We visited this place on Saturday 11/25 and everything was great. The loaded fries (cant remember the name) are awesome! The brisket was juicy and the sausage was good too. Definitely worth a visit!

The hubby and I shared the 2 meat plate with brisket and sausage w/ a side of swamp fries, we were both full and it was delish! I prefer more dressing on cole slaw, potato salad was good. Seating is tight so don't be afraid to share your table! The BBQ is spot on!

Had the two meat plate and wife had a sliced brisket sandwich. Sides were potato salad, sweet potato fries, and bbq beans. Meats were tender and juicy with a good smoky flavor. Only thing to improve would be to use filtered water as Jefferson's tap water is very bad.

Though located in far NE TX, we made a special trip to Jefferson to try this joint. We can report it was well worth the journey here. Their brisket is ridiculously moist, tender, and delicious. Their chopped beef sandwich is a very worthy alternative. Their pork ribs are just-right smoky, very tender, and subtly sweet. Those alone are worth the trip. The setting is what you'd expect from a TX BBQ joint and the staff is very friendly and attentive. The dining room is spacious and comfortable. You'll regret not making your way here for great BBQ!!!

We had the turkey and chopped brisket sandwiches and the sliced brisket plate..with fries and sweet potato fries. All was great and the orders were big and filled quickly. We were doing the touristy thing so it was nice to have a great lunch while here. Saw the ribs which will bring us back for another visit.
