If you are looking for being waited on, don't come here. If you are looking for good BBQ with no frills this is where you should go. There was a line when we got there which was good as it gave us time to read the menu written on the wall. I thought it was a little pricey but the... read more

For a takeout BBQ place, this was a pretty good place. It seemed like a local favorite since we just beat a very long line out to the parking lot. The beers were cheap and the prices were very reasonable. They were pretty fast based on the line they had. The Texas Taco was really good !

There is no wait staff so you order at counter & find a table. Stopped here twice. First time enjoyed the excellent pulled pork although you may want to have them hold the funky sauce they suggest & go with the varieties of sauce available at the tables. Second time got the "el cheapo" special, smoked sauce wrapped in a... More

I love bbq and was looking forward to this place, however it falls way short. The pulled pork was salty and lacked any real smokey flavor. It had a cherry sauce on it that was candy sweet and just very odd. I got a side of potatoe salad that was mostly just a cup of mayo with a unimpressive taste.... More

Average at best. If your ever in East Texas, try Hemphill BBQ, now that's good TEXAS BBQ!!! The slaw was tastless, I had the pulled pork, it was ok, the sauce was not for me, tasted like a store brand mixed with, who knows what ???

Ordered the dinner for two which has a variety of their meats. The sausage, pulled pork, and ribs were actually pretty good. The brisket was dry, crumbly and nearly tasteless. The cheesy potatoes we ordered on the side were really good. The coleslaw side was mayo based and just average. Be sure to try the cranberry-habanero sauce, it's very good.... More

During our stay in Durango we were looking for someplace to eat besides a chain type restaurant and we saw this ( hole in the wall ) BBQ joint. Being from Alabama we normally do not expect great BBQ from outside of our area but the parking lot was crowded and we decided to give it a try. We order... More

Very good BBQ in a fun, casual atmosphere. It made us Texas visitors feel at home. I had the ribs. My husband had ribs and brisket.

Went with a Harley Group for Lunch. It was great...it is true to its name. Serious Flavor, serious size and seriously great food. We had the Texas Taco. Great taste and a huge portion. Along with the BBQ sauce on each table...it was a good stop. They handled a group of 12 with ease. Wherever they are, I will not... More
