    Both the ribs and mac & cheese not good on the day we were there. You can find much better in the DFW area.

    The 3/4 combo plate, the smashed potatoes, and the service (ask Mary to be your waitress) are extremely good.

    Honestly some what disappointing, the onion rings, beans and the jalapeño sausage were all great, the brisket and the ribs were subpar.

    I liked the chicken on the bone and the brisket. As far as BBQ it was alright...... Make sure to bring someone to the bathroom with's down an elevator and in the basement. Kind of creepy.

    I am not impressed with this place at all. Mediocre food at best and I can get better sauce from the supermarket! There is much better BBQ back home in St. Louis.

    Relative to cost it's merely ok. If you've been to Jacks in Nashville, this is nowhere in the same league. But service is excellent.

    Chopped brisket is minced as baby food. Turkey is very soft, but no taste. Ribs are good!!!! The BBQ sauce is awesome, and service is polite and fast. This place is nothing as good as Lockhart's...

    just go-FANTASTIC bbq, go twice if possible, the brisket was XLNT, the sausage too and the service was XLNT, order a side of pickles as well & warm buns to sop up their tasty sauce

    The pulled pork and pulled chicken were amazing.We both loved the beans, and his ribs were extra tender. Don't forget to take your bathroom code that is in your ticket if you need to use the restroom!

    Service is terrible. Hostess ignored me and once self seated at bar, took them 10 minutes to get me a menu and water. Food seems over priced as well.

    The rolls were probably the best thing here. All the sides tasted like they're from frozen foods you can buy at the grocery store. Meat was ok. Disappointing and quite expensive for what you get.

    One line to order. When you're next in line, be ready to step up to the next available register. Don't make everyone behind you wait!

    Really. World famous onion rings don't start off with flour deep-fried no seasoning serve on a plate. Maybe world-famous for not being good at all.

    They have a wide range of side items including slaw and onion rings. Everything is ordered al la carte.

    The brisket is sooo tender. I got a combo plate and they didn't put on too much sauce. The sauce was excellent!!

    Avoid this place at all costs major tourist trap. Way over priced I'd rather go to a real BBQ joint then this fakery.

    If you're thinking about eating here, DON'T. Worst ever BBQ. Terrible sides. Mac and cheese tastes Luke Kraft. Just don't go. Run to your nearest Rudy's.

    Cannot recommend it. I sat at my table for 15 minutes and ended up leaving because no server even talked to me. Weird. It wasn't even busy.

    Just eat the sausage, good brisket, good pulled pork .. Get your onion ring on, just do it ... Get the big beer ... BBQ Sauce is SUPER, and we all know, BBQ joint must have special sauce

    Friday "Pork Out" special--pulled pork, ribs, sausage, 2 sides and a drink--is good food and a great deal.

    Avoid the Rogge Dunn "Deal". $14 for two ribs, a sandwich and a side. The brisket and ribs were good, but not worth $14. There are better choices on the menu for the money.

    Ribs were exceptionally tough, but the dinner rolls were really good. Does seem like a tourist trap BBQ place. If you are a BBQ fanatic, it's about a c minus
