Loved the atmosphere. Friendly staff, excellent BBQ. The beans with homemade salsa are my favorite. Ive got to indulge when Im in town. Its the perfect amount of heat. The brisket is so good. I really liked the jalapeno smoked sausage. Im telling ya, the beans and salsa, are amazing! The owners are great, friendly and genuine.

I'm a big fan of the Rudy's restaurant chain and this is the kind of place that Rudy's is based on. Meat that's sliced to order and served on butcher paper. You pay extra for side dishes (although the beans and "fixin's" are free). This is an old building and the floors are uneven, so you might want to be... More

Loved the low key atmosphere and ambiance. The "cook" slices exactly what you want out of the large grill, and then off to the next station where it get's weighed for payment. I spend over $30 for myself as I had "big eyes" and wanted to try almost everything. Brisket was spectacular, and everything else was excellent. Everyone I interacted... More

The food was not bad, but it wasn't anything it rave or crave. Price is way too high for average food.

A fun experience if you have never been to a Pit BBQ restraint before. Fun place with lots of yummy meat to choose from! I highly recommend the chopped brisket and peach cobbler with Blue Bell ice cream.

I have eaten at KD's several times. The bbq is typical West Tx bbq with nothing really standing out. My "beef" with this place is that it is packed during the lunch hour and you end up standing outside in a line that moves along ok. You eat off cafeteria tray and wax paper on picnic tables set up in... More

If you're a meat eater and like a local hole-in-the-wall, then this is the perfect place. The atmosphere is very much "oil rigger" and the smoked meats are fantastic. Be careful though...they charge by the pound and if you let yourself get carried away by the choices and portion size, you'll find yourself spending 20 bucks pretty easily. Definitely try... More

Very good bbq, good selection of sides, very expensive, informal ambience of a wood and metal shack. Clean, large eating area. I recommend it as a place to go every now and then, such as special occasions. You'll go bankrupt quickly otherwise. Limited parking.

This is by far the best tasting joint for BBQ! The menu is a little pricey but well worth the price. Get here early because the line to the pit where you choose your meat leads out the door. This is a truly authentic BBQ joint! Love it!
