Reviewed 11 April 2013

OMG the food is absolutely southern and totally delicious. Not an amazing setting but don't let that put you off. The portions are enormous (Texan style) the sauce is to die for and all is freshly made. the sides that come with cannot be ignored, go on, give it a go.

“Great Food!”
Reviewed 28 July 2012

This is a small local place that has great food. It appeared to serve mostly locals and that is always a good sign. Lots of locals there and half got it to go and the other half ate in. If you want atmosphere, go some place else. If you want great brisket with an excellent sauce, this is your place. We ate in and the sandwich was dripping with lots of brisket and their great sauce. Messy and finger licking good! Great food!

“Great BBQ”
Reviewed 20 June 2012

Very good local BBQ. This place is a no frills BBQ restaurant with great food. This is a place that is a must eat if you're in Houston and love BBQ. I normally order the three meat combo. You can choose from brisket,sausage,ribs and other smoked meats. I prefer the sausage,brisket and rib trio. The meals are served with pickles,onions and you should order sauce on the side (Local Knowledge). There are picnic tables where customers and the people in the neighborhood mingle. Good down home BBQ.
