When driving north from Mexico into the USA, or returning to Mexico, this is always the place I visit for a meal. BBQ is good and overall atmosphere makes me quickly realize I'm in Texas. Relaxed atmosphere and good food. Highly recommend if you like BBQ.

The brisket is good.. they have moist and lean. The lean is as good as the moist. Pair this with the sweet tea or a beer.

You stand in a line to order your BBQ, which is sold by weight. All the meats are cooked/smoked to perfection.

I do not even need their signature sauce for... More

and these folks bbq is as good as advertised. I found their people to be very friendly, and informative. They have a cute girl who meets you at the door and asks if it's your first time. She then fully explains how to order, and lets you know there are NO combo plates. You pay for everything. I got 2... More

This place has fairly decent tasting food for a chain restaurant. I would recommend it to others. It is fairly easy to locate and there is plenty of free parking.

Always great friendly & fast service. Excellent BBQ even if it is a chain. Never disappointed. Baked potato is huge & tasty, I normally get a 1/2 pound of cutter's choice Brisket that makes 2-3 sandwiches.
