East Texas BBQ Joint earns USA Today #2 Ranking
Riverport BBQ in Jefferson has earned the title of the number two best brisket sandwich in the state from a USA Today poll. Voting took place the first two weeks of May.
“We actually cracked number one at one point, and then we dropped back to number two, but I owe it all to this little community here,” Stephen Joseph told KLTV.
His sandwich was one of twenty that were chosen by USA Today for voting. Joseph describes his perfect brisket sandwich to have two slices, an onion and five pickles.
Who came in number one in the poll? Cooper’s Old Time Bar-B-Que in Llano, Texas, just northwest of Austin.
