We are Texans and we love BBQ! A family member selected this for us and it was fantastic! The Trinity Combination is enough for feed a family of 4, truly! It reminded me more of Tennessee BBQ than of Texas BBQ but regardless, it was great. The BBQ is thick unlike some TX BBQ. The pickles and the hot links... More

Have eaten here several times. Food is always good, staff is always pleasant and your wait for a table during busy times is never very long! Bar is fully stocked with anything you could want. Bartenders are very knowledgeable and never tell you they don't have recipe for your drink of choice. The meats are not drowning in sauce &... More

Stopped by on a Saturday night. Very crowded, but the very nice hostess directed me to the bar where there was seating available and serve a full menu. The bar was crowded also, but the turnover was quick and I found a table, near the bar with a great view of the guitarist/singer entertaining the patrons. The service was warm... More
