The Travelin Man
I found the Luling outlet on Richmond to be very overrated. I thought that the brisket was tough, but the ribs were excellent. My understanding is that this location is a shadow of the original City Market in Luling. I will try to make it there during my next visit to Central Texas to compare.
I liked Goode Co. It hardly seemed touristy to me….most of the folks that were there when I was there were dressed in business attire — seemed to attract quite a local lunch following from that set.
I know that the sample size is small — just one meal at each, but my recommendation would be Goode Co. over Luling City Market in Houston.
