“High hopes”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed April 17, 2014

Really this was the first bbq place we saw when getting into town. The parking lot was packed the couple times we drove by so we thought it must be good. WRONG! This place was gross. She said they had awesome catfish, it tasted like water and definitely not like catfish. One of the guys had the beef brisket sandwich which he liked but he eats anything. And we got the turkey sandwich which was ok but the bbq sauce tasted like tomato paste so that ruined it. Then I ordered the baked potato with ham and cheese. It was not the best but not the worst either. Until I took a pic to send my friend how big it was and saw the ham was kinda gray. The waitress was the bartender to so she had to flirt her way around the place before getting to our table every time she came to check on us. Needless to say we will look somewhere else for good Texas bbq!
