Best brisket in dallas do you like it w/ more fat, less fat, extra bark. Just let us know 1/2 lb
Shoulder Clod
Our favorite cut! Leaner in comparison to the brisket; w/ a stronger beef flavor. Ask us for a sample. 1/2 lb
Moist & tender, smoked for 8 hours. But why stop at a half
Just like the half chick but now you can share!
Lean & juicy pork chops, each one is about a half pound.1/2 lb
Dry rubbed spare ribs, smoked to perfection. 1/2 lb
110 year old recipe shipped from our cousin’s restaurant. Each link weighs 1/3 pound.
Just enough of a kick, but not too much. Made w/ real cheddar cheese & fresh jalapenos.

The closing was posted on our social media channels all week. How sad that you didn’t take the opportunity to walk around the neighborhood to visit some of our other neighbors, it’s one of the best dining neighborhoods in Dallas.
