Surrounded by chain restaurants galore, it's nice to have a good BBQ restaurant in NLR. There are better BBQ restaurants, but you'll have to go to Texas to get it. Reasonably priced, good portions and good smoked BBQ.

Fair enough Joshua. I'm a fan of Texas BBQ as well. My fave is Smitty's in Lockhart. Thanks for the note.
