Has a hokey atmosphere, but friendly service and excellent food. I liked that they had different portions sizes to choose from. I don' t eat large portions so the single serving of Texas brisket with side of red beans and rice, cole slaw, and corn bread was the perfect amount. Many sides to choose from. The brisket was flavorful and enhanced with a touch of their spicy sauce. Not overpriced.

BBQ was really good and the service was excellent. There was a good selection of beers available. The restaurant is a little small and it fills up quick so it's best to get there early. We ate the brisket, pulled pork, baked beans, and green beans. All were amazingly delicious!

This place is very busy whenever you go. Usually there is a line, on weekends even up to 1 hour. Food is delicious. We ordered the platter with 3 meats of your choice which was $17.95. There is plenty of meat on the platter, it comes with 2 sides and a cornbread. You can share! The burgers and steaks were great too. You have a choice of 4 BBQ sauces invented by the owner, all super tasty. Large portions, definitely worth trying.

It has been awhile since I've had BBQ. I've found it is usually either really good or really not...rarely in between. This place was great. Brisket and cornbread. Yum!

I believe that this restaurant is a bit overrated on Trip Advisor. The food is good but not great. Probably on a par with the chain "Famous Dave's". Not really any better and in some ways not as good.

Service was very good and prompt. Prices were inexpensive.

All in all, good but not great. Certainly not worth waiting for a table or going out of your way.
