Got sliced brisket and rib tips. While flavorful, both were dry. The hoss potato on the other hand was delicious

As native Texans we looked forward to trying out this restaurant, and we enjoyed our meal. We both ate sliced beef brisket, a Texas favorite, and I added some pulled pork. Traditional sides of cole slaw, baked beans, potato salad, and green beans were available. I didn't see any french fries on the menu. One mild and one spicy sauce was at each table, so that customers could add their preferred amounts. Everything tasted good. There were lots of Texas license plates and posters on the wall, but also an Indianapolis Colts banner for good measure. This restaurant is right next to the circle monument downtown.

I was disappointed this time. I had a taste for bbq wings. I stopped because it’s one of my fav wing and rib tip places. The wings were not good at all. They were tough like rubber with no flavor. I was so disappointed. If I had just gotten wings, the rating would have been a 1. But the other food was good.

Wow. Seriously. WOW. Smoked baked potato loaded with bacon, brisket, sour cream, cheese... yes please. This was excellent. Quickly delivered to our hotel, and the drink was still cold. Texas toast was good, could use a little more butter. But YUM
