Great Breakfast and very good brisket. The portions are huge so either you come hungry or prepare to take a to go box home. The service is excellent and watch for the red cowboy books on the owner/waitress.

The owners are fantastic, you usually have to wait (but not long) and food is large portions and always take home a doggy bag.
