Chicken was tender and smoky. Jalapeño sausage fairly bland. Brisket juicy but fatty. Great coleslaw. Dirty rice a little dry. Nice selection of sides. A little expensive for plastic wrapped meats.

If I was on death row and had to choose my last meal it would be hear. And would include a double order of heartattack potato salad. The meat and other sides are amazing but that potato salad is a must.

First time I've had Texas BBQ in Texas and all can say is yum! I usually order BBQ pork but I took the advice from others and ordered Beef Brisket. Why do they give you a knife? It's so tender you can cut it with your fork! $12.95 for one meat and two sides. GREAT DEAL. I went with the... More

Amazing food and customer service! We are visiting from Arizona and had to try some Texas BBQ. This was a great choice! I would return! I had the brisket and jalapeño sausage. They were both amazingly good and I tried my husband's spicy ribs which were excellent and they were spicy, they did not disappoint.

Food would have been great but ALL the meat we ordered was ruined by tasting and smelling like INTENSE smoke. Stunk up the whole house and was inedible. Would have returned it and asked for money back but we drove home to eat it. Obviously this isn't how the meat is usually cooked, I must have come in on an... More
