This restaurant is fantastic. The selections of meat and the way it's prepared is excellent. Traditional sides, sweet tea and rustic atmosphere completes the experience.

This is true Texas BBQ. Our waitress told us they smoke the meats for 2 days. The meat is quite tender and delicious. You pick out what you want before you go inside. We really enjoyed our meal and I highly recommend the pork ribs.

Good food with lots of choices it is sold by the weight so don't let your stomach order the food for you or you will get to much

I prefer to sit and order, but the meat in this place is extra special. You order by the pound with sides extra. We had brisket, ribs, jalopeno sausage, and chicken skewers. The beauty is you can see how much you are getting as they...More
