All the BBQ is outstanding, but the ribs are to die for. Two types of sauce available- reg. and hot. The potato salad is the best you can buy; the mac and cheese is really good, the kids love it; and to top if off the blackberry cobbler is so good they will be fighting over it, so get plenty....

The place looks like a dump but its still clean if that makes sense.Its very like a fast food joint but with actual nice food. The guys working thereare friendly and the BBQ itself is delicious. No Frills its just all about the meat so for my first visit to a smokehouse I enjoyed it.

Visiting family and had take-out sandwiches. Good flavor, good taste, price was reasonable. We had over the top BBQ last year in Memphis, so as a quick pit stop on a visit to the Southwest, it was o.k..

The BBQ is good--not the best but good. The breakfast burritos are the best! We prefer to 'take-out' as there really is no atmosphere.

Excellent chopped pork bbq with a choice of sauces. Blackberry cobbler was very good. This restaurant has been in the same location for 23 years, offers a wide range of meals, starting with breakfast burritos. Its longevity attests to value received.

Still by far the best BBQ in New Mexico, hands down. Returned to Gary's place after probably a 5 year hiatus (I no longer live in the neighborhood). The sauce is divine, not too sweet but sticks to the meat well. The mac & cheese, mashed taters and cole slaw were good. The peach cobbler topped off the wonderful evening,... More
