I had the chopped sandwich and it was delicious but I was sad they didn't sell chicken. Other than that I loved it and the hospitality was so welcoming

We love stopping here when passing through. Local goods, candy, and snacks. Fountain sodas with a unique and interesting selection of bottled pops. Hot fried pies. Friendly staff and quick service. Clean restrooms and big rig parking. Worth the trip.

Very good BBQ. Good smoke taste. Good rub flavor. Could have been a little more tender. Sides were very good too. Service was fast. The place is small but worth it.

The old rule is, if it is Texas gas station BBQ it is going to be some of the best you ever had. Point proven. We were off the Interstate running the “old” highway 75 just for a better experience. As we approached Fairfield, TX...More
