The porkchop is excellent and not something you find so often. The brisket and beef rib are ok, but don't require a special trip. Also try the pecan cobbler. Kind of a pecan pie in a cup, really good.

I have just tried their brisket, but it is tasty! I had them dunk it in sauce but it was not overwhelming. You can have it plain if you just like the taste of the rub. The beans are good too!

Absolutely our favorite BBQ. Get the pork ribs and have them dunk it in sauce. Any of the cobblers are amazing as well. We love bringing out of state visitors for a true Texas BBQ experience.
