“Best BBQ & Catfish Around”
Reviewed August 1, 2014

The wife and I drive 1 1/2 hours for the ribs and catfish. The pastor salad, coleslaw, macaroni & Cheese is fantastic. The sausage and brisket is very good too. The best BBQ that I've eaten since moving to Texas in 1997. Love it.

“Great Stop”
Reviewed July 16, 2014

Nice, clean, great food, and service. We stopped in for a late lunch before getting hotel room nearby. So good we stopped in again the next day for lunch on the way home :)

Good - catfish, pulled pork, chicken fried steak, green beans, coleslaw and rolls!!! YUMMY!

Bad - Corn (out of a can), big disappointment compared to green beans. Brisket had great flavor but was a little dry.

A must stop if on HWY 35 around meal time!

“I love their catfish!”

My husband and I, while staying at Winstar decided to eat here after wanting to get out of the casino for a little bit. The food was great and the service was friendly and personable. The catfish was amazing!
