"Philly's Smoke House--Texas Barbecue" has started advertising in Queens newspapers, with a "Grand Opening Celebration Weekend" starting November 29th. The restaurant claims to be famous for its "South Texas Saddlebags," so there must be at least one other already operating somewhere. "Everything is homemade," including beer from its own brewery. Listed specialties are slow-smoked sliced brisket of beef, pulled-pork sandwiches, backyard BBQ spare ribs, cooked-in-a-skillet cat fish, and Texas rib-eye steak with Tumbleweed onions. The address is 5-16 51st Avenue, Long Island City (one block from the Midtown Tunnel), telephone 718-338-RIBS.
