This place served so so bbq. When I asked if they had a hot bbq sauce they shook some hot sauce in my regular bbq sauce. Beans were okay. But all that said they have since closed due to a fire.

Three Sam's by the railroad tracks is the best place to eat in Mabelvale. The BBQ is delicious and the prices are fair.

Good food but nothing (one visit) in my opinion that separates it from the field. Service is friendly and quick. Will revisit for a quick meal on the go but while tender - their chopped pork sandwich is just ok.

This joint is the kind of cool that just is. The food is good with value sized portions. You never leave hungry. The ambience is what a BBQ joint should be. The focus is on the food and the service.
