I’m glad you found us! I sorry our stuffed potato was a disappointment. We usually stuff our potato with chopped beef. We offer substitute meats if you desire. Perhaps, next time try chicken or even pulled pork or pork loin. Tell us to put the...More

Situated on OSR 21 miles west of exit 152 from I-85, this unpretentious BBQ shack fully deserves its spot in the Texas Monthly top 50. There are a few tables inside, and some picnic tables under an awning outside. We talked auto racing with a...More

The food is excellent, the place is small compared to the traffic of the restaurant. The food is freshly made because there is that much moving of their product. The brisket is excellent and on Thursday they also have prime rib.

Appearances are deceiving. This shack cooks up some of the best BBQ that I have had in Texas, aka the world. The brisket had a nice distinctive flavor, on top of the traditional smoke. The pulled pork was nicely spiced and moist. Make the trip...More

Friday afternoon and no line, how did we get so lucky? The brisket was excellent with a great bark. The sausage was average but the ribs were very good. They only have two inside tables, so be prepared to picnic outside if they are busy.

This is a great place for BBQ. Check days and hours of operation - they are not open every day. Our favorite item is the smoked turkey - very moist and flavorful. It is not unusual for items to sell out, so call in or...More
