We had a full plate of brisket, ribs, sausage, potato salad and beans. The sauce is perfectly tangy with vinegar that hits the back of your throat. Loved it! Thought North Carolina BBQ was the best, but this Texas joint was really really good!

Texas barbeque as I remember from years ago when I lived in Texas. Great meal reasonably priced. No fancy trappings.

This is a bargain destination in a nondescript area. But the pork ribs were really good. We tried the 3 meat plate -- comes with a slice of white bread and your choice of sides -- veggies or corn or beans, etc. Beans by the way are pinto beans here -- not the baked beans of new england. The pork was the best, then the beef brisket. I'd pass on the sausage -- a bit dry. This is cheap, fast, food, served cafeteria style with no frills. But BBQ in Austin is never really bad no matter where ever you eat...

Good local place for barbecue. Brisket is consistently good. The smoked chicken is cooked well but not dry. I go there whenever I'm in Austin.
