Their servings are plentiful, one plate is really for two people,they are so friendly. You actually have to wait in line for lunch and dinner at times.

We are monthly regulars here because the food is good and local community business. They tend to get busy but the wait isn't too long. Very homey and cozy environment, very eclectic. Ribs, turkey, chopped beef sandwiches, mac cheese, sweet and new potatoes, and banana pudding are our favorites. You can call in order to pick up too.

The food was delicious. Ribs just the way I like them and Brisket done to perfection. A bit crowded right at dinnertime,as expected. Kinda cumbersome in the food service line. It's all good. Affordable.

There is no place that competes with a Central Texas BBQ baked potato fully loaded with chopped beef. I eat there fairly regularly.

Best barbecue in town! The ribs are to die for as well as the home prepared sides. Lots of comfort food. Portions are enough to share and well worth the money. It is great to order ahead for a party.

If you love barbecue, this is the place to go, it's a bit driving if you live in Houston but it totally worthy. Get the brisket and the sausages, with any side. The food is delicious, the wait is not that bad.

We have been here several times. We always get the sliced brisket, coleslaw, potatoes and banana pudding and we get it to go. This last trip we had the baked potatoes stuffed with chopped beef, so good.

I live here and have eaten at this restaurant many times. The portions are large, homemade and delicious. The business is run by 3 generations of family members and is always busy so be prepared to wait in line.

My wife and I waited in a long line on a Saturday and everything smelled great. But when push comes to shove, the food is just okay. The turkey is solid, the beef isn't impressive, and the sausage is a big disappointment. Also, I've had better jar sauce. It was a touch pricey for BBQ so that made it even... More
