Glad we stopped here. Great way to pick out your meat. Loved the atmosphere. Very friendly. Only one bbq sauce option, would have like more.

First time visit, and wasn't quite sure what to expect. As this is cafeteria-style service, there was a line, but with the entrance quite close to the pit queue line, we were crowded just getting in the door. We visited early on a Sunday evening,...More

There were only a few people in front of us ordering their meat and it still took about 10 minutes standing beside those BBQ pits. It was incredibly hot in that area. Then they have a sign to order by the pound. I'm not used...More

We took my wife's brother to the stockyards since he was here visiting from Indiana. It was our first time there too. He wanted to take us somewhere for ribs. I found this place on Google. They sell the meat by the pound. I didn't...More
