Horse Thief BBQ

We were checking out Grand Central Market on a beautiful fall Saturday (yesterday) and had lunch at Horse Thief. From what I'd read, I knew the thing to go for first and foremost is the brisket (as it's owned and operated by Texas expatriates), and our batch was, to my non-expert tastes, spot on and delicious. Great smoke, nice ring and very moist. Didn't have any other meats, but the ribs looked just fine. As for sides, the blue cheese and bacon potato salad was very tasty, the mac and cheese we all loved (it's not overwhelmed by cheese, and I prefer that "drier" variety), and I also really enjoyed the banana pudding (with a vanilla wafer base), even though I probably hadn't yet digested the banana cream pie from Apple Pan the previous night. Moreover, the space is awesome, especially on a beautiful day, since it's al fresco. There's a really spacious patio with picnic tables, right across from the Angels Flight Railway.
