There's no secret recipe or special ingredient that makes Cattleman's BBQ the best in town, and some even say it's the best in the nation. If you must know how they grill their BBQ ribs and brisket to perfection, Cattleman's owner Dieter Gerzymisch will tell you that it's slow cooked over mesquite wood for about 20 hours. Cattleman's BBQ is so popular that they make and sell more than 200 pounds a day. If they're out when you get there, you're out of luck. But while it lasts, you can choose from overflowing plates of mouthwatering beef and ribs that'll make you proud to be a Texan. Indian Cliffs Ranch, Fabens, I-10 Exit 49, 915-544-3200; 915-764-2283.
