The Sampler...... Absolutely unbelievable! I’m from Dallas but have lived and visited every major BBQ state to sample their best. Well ladies and gentlemen.... We have a winner. The staff were professional and very friendly, made for a great experience. I’ll definitely be coming back.

Tender delicious brisket. No need for sauce, it is flavored that well. The owners are wonderful people. You feel like you are dining with family. Be there early because they do run out sometimes.

This is a nice little tucked away place in old town Waxi that has great food. The brisket and banana pudding are the go-to's. Only weird thing I found is that they closed at 7PM witch seemed a little early to be turning down business.

Some of the best BBQ around owned by fantastic people! Family owned and operated. They smoke all their meats and the sides are delicious and consistently what you go in expecting. Don’t be late or they’ll sell out. So good!!

The food was good. The brisket was a bit dense. BBQ sauce was different. All sides we're good. Small hole in the wall eatery. Next door is the Red Barn antique shop.
