My husband and I stopped here for lunch on our way back into town from Honeyville. I had their mini-taco with smoked turkey, jalapeños, onion, and pickles with queso, omg that was delicious! The service was great as well!

This is by far the best BBQ in the world. I have loved these guys since they were in their little trailer back in the day, and nothing has changed..... STILL THE BEST BBQ EVER

The real deal.Tastes just like home. Even had an old picture of the man who owned the Barbecue joint in my little Texas town. His place burned down 20 yrs ago . Must be old school to have known him. Great smokey flavor meat so tender it chews itself.

The sausage sandwich is sublime, the sliced brisket very good. Informal atmosphere and good-sized portions.

Enjoyed the brisket and ribs, tasty and tender. And they had my Texas brand of beer, Shiner Bock, went back the next day for just a beer. Enjoyed the informal seating and visiting with locals.

I don't really care too much for barbecue. However, I will use the drive thru, on the south part of town, to purchase a pint of pulled pork. I prefer chopped beef, but it is not available.

Thank you vbarthrobbins for the "Great Barbecue" review. I am happy to see that you utilize our drive thru for convenient access to our excellent smoked meats. If you like salads, try some of our Chipotle Coleslaw. It is a fresh and delicious way to eat more veggies. Enjoy! More
