Little bit of BBQ in Belton

Stopped for the night in Belton, Texas. Looking for a place for dinner, when right under our noses was a terrific restaurant. The sweet smell of BBQ waft over the parking lot.

Texas BBQ at its best. Although this place is a bit hard to get to because of the perpetual construction on I-35, it is worth the effort. I had the beef brisket and it was outstanding. Add yo that the smoked turkey and you have a great combination. For sides, I had potato salad and jalapeño beans which were great... More

Do not know how they stay open other than a motel is next door and it is an easy on and off to the highway (except now while construction is in place). I would compare to a Denny's. Price is not bad, but food is only mediocre.

I'm very picky, but we've never had a bad meal here. Two nights ago, we stopped in at about 8. We were seated right away, and attended to right away. We order a ribeye, baked potato and salads. It was probably the best steak we've had in awhile. The salad was fresh and dressings were good. It's not much on... More

There is not much near the Expo center to eat at. We got to the Oxbow and the smell was wonderful. We waited a bit to be seated. There was a waitress who kept running back and forth by our table. Others were seated after us and were waited on before us. We almost got up and walked out when... More

We arrived about thirty minutes prior to closing but the food was good and service was great. They do have a bar in the restaurant.

We were staying at the La Quinta next door to the restaurant and walked over for lunch. I ordered fried catfish and no doubt this was the worst fish I have ever had. $9.95 for four very small pieces -- undercooked and tasteless except for grease. More resembling pork rinds than fish. The hushpuppies looked so bad and pre-fab I... More

Folks if I had read the reviews before stopping here I probably would have kept on driving but I'm glad we stopped. After reviewing the Menus and making our selections my phone had enough charge to open the TA app and was surprised by the mixed reviews. Still by that time we had already been served some amazing iced tea... More

Way too understaffed. We waited to be seated for about 15 while others were standing on line trying to pay. Two servers working hard but overwhelmed. We walked out and went elsewhere.
