If you are looking for Texas BBQ, this restaurant will not disappoint. I eat here twice a month at a minimum. Close to my office, so I eat here during lunch. The meats are very tasty. The sides of coleslaw, potato salad or mexican corn are a good compliment to the BBQ. I always get the brisket - either sliced... More

Fun lunch meal. Great BBQ chicken, turkey, pork. Nice selection of sides, not just your standard sides.

Cuts and scale are really depressing. Food has a great taste. Portions are metered but small for the cost. Bar is responsive and staff are friendly. Sides are typical, nothing special. Would change the scales and portions!

I have eaten here a few times and am never disappointed. It is a no frills place without a license, so soft drinks only. The food is excellent, sausage, beef, turkey, pork and chicken are cooked to perfection, you select the amount you want in weight and it is placed on your plate, pick up sides like slaw, beans etc...ask...

Stopped here on way home for take out. Got a two meat plate with brisket and ribs for $15. Portions were small. Ribs had a petroleum smell and taste to them. Brisket was dry and tough.

I ordered food to-go for me and my mom on a Sunday afternoon and we were hoping that it would be good. We thought we try something new and I always pass this place when I go to our local target. When I placed the ordered on the phone I asked how long will it be and the guy said... More

I liked this place. Nice cafeteria type setup. Get some brisket by the pound or a meal with sides. The side are great, get the Mac and cheese. I had the dirty rice too. Very good but you may not like it if you don't like some spice. Brisket was cooked perfect, nice and juicy.

Disappointing. Paid for two meat regular combo plate with two sides. Rationing out 3 pieces of brisket, a few pieces of sausage on a weight scale with a scoop of cole slaw and potato salad. No plate provided as well with an iced tea, all for $16.45. I'm still hungry. Will not come back again.

Twelve of us piled into this fun place for lunch while we were all swiftly loaded up with our choice of barbecue beef or pork, mac and cheese, fried pickles, fries etc. Great savory and sweet flavors, robust sauces, cheerful service and a very enjoyable time. Very reasonable price.
