My coworkers suggested to grab lunch here one day, and I'm glad I went along! The Pulled Pork Sandwich is great smothered with signature BBQ sauce on warm, buttery Texas Toast. Need I say more?

The food was really enjoyable and was a great rainy day outing. The service was okay - not very attentive or quick. If it wasn't for the horrible outhouse smell, I would have given this a 4 star review. Immediately upon exiting our car we...More
