Keep trying BBQ places in the area to see if there are differences.. YES there are. Some of the ads for this place are only 5 seconds, once you've been you can see why. Not terribly friendly and certainly not high quality brisket... Not worth trying

Came here for a little back to school BBQ with the goats. Was disappointed. Save yourself the trip and go to Salt Lick or Smokey-Mo's. This is a cafeteria style setup where you line up to order your meal...meat then sides then drinks. They do serve beer which is required with BBQ as far as I'm concerned. Service was fast... More

I love a good BBQ place and this place was just that. Their spicy sauce was perfect and I had fried okra as a side. My beef slider had the perfect flavor. It was easy to get into on a busy weekday and the service was quick and friendly.

I LOVE BBQ and this place is definitely a five star in my book. Everything was just fantastic. My all time favorite is of course their sausage ... It's the softest I've ever had and couldn't be better. I don't drink soda a lot, but I did today and the Coke was just as good as McDonalds Coke. Restaurant was... More

They have some delicious BBQ and great sides! It's very casual and you can get in and out quickly if you need to.

Maybe I got the last of the slab of brisket, but it was dry. The flavor was good, but I had to use sauce that I normally do not use on brisket due to the dryness. Their beans were very good, and their sauces were tasty.

Why, when you have this establishment nearby would you even consider s fast-food outlet? Friendly staff and amazing food make up for a tired-looking decor. A new favourite in Austin.

Had the pork ribs. The seasoning was a bit overdone, as in too much. The smokey flavor was overwhelmed. Good ribs, but not the best.

We traveled there with a group of 10 for a casual pre-holiday get-to-gather...staff was very nice and accommodating...had marked a long table for our use...gave us a 10% "first timers" discount. I had the brisket, ribs, and shared some sausage with my wife. The sausage was very good, not fatty...the ribs were meaty and moist...the brisket was also good...just not... More
