Hats off to this place. The Brisket is really good, as is the Elgin Sausage. We ordered the Big 6 which had Brisket, Turkey, Pulled Pork, Sausage and ribs. It can feed three people easily. All meats were very good. The ribs were just a...More

Hi, Kim C, thank you for your feedback. We offer both wet and dry brisket to meet your taste and always happy to leave the mustard sauce off so you can personalize it with BBQ sauce. We hope you will join us again.

Enjoyed the BBQ atmosphere and the ribs were delicious but did not enjoy the cheesy potatoes or beans. The portions are large and service was good. I would not visit again because I did not like the side dish choices.

Being from Texas we wanted some good BBQ and stopped in here. The meat was a little bland with no hint of "smoke" that we are used to (mesquite or hickory). Their side dishes were very limited with no healthy vegetable of any kind. Typically...More

We appreciate you dining with us. If you do not care for our BBQ sauce, be sure to try one of our signature condiments like our orange -jalapeno mustard or cherry chipotle salsa. We hope to serve you again in the near future.

Had a long line but it went fast. We got a pound of beef brisket and one turkey baked potato for the non red-meat water in the group. The service was fast, despite the line. The food was tasty and filling. We loved the BBQ...More

I guess living in Texas has made me somewhat of a connoisseur of BBQ. If you really like good Texas BBQ, you may be disappointed. The brisket was somewhat tough and even hard to cut with the plastic knife. They had two varieties of BBQ...More

If you're from Texas and missing BBQ or if you just have a craving, you won't be disappointed. The chopped beef was a wee bit salty for my taste, but don't let that stop you, there's plenty of flavor and they aren't stingy with the...More
