BBQ is good, sweet tea is just ok, but the sweets there and the jerky are really good. Plenty of parking and they have meats that you can cook at home that look really good. Lots of variety

We had a group of a dozen. Service was excellent, and everything was clean. Food was very good according to everyone in our party. I had brisket sandwich and mine was delicious. Worth a stop!

Thought we would stop here on the way to Houston instead of the usual Buccees stop. It's beautiful and smells amazing and staff was very nice and helpful. You can find anything to satisfy but the prices are almost double, especially wine.
