Podnuh’s is perhaps my brother’s favorite barbecue in the Shreveport area. A small chain with a cafeteria line style of service, you order your meats, and once handed what you order, you pick your choice of sides as you stroll down towards the register. On this day I had brisket, and ordered ribs to go for my family.

The brisket was pretty ordinary; the ribs were quite good. They are large ribs, done in the Saint Louis style. The smoke flavor in the ribs is distinct and you can easily see a smoke ring on the ribs. By contrast, the brisket tended to be dry and the smoke flavor was sometimes there, sometimes not.

Sides are decent; staff is quite helpful. The looks inside are worth a peek. Bits and pieces of western memorabilia cover the sides of the walls. A television is in one corner, but otherwise was a quiet place to spend an evening between Christmas and New Years.
