This has got to be the best home-style BBQ in this area. The one in Mesquite is really great because they are not afraid to load you up on the meats on the meals you order.

We stopped in recently and maybe my expectations were too high, but the food didn't impress. I tried the brisket and the turkey, and all I'll say is the turkey wasn't great at all. Brisket was average.

The food is fabulous, there is always a line. The dining area looks worn and a bit grubby. So get it to go and hit the park! The double barrel, stuffed baked potato is huge. Meat plates are good also.
