Passing through Texas. All the intown steakhouses were shutdown (didn't realize there were several brand new chains right off Hwy 40). Locals recommended this little red shack: "Not pretty but great food." It was great! Chopped beef, sliced beef, and potato salad were excellent! Cole slaw was fresh. Beans were OK. Service was great! Thanks to the guys at Starbucks for the recommendation! Loved it!

This is an old Amarillo barbeque joint that is well past her heyday. In the old days, she sported sawdust floors & a delicious smoked chopped tasty rib meat sandwich. Seating was little school desks you had squeeze into for a quick lunch. Today, the old stylings have been replaced with ugly tile floors, tables & chopped brisket.

The building is still interesting & the odors that greet you at the door do cause your mouth to water. The beans are still good & the potato salad probably the best in town. It's a shame though because the meat used to be so tasty as it was hand stripped & chopped from the rib section itself. No longer, for some reason now they just chop up some hard brisket with some fat mixed in, just like everyone else. it's just not as good. The sauce is homemade & the sides are all made fresh on premise.

The staff is friendly enough. The young man running it is a sweety.
