Classic hole-in-the-wall bar-b-que eatery. You order at the counter and sit on rickety chairs but the food is wonderful. Your choice of sauces at the table. Big portions.

While visiting Bishop, we were looking for some eateries. We came across Holy Smoke Texas BQQ. We came up to the counter and was met by a nice young man who took our order.
The menu by the way has an array of smoked meats and sides to choose from. We sat down at a table and waited for our order. As we waited, we looked around and noticed fishing items for décor. Also there are a few Christian items that revealed the beliefs of the restaurant. Hence the influence that came of the name. Our order came on trays and on eating the meats, one could tell that they were really prepared the old fashion way of smoking meats- delicious.

Some of the best BBQ I've ever had. I had the 'Texas Ranger,' a tri-tip sandwich. It had excellent smoke flavor and was pull-apart tender. I like how it is served dry with the sauces at the table if you require them. The wife had the smoked sausage sandwich - again excellent. Even the iced tea was especially good.

There is nothing fancy about this place but the food is very tasty and the beer is cold! There is the added advantage that the portion size of the 'sandwiches' is manageable i.e. you don't get too much, with the leftovers having to be thrown away or taken away in a box and fed to dog. We ate in four other places during a six night stay in Bishop but preferred this BBQ to the rest.

The meat was good BUT the strange way it was served is undignified.
Maybe if we were American we would give the place a better rate, but as tourists - the way the food was sereved didn't give any respect for the food. Paper plats, plastic forks and knifs......
- it's more a fast food restaurant with a price of a real restaurant.
