They had a $5.00 special on a Pulled Pork Sandwich and it was really good. They put so much meat on it, it got sloppy which I love.

The food is delicious. We purchased enough BBQ for 100 people and it was ready on time and fresh. The restaurant only accepts cash so be aware of that!

If you want melt-in-your-mouth pulled pork sandwiches at the bargain price of $5 this is the place too go! Also loved the baked potatoes stuffed with beef cheese AND sour cream

Walk up BBQ joint with limited seating outdoors. Good sliced brisket sandwiches made to order for $5, how can you go wrong? We stop here when in town and needing a quick dose of Texas BBQ.
