It's a very nice and relaxed ambiance, family friendly. The food and service is excellent. There's a small store inside selling some BBQ stuff and signature spices. The drinks and condiments station were well kept and supplied.

When we return to College Station, this is the place we had for when we are hungry. Brisket and pickles and potato salad and sweet tea. What else could you ask for?

Had lunch here with my Aggie who is a regular. We shared brisket, sausage, potato salad and coleslaw. The brisket was tasty and tender. Service is informal. Worth a visit.

The baby back ribs are to die for - amazing flavor, tender and fall off the bone. Brisket is equally good, not to mention green chili stew. Grab your self a cold one in line and enjoy. In summary - OMG. Bring your big pants...More
