Every chance I travel I like to taste the local bbq, Smoked shack is good but I'm biased, nothing can compete with St. Louis bbq. Smoked shack ribs & brisket are super tender. Turkey & sausage are ok. The green beans w/ tomatoes were my...More

As soon as we pulled up you could smell the bbq smoking. Enjoyed the 3 meat and pulled pork sandwich. Good bbq and not a bad price. The sweet tea was some of the best we've had.

I was very excited going on because this was my first visit to a Texas BBQ joint. Unfortunately I came away disappointed. We had a brisket sandwich and the ribs. The brisket itself was very good but the sauce was bland. The ribs were a...More
