We recently checked this place out. The food was great. And the baked beans are complimentary which we did not realize until after we ordered our sides. When you order, be sure to be clear on how much you want. We ordered a quarter-pound of sausage and ended up with a half-pound. The prices are reasonable. The place was super clean. The staff was friendly. We would definitely eat here again.

We had to survive terrible traffic and I was tired when we got there. The friendly service revived me a bit. The selection of meats was enticing. And when we sat down to eat, I think I went to heaven. Skip the sauce. They have perfected the dry rub, the temperature, the spices for each kind of meat they do. The ribs are the best, but the sirloin, the brisket, the chicken, the pork loin and the sausage are perfect, each one. The mild sausage has enough spice to it that it's great, the only thing we did not move on to is the jalapeno sausage. The mac n cheese is great, cheesy and not runny. The cobblers are fantastic, but get an ice cream cup to put on it.
The long tables give plenty of room, until the place is full (huge) and then you make good friends. Down home, but one of the best meals in existence.

We stopped in after walking around the Stockyards and had the turkey and brisket, beans, pecan cobbler. All very good.

Pork or Beef ribs are offered by the pound. My husband & I both agreed we liked the pork ribs the best. I must mention I was a little surprised that everything you eat is ala carte & pricey. The quality of the meat is excellent & we loved the rub. Neither of us cared for vinegar based runny bar-b-que sauce but we got it on the side. The corn bread was very dry & bland.
