“Great Food!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 28, 2012

This is a small local place that has great food. It appeared to serve mostly locals and that is always a good sign. Lots of locals there and half got it to go and the other half ate in. If you want atmosphere, go some place else. If you want great brisket with an excellent sauce, this is your place. We ate in and the sandwich was dripping with lots of brisket and their great sauce. Messy and finger licking good! Great food!

“Great BBQ”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 20, 2012

Very good local BBQ. This place is a no frills BBQ restaurant with great food. This is a place that is a must eat if you're in Houston and love BBQ. I normally order the three meat combo. You can choose from brisket,sausage,ribs and other smoked meats. I prefer the sausage,brisket and rib trio. The meals are served with pickles,onions and you should order sauce on the side (Local Knowledge). There are picnic tables where customers and the people in the neighborhood mingle. Good down home BBQ.

“Nothing Fancy - Just Good BBQ”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 29, 2012

This is no fancy restaurant. In fact most orders are to-go. Yet there are still a few tables inside so you can eat your BBQ. The meal is served in a styrofoam clamshell (because most orders are to-go). I've had the ribs, brisket and links. All were cooked very well. What makes the BBQ special is the BBQ sauce, top notch!
