Sausage and Ribs are excellent. Brisket, alright.

Went on a Saturday at 11 am. Do not expect a smiling, exuberant owner. He is very matter of fact. The brisket was average. Like you might get at Dickie's or Spring Creek. The sausage and ribs were great though. The garlic and cheddar mashed potatoes were pretty bland. The barbecue beans with... read more

Pretty decent BBQ place, only open lunch hours, I believe it was 10-2:30. Very crowded but pretty delicious and they keep the line moving. Served buffet style where you get to choose your sides. The cheddar smashed taters were pretty good. The stuffed baked potatoes are really good as well. The only thing that stopped a 5 star was that... More

Well ... we had high hopes. This is Texas, after all. The brisket (fatty) was on the dry side. So much so that I had to douse my sandwich with tons of sauce to make it acceptable. I suppose I should have returned it and asked for something else, but ... I didn't. Try elsewhere.

We went for the rehearsal dinner for a wedding. They had rented it out for the evening. The staff was very friendly, the food was delicious. The only problem was I got full to fast and couldn't finish.

Some months back I tried MA BBQ and was largely underwhelmed. Today's visit was different. I stayed with the sliced brisket plate and was pleasantly surprised. The brisket was tender, reasonably thick cut and filled with smokey flavor. The only thing missing was a nice layer of bark/smoke rings. I find that the cafeteria style presentation, especially for sides, provided... More

Best brisket in Dallas is what they advertise and I would not disagree. It is consistently tender and juicy, and the smoke flavor is pronounced but not too strong. This place is one of my favorites in Dallas. I wish I lived closer so I could eat here every week!

My colleague took us here while visiting Dallas. We had to stand outside as this is not a large place but it has a nice flair. It reminds me of high school lunch lines as you must get a tray and your utensils before you order. Make sure you speak clearly or you will receive something you did not order... More

Went for my first time for lunch the person who was working at the counter was rude and seemed like he didn't want to be there. He was like the Soup Nazi guy from Seinfeld. Got the 3 plate sampler, you cant just get 2. The Brisket was so chewy I couldn't eat it, the ribs were OK and I... More

This is by far the best BBQ in and around Dallas. The food is so amazing with such large portions. I don't think any one can beat there prices either, also with an unlimited sandwich topping bar. Oh yeah, don't forget to grab a Free Ice Cream Cone to top off your tasty meal.

Long line brings you to great tender brisket and different sausages to choose from along with plenty of sides. Hint - there is tasty jalapeño BBQ sauce on the condiments table after you pay - I prefer it over their regular sauce next to the meats. Peach cobbler it amazing if you can squeeze any more in after your main... More
