About as authentic as you can get! They are a cafeteria-style place with southern food. I am a Californian who barely eats meat but they were very kind and gave me a little sampler so I could try stuff. I got the roasted chicken- yum!...Get their spicy BBQ sauce that they hip up themselves! I was full for about two days but it was super goodMore

Love coming here. The best beef bbq in town. The owner slices the meat himself and offers great interaction with the customer while you are in line (that is half the show.....but as good as the food. Monday and Tuesday is 'go through the line...2x days' and you get double value. But you really cannot eat that much as the portions are so huge to begin with. Love coming here. Mixes businessmen in 3 piece suits with construction works. A real workers environment.More

You can't get real barbecue in San Diego unless you know how to do it yourself. This was my husband's first time out here and I wanted to find a really good barbecue place. The reviews were absolutely spot on. The customer service was fantastic....They were so patient with us, we had no idea what most of the foods were, let alone how to order. If you get the buffet, it is very inexpensive and they give you 4 or 5 different meats well as, sides. Additionally, if you bring back your toothpick, they give you a new plate and you get to start all over. We were full off one plate, but that is a great deal. The food was excellent. My husband was extremely pleased with the taste.More

Stopped here thinking, from the name and decor, that this place would be serving smoked bbq Texas style. Not even close. My first clue after ordering the brisket was an immediate “Which sauce do you want on it?” I always prefer no sauce so I...can actually taste the meat and this meat had no flavor and was not smoked but “cooked”. The cole slaw and green beans for sides that I got were little better....bland and flavorless. Actually the only thing that did have flavor was the bread..which was a cross between a cornmeal patty and a pancake. If you are looking for flavorful BBQ pass this one by....More

Rather out of the way but worth the trip.I got the sampler plate and it was all excellent. My beans and collard greens were very tasty. You move down the cafeteria style line selecting your dishes and pay at the end of the line. Good...deal for the price. I would return in a heartbeat.More

Some work colleagues took me to Tex's the other day; I did not want to eat too heavy, so a friend recommended the "light" lunch. For $8 you get 1 meat (I got turkey breast with BBQ sauce) and 3 sides: perfectly seasoned and prepared...collard greens, black-eyed peas, and spicy (and awesome!) pinto beans. I really enjoyed it and would go back if I end up in Nashville again for work.More

Best BBQ I’ve had. Ribs were delicious. Mild sauce is excellent. Kind of off the beaten path but so worth it!!!

I hit this place up about twice a month and it never disappoints. They have so much to choose from and it is all good. A lot of sides and good desserts. The guy cutting the meat is always very friendly and acts like he...has known you for years. A great place to eat for lunch during the week.More

Great BBQ shack, extremely casual. Get in line, order at the counter, spoon out your own sides, pour your own drink. Simple tables. They could have put some BBQ sauce on the tables ,or have it available (they had hot sauce, salt and pepper at...the tables, but that was it). Good eats.More

Went for lunch today and being it's Thursday they has the BBQ rib sandwich. I ordered it and picked mac and cheese and cole slaw as my sides. It was excellent. The ribs were tender, the BBQ sauce (mild) was good and all 6 people...in my party enjoyed themselves. Very highly recommended.More
