Typical Bar-B-Que set up. They have a wide selection. The food I received was not hot, it was okay nothing to brag about. Price was very good for the amount of food. It is busy at lunch, business stretch of 225 with no other choices.

We had been out for the day to San Jacinto park. Looking for some lunch at 1:00pm. My brother in law lives in Houston so h knew the place. We got the loaded baked potatoes, with brisket all over the top. and they were excellent for sure. All you can eat for lunch.

I was here with my colleagues for a lunch during our training. I really liked the catfish and shrimp they served. It was really great. The quantity was also big and I was unable to finish the portion. Thanks for an excellent lunch

Tasted homemade and was good, but guy behind counter ignored us for too long. No eye contact, I guess he was waiting for me to order......

Lived in Texas over a decade ago, and always loved going to the Texas City Grand Prize. Whenever I make it back to Houston, I make a stop to the Pasadena location.

The chicken & rib plate was my husband's favorite. Mine was the enormous baked potato loaded with everything, including chopped beef! To die for!

The brisket was tender and full of flavor, the waffle fries fresh and better than most. Staff was friendly and helpful even though I arrived 20 min before closing. I will keep it on my preferred list for this part of Houston area.
