Once we informed the gentleman behind the counter we had never been there before and we were not sure how his cafeteria type ordering worked he gladly assisted and even gave us a sample of the two types of brisket (fatty and not so fatty, but those are not the names he used) so we knew which we liked to...

We travel to Oklahoma through Dallas, and stop at this place almost everytime we make the trip. They have a great variety of barbecue options at affordable prices. I love it all, including pulled pork, brisket, and the best sausage assortment on the planet. The sides are also numerous and tasty. It feels cafeteria like in the dining room, but... More

I had the jalapeño sausage. But I tried the brisket. Next time I'm getting brisket. It was really good. They serve the house BBQ sauce heated. That's nice. Good staff. Quick service.

Stopped by today for lunch. Very family friendly & good prices. The brisket is ok... Very tender but not enough smoky flavor for my liking. The ribs are pretty good. It's like everything needs sauce to add to the flavor. But here the sauce is good. My wife could drink it by the cup. We're on a BBQ road trip... More

Worthy of the top 50 list. Excellent bark on the brisket. The ribs were the best. Looking forward to when they start packing their own sausage (the current offering is only average). Brisket was fork tender and well seasoned, no sauce required. The regular sauce was a bit sweet for my taste. Quality hickory smoked meats. Clean restaurant and fast... More

Yes, this is in a strip mall. No, you won't get linen napkins or tablecloths. If you are looking for good food, great service, and prefer that over atmosphere this is the place for you. You walk in and order and the server was very obliging to offer a taste or two and provide some suggestions. My husband and I... More

Good BBQ, located in a strip mall near the Main Street area, which actually is helpful in Grapevine because it makes parking easier. The beef ribs and BBQ sausage were both terrific, as was the pecan cobbler (basically pecan pie without the crust). Even the homemade rolls were great. I definitely would stop in here again.
