There is a lot of good BBQ in Texas, but not here. Sandwich was just OK, small portion,but overpriced.

Love their BBQ and their peach fried pies. So good. Great staff. They were out of the peach today but the apricot was just as good.

Anytime I travel back from Dallas, I always stop here for their BBQ. The ribs are incredible and the service is quick and painless. Highly recommend this stop for a fill up for your car and your stomach.

Ate bbq at many stops on our 1600 mile trip. This had the best barbeque, we wish we had some as good as this at home. The travel stop it was in was a great travel stop too.
