Brisket on the tough side. Expensive, too. I guess it would do in a pinch, if you were running down the interstate.

When I'm traveling I need to know when I stop I can take care of everything I need to. I get coffee drinks and a healthy snack. If you can't find what you want here you probably don't really know want anything. And the restrooms are clean and well stocked.

Anytime I travel back from Dallas, I always stop here for their BBQ. The ribs are incredible and the service is quick and painless. Highly recommend this stop for a fill up for your car and your stomach.

Friendly folk. Great bbq, not greasy. Lot of variety. knik-knack shop smithsonian. Food and crafts. Diesel truck parking and fuel island. Wooden furniture bit uncomfortable. somewhat limited seating. No reservations..just go enjoy!

Ate bbq at many stops on our 1600 mile trip. This had the best barbeque, we wish we had some as good as this at home. The travel stop it was in was a great travel stop too.

We ate here on a Thursday afternoon while passing through the area. We were not sure what we would get at a travel stop/convenience store. BBQ was good. I had a brisket sandwich and my husband had a sausage sandwich. All meat was flavorful and tender. We would eat here again.

Daughter talked me into buying fudge as we stopped for a gas and restroom break. We bought small portions of 3 flavored to share with 4 of us. When we got in the car they all tasted like they had been there since last Christmas. Not good. But the restrooms were clean and nice so not all bad.

How is this place not packed day and night? My father stopped here on the way back from the NCAA Football National Championship game and raved about it. We decided to stop at it on our way home from AT&T Stadium and HE WAS RIGHT! Look, Texas Brisket is different than Alabama chopped pork and different from Kansas City ribs.... More

We stopped in for dinner and had brisket with sides of fried okra and green beans. They also give you a souvenir cup for your drink. Delicious and a lot of food for the average price range.

Thank Susan P
