We went expecting good barbecue and received great barbecue. The assortment of food was good and the restaurant seemed very clean. The staff was friendly and helpful. They even brought us ice cream for desert at no additional charge. This was a very enjoyable experience.

Excellent barbecued brisket and chicken, tender and flavorful. Potato salad unique and wonderful. Cafeteria style line allows inspection before ordering to select on the spot.

Sliced beef sandwich had very little flavor. Sides did not look appealing. The price of a sandwich and a piece of pie as my one “side” was over $13. That's ridiculous. The pie was good, but it appeared it was purchased from a third-party.

We stopped here on our way back from Colorado to Rosenberg for a quick bite to eat. The restaurant was clean, staff was friendly and the ribs were mouth watering, to die for! Definitely will stop here again.

At 10.99 for a half pound of sliced brisket Al's is more expensive than the world renowned Franklin's in Austin. Hard to see anyone in Big Spring standing in line for this near tasteless treat. Ribs were very good however. 33 bucks for a two...More

What else do you need to know? Had the pulled pork sandwich with side of some creamy potato salad and both were very good. You order "cafe style" so all the food is visible and you can pick and choose based on your likes and...More
