My two sons and I were on a hunting trip and stopped in for lunch. We had done the same last year and it was very good. However, this year was different. We only ordered brisket, two plates and a sandwich with sides: potato salad and others. I ordered the sandwich sliced, fat end, untrimmed with extra bark. The cutter... More

This was a nice clean restaurant. BBQ and sides were good, not great, but a nice highway stop. The peach cobbler was good.

I have eaten at this restaurant several times for business lunches. The food is average for BBQ, sometimes the meat is tough, but flavor is generally good. Sides are pretty good, but nothing spectacular. Portion sizes are pretty large, so you do get plenty of food. I think the prices are a bit high for what you get, but not... More

I was in the area for a month and a couple of weeks and this place by far is somewhere you don't want to visit, people are rude, and the meat was very dry don try this place I'm surprised it's not shut down

We ordered two brisket plates and one of sausage. One brisket plate was good, the other a bit dry as was the sausage. The brisket and the sausage had a good flavor though. If ordering sausage, I would recommend getting the spicey sausage,as it really isn't very spicey as things in the Southwest go. The BBQ sauce was very vinegary... More

Do not be fooled by the big sign off of the interstate. I have eaten here several times and on my most recent occasion I was very disappointed. I ordered the turkey as did my friend. It tasted like pressed turkey roast. Sides are not worth coming back for either. Best bet is to eat in Devine and not waste... More

I had been trying to go to this place for 3 days ( hours always change) and it was always closed. I finally got to it around 730 on a sunday and of course they were closing and did not have any Ribs left. So I got the smoked turkey and it was very good!

Last dined here and reviewed in 2012. Since I am in Pearsall often, I decided to try it again. This time things were greatly improved! The restaurant was clean and orderly. The food was delicious. The brisket was lean and very tender with a great smoke ring and good flavor. The coleslaw and beans were also very good. The spicy... More
