We have seen this on our way to and from Houston many times but never stopped until today. This is not only a restaurant but a store with lots of smoked meats and cheese, breads, pies, cakes, and pastries. There is also an ice cream...More

We stopped on our way to Port Aransas and will be stopping on our way home. The bakery is good but the brisket sandwich is the reason I stop here.

The foo d was adequate but the bakery is really good and offer a lot of choices. We also like getting an assortment of beef sticks and jerky that is made there on site. You can also buy gas. Go and give them a try

After reading a few reviews, we were expecting a sit-down meal at a good country barbeque spot. We were surprised to find instead a Buc-cee-esque place with packaged food in display cases and tables in the center. (Two stars for very nice, clean restrooms.) Sandwiches...More
