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 peppery enough for me. They do have two sauces - one regular and one spicy. I tried the regular and it was tangy enough for me. The condiments counter was well stocked and appealing. All-in-all, I would recommend Pok-e-Jo's because of the selection of sides...do ask for the okra to be fresh fried...also remember that you can get a large helping of dessert - cobbler or banana pudding for one of your sides.

Amazing job by the Pok-e-Joe's catering team for catering a successful holiday lunch at my job. The turkey was excellent and the service fantastic. Hats off to the team at Pok-E-Joe's!

Others seem to like Rudy's or Smokey Mos which is fine, but I like the sausage at Pok-e-jos. Much better. It has lots of flavor and not greasy.

I had mixed feelings. I should've thought "Chain Barbecue in Central Texas?" I knew better. Before I get carried away with the negatives, the service was friendly, my chicken was really good, there was a good choice of sides, it was clean and well lit. OK, only 3 out of 5? Why? The brisket. It was all about the brisket. First, they trimmed all the fat off. I know that's healthier. But, give me that choice. All the fun flavoring is in the fat, it's like eating a piece of birthday cake without frosting and ice cream. Also, it was flavorless. Wasn't good or bad. It just had no flavor. NONE and it was tough. I took a bite from my wife's plate & left the rest.
