I would give it a 0 if possible. I am honestly not commenting on their food, because it could taste amazing. (If fecal matter in food taste amazing???) I am only commenting on the unsanitary conditions that the food is cooked in. The "lady" there is feeding and providing shelter to HUNDREDS of FERAL CATS....as in multiple pet houses and... More

I've been eating the Sliced Brisket sandwiches for 40 years. The quality has never varied from great.

I've heard and read the hype about this place for a few years now so I needed to experience it for myself. Even though it's located in a small strip center, it wasn't very difficult to find. I ordered my customary three meat plate with potato salad and cole slaw. I chose not to have any sauce. I requested the... More

Barbecue places abound in Texas but the best hands down is Nonmacher's Barbecue which used to be managed by John, the original owner, & not much has changed since it opened in 1978. Once you open the door to this small restaurant of about 8 tables, the aroma of good Texas barbecue welcomes the hungry customer. It'd be nice to... More

This is a small hole in the wall that outperforms the big boys. Dont blink or you'll miss it but once you get there you will keep coming back for more. Best ribs in the area!

I noticed this place several weeks ago while driving through the area and immediately added it to my list because it looked very rustic and authentic. As it turned out they have been in the same location since 1978 so it confirmed my assessment! The interior is relatively small seating maybe a dozen patrons and the counter is about eight... More

Very good Bar B Que. Service good, price reasonable, can eat in or take out. The brisket is excellent. Ribs are also very good. Sides are OK. This is the real Bar B Que place not the fancy Dan's out on the freeway.

Cash or check only, but well worth it. You will find Briscuit, Ribs and sausage and excellent. Jalapeno smoked Pork ( Saturdays only). Sauce comes with your meat as well as pickles and onions. Sides are Beans, cole slaw and Potato salad, all delicious!

Good BBQ. Brisket very good and lean. Sausage original and not grocery store. Beans good, but potato salad just average. I prefer a mustard style. Not happy they charge extra for pickles and bread. The family deal can feed 4-5 easily.
