The stand out from this meal for me was the BBQ sauce. I moved from Texas and haven't had a proper BBQ sauce in years. Most BBQ sauces I try taste sweet, are dark and thick like molasses, and have that bottled hickory sauce taste....More

This place sells their pork chops by the pound, which most of them weigh. Delicate smoked flavor and very juicy. I also bought a half chicken to go for next day's lunch. The half chicken is the best value for your buck. Family style seating...More

Very good barbeque. I love the way they cook the meat. The sides are delicious. It's a little pricey.

Sure 5 diamond dining is great and all but if you're in Texas and you want to dine like you're in Texas, this is the place for it. They have two giant BBQ pits from which you pick the cuts you want. All the usual...More

The porkchop is excellent and not something you find so often. The brisket and beef rib are ok, but don't require a special trip. Also try the pecan cobbler. Kind of a pecan pie in a cup, really good.

My wife and I tried some of most of the offerings. If you are local you could have multiple trips, but this was our only chance. You pick your meat then they cut and weigh it for you and you pick your sides. Beef brisket...More
