Started with a coffee cup of the Best beans I've had in a longtime. Had the combo of sausage and brisket. Served with all the usual sides. Delicious! We will be back.

Stopped in on Friday about 5:30, just in time to snag a table for 5 before the wait line started. Our first time here for my wife and I and we were pleased. Water/ice tea served in pitchers per person, novel! A cup of bean soup showed up immediately and it was so good that I asked for another cup,... More

I was a little disappointed with this restaurant after all the good things I had heard about it. The brisket was ok but it was a small portion. The ribs had an overwhelming mesquite flavour and still had the membrane on. I will probably not go back as I have found a lot better BBQ in the valley.

The Bean Soup is still awesome but the BBQ seems to have slipped a bit. The Sides are pretty overpriced in my opinion making it overall a little pricey.

The complimentary bean soup is almost addicting but be sure to save room for the fabulous BBQ. Ribs, brisket, chicken or sausage. You cannot go wrong. If you leave hungry it's your fault! The staff are friendly and prompt from the moment you walk in. And don't forget any one of the delicious desserts!

Every time we drove by this barbecue restaurant the parking lot was so full. Being winter Texans we explore the area and finally stopped mid noon. They open at 11 am but no steaks till 5 pm. As soon as we ordered our drinks (served in a pitcher) we were handed bean soup in a coffee cup. The absolute best... More

You can't go wrong with the brisket! The beans are delicious and also the turkey. This place is always packed and for good reason - best BBQ in the area.

Very good restaurant. Croudy almost all the time. That is why it still better to make reservation. You can see some Longhorn Cattle in the yard!
