A terrific place that lots of locals attend for lunches and dinners, Not a fancy place, more of a jeans and relaxed atmosphere where work clothes are the norm vs getting dressed up. It's a comfortable place and atmosphere, not very large dinning area vs other fancy restaurants but the decor fits the theme. Parking can be limited if its... More

I stopped in to have dinner, I was not greeted by the door nor did I see any signs about seating so I just picked my own table. I went to the back of the place but not down the stairs to a lower level. I sat 3 tables away from the salad bar. First time I seen a waitress... More

Recently ordered a LOT of take out for a birthday party. Staff was super nice and accommodating. RIbs were great - beef brisket, yummy. Pulled pork a little dry, beans nice, coleslaw average. Sauce - awesome! Chicken a little overdone. Anyway - with all that said I am sure if you eat in you will get great stuff like I... More

If you are looking for a fancy spot, this is not it. If you are looking for great tasting BBQ, stop here. It was excellent. I had ribs and my son had sausage. Both our meals were delivered quickly and the food was very tasty and prepared perfectly. I will definitely make a point to stop here if I am... More

I had a taste for BBQ and this was the perfect spot. We went with friends on a Saturday night - and didn't have to wait for a table. My husband had the ribs - full slab - so much food and not expensive!! Close to the riverwalk - which was a nice after dinner walk.

The ONLY authentic BBQ we have had in the area. Long time owned and operated family business. GREAT BBQ atmosphere, multiple choices of meats, sauces from Mild to Ouch! If you havent yet...TRY IT! You'll be glad you did.

We drive about 45 minutes to go to the Texan, at least once a month. Love their brisket sandwiches and their baby back ribs. The curly fries are addictive. The people working here are friendly and helpful. Although the place is in an old and rustic looking house, it's always clean inside and welcoming. You order at the counter and... More

In a very rustic setting (an older brown house that needs some sprucing up) you place your order at the small counter underneath a large menu in the front room. The cashier is helpful; this was our first time and she answered questions/gave us information cheerfully. Your food is delivered to your table---on a busy night, a possible problem finding... More

Order at the register and food is delivered to your table. Very rustic and shows age. Food is ok and nothing to honestly recommend. Cost is not cheap but then again you pay more for what you get.
