Looking for bbq. The reviews looked good! Friendly staff! We ordered moist brisket sandwich. Good price however the brisket, while moist, still tasted dry. Too much rub! The meat itself was bland and at room temperature. The buns were cold! We were the only ones...there! Everything should have been hot! Presentation is everything! Will not be returning.More

This was a small cozy place more designed for take out but we found a place to sit and have our dinner. We wanted to find a place near the airport and this wad not too far. The staff were incredible and the patrons as...well. The food was wonderful and plenty for our empty stomachs. We wanted to taste the chili before ordering and they gave us a sample. It was really good however just a little too spicy for us. We had brisket and ribs in our group and both were good.More

Okay, I would give them a 3 star but the wife insists on a 4 star so lets call it a 3 1/2 star. Best item we had and agreed on was the moist brisket. It was very good. Not enough smoke for me but...that's just me. Wife says it was the perfect amount.. The pork ribs were good but also not a lot of flavor. Seemed to be made with a simple brown sugar rub but not a lot of flavor otherwise.The beans were very good as well, but not so much the potato salad which was very plain and lacked flavor. Now you see why I wanted to go with a 3 star rating.. Oh well, the little one is happy. Next season will stick with the brisket, beans and give the cole slaw a try. Small, only 4 or 5 tables that seat 2 or 3 people each. Clean restroom. Very nice and helpful owners/managers.More

If you love moist Texas brisket, this is the place to stop for lunchtime and/or en route home from work. A big hit at La Casa no matter the time or day. Sides are bountiful so no one goes hungry-ever!

Place was small but bbq was great. Friendly staff. Best bbq I've eaten. I asked for moist sliced brisket and it was perfect. The sausage was delicious and the corn on the cob was outstanding. Will definitely eat there again.

Absolutely fantastic, slow cooked BBQ meat. Don't let the surroundings fool you - this is well worth the effort to go off-track to find and eat at.
