Very good BBQ. I had the brisket tacos and my husband had the pork tacos. Had cold beer which was a plus.

The brisket platter was very good but only 4 stars because of the massive amount of fat that they left on it. Also for $2.80 more order the 3 meat platter. The people in our group who ordered that,had way less fat on their brisket...More
