My cousin and I stopped in for a classic Texas meal, and that is exactly what we got! The brisket was super tender and full of flavor, we agreed it was some of the best we had ever tasted!

Ate late lunch today. Ribs were tough and little taste. Chicken was dry! Ok brag you ate here but barbecue is so much better at most barbecue spots. Also, very expensive!
