This restaurant closed it's doors. A new BBQ place opened up in the old Merchantile building, it's called Mad Jacks. We did not eat there, but there were a lot of people going in and out of the joint!

Good Texas BBQ, Texas style. We try to eat here at least once when on the mountain. Right on the main highway within walking distance to downtown shops.
