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

30 year Houstonian customer to and from the valley. Ordered pork and beef dried sausage, clueless teenager gave me regular pork and beef sausage with dried pricing. Establishment is mismanaged living on past reputation.

When we are driving on 59 this is our stop for BBQ and jerky. The chopped brisket sandwich is a must and a slice of marbled cheese. We purchase the thick jerky, we enjoy the peppered bison, turkey, and beef.

BBQ is good, sweet tea is just ok, but the sweets there and the jerky are really good. Plenty of parking and they have meats that you can cook at home that look really good. Lots of variety
