I haven’t been here for years, and some brisket sounded good. Kayla took my order which was the brisket platter and it came with lean brisket, a corn muffin, which was sweet and perfect, as well as two sides. The brisket was just okay. I...More

We've eaten here a few times, food has always been good. Plenty of parking, and we've always been seated promptly. Service has been good, prices are a little on the high side. For a chain restaurant, they do a very good job with their BBQ....More

Lunch with friends on July 4 - our wives appreciated the red white and blue margaritas. Food was good - not quite Rudy’s or Salt Lick in tx but very good overall. Would eat here again.

We have visited this location many times, the last three times we noticed a decline in service and the quality of food. This time around unlike our previous time when the ribs were dry, tough and flavorless our ribs were so undercooked they were still...More
