    Every time I come here the few open tables look like a tornado of cowboys rustled through the joint. BBQ is worth frequenting the mock FEMA site just don't rock the jukebox.

    Wings are outstanding but avoid the pork ribs. They're pretty dry and unremarkable.

    Guy visits this barbecue joint that uses only green mesquite wood or young wood for cooking. The owner swears by it for giving the meat the best and most consistent flavor.
