By far, the best bar-b-que this side of ANYWHERE! Wonderful selection of high quality food that is against the law in 7 states! I'm just glad AL isn't one of them, or else I'd be a felon!

You're belly will be full and happy once you try this, the best BBQ in Madison County -

I ate here for lunch. I had the brisket, beans and slaw. The brisket was bland. The beans and slaw were good. The food is more expensive than it should be for the quality.

I went here for lunch with a local and it was simply the best brisket I've ever had! They smoke all the meats on-site and wrap them in plastic wrap to keep in the moisture until used. While the line can be a little long, the owner, who slices your meat to order, moves it along quickly. The brisket was very moist and had a great flavor. The potato salad was also good. As he slices the meat, the little scrap ends get pushed over into the baked beans for more flavor! They are only open certain days and when they run out they are done. Really excellent - will go back when I visit HSV again.

This place is literally a shack located in a busy commercial area just of the 565 Hwy on the North outer road, west of Wall Triana, across from a Motel 6. When we arrived on this first visit at 4:45, there were already people waiting for the place to open. You line up here cafeteria style and go down a line to the cashier. Seating appears to be limited with a few tables inside and outside in a screened in porch. We ordered a two meat plate with "hot sausage and brisket plus a pulled pork plate. Sides chosen were beans, potato salad and slaw. Al meats were very good to excellent, very tender and flavorful brisket (sliced to order as you watch), the sausage was not hot- just a little spicy and lean, the pulled pork was very good as well. The sauces are typical Texas style, runny and complimentary-not meant to cover up the meat. The sides are made there and are very good especially the beans. Although we rarely order deserts, we did this time because of one of the prior reviews. We got he apple pie which was excellent with a carmel apple flavor and an excellent crust. This is truly a unique family owned and run place. Not cheap though for two meals plus a sandwich to go, one pie slice and two drinks was about $42.00. I would recommend you check their web page on hours of operation as at this time they are open from 11-2 & 5-8, Tuesday through Thursday. They also seem to do a lot of carry outs.

Had the double meat plate (brisket and pork). Really good sized helpings. beans and cole slaw were good. I am not a huge BBQ person but I would come back with friends that wanted some. Overall, it fell a bit short of a 4 rating to me but it was close.
