My last choice

Warning warning warning don't go there food tasted like it was out of a can. Horrible ! When we left noticed extremely dirty fish tank that wasn't in use probably for years.

New to the area, we liked the "country-like" exterior. At 6 PM on a Friday evening, the restaurant was nearly deserted. Now I know why. The restaurant did not "feel" clean, and the restrooms were smelly and pretty run down. My green beans had an excellent flavor, but the BBQ was tough and lack of flavor in the sauce. My... More

Dining area is dingy and dirty and food is bland. Much better choices nearby: Rudy's, Pappa's, Dickey's.

Sauce. ugh. Brisket....well, it made up for being tough by being burnt. In a city of great BBQ there has to be somebody at the bottom of the list.

Off I-45, Thomas BBQ seemed a very authentic setting and the BBQ beef was good and the sides excellent.
