Our first visit met all our expectations and confirmed all the positive reviews. Beat most of the dinner crowd so service and food delivery were very prompt, but expect the crowds could be challenging a bit later. The simple slaw was a treat, the same...More

A lot bigger than I thought and was actually more like a compound. Great food even though it's not real close to Austin.

This is truly the best BBQ ever. The food is so good. When you walk in you can see the pit. The portions are pretty big. I got pulled pork and ribs which were really good. Then for dessert I had a slice of chocolate...More

First and foremost, this place is CASH ONLY!!!! I’m not surprised, given that cell phone reception is so spotty (non-existent for some). Other Quick Info: *ATTIRE – Come as you are (just no formal dress, that’s too much) *BYO (winery located on site although I...More

Yes, they allow dogs. But only on the outside patio and they must be on a leash. The outdoors is where they have the music so it's not all bad except in the Summer when it can reach 100° out there and 90° at night.
