As mentioned in other reviews, the food is pre-made with very few options and mediocre quality. The service is friendly in a fast-food fashion. I would not recommend to eat here unless you are in hurry and need to grab a quick bite on the layover.

During my trip home to South Texas from London I had a three hour stopover in DFW domestic terminal B. I chose to visit Cousin's BBQ little restaurant instead of the Admirals Lounge to try some of their BBQ sandwiches and I was not disappointed. I was also able to order a root beer with my brisket sandwich (neither available... More

This place is hidden at the very end of terminal B. You have to really look for it. There are not many choices, but what I chose was fantastic. A combo of chopped BBQ beef sandwich, potato salad, pinto beans, and a bottled drink. The meat was very lean(I often don't trust chopped beef as it can be fatty/grizzly). The... More

Not good, got a craving for some bbq on a long layover after I tired of the lounge food. Didnt yelp it and probably should have. This food is all pre made just sitting there under a light waiting to be purchased by the next hurried traveler, so I guess if youre in a super big hurry go, if you... More

I love this little spot to grab a Pulled Pork Sandwich. Cold beer in the place as well. Very tasty food on the go. Everytime I go through DFW, I stop at this place.

Needed a meal in a hurry so this was the place. Very tiny and most all the food is pre-made in containers. Your sandwich or whatever gets made in the back and its a normal portion. Brisket sandwich beans and slaw. $13. Guess that is normal. Good brisket

the meat was great - tender and juicy. I'm more of a KC sweet sauce person but the sandwich was very good and meat was piled high. The cole slaw was tasty - not real creamy which was ok. will probably stop in again when in that area.

The smell of BBQ brought me down the hall but the experience was disappointing. Ordered a brisket sandwich meal with coleslaw and potato salad. The meat was okay, sauce was thin. Potato salad was bland and coleslaw was limp and bland. Sandwich was pre-made so bun was soggy. Just are the meat. Not a place I would recommend unless you... More

Very casual and small, but the bbq sauce and pulled pork were both delicious. The beans were good, but I had hoped for a slightly smokier flavor, like the meat. Still, if I were in terminal B again, I'd stop by. Next time I'll try the brisket. While I sat there, 3 other people came in and ordered the brisket.
