I was impressed. Got a recommendation during recent visit, read reviews. Not a classy place, but its barbecue! We shared the Mix Dinner and got brisket and ribs. The brisket was very good and the ribs were great! Fries and slaw both good and completed the meal. And got 10% off with coupon from hotel.

They had something for everyone (including picky kids). I loved my ribs and macaroni and cheese. We also had some brisket that was to die for delicious. You could tell that this was a locals type place since many patrons knew the wait staff. The only down side is that it did take a little bit of a wait (but... More

We needed food on Sunday night and this was one of the few places open. It was still pretty busy at 8PM and we had to wait for a table. Unfortunately they were out of several items including the sausage and mashed potatoes. The BBQ we ordered was some of the best we have ever had! Generous portions and inexpensive.... More

I was definitely disappointed in this place. I had just gotten into town and asked for any BBQ recommendations. I was told this was the BEST in town. So, my expectations might have been piqued a bit because this was a letdown. First, I was greeted with a stern unhappy greeter. It seemed since it was moderately busy, I was... More

We stopped for lunch on our way to Albuquerque and we're pleasantly satisfied with the diner. We shared a 3 meat platter, 2sides and couldn't finish it. Great smoky taste, sausage a bit salty but good flavour. Great country atmosphere, and great service.

This might be the best place in town. We were late coming in and everything was fresh. Salad look really good and nice size. My son and I split a 2 meat plate and it was plenty. Turkey was good also. Strange they serve no BBQ Chicken. Enjoy

Tried this place while visiting town. The food and portions were very good, enjoyed both BBQ sauces. It was very busy when we went in, a little chaotic even, but they handled it well. No beer or wine if that's something you want with dinner, but not a big deal.

We stopped in for lunch yesterday for BBQ. Very plain and homey inside with terrific wait staff. I asked if I could get a full rack of ribs instead of the rib dinner offered. The waitress checked with the kitchen and...no problem. So I had some of the best BBQ ribs I have ever had. Fall off the bone, very... More
