Wow! Brisket(lean and moist) was special! Sliced pork was also divine. Only wish I had shown up earlier to taste the beef rib...

Thick slices of fatty brisket were excellent, juicy and had a hint of sweetness in the flavorful bark and rendered fat. Definitely top 50 worthy and worth a trip. Ribs had nice smoky flavor and were good, and turkey was moist and tasty. Get the fries over the potato salad.

Very tender brisket with a good smoked flavor. Sausage is good, but seems like Eckrich or the like. Beans are just okay- a bit bland.
James Pharaon @ Betty Rose’s Little Brisket, 2014-04-24 13:20:14
This place is getting better. I had brisket and a pork rib today. Both were amazing. Brisket was better than I remembered and definitely rivals Franklin. The ribs are different. They use a sweeter baste. Apple cider vinegar and something else I assume. Very good.

Third times a charm. I could talk about everything one by one but that would take to long. I have tried each meat and I would recommend all of them.
