Some of the best Bar-B-Que I have had in Texas. The pork and brisket are not to be missed. Super nice staff make this an excellent place to eat some Q. Worth the trip form anywhere in the Dallas area.

Small bar and restaurant on Main Street. Smoke is in the rear in parking lot. Great Barbeque brisket, ribs and pork. Small menu, but worth the stop.

I walked in as a stranger and left as a friend. AJ runs a great corner resturant and bar. It's a good place to relax, and share stories with good people.
