“Small Place, Great Taste”
Reviewed 23 March 2014

This is a small , family owned, hole in the wall barbecue. At first you may hesitate but be brave and enter a very enjoyable meal. The tables are old and the inside needs a paint a job but that just adds to it's charm.
The staff is friendly and warm. The fellow serving observed that my wife and I were new to the place and offered us samples of the food.
The food is served on paper plates but with this taste so what. All the meat was moist and tender. The sauce was the right combination of hot and sweet. The beans were fresh cooked and not out of the can. The cold slaw was great.
Locals love this place and it was full but it turned over fast.

“Tender and tasty BBQ”
Reviewed 18 December 2013 via mobile

Recommended by locals and a solid referral. Went with the ham steak special, chicken and sausage. Worth making a stop if in the area.

“As good as NC BBQ (maybe better)”
Reviewed 30 October 2013 via mobile

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!

Reviewed 6 March 2013 via mobile

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