    MY FAVE BBQ around. Warning: you will leave smelling like mesquite after standing in line to pick out your meat from the pit bbq!

    You pay by the pound and it's all good, so don't get too much! They usually give you a little more than you ask for.

    Recipe for lunch food coma: Order the lunch special. Get the cheese jalapeno bread for the sandwich and grab a banana pudding before checking out to ensure maximum loss of consciousness.

    This place is a great, family-friendly, authentic mesquite grilled BBQ place. The sausage is awesome and the chicken wrapped in jalepeno, bacon and onion is juicy and just perfect. Highly reccommend!

    The food is average..but if u like overcooked meat & leaving a restaurant and you smell like you just survived a house fire then this is the place for you!

    The secret here is to order by the quarter pound. A full lb can get expensive. Plenty to choose from. A true Texas BBQ gem but it's not your South Dallas type BBQ taste. Weekly brisket sandwich deal.

    After reading several 5 star reviews I made the visit. Weekly brisket sandwich w/chips & drink $7 (enough for 2 sandwiches), amazing smoked sausage. On Fridays the wait is 25 mins long. I give 5 stars

    If the brisket is fresh, go for it. The turkey is awesome. Corn is better without butter. Sweet tea is awesome. Fries are huge but awesome. Beer selection is rubbish, especially for a Texas BBQ joint
