If you're a meat eater and like a local hole-in-the-wall, then this is the perfect place. The atmosphere is very much "oil rigger" and the smoked meats are fantastic. Be careful though...they charge by the pound and if you let yourself get carried away by the choices and portion size, you'll find yourself spending 20 bucks pretty easily. Definitely try this if you're in Midland, TX.

Very good bbq, good selection of sides, very expensive, informal ambience of a wood and metal shack. Clean, large eating area. I recommend it as a place to go every now and then, such as special occasions. You'll go bankrupt quickly otherwise. Limited parking.

This is by far the best tasting joint for BBQ! The menu is a little pricey but well worth the price. Get here early because the line to the pit where you choose your meat leads out the door. This is a truly authentic BBQ joint! Love it!

Our only regret is that we were only in town over the weekend and couldn't go again because they are closed on Sunday. Here's the scoop. You have to plan to go with some someone whose already been or be prepared as to what to expect. As soon as you walk in the door, you'll be picking out your "meats" from the bbq monger. So many choices of deliciousness ! So know what you THINK you want ! Meats are $ 13.99 a pound with a free bean bar, if you go crazy because of all the delicious possibilities in front you, it can be expensive. Meats are put on a tray with butcher paper. You'll think the tray is way too big for your needs, but trust me, you'll understand later.

Minimum meat cost per adult is $ 8.25 for adults and $ 6.00 for kids. You pick out your meat and move to the cost scale, where your meats are weighed and the price determined. If your too skimpy, you'll get charged $ 8.25 even if you have 1/2 pound. Water, tea or sweet tea ? Cole slaw, potato salad ? Once you've paid at the end of the line, the treat is not over. Move to the bean bar. Here's where the meal all pulls together. One type of beans but, boy can you dress em up ! Sweet onions, pickles, cherry peppers, moving down the line to a variety of bbq sauces, baked potato fillings (if you picked a potato from the bbq monger (priced separately) .

Now, move to your table and taste and sample all those flavors ! Think you'd like a bit more of the vinegar bbq sauce and those sweet onions? Go back up and git yourself some more ! Refills of your beverage are plentiful !

As your sitting around reading the wall decorations and thinking your at the original "American Picker's shop in Iowa, you'll be planning your next trip in without even having packed up your leftovers !

The BBQ is very good. The beans are not as stated by previous comments. It is a little pricey and like many Texas BBQ establishments you don't eat on a plate you eat on paper, that's pretty standard all around tx at the original/old time places. It is very cool place inside and the owner is sweet. There are pix of famous celebrities who are their on the wall. Very rustic.
