Food was amazing, so much to chose from. The bologna is a must. The beef and pork were very tender. Staff was very polite.

So Thursday is rib day. Much to my delight. I got the rib plate. No letdown here. Great food. Great service. Ribs were perfect and sides were great as well. Griddle fried cornbread was stellar as well. Need to come back more often.

My boss took me here for lunch. Great choice, plenty to choose from, helpful friendly staff but best of all the food was great, best lunch stop I had during the two weeks I had in Nashville. Can't wait to go back.

There is a long standing connection between Texas and Tennessee. You may remember that old Walt Disney movie and title song, "Davy Crockett: King of the Wild Frontier."

Off the beaten path, and probably not an area many tourists get too, but they should. This place is extremely casual bbq. Pick your meat, pick your sides, move along. Don't miss the jalapeno beans and brisket.
