We set out from the Marshall area on Saturday after Thanksgiving and were happy to see that Riverport was very busy when we arrived, around 2PM. Several tables inside, but can get cramped at peak times. Stay awhile or get your food to-go. The location is convenient and easy to find, right in the middle of town on a corner.... More

Fantastic tasty smoked brisket and turkey. I had the two meat dinner - very reasonably priced and generous portions. Great tasting potato salad and coleslaw. I will definitely visit again when I'm in Jefferson.

We had turkey, ribs, brisket, pintos, okra, fries and my introduction to hot water cornbread; all were fabulous. We live in the Dallas area and a couple times a year we meet friend who live in Humble, TX someplace that's about a three hour drive for each of us for a long weekend. This meal we had ranked as the... More

MY husband REALLY likes this place. We visited it a couple of times. It has been 2 years and we still think of it.

This place is not fancy but the staff are super friendly and the food is amazingly delicious. One of the employees told us the brisket was rated 2nd in the state. Considering how big Texas is- that is quite a feat! It was by far the best brisket I have had. Come early- before they run out!

Everyone that I dined with at lunch enjoyed what they got. There were 5 of us and we all got something different. Everything was so good. I live about 45 minutes to an hour away and I would make the drive just to eat there.

We stopped here while in town. The employees were friendly. The food was good. My daughter got rib basket, great deal she got about 4/5 ribs and side for $10. And I got the sliced bbq sandwich combo. All our food was pretty good. Good portions and the meats were tender. Was a little hard to find a seat. But... More

This is a very informal place to eat barbecue with speedy service. We had ribs and sandwiches with all the trimmings! Delicious and not expensive.

BBQ restaurants come and go these days, but this one stands out above them all! From their tasty pulled pork, to their tender brisket and ribs, this place has food to satisfy the hungriest! I highly recommend it to anyone with an appetite!
