“Portions huge”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 15, 2013 via mobile

My husband had visited this restaurant 25 years ago and wanted to go back since we were visiting LA GPS got us lost so turned into a long drive. We had our kids with us. We had no clue how big the portions are. We asked a couple questions about the menu making it cleat we were not regulars. We all ordered full meals. Mistake. My chicken dinner was a whole chicken. Later heard another waitress suggest to a group that they order the 3 item combo and split it. Wish ours had suggested that. The food was tasty but we felt bad how much we wasted as we were staying in a hotel and couldn't bring it with us.

“Best barbecue this side of the valley!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 8, 2013

This place is a hidden gem. The barbecue is excellent especially the brisket. Restaurant is a little cramped but the service is great!

“Brisket to go: $32/lb”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 30, 2013

We order brisket to go, expecting it to be about the going rate of $16/lb. Imagine our surprise to find that it cost twice that. Was it twice as good? No. Was it good? Sure.

Sauce was simple but delicious.

“Soooooo good!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 18, 2012 via mobile

We drive 1 1/2 hrs from home to eat here. It was well worth it & then some. The brisket was the best. Chicken was a bit dry. I recommend the macaroni salad as a side & the white beans were great. Messy goodness! Don't wear white here. The barber shop next door is a great place for men's barber. We side jaunted there before dinner so my Dad could get a haircut- it was an awesome haircut. Back to BBQ- save room for pecan pie a la mode- you'll be glad you did!

“Old Reliable”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 7, 2012 via mobile

Good BBQ! A family favorite for many years. The food is very consistent and you won't walk out hungry. Slop on the sauce, it's real good. Lots of napkins required.
