This is one of the better Smoke Houses in the Houston area and I've tried many of them. The meats are delicious and tender. The mac 'n cheese was great. I did not care for the mustard potato salad because it was heavily packed with raw onion. Every bit had an overwhelming onion flavor which is too much for my taste buds. The BBQ sauce was good. I'd love to see a couple more sauce options.

This place was amazing. It's hard to find a BBQ place that has both good quality rubs and meats, AND great BBQ sauce. Also the pickled sides were great, a little on the tangy spicy side like they should be. Not a ton of seating in the main area, but you can always sit outside (unless it's raining). Beef ribs melt in your mouth!

This is a gem of a BBQ spot. It's counter service so you get your BBQ quickly and the food is outstanding. Everything we had from the meat to the sides was excellent. Highly recommend. Plus the people working there were the nicest!
