Rider’s Smokehouse, Central Texas Inspired BBQ, is owned and operated by
Ardis and Jim Rider, and brings amazing smells and flavors to the Valley View
Square, Valley View, Tx. Most of the legendary smoked BBQ meat palaces in
Central Texas use the counter service method, and Rider’s Smokehouse is no
exception. It's all served over the counter on butcher paper. Flatware, paper
plates, and BBQ sauces may be found on the beverage and condiment bar.
The brisket, pork spare ribs, pulled pork, Fischer’s Meat Market sausage links,
chicken, turkey breast, meatloaf wrapped in a bacon weave, salmon, bacon
wrapped jalapenos stuffed with brisket and cheese, and other meats are slow
smoked over Texas oak. The meats are right off the smoker and cut to order.
Cold drinks, including beer and wine, sides, and desserts are found in the self-
serve case. BBQ beans with chunks of brisket are one of Rider’s specialties.
For a real Texas experience, head to Rider’s Smokehouse for “Central
Texas–style” smoked meats, site made sides, desserts, and pickles.
Live music on Saturdays. Parties are welcome.
Watch for our amazing Specials!
