The wait was about 10 minutes to order at around 1:20 on a Saturday. The good was outstanding and the BBQ sauce should be bottled and sold. The only thing that kept it from 5 stars is the lack of seating. There are plastic picnic style tables that aren't useful for people in parties of 2-3 without larger parties going without. Heck, the food is so good they can't help but be crowded, but different seating options could get in even more people, for example, bar seating along a wall.

Amazing brisket and sausage! The sauce has just enough kick but isn’t too spicy and the folks are really friendly. Will be back!

I am a native Texan and will tell you that this BBQ is the real deal! The decor is super basic and could use some help but the food was so good that it made up for it. Plan to get there early or you may miss out. They closed early on Friday and Saturday nights because they make a certain amount each day and when it’s gone they close for the day.

Drove over from Dallas one Saturday just because football season is over for my teams and we were looking for someplace to explore. Not much else in the little town of Jefferson but the BBQ was respectable. The ribs were meaty and large. The brisket was tender. Wanted to try the pork but they said it wouldn't be ready for another hour and there was only so much to see in order to kill that much time! Sauce wasn't bad even though I prefer mine a little sweeter. Pickles are very dill and sort of "meh" for a BBQ place. Refillable self serve drinks. Service was prompt and friendly. Bathrooms were clean. If find yourself headed in that direction or are bored like we were, it's worth a stop.
