Small place, however the food is great. No grease, great taste even without sauce. Get there early, they run out of ribs fast. Peach cobbler is available ONLY on Friday and Sat. The mac &cheese is wonderful.

Don't let the looks deter you. Great BBQ. The ribs are my favorite, I usually take some home. One stuffed bake potato will usually feed my wife and I. Needs to be ranked higher in the 50 Best BBQ in Texas.

We pulled off 35 to find The Vault for lunch. It was easy to get off the highway, eat, then resume our road trip. The staff was very friendly. The brisket was excellent and the potato was a great combo. We will stop again.

Oh, man. We ordered a 1 meat plate with brisket for 2 because we only wanted a “snack.” The portions were more than generous and the brisket was just beautiful. Juicy and just everything you want from brisket. It was a joy to watch the...More
