    Its good but there's far better BBQ in Texas.

    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.

    Great ribs!

    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.

    3/4 combo plate is the way to go.

    Great food great service, fries and pulled pork were delicious, I would recommend it if you are in the area.

    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.

    Loved the food. Order the onion rings.

    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...

    I was very disappointed in this food establishment , horrible food and horrible customer service

    Brian Keith · February 14, 2014

    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!

    Fancy new napkin dispensers. ;-)

    I'm just glad we got the onion rings for free. No bueno.

    Jalapeño mash potatoes.. are the way to go!

    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.

    Adam Garrett · June 30, 2013
  • Burdy M.

    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.

    Burdy Morales · May 27, 2013

    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!

    The ladies at the cash registers are the best! Be nice to them.

    Pulled pork was good.....onion rings not so good.

    Order the Pulled chicken salad

    Pulled chicken was super good.

    Lemon pepper wings are the best I have had yet !

    Not on the menu, but the Frito Pie is pretty great.

    Ted Skinner · December 26, 2012
  • Keven L.

    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.

    Why would a crappy bbq'd joint serve blue moon and not have oranges avoid this place at all costs.

    S Swam · May 28, 2012

    This place sucks service is terrible and the food was chopped into baby food save your money and go elsewhere

    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.

    Brenda Beeler · May 26, 2012
  • Andrew Y.

    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.

    Andrew Yeager · May 10, 2012
  • Chad H.

    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

    Chad Hartman · May 3, 2012

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

    Joel Wasinger · April 20, 2012
  • Joel W.

    Great, gluten-free barbecue. "Lose the wheat, not the meat." :-)

    Joel Wasinger · April 20, 2012

    Great place for lunch the ribs are the bomb

    Bob Gugino · April 20, 2012
  • Brendan K.

    Nothing like a good Texas barbeque

    Brendan King · March 15, 2012
  • Aimee A.

    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.

    Aimee A · January 14, 2012
  • Dion W.

    Our first time here … not bad. Baked potato with brisket was actually taste:-)

    Dion Walker · September 22, 2011

    This location is where Sonny Bryan's go to die. Their meat tastes weird.

    Cat Page · August 15, 2011

    Tourist trap. Instant mashed potatoes. overpriced. Better bbq in CT and VT.

    Chopped brisket and pulled pork. Enough said. Read more

    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

    Try the Drop Top amber pale... goes great with their BBQ
