I had the brisket. The meat is good but nothing special. The main problem is what they use as barbeque sauce. To me, it was just mainly watery grease. My brother-in-law had the ribs and was well pleased with them so if I ever go...More

We stopped here for a dinner takeout on our drive from Seguin to Waco because my wife read about the joint. Well, I am glad we stopped. Big disappointment was that they were sold out of pork spare ribs. I checked out the beef ribs...More

It's not cheap, about $20 on average a person for lunch for 2 meat choice, 2 sides and a drink. Meat is sold by the pound. No plate specials.
