Don't miss this BBQ joint if you're traveling between Bryan/College Station and Houston. It's kind of nondescript and sits down off the highway as you head between Navasota and Hempstead, but if your window is open you'll smell it. Priced very, very well for a...More

Excellent BBQ Sandwich. Loaded with tender tasty brisket & just the right amount of BBQ Sauce. Owner is a trip who obviously enjoys serving up some of Texas' best BBQ. Definitely worth a little detour off 290 to grab a bite.

This is one of my favorite places to get BBQ while traveling near Hempstead. The brisket is as good as it gets, moist or lean it is awesome.

Delicious BBQ within walking distance of the Capital building and other attractions. We enjoyed the chicken, brisket, Mac and cheese and green bean casserole. The sauce is yummy as well.

Typical Texas BBQ fare. Staff is family of owner and the owner is very hospitable. Good selection of food, except never has BBQ chicken which I wish they carried. I need to go when they are singing!!
