Almost feels like there should be sawdust on the floor - authentic informal Texas BBQ - their chopped brisket is to die for. Great salad bar also

Not quite the flavor of many local pits. Nice atmosphere and service. Wide variety of menu choices, and good deserts. Good place to eat, just not an outstanding BBQ place, for me.

Mid range price about $13 for a plate, sides are good. Order at the counter and food brought out. Sauces are good. Enjoy the food when we go.
