We were seated during a busy lunch rush and the bean soup was on the table almost before we could sit down. It was so fantastic, great seasonings and tiny bits of brisket. It is all you can eat so you just might want a second cup. We ordered the loaded spud special. Talk about a wonderful baked potato -... More

Quick service near closing time with just a few guests present. A cup of beans was served almost instantly and bean eaters will like them. The brisket was tender and excellent with or without sauce. The white meat chicken was slightly dry but had a nice crispy skin on it. The ribs were tasty without BBQ sauce on them. The... More

I love the BBQ and they have a great screened area. I love that my kids can run and play in the grass and I can sit. No one has to listen to us fuss inside. Love it!

Food is always good here! Wait staff is friendly. We live close so we go often. It's fun to see the longhorns grazing in the back pasture.

Service is hit or miss. We've had to ask for other waiters passing by to get somebody to wait on us. We've becoming very disappointed with this place. Yes, the food is great; however like anything else they are not the only place for BBQ in the valley. Everybody is replaceable, including the longhorn cattle company.

This place was amazing for us! We were in Texas, traveling from Indiana & stopped here before heading to the airport to fly home. Everything about the restaurant was fabulous. We came upon it by accident but I am so glad we did!

We stopped in on a Saturday night near the end of March. It wasn't overly busy and we were seated in the front room which is good because it's not real noisy there. Our server was very friendly and took our drink order and returned with our drinks in large pitchers. No need for refills. He gave us a cup... More

we have visited twice during our stay in Texas. The brisket is to die for and can be cut with a dull fork it is so tender. my wife had the large baked potato and it is a meal all by itself. The back room is a little noisy, but there is a front section that is quieter. They start... More

A very busy restaurant on a Wednesday night but service did not suffer. Very attentive service and the sausage, brisket, and BBQ sauce were quite good. I'm not a bean lover, so the coffee cup of beans did not do much for me, though others in my group thought they were very good. I'll be back the next time I'm... More

The food was super, and the sauce some of the best ever. Service made it worthwhile - Chris was our server and was fun!
