The food here is very consistant, The beans are great. And you cant beat the ribs and chicken very tender. The poor boy is the bomb.

We enjoyed a wide array of foods, One had a full rack of ribs, I had a shredded beef sandwich with potato salad. All of us had the cup of Brown bean soup! Everyone enjoyed the meal, it was served hot and was mm-mm-mm-good.

We go here when I get Home sick. The BBQ is good, and its fun to watch the longhorns. I would suggest the stop if you are so inclined. The kids get a kick out of it too.

The food and service was good. I was probably expecting more based on the reviews I read. It is convenient as we cross the border after hours of driving and are ready to enjoy some good Texas BBQ.
