The Best BBQ Road Trips in Texas

best bbq joints in texas

While DFW has exceptional BBQ places, if you’re taking a road trip past one of these BBQ joints (or if you’re just a BBQ fanatic and are looking to take a road trip specifically for some good BBQ!), then you owe it to yourself to grab a platter at one of these restaurants. Just be sure to drop by Classic Chevy before you hit the road to  make sure that your vehicle is ready for the trip.

Miller’s Smokehouse

Miller’s Smokehouse, located in Belton, has been serving up their BBQ since 2008. It’s a family run affair, with father and son tending the pits while mom makes desserts. They started out selling sausage wraps part-time out of a meat-processing business before moving on to bigger and better things with a devoted location and expanded menu. These days you can get your hands on brisket, ribs, and house-made beef-and-pork sausages. There’s also smoked turkey, smoked chicken, and pulled pork. After you’re done with your meal, you can always grab some to-go from their meat case, which includes packages of their famous sausages.

Gatlin’s BBQ

Gatlin’s BBQ, located in Houston, is an expansive place run by a former defensive back at Rice University. Open in 2010, Gatlin’s BBQ serves up excellent brisket, but absolutely exceptional  pork ribs. There’s also the selection of sausages, including some game options like venison. Another special point of Gatlin’s is the fusion of Cajun comfort foods, such as dirty rice. It lends the place a unique identity amid so many other BBQ joints that only serve up potato salad and cole slaw.

CorkScrew BBQ

CorkScrew BBQ is located in Spring, Texas, among the charming historic Old Town neighborhood, serves up some of the best BBQ in Texas, hands down. There’s the Black Angus Prime all-natural brisket and beef rib in a black-pepper jacket. Then there’s the Duroc pulled pork. Or the juicy whole chicken. Be sure to check it out if you’re in Spring for whatever reason.

Louie Mueller Barbecue

One of the oldest BBQ joints in Texas, Louie Mueller Barbecue opened way back in 1949. It’s got a long and storied history as far as BBQ joints go. It’s still family-owned and on its third generation of pitmasters. Located in Taylor, Texas, in what used to be a gymnasium, Louie Mueller has honed its menu over decades, serving up delicious beef ribs, peppered brisket, house-made sausages, pork ribs, and pulled pork, among others. If you love good BBQ, you’ll love the phenomenal BBQ at Louie Mueller’s. Don’t pass it up.

Why You Should Take a Test Drive at Classic Chevrolet

take a test drive

When you find that perfect vehicle at Classic Chevrolet, whether you find it online or because you stopped by the showroom, you should take a test drive. Taking a test drive prevents buyer’s remorse for many reasons, including comfort while driving or riding and features available for various models and trim levels.

Ensure It’s Spacious

While you might like a vehicle’s looks, you should take a test drive to ensure that it’s a good fit. If you are a taller person, some vehicles may not have enough legroom or headroom. If you are shorter, the seats may not move forward enough so that you can comfortably reach the pedals.

And if you have a larger family and love to take road trips, or plan on carpooling, you’ll definitely want to ensure that the rear and third row seats have plenty of room for adults or teens, not just smaller children. Without a test drive, you won’t know until it’s too late – then you won’t be happy with your purchase.

See How It Rides

Even though the vehicle you fall in love with looks great and has plenty of space, you might not like the ride. Many new vehicles have settings for steering and the transmission, though some don’t and you might not like how the vehicle rides. Also, you may not find that the seats are comfortable enough for you. Taking a test drive allows you to evaluate whether you are comfortable with the ride.

Verify Features

While everything might be what you want – fit, comfort, ride – if you buy a vehicle without test driving it, you may later learn that the model does not have certain features you need; or that it might have features you don’t want. While many features are listed on our website and in our blog posts, not every feature is always included in every vehicle. Taking a test drive allows you to look for and test certain features.

Choosing an SUV vs Sedan

Classic Chevy here, giving you the best information on sedans and SUVs. First of all, if you’re in the market for a new vehicle, you might be wondering which type of vehicle to buy. Sedans and SUVs have different benefits and we’re here to run them down for you so you can make a great decision when you buy.


If you’re looking to buy an SUV, you might want to consider a few pros and cons.

The pros:

  • You may have optional four-wheel drive.
  • You have more space in the SUV to carry items and people.
  • You can take SUVs on camping expeditions and into rough terrain.

The cons:

  • Gas is expensive with many older SUVs, and if the MPG rating isn’t great, you’ll be looking at spending a lot of money at the pump.
  • Larger vehicles may need more upkeep.
  • You may have difficulty getting up to speed as quickly as you can in a sedan.


If you’re considering a sedan, you can think about these pros and cons:

The pros:

  • Sedans typically get more miles to the gallon than SUVs, which means you’ll save money on gas.
  • Sedans are quicker in many cases, so you can get up to higher speeds on highways.
  • Sedans are closer to the ground, so they may feel more stable.

The cons:

  • Sedans can’t hold as much as an SUV, so if you plan on long trips with multiple people, you could run out of space or feel cramped.
  • Sedans don’t normally have four-wheel drive unless you upgrade your package.
  • Sedans may not be able to handle rough terrain or inclement weather conditions as well as SUVs.

When it comes down to your decision, you’ll need to know what you plan to do with a sedan or SUV before you buy. Your lifestyle will be a major factor in the need for either one of these vehicles.

Getting Your Chevy Ready For Spring Break

Spring wildflowers along Texas State Hwy 16 north of Fredricksburg

Road trips are fun and exciting and are largely popular during Spring Break. Students, teachers, and other persons who desire a break from the dull winter months head for sunny beaches and warmer climates. Before you head out this year to your favorite vacation hideaway, make sure your Chevy is just as ready to go as you are. There are several things to check before you hit the road.

Oil changes are usually pretty cheap and quick at most places. This is wonderful since it is a crucial, key component when readying your pride and joy for a Spring Break road trip. While you’re at Classic Chevrolet getting your oil changed, it’s a great idea to make sure to have your fluids checked and topped off as necessary. This includes the power steering fluid, transmission fluid, and brake fluid. You don’t want to get caught down the road with an overheated engine, so also check your coolant levels.

Tires are designed to wear out, so check to see that you have ample tread on your tires. If you aren’t sure, use the penny trick. Grab a penny and stick it into the grooves of the tread with Abe’s head down. If you can see his entire head clearly, it’s time for new tires. Also, be sure to keep an eye on the PSI in your tires. The proper inflation amount should be listed either in your owner’s manual or the inside sticker of the driver’s side door. Proper PSI will also give you better fuel economy on your trip.

Don’t overload your vehicle. Only take with you the things you really need. Take out those school books, gym bags, or other unneeded objects before you pack for your adventure. The lighter your car or truck, the better mileage you ultimately receive. Keep your speed in check, too. We all get excited to get to our destination, but easy does it. Remember that every 10 miles per hour you go over the limit is going to decrease your fuel efficiency.

Stop by Classic Chevrolet

Keep this simple checklist in mind before you head out for Spring Break. If you need assistance with any of these items, stop by Classic Chevy. Our friendly service department staff is more than willing to assist you.
