Absolutely best beef brisket barbeque ever! Ate there 3 times in one week :) Used to great NC style pork or chicken barbeque, but this topped those. But what do you expect - This is Texas. Good customer service, nice restaurant.

I am a huge fan of the Brisket at Risck'ys, just so good. They also make excellent margarita's, although be warned they are huge! Of course this is not a fancy restaurant, but if you want goo BBQ, its the place to go..

Had two beers and the all you can eat ribs. The rigs were qute good and you cant go wrong with Shiner. The only things I have to say negative was each time they came it was only 2 ribs per plate; needless to say the poor guy worked out. I had

Enjoyed the brisket and beans at this location. Our waiter was very attentive and helpful with info about the area. Great place to visit while in Sundance Square for excellent barbecue.

I think this privately owned as opposed to being a chain. The BBQ itself was fine, I had pork ribs which were fall off the bone, but the chopped brisket was a little vinegary tasting. Once slathered in the BBQ sauce, which I hope is homemade, the meat is fine. I was disappointed by the side dishes. I had 3... More

We ate here twice on our visit. I had sliced brisket sandwich on one occasion and fried catfish on the other. The brisket was extremely clean as far as fat. I didn't have any fat on my sliced brisket which is how I like it. If you love fatty brisket, you won't like this place. Catfish was average, but they... More

Brisket was good, sauce on the side was spicy and came with cole slaw (good) and baked beans (not great). Big jalopania pepper included. Rib dinner was the same with... More

Stopped in for some lunch, was referred to this restaurant by locals. It was very crowded with a long wait. I took a seat at the bar, ordered a nice cold texas beer and the Hot Roast Beef Brisket Sandwich with Macaroni And Cheese. It was delicious. yummy to my tummy. It filled me up and I was ready for...
