Good food friendly service and reasonably priced. Only a mile from I-20 so easy to get in and out. Great barbecue sauce with meat cooked great. We are always treated with respect and made to feel welcomed.

While the hot dogs are ok and the onion rings are good we were charged $ .50 for a 6 oz cup of tap water with lunch.

I've been eating here for years. You will notice the place is always busy. Folks love the great food - especially the burgers with a unique chili sauce that is so great. Can't wait for my next visit.

BBQ very good....so is stew but a bit pricey! Other Sides are nothing special but filling. Service suffers when busy. Will try again.

This is a great local family run institution the barbecue is amazingly great as is the sauce. But the big surprise for us was how awesome the yellow jacket hotdogs are. A hotdog where the bun is lightly toasted with great chili on it is...More
