My husband and I saw this place many times and finally stopped in for lunch. We are so glad we did. The chopped brisket sandwich with spicy BBQ sauce was great. I also loved the baked beans and fried okra. My husband also loved the...More

It is similar to Vitek's famous gut pack (Waco) but they add an ingredient thats makes it fuller and sweeter...sour cream. A must try! Loved it

Visiting from California. This place was the Turkey Shop when I was a young man. Now it is really good BBQ. There are good BBQ places down around Austin but the farther north you go they are hard to find. This place is not a...More

The signs going south from Dallas made us hungry and luckily it was lunch time. The drive through the construction to get to the other side of the highway was worth it. Very plain, nothing fancy, but very clean and inviting. Staff very friendly and...More
