I tried the sliced brisket when I visited and it was great. It wasn't too fatty or too lean, but just right. I believe they use pecan wood, which is a nice change from what you typically find in West Texas (mesquite). Their sides were nothing remarkable, but who visits a barbecue joint for the sides?

This town has always struggled to find a great BBQ joint. This beats them all. Great fatty chop brisket sandwich.

Not overly priced like the bbq in wolforth, this is definitely priced right and one of the best bbq joints in TEXAS period! If you don’t no what bbq is supposed to taste like then this place ain’t for you.

I had the pork sandwich with cole slaw and spicy red beans. Excellent! My husband had the child's turkey and cole slaw. Very, very good and a large portion! This place never disappoints. Since we were there last, the number of condiments on the table has increased. There are more waitstaff and there has been an exponential increase in customers! Well deserved!!
