Clem Mikeska's Pit Bar-B-Q (Cameron, TX)

I usually take a quick pit stop in Cameron when I'm on the road from Dallas to Schulenburg. This time, I decided to make it a true pit stop and sample Clem Mikeska's.

Clem Mikeska's isn't a stand-alone building, but rather is affixed to the side of a Cefco convenience store. They have a drive-thru available, which probably works well with the convenience store location. There wasn't much to the interior except a few booths and a counter to order at. It was 10:00 in the morning, but they already had their side dishes laid out buffet style. I didn't sample any of them, but the fact that they were sitting out so early was a little odd.

I was on the road solo, and I was in serious need of some mid-morning breakfast. I asked the girl behind the counter what kind of breakfast sandwiches they had (I was hoping for a barbecue variety), since the menu didn't specify. She quickly informed me that they had already switched over from breakfast to lunch. Really? At 10:00? Even McDonald's doesn't start serving lunch until 10:30. Weird.

 

Despite my disappointment, I ordered a jalapeno sausage sandwich for the road. I got mine with no sauce, pickles, or onions since I planned on eating while I drove.

When I unboxed my order, I immediately noticed the big chunks of jalapeno scattered throughout. The sausage also had a noticeable amount of cheddar cheese embedded in it. The whole "eat while driving" idea didn't work as well as I had planned, so I ended up just eating the sausage and the bun individually.

 

I had high hopes for this sandwich, but those hopes were quickly dashed by the mass produced grocery store bun. The sandwich certainly could have benefited from a homemade bun, both in terms of taste and aesthetic appeal. I'm sure there is a local bakery in Cameron willing to partner up with Clem.

 

The sausage had a nice snap and a fair amount of heat to it. I suppose all that cheddar cheese made my sandwich somewhat breakfasty. There was a good amount of pepper and just the right amount of salt, too. I would have preferred a little coarser grind on the meat, but the sausage was pretty tasty nonetheless.

 

Although Clem Mikeska's wasn't top shelf by any means, it was a decent offering for a random pit stop. I'd like to go back and see how their other barbecue selections measure up.
