    make sure you have your whole party with you before you go to get seated, otherwise they will leave you in the hot sun waiting till your party all arrives. They won't even let you wait at the bar.

    During SXSW the bar under the restaurant past sound boards is empty and also great place to charge your phone.

    Great food but don't go in big groups. They have a very weird system of splitting tickets.

    The spare ribs and brisket are a must. Pass when it comes to the hot links and coleslaw though.

    Opened in 1968 in Lubbock, Willie Nelson, Johnny Cash, Muddy Waters, BB King and Stevie Ray Vaughn have all played, and eaten, there - and all sat back and said "Wow, those were some good ribs."

    One of the few venues in town that always seems to stick to their schedule. So get there early. They start and end on time every time. – Laura B.
