We stopped here for lunch because there was a crowd and obviously the locals know good BBQ. Counter service, very casual. I had brisket and pork and it was delicious as were the sides. If I lived in Odessa, I would go regularly.

The brisket was not smoked long enough. It was still tough. It was difficult to cut with a knife. The pinto beans were also undercooked. They were almost crunchy. They need to slow down and cook their food longer.

Very good bar b que! They trim the fat off the meat before putting it on your sandwich. They slice the meat when you order your sandwich.

Got the sliced brisket and hot link plate. Overall, a tender, smoky brisket with a good bark. Flavor was off the chart. The sausage was good at best, was a little chewy and wasn't snappy. But..it had a good flavor. The tater salad was very...More
