Had the baby back ribs, collard greens and baked potato casserole. Yummy. Tried the sweet potato casserole and the slaw too. All good. Definitely comfort food.

I ordered two BBQ sandwiches and a pound of brisket. I told the cashier that I wanted marbled. I asked her if her cooks knew the difference between marbled and lean. She assured me they knew the difference. When I got home, I opened my sandwich and it was lean. I threw the sandwiches and beef away, and I called... More

We tried the ribs and brisket here and were impressed by both. The ribs were very good, but the brisket was what impressed us the most. Best I've had in a long time.

A bit of a hole in the wall that shouldn't be missed...as by the lines of locals upon our arrival. We had the pulled pork, brisket and mild sausage. All had a perfect bar b que taste, although, the brisket was a little dry. Pulled pork was the best I've ever had. They offer a variety of bar b que... More

Although somewhat of a hole-in-the-wall, the food is great. Brisket, ribs, pulled pork, sausage...not a miss in the bunch. Baked potato casserole is yummy and the sweet potato casserole is all the dessert you will need. There's always a line, so have your order ready when you get to the counter.

This place was recommended by a friend who resides in San Antonio, we trusted his judgment & decided to give it a try. We had the brisket, ribs & chicken and they were quite tasty. The prices are reasonable but they don't sell alcohol & I was in the mood for a cold beer. The place is small but the... More

They deserve their top rating as the brisket and ribs are very good. Went back the next day for chicken and they were out, so had to enjoy more ribs. Go early before they run out. Tried just about all their sides and they are just as praise worthy. Slaw is moist but doesn't leak everywhere and the chili beans... More

This place is e bomb-diggity for BBQ. Went with friends and we all had different combo platters. The flavor was outrageously good, the meat was all tender, the portions were perfect. Plan on about $15 for a platter with 2 sides and a drink. Brisket and sausage were some of the best I've ever had. Great staff handling a solid... More

First time they came out after we ate last time we got home w/ no fries in our bag. We called back manager TIMU said come back for your fries & comp sandwhich. I... More
