    You should order the rib eye special 16 oz

    Is it easy to say Everything? Yes, it was all great. The brisket was so tender, it melted in my mouth. Turkey, sausage were just as good. Well worth a trip and watching the pit masters was a treat.

    The meats are front and center here, as the entrance takes you right into the area where they are being smoked. You get your meat first, then the rest of the items for your order. Simple and fast.

    The Sausage, Baked Sweet Potato and Fruit Salad were delicious. You order the meat by the pound which was new to us. If you like beans, don't forget to get a cup from the bean pot - very tasty!

    Brisket, chicken poppers, jalapeño sausage, and the BBQ sauce. The brisket was not quite as good as Hutchins in McKinney only because hard eights had more fat.

    Everything is good but do not get chicken kabobs here. OMG they were so overcooked and dry. Yuck. Stick with Brisket, Steak or Sausage (FYI it's HOT so make sure you like spice) here.

    Good setup, walking you thru the cook space to order. All looks good but suffers from trying to spread a good thing to too many: tastes good but thin. Best to go off-peak times for their best stuff.

    The food is good. Not great, but good. Overpriced a bit. They use the sane rub/seasoning for the ribs and chicken. The corn on the cob was the best thing I ate. The brisket was a little dry.

    A tad pricey. Brisket was good Ribs were a little chewy and gristled. Roasted corn, Mac, cheese, cream corn were all bomb. Gotta mix the hard 8 pepper sauce on the table with the BBQ sauce. 6.5/10
