I enjoyed the environment and the decoration. I tried a big texan beef sandwich and I liked that. There were two Texas flags on my sandwich:) The staff were so kind and prepared our order soon. I will go there again.

If you're looking for great BBQ and huge quantities for a little $, this is your place. I was astonished at the great tasting huge portions at this delightful BBQ joint across from the Tech campus. You won't be disappointed.

When in Lubbock we love going to small local restaurants and shops. This place was great, food was great and the service was great. Employees were really helpful, with good attitudes and smiles on their faces. BBQ was really good. Also, bought some candy with worms in it. Great place.

We so wanted some great BBQ and the place most recommended was already out of good eats, so someone in the parking lot suggested this place. The meat was unflavorful and needed sauce to make it palatable. After reading all the reviews, it looks like folks go there for the ice cream and candy. Perhaps they need to expand that... More

This place was a great find. Amazing food, friendly people. Parking can be a little difficult being right across from the school, but other than that just wonderful !

Well, I ate it too fast to take a picture. The German sausage sandwich was very good. Paired with the sauces it was even better. Just had the nutter butter ice cream, it was amazing. Good spot for a bbq lunch with ice cream.

Been on a road trip for two weeks now. We've been passing seemingly endless amounts of bbq places so we decided to stop at this one prior to leaving Texas because of the good reviews and get the "GREAT Texas BBQ" the food wasn't bad but it wasn't good either. No bbq or smoky flavors. The only thing that saved... More

The first time I went was November 2014. I was soooo disappointed in the food. I decided to give them another try in August 2015. Food was so much better. The place has a really cool atmosphere, look and feel. You really want to enjoy it and the second time around we did. Staff was super friendly too.

The barbeque was good, but the beans were not the best. I would choose a different side if I went there again.
