks outpost constitutes a comprehensive upgrade from the old days on 19th Street, including in the kitchen. Brisket, pork ribs, and sausage are more consistently well-executed than ever before, and the signature sides — dirty rice, green beans, and mac and cheese — taste just a little better than ever. Already ranked by Texas Monthly as one of the state's top 50 barbecue joints, Gatlin's collaboration with executive chef Michelle Wallace has produced a slew of new menu items, including creative sandwiches and a smoked seafood gumbo that's a must-order every time it shows up on the specials board.
