Consistently, this is the best BBQ in Texarkana. Great smoked flavor, not too greasy at all, reasonable prices, clean, cheerful atmosphere, great sides! Employees are courteous, and time from ordering to getting your food is pretty quick.

Dropped in for lunch and had their two meat platter with sausage and brisket. Both were tasty, enhanced with their tangy sauce and their sweet and smokey sauce. As a nice extra they have free pickles and pinto beans available. Worth a visit,

Order a pound of pork ribs and a pound of brisket. Both were acceptable, neither was really good. Friendly people, been here a long time, but they need to step up their game.
