Down on the farm looking tin shack with amazing smells coming out of it! Great ambiance runed by tables full of trays and used plates, glasses and silverware. Had the largest rib plate, (about 3/4 of a rack of baby backs) at a very reasonable price ($12). Found the rib meat well smoked, and tasty but too dry, all the fat had been cooked out of the ribs. The meat fell off the bone but the BBQ sauce needs some flavor to make up for the dry meat. The special sweet and hot pickles were nothing special, sort of bland at first then just hot, no sweet to savory taste. Sweet tea was good. Took a long time to get the food considering all that had to be done was dish it up. Never saw anyone come from behind the counter to check on the rest of the house, the several tables piled with the remains of other diners sort of spoiled the very good decoration and ambiance.

Ribs are OK. They serve you plenty of food at a reasonable price. I've had better in the Granbury area, and much better in the Ft. Worth area.
