The best Barbecue Brisket sandwich. The fried Okra was fresh. The beef rib was the biggest I have every seen. Bigger than Texas. The owner told us he bought his pit in Katy, Texas. He was a sweet guy and he knows Barbecue.

Hi, I'm sorry you were not pleased with your experience. My kids are there long hours and it's a lot to expect from them. We do experience meltdowns from time to time especially when we are there after typical closing hours as I believe was...More

This reopened after being closed a month or so. Decided to give it a try. Kind of expensive. For three it was over 42.00. Pulled pork sandwich had very little BBQ sauce and had a lot of those stingy tendons which totally grossed me out....More
