Selma’s Brings a Little Piece of Texas to Moon Township

By Derick Woodward, Moon News Cloud Contributor


Although Pittsburgh and Texas’ capital, Austin, are more than 1400 miles away, residents can find a slice of the Lonestar State in Moon Township.

Selma’s Texas Barbeque, located on University Boulevard, makes for a quick meal. Moon is swamped with typical fast food options, and Selma’s is a diamond in the rough in Moon’s food scene.

Offering a large selection of reasonably price food choices, Selma’s menu includes ribs, chicken, pulled pork, as well as delicious southern fried catfish, all of which are also provided as sandwiches. If meat is not your thing, Selma’s also offers a number of great salads.

The people of the surrounding area have become accustomed to Selma’s food. One regular customer is Moon’s Dylan Farmer.

“I absolutely love the daily specials Selma’s offers,” Farmer said. “Everyday offers a certain discount on an item, and all of it is awesome.”

With such a wide variety of choices it’s hard for a customer to narrow it down to a single preferred dish, but Farmer believes he has a favorite.

“It’d be the pulled pork.” Farmer proclaimed. “It holds a special place in my heart when it comes to food.”

From the outside, the place does not look like much, but the inside holds a welcoming dining area and friendly staff that made this encounter marvelous.

I chose to have the Beef Brisket sandwich with Kansas City barbecue sauce, with a side of macaroni and cheese. The brisket was moist and delicious, and the mac and cheese was cooked perfectly. I also got an order of hush puppies, and they were tasty as well.

I recommend getting a nice big cup of sweet tea with your meal as well. It just tastes right when sampling some Texas cooking.

Open seven days a week for lunch and dinner, Selma’s offers an authentic taste of Texas cooking.
