A real local joint with very good BBQ. As a city slicker from the North, I felt kinda awkward sitting there alone, but truly no one paid me no mind. I bought t-shirt for my dad and it smelled really nice for at least eight months.

Good brisket with a tasty BBQ sauce. Prices are reasonable and portions are large. Atmosphere is typical for a hometown BBQ joint. Worth stopping at!!

So me and a friend came here because he wanted to try it out because he had driven by several times before and he said it smelled great. So we took the 45 minute drive out to Hondo to try it out. It's set up like Rudy's where you can order meat by enpound, but you could also order plates... More
