The rain kept coming and coming so we took a break from the state park. The food was great. The service was friendly.

Texas BBQ is what they claim and they live up to it. First time visit, and sadly,my wife and I both chose the same entree (burnt end sandwiches). We did, however, choose different sides. She went with slaw and fries; I chose beans and onion rings (additional charge for the rings). Prices are great. Sandwiches were $7-10, depending on choice... More

We've driven past this place for 10 years and never stopped. Now we may eat here every time we're in town! We had the sampler platter which easily fed 2 of us with food left over. All of the meat was good. We had the creamy cole slaw and potato salad. Both were excellent (and I'm picky about cole slaw).... More

Well not much to say except that the meat was tender. It had no smoked flavor at all. I tried the sampler platter ribs, brisket, pulled pork and burnt ends. The green beans tasted like they came from a can, metallic taste and no flavor. The sauce was watery. The salad was good? ??

The parking lot may be empty but the food is really good and the beef brisket and the smoked wings were awesome. The food was served fast and hot. The best time to get there is around noon as there is not many people there. The service is good, the drinks are kept full and the server comes back every... More

We used Trip Advisor to find this great lunch spot, and Trip Advisor reviewers didn't let us down. Terrific BBQ by award winning cooks! It was a clean well run place and we definitely recommend it wholeheartedly.

Excellent lunch. Beef brisket was overflowing with meat. Yummy sweet bbq sauce too. Small inside, not a lot of seating, but worth the wait!!

My friends and I go to the LOTO every October and this is one of our regular stops. Best BBQ at the lake, and the smoked wings are amazing!
