New Barbecue Heads to New Caney

A new barbecue joint is headed to New Caney! Owner Allen Rhoden said he is planning to open the Rusty Buckle BBQ Company at 22664 Community Drive, New Caney, by the middle of October. The restaurant is located on the opposite side of the freeway from the Valley Ranch Town Center, near the Wells Fargo bank. The menu will feature classic Texas barbecue staples, such as brisket, pulled pork and ribs, in conjunction with his own specialty dishes. Rusty Buckle’s specialty dishes include Redneck sushi — a meal that includes breakfast sausage, shrimp and cheese wrapped in bacon and smoked. In addition his restaurant will also feature the dirty mac and cheese, which is smoked with brisket, he said. Other items include bacon wrapped ribs and beef ribs.The restaurant will include 45 indoor seats with additional options outdoors.
