    C.A.Y.A.'s menu changed since our last visit but the same excellent BBQ and smoked dishes remain. One of the new items on the menu was the Texas Charcuterie Board. It was a great way to introduce our friends who had never eaten there before to the variety of yummy smoked dishes that C.A.YA. is famous for including their brisket, ribs and pulled pork along with a variety of accompanying sides. The burnt ends served with a horseradish sauce were our favorite and they are highly recommended.

    Hello Sue, the insight and thought put into your review are very admirable. We do change the entrees on our menu quite frequently, however, our regular patrons can still expect to find all the smokehouse classics when they revisit us here. I am happy that you chose to get the Texas Charcuterie Board with your friends. That is a really fun way to try a huge part of the menu! We appreciate you and the recommendation. Thank you so much, Sue!

    Good food, fun atmosphere. It was very noisy so it was hard to hear each other and place wasn't packed just no sound barriers. I will go back.

    The food and service were terrific. The St. Louis Ribs were perfectly smoked and very flavorful. The mac and cheese side was pretty awesome along with the truffle fries. It wasn’t very busy which led to a relatively subdued atmosphere. After all it was a cold, snowy winter night. Perhaps it’s more electric in warmer weather. All things said we enjoyed ourselves and will likely come back to try other things.

    An outstanding dinner. I had their salmon and my better half had their beef brisket along with the best creamed corn side that she's ever had. Both meals, along with the service, were outstanding. We'll definitely be back. Larry Rushton

    What an absolute treasure of a find this place is! I was in town for a convention and BBQ sounded good. This place was AMAZING. You NEED to order the burnt ends immediately. It’s a classic BBQ JOINT but the food is a couple notches more upscale. Everything was absolutely fantastic, including the craft cocktails. Our waiter, who I believe was the co-owner, well…I want him to adopt me.

    Hello, thank you so much for your awesome review of CAYA Smokehouse. We had a great time serving clients from the convention that was in town last week, and we are proud that you found the burnt ends and craft cocktails to be so delicious. Our GM is wondering around and is frequently attending to tables; chances are he would love to be your daddy. Please bring in your adoption papers next time you choose to dine with us!

    Loved the pulled pork sandwhich. Not so much the fries. Rest of fam had the Alabama Yardbird sandwhich. They liked it, but found the chicken to be a bit chewy. Tator tots were better than the fries. Loved the Fried oreos.
    C.A.Y.A. Smoke House GrillResponded on October 11, 2022
    Hi Andrea, thank you for your review. I am happy that you tried the sandwiches. It is curious that you found the chicken to be chewy, and we are sorry you didn't enjoy the fries too much. We can cook them crispy or however you like on your next visit. We hope you have the opportunity to try more of the menu soon. Best regards!
