Typical barbecue dive, attached to a gas station. When I drove up, I was excited. I was confused about which door to use, and mistakenly went into the convenience store first because there are tables there, but you order on the side with the picnic tables (which are all open-air). When I walked in, there wasn't much of a wait... More

We visited after a full day of fun at Sea World. We were super hungry and their bbq hit the spot. One of our favorite bbq spots. We make it a point when traveling to go to the best barbecue joints in the area. This is it! Fun atmosphere and decor. Great for hungry families after walking all day at... More

This was our first experience of Texas BBQ and what an experience, rustic, authentic, great tasting all round. In the UK we get used to ordering a burger, here you order your cooked meat by the pound. We had Turkey, Brisket, Ribs and Sausage all was excellent, as were the sides especially the creamed corn that was like nothing I've... More

I think I could live off their cream corn, peach cobbler, smoked turkey breast and their sausage. WOW! On this trip, my wife and I took my mother in law for her first time and we are so much we probably should have napped before going home. It was VERY good and worth the trip.

Great, classic, slow-smoked Texas barbecue. Quality is consistently good; Turkey is exceptionally moist; Sauce is outstanding; however, beware... It is very peppery. Sides are very good... Cream corn is excellent but kind of pricey; Staff is extremely polite and helpful. Military discount and their commitment to donate to the military is legendary and quite commendable. Great food, friendly people, clean,... More

The brisket had a good flavor but it was cold. The pinto beans and potato salad and barbecue sauce was very good. If the brisket would not have been cold, I would say it could have been excellent.

Yep, that actually happened. What self respecting BBQ place doesn't have brisket ready at lunch time? We were there around noon and thy asked us to wait 15m for brisket- turned out to be longer. After 30m we left. Might want to call before you go so your not disappointed. Otherwise food is pretty good. BBQ is everywhere down here-... More

The servers were rude and they got our order wrong. The brisket was OK but the sausage was terrible. They gave us a half a loaf of white bread - it was wasted.

I went to the original location north of 1604 on the route 10 access road. I have been here before the brisket ribs smoked Turkey and sausage is to die for. The creamed corn is unique and very good. You wait in a buffet line and the cut your meat to order. No plates meat is on waxed paper the... More
