As especially enjoy their smoked chicken and potato salad. At times the beef ordered lean has a bit too much fat for my taste. Also the sausage is too spicy for me. Others love it however.

Food very good. Staff helpful. Huge selection. Ample portions, whatever you pick from an enormous BBQ warmer. All cooked outside and brought in fresh. Expensive but you can eat all the BBQ sauce and awesome pinto beans for free. No one goes home hungry.

We found this place along Highway 71 on our recent travels to the Austin area. Since this was our first visit, we weren't sure how to order, so they helped us select our meat straight out of their gigantic warming oven. We chose bbq chicken,...More

If you're intimidated by the hours long wait at Franklin's or Salt, this is the place. Absolutely the best brisket I've ever had, in a cavernous, family style venue a sort drive from Downtown Austin. The Ribs and Sausage are good, but the divine flavor...More
