I love this place. I go there probably three times a month. The prices are great, service is fast and the staff and owners are incredibly friendly. The food is really, really good.

There really isn't much to say other than they have really good food at this place. It was a surprise as I expected it to be just so-so but it was really good. Standard BBQ options on the menu. Prices are fair and there is ample parking.

This is our go-to BBQ place. We just love the variety of foods that are available. The menu is not long and strong, but what they serve is perfectly seasoned and grilled (or smoked). The wait staff is always so friendly and the owner is often on site and comes to the tables for feedback. They do catering also for... More

Great food, staff really helpful and polite. Ribs were excellent as was the chicken. Decent portion size and even a life size cutout of John Wayne by the toilet. Would go again.

There are a lot of good Bar B Que places in Texas and this is right up there with the best. It is one of my regular stops. I always get the Pit Master Special plate, but the loaded baked potato is fantastic. The ribs are the best. I'm a sauce man and I could drink theirs. They have two... More

What a great restaurant. Great food, Great Service, Great Atmosphere! The BBQ and the Sausage were great. Not over cooked, or greesy. Just fresh, and tender. I will definitely be going back.

First time there with two co-workers. Ordered chopped beef with French fries. Beef was sorta fatty, but overall, it was pretty decent. Iced tea was yummy! Service was excellent.

My first time ever to have Memphis-styled barbecue and I fell in love. How hungry are you? Its GOOD eating; enough to warrant a weekly visit for dinner. Yummy!!! The links are delicious and you get your choice of regular or hot. The ribs, oh THE RIBS!! Be ready for the lip-smacking, finger-licking taste of their ribs. Oh my, oh... More

We found this place by accident and it turned out to be a great find! The food was excellent. The service was good and the owner was delightful. He wandered around the room talking with people, making sure everyone was happy with their meals. A couple of us had brisket sandwiches; one had the big Texas sandwich, and one the... More

Was recommended by a friend, and it was nearby, so I wanted to give it a try. Ordered the brisket and sausage combo. Must say it was some of the best I have had. Great smokey taste with a tangy sauce. I recommend also.
