Very good brisket and ribs
Brisket ribs sausage were ok
If you can't say anything nice, don't say anything at all. Best thing I had was the Dr. Pepper.
Po-boy sandwich was pretty good this late
Came here based on review over a year old. Since on way up I35, not much to lose. Place looks like old gas station conversion. Inside there are lots of trophies for Bbq cook offs mainly in the 90's. Very family oriented. So the food. I ordered 2 meat special of brisket and chicken along with side of coleslaw. Brisket was lean-should have asked for moist but overall it has good taste and flavor even though dry. It did fall apart so that's good or would not be able to eat-no chewiness. Dipping in sauce improved flavor as very little smoke ring. Sauce has a bit of a kick-cayenne? Overall I give brisket 3 out of 5 for moistness and 3.5 for taste. The chicken was moist and looked like dry rub with spices. Not much of any smoke flavor until dip into sauce. I would give it a 3.5 out of 5. Cole slaw was a bit on sweet side but had good crispness. 2.5 out of 5.
Chopped and a coke there chopped I always good
First timer but not the last!
Holy smoke this place is good! Slice brisket and pulled pork were amazing in the tangy, vinegary sauce that built up a nice, slow burn over multiple bites. Opted for regular sausage over jalapeño cheese. It was OK, but I prefer the kind made with meat loosely held in the casing. Will come back again to try more of the menu & enjoy the banquet-hall-like interior.
Jalapanio sausage bland taste like Hot Dog.
Loaded potato hit the spot
Had the Franklin both sausage and hopped weren't quite hot te hot link was awesome
Brisket was very bland no crust, big disappointment.
Closed I guess
Sorry hit done too early. Other than that, the moist fell apart and didn't need any Bbq sauce. Lean was juicy and not dried out. Both had good smoke ring and bark. Tasted fabulous. The Bbq sauce has good taste to it. Not too sweet. Not too vinegary. Just right but I used sparingly since not necessary. For sides I had Mac and cheese which I think is velveeta cheese based and very thick. Very good. The Coke slaw is one of the best I've had. Peppery. Crunchy. A little sweet. Perfect. All in all 5 out of 5 for sides, 4 out of 5 for brisket. I've taken turkey and chicken home for dinner and will let you know how those were. If southwest of houston, don't miss this place.
On my way to middle of nowhere El Campo and saw this gem on TM app with a 4.0 score. Seen this before and hit or miss on some high scoring places. Well I can say this is a 4.0 out 5 definitely. I would have scored it a 4.5 but the beautifully peppered crust of the moist had way too much salt on the bark. Also some fat not rendered between the bark and the meat to point of some being 1/4" thick. 1/16" is okay but more that that and just takes fatty.
Stopped by for some beef ribs. Ribs were decent but fat not rendered. Served cold and Bbq sauce seemed watered down. Overall 3 out 5.
Two chopped fair to midland
had a brisket and sausage plate at Real Ale's 20th. Brisket was moist and had good flavor, could have used a little more smoke and they trim the bark off. The sausage was a little dry and precut but had good flavor and went well with the Mac n cheese. The slaw was cold and crunchy and their sauce is good as well. worth the money I paid
First time back here since the late 90s. Kind of miss the ambiance of the past, but still pretty darn cool. Had brisket, sausage and ribs. Brisket was lean but still nice and moist. Not quite as smoky as I like, but still very good. Sausage could have been a tad leaner, but very good. Ribs were great! Sauce was very good, kind of a hint of sweet, but not too much. Had the blackberry cobbler with ice cream. Good homemade stuff!
We have lived in the North Dallas area for 15 years and had never been to this hidden gem. Very unique meats and sides. The deviled eggs are awesome - they have a bit of brisket mixed in - great idea. The blue cheese cole slaw and mac & cheese were both excellent. The brisket and turkey were both solid. Very tender brisket. The rub on the turkey was spicy and very, very tasty. Our only regret is that we did not come earlier since they were sold out of the shoulder, pork chops, ribs, chicken, beans and potato salad by 7 PM on Saturday. Get there early.
