“Love it”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2014

Everything I have tried I love. The only thing is they need to season some of their food a little more than they do.

“Great comfort food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 9, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

This place has great BBQ but it's the chicken fried steak that takes the cake. Make sure you come hungry.

“Solid Texas BBQ”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2013

Don't expect anything fancy here. Go hungry - portions are large! I ordered smoked beef stuffed baked potato and it was great. Enough for two meals - all the good potato fixings included. Friendly service and food came out quick. A favorite of my business colleagues in town and now of mine!

“Just OK”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 2, 2013

A typical BBQ-type joint where you order at a counter and pick up your order. The decor was dated and depressing. I ordered 1/4 smoked BBQ chicken with Southern green beans and salad bar. The chicken was good. I don't know what made the "Southern" green beans Southern as they did not seem to be seasoned with anything. The salad bar had only the minimum of what one would expect: tomatoes, cheese, croutons, onions, cucumber. Dressings were not labelled that I could see, so I guessed that I was getting ranch. On the plus side, we met there before we went on a tour of Houston Heights, and the restaurant did serve us all free coffee since the tour seems to be based out of that location.
