The pork rib plate had 5 ribs and came with 2 sides, I chose their potatoes which are like mashed hashbrowns - best flavor and carrot salad which is hard to find anywhere. They have several other choices - more than your average bbq place....More

Every thing shuts down at 8pm in Rockport, so we dashed in just before seven and had the best barbeque with sides. Very nice staff, excellent sweet tea.Gotta try them.

Great food, slightly pricey, but expected with bbq. They definitely give you your money's worth though and it's delicious. Classic Texas bbq and classic Texas atmosphere.
