Authentic East Texas BBQ

Brisket, red beans, potato salad and coleslaw, nothing better. Not to be missed, but not open on Sunday.

On our first trip, we had a sampler plate. Oh...my...God, it was fabulous! Next visit, we had the Daily Special and nearly licked the plate clean. Our next visit was brisket for days! And the Peach Cobbler was the BEST we've ever had. You have GOT to eat at this Mom & Pop whenever you go to Canton. Casual atmosphere,... More

Brisket is just OK, sides aren't very good. Building is dated and choices are limited. Meats are ok and inexpensive. Will fill you up if you're in a hurry.

Definitely great barbecue! We had the sausage plate with beans and Cole slaw, everything was wonderful. Owners very friendly. Don't let the outside fool you; this is a jewel!

When you drive up to this place it looks like it will fall down. The inside is plain but clean. All this aside, the BBQ is out of this world. Their meat is smoked by a widow and son who learned weel from the father who passed on a few years ago. The meat is tender and juicy. Well flavored... More
