Sorry....wish I had seen this sooner. Texas Great Country Cafe is good. Hooten Holler'n BBQ has great fried fish...their bbq is okay, but I think the brisket is too dry. Bosque Restaurant and Resort is okay, but I haven't been in a couple of years...really depends on who's cooking that day.

Just ate at Texas Great Country Cafe & Pie Pantry a couple of months ago. It was quite good. The pies were delish.

It is a great place... another one is the Bosque Resort Restaurant in Laguna Park at the other end of the dam. Great seafood and burgers.

Late to the party, but I keep hearing good things about Flores BBQ.

Where exactly is Flores BBQ? I swing through Whitney a few times a year on my way back from the Hill Country, and usually end up eating at HootenHoller. I'd like to try something different. I also hear there's a real good Q place in Hillsboro. Thanks

I have a friend a friend who has a place on the lake @ Laguna Park for the past 40 plus years. I/we and our wives have eaten there many times. For what it is worth in no particular order the places we eat are:
Bosque Resort Resturaunt
Hoot and Holler Bar B Q and the fish is better than the Q
Johnny's Place in Clifton
Tres Hermanos in Whitney

Flores BBQ made the Top Ten Best in Texas list. I would agree. Hours are short, only Thurs through Sat from 11a until he's sold out. Just moved into a building at the east end of Whitney on Hwy 22.

Finally made it out to Flores and this place is legit. Brisket is cooked perfectly Hill Country style. While delicious I hate that most joints are going this direction with their briskets as I would like more variety. Flores does it perfectly though. Ribs were the 2nd best I've ever had. I would love to know how he gets them so moist. I'll drive the 90 miles back out there again for the ribs alone. I'm hesitant to brag too much as I've only been there once and might have just hit them on a good day, but dame it was good.

I agree on Taylor's Smokehouse. The bun was tougher than the brisket!

Definitely need to put Taylor's SmokeHouse on Hwy 22 just East of Hillsboro on your Best BBQ list. You are really just a few minutes from Whitney and it is well worth the drive. We make the drive from Corsicana every week. The guy is a master at getting great smoke flavor and tenderness both. Also they have a good selection of sides, made from scratch, not the same pork and beans or mashed up potatoe salad most other places serve. Their potatoe salad is fresh and chunky, the pasta salad and brocilli slaw are addictive. If you are any where near I35, detour to Hyw 22, towards Corsicana and you will have a new favorite place!

Roadtrip will be curious what you think of Flores when you try it. Tried it last week and thought it was best Q I have had. I tried Taylor's a while back and must have caught them on a bad day! It did not make ANY list for me.
