I stopped in for a weekday lunch to a near empty house. I ordered the 1/3 brisket and a ½ pound of ribs with a side of French fries. The order came up quickly and the portion size was perfect for lunch. The very tender...More

Forget famous dave's, if you want real bbq (the brisket literally sells out nightly), hit them up. If parking lot is full, plenty of street parking. Oh and try the gumbo.
