Lives up to the hype

Being a huge fan of Texas style BBQ and having seen this place on TV and read about it several times...I just had to go. No frill location and great rustic feel inside. Served the way BBQ should be, by the pound on butcher paper. Made a combo plate with ribs, moist brisket and smoked turkey... read more

Wow, what an experience. The beef is Prime and you can taste the difference. Had the need rib and brisket, unfortunately we were to late for the jalapeño sausage but the regular was very good.

the best brisket in Texas served in room blacked by decades of smoke expect locals plus occasional foreign tourists foreign tourists are fun to watch as they use kilograms other than pounds and frequently unknowingly wildly over order we saw two thin Chinese tourists who had ordered 6 pounds of brisket and barely finished one pound-when I smiled at their...

This is simply one of the finest BBQ venues in the world! Drove through Taylor on the way home too close to noon and had to stop. But with all the gluttony of Christmas parties and get togethers we HAD to try to eat as skinny as was reasonable. So we shared a sliced beef sandwich and some potato salad... More

We had a group of 15 people in Austin at the race track. We placed our order in the phone the day before.. All the food was ready to pick up at opening time. The place was very busy. We just went to the register & paid for it. The food was great

This is it. Texas BBQ at its best. The brisket was moist and flavorful, using only salt, pepper, and the smoke from the cooking. The sides are tasty, although I prefer a more creamy cole slaw. The beans were spicy, but the star of the show was the meat. Outstanding!
