Anyone Remember Maurice's Western Kitchen In Glenrose?

Joe H. | Jul 27, 2003 07:25 PM

In 1991 I drove from Ft. Worth down to Glenrose to eat at Hammond's because of a mention in Jane and Michael Stern's Roadfood. I found Hammond's, ate there, and left disappointed. Several miles away I stopped at a joint called the Western Kitchen which was on the north side of the road. I believe the name "Maurice" was on the sign also.
Because of a "feeling" I went in and ordered a marbled brisket sandwich. The brisket was sliced about 3/8 to 1/2 of an inch thick and piled probably one and a half inches high on the bun. Even though I really wasn't hungry the smell of this place and the look of the sandwich caused me to eat as soon as I got back to my car. It was incredible! Just incredible. So much so that I went back in and got another. That I waited to eat. About two hours just after returning to my hotel room in Ft. Worth.
To this day that still ranks as among the best brisket I've ever had. Perhaps even the best but then I hadn't been to Luling, Black's, Kreuz (which I did get two about two years later) and a number of others to do a real comparison. But I did know Angelo's, Sonny Bryan's, Clark's Outpost and a bunch of others.
I haven't found it listed anywhere. I have no idea if it is even still in business. Does nyone remember this place or know anything about it?
