Might be an also ran in KC or Texas, but here in Omaha this is easily Top 5.
Best brisket yet in the Big O!

Hickory smoked with a salt & pepper rub, the first bite was savory and delicious. No need for sauce although I did try some with later bites. Sadly, very few cut brisket in the traditional manner. I, for one, miss that ribbon of fat that melts like butter in your mouth and keeps it moist. TT's was a thicker cut and all too lean, yet not so as I would complain.

The creamed corn is very tasty and a delightful surprise. Cole slaw offers a choice of dressings and is mixed to order leaving the cabbage fresh and crunchy. (If one cannot chew cabbage it is time to have your dentures checked) The next day with leftovers it was perfect.

It was a return visit for my daughter and everything was top notch as she remembered. Server was friendly and helpful. Prices very reasonable. And I do like the ala carte menu.

This is a must try!

Love the Tired Texan!! Ribs, pork & briskit are all great. Love that they use a rub and let you put on the sauce. (Which it doesn't need.) Mac N Cheese is also awesome! They make everything fresh so may run out, better get there early! Meat meater by hostess stand lets you know if they're low or out of something so you can find out before you're seated.

Found this gem via trip advisor...only been open a few months. The food is SO good. Quotes from our group "best pulled pork I've had" "the amount of meat on the ribs is incredible" "nice find, solid thumbs up from me".

This has become our best place for BBQ in Omaha! But you have to get there early or they'll run out! The sides are also really good. But the best secret about this "BBQ joint" is that their burgers and fries are really good too! So if you get there too late to get any BBQ, then grab a burger. You'll love that too!
