I got in from ATL and decided to grab and early dinner around 4:30P. I was the only one in the joint which was great. The staff gave me the Texas greeting and the menu rundown, and I went with the sampler that had ribs,...More

This is real. good. BBQ. Well rubbed and smoked, you don’t even need sauce. The meats were also very tender. Sides were also traditional and well prepare, with several daily specials. The dining room is spacious and clean. As with most good BBQ restaurants, you...More
