Rock Solid BBQ Joint

Always adequate, never poor, sometimes outstanding. Different things different days. All meat is open for your viewing, I just pick what looks best that day. Brisket will always be good, ribs can vary from day to day. Great sides and great prices. Go there!!

We have been coming here to dine-in or takeout on a regular basis for many years. We are always particularly happy with their brisket and ribs as well as the sides. We also like the jalapeno sausages. Our out-of-town relatives make sure we stop here at least once during their stay! The other 2 locations we've found are not as... More

Excellent flavor and always wonderful. Great place for big groups and family outings. We have them cater a lot and we pick up large orders from them almost once a month.

Have as much or as little as you like but more is better. Always go when your hungry because there are lots of great choices. None will disappoint. Brisket, ribs, sausage, turkey, and an assortment of your favorite sides. Enjoy

I like this one better than the one on the bend in Bryan for some reason. Everything seems fresher at this location. They give you your money's worth.

Not the best BBQ I've ever had but better than many. Service was prompt and courteous. Portions were generous. Their brisket was too dry for my taste so I had to smother it in their sauce. It should have been able to stand by itself. The jalapeno and cheese sausage had no bite to it - just where were the... More

Went for lunch. Had brisket, turkey and ribs. All were good - not Lockhart, but good nonetheless. Each were moist and tasty. Had corn and Mac & cheese. Also beans coleslaw. All of them were good - coleslaw was the best - crisp and fresh and slightly sweet. The bar had pickles which were very good.

This is an excellent stop for the person who loves Texas Style BBQ. With the beef cattle shortage, I have seen the prices go up, but that reflects the world we live in. The meat is all EXCELLENT! The BBQ sauce adds a nice touch to the meal. Great place for a quick lunch alone or with friends. Plenty of... More
