I have been blessed to live within driving distance to this stronghold of Texas BBQ for the last 14 years. When I lived in La Marque, it was right next door in Texas City, and now I am a regular at the Pasadena location. This is the only place I would pay for BBQ, Thanks and keep up the quality... More

Very Texan atmosphere, staff speak better Spanish than English. Simple, basic restaurant, where you help yourself, read from a menu on the wall and push your tray. The barbecue meat was fantastic, and that was all we wanted !

I don't like the BBQ sauce here...is bland and tasteless, which ruins the flavor of the meat for me. The only thing on the menu I like is their grilled chicken sandwich on jalapeno cheese bread, which is VERY good. One thing that bothers me is that they charge 25 cents extra for a take out order, because of putting... More

I went here for lunch with a bunch of colleagues. The atmosphere isn't great or anything, but they have an alright amount of room. It's kind of like a cafeteria set up to order your food which wasn't bad but just weirder than usual. I ordered a baked potato and man was that thing huge. It's like it was injected... More

You'll like the tender Brisket and sliced pork along with a very tasty sausage link but the sauce here is to die for.... really . Get some extra japolena bread and a cup of sauce to top off the meal.

This place packs in a crowd at the lunch hour, however, go hungry the servings are ginormous and delicious. You get a good value for your meal, and the staff is very friendly.

They know how to do it right here in Texas. Great food. Come right in and place order and they prepare it in front of you. You can eat it there or take it home with you. They cater special events. Great place to eat.
