“Yuuummmmyyyyy”
Reviewed July 21, 2014 via mobile

We were travelling and stayed in Bishop for the night. Had the Texas Ranger tri tip sandwich with the baked Mac n cheese and Cole slaw. Melt in your mouth tender beef! Best I have had with the spicy BBQ sauce.
The Mac was delicious too! Highly recommend!

“Impressive Texas BBQ”
Reviewed July 16, 2014

I was looking for something paleo in Bishop and this fit the bill. Inexpensive, convenient location, and great Texas BBQ style flavor; this modest eatery is great for casual dining and a great stop for those just passing through. Not only do they offer a choice of sandwiches with sides, one can also order only meat, which I did. I ordered a half pound of BBQ pork, had it sliced and served with their delicious spicy sauce and I was good to go. The service was quick and all the staff were friendly and helpful. I'll be back.

“Awesome BBQ!”
Reviewed July 7, 2014

I stopped by here today on the recommendation of a friend.
It was 1:30PM, it was still very busy. I ordered the Hog Heaven ($9.99) which was a delicious rubbed and hand-pulled smoked pork. It was served in a cup, with a soft french style roll, a pickle and a side dish. I ordered the coleslaw (pretty good and crunchy with a light dressing) and a small sweet tea. The tea was perfect without being cloyingly sweet. The pickle was awful- it tasted like a warm Clausen pickle...not a decently cured homemade pickle.
The meat was juicy, fresh and delicious- not too salty. the bun was great- fresh and soft. The available BBQ sauce was- 1- boring. 2-spicy boring 3 - ghost pepper freakin' hot and pretty good.
I'll be back.
