Stopped by today after 10 years away. Now I remember why I hadn't come back. Food: Brisket was almost as tough as shoe leather, and tasted to me like roast beef that had been sprinkled with sauce. Potato salad was bland. Beans tasted like they were straight out of a can. Flat and boring. No 2-meat combo--only 3 meat--so I... More

Its' the best in Galveston. Great country music plays. You order up at a window. Place doesn't look like much, but is very comfortable and very Texas. Wish they served biscuits, but save the 2 slices of white bread for the seagulls!

We have tried this place twice now, thinking perhaps we ordered the wrong items. Nope, the meat is just average, the BBQ sauce is just about the same. Lots love it though, so perhaps we ordered the wrong things twice. The service is well, you go order it yourself. Its fairly fast. Not expensive.

I asked locals for good BBQ on the island and was directed here. On the mark with quality taste and service chicken and pulled pork plate and lots of sweet tea. A true BBQ gym on the island
