Found this on diners and dives so we tried it. Lots of food good value, decent price. If we lived in Austin I would probably not go back, but for a visitor was a nice place to try,

Visiting Texas from Canada, we really wanted some BBQ and we found this place. It’s delicious, my boyfriend couldn’t get over how good the brisket and turkey were, and I had catfish which was incredible too. Very nice staff and atmosphere as well :)

Pretty good bbq at a good price. Just love their bbq combo plates. Ribs, brisket, chicken or turkey with a good side of your choice of veggies. Good full bar with booths and tables. Nice, friendly people. Been around a while so they are established....More

The food was outstanding, the portions plentiful, and all priced well. I recommend the ribs, hush puppies, okra, and coleslaw. We ate indoors the first night and outdoors with the music the second night. We preferred outdoors but inside was also fine.

Terrible service and the manager, Brian, was pretty rude and didn't seem to care much. I placed an order for some BBQ and noted that if the cole slaw had sugar in it, that I'd be happy without any sides. After 45 minutes of me...More
