    Got the 3 meat platter: sausage, pulled pork & 2nd cut brisket with homemade bread. Don't get the margarita grande tho- they served it in martini glasses. Food is awesome & view is wonderful!!

    Brisket & sausage were delicious! Beans & homemade bread were also really good! I subbed the cole slaw & potato salad for a baked potato, which I would do again. Overall, so good!
