Flavorful and perfect cut of brisket, nice blackened crisp edge and the meat moist, but the sauce was weak and tasted like something from a jar. Sausage was moist and flavor was good but casing was left on in the sandwich & so tough it made it almost indelible. Not much meat on the sandwich which necessitates upgrading to Big Boy a requirement not an option. Buns were doughy. Table was sticky and cig butts in ashtray on table when we sat down. Not impressed and shouldn't be on the list. Doesn't make the journey the whole way from pit to mouth

Decent but not stellar. Mental lapse not asking for sauce on side. Sauce was ok, but not my face. WARNING: Ribs only on Fridays. I had to settle for sliced beef, sausage and turkey. All passable and beef had promise if not buried in sauce. Bottom line: Have had better BBQ at places not on TX Monthly list.

Surprisingly good brisket and equally good ribs from a gas station BBQ joint. Worth the trip to nowhere!

We got the sliced and chopped brisket. Potato salad was decent. Also... The sauce was good. Couldn't beat washing it down with a huge glass of Big Red from the fountain!

Two trips in two years, and it was pouring down rain both times. I guess the sun shines in Lillian, I just haven’t seen it. It’s not like you pass through a place like Lillian. With Cedar Hill State Park to the east and nothing to the west, it’s not easily accessible, but BBQ from Casstevens can make the trip worth your while. Friday is rib day, so on a Saturday morning, I was surprised…

Though several tables have been added since we last wrote about this obscure gem at a Diamond Shamrock station (there’s no sign outside to advertise the unbelievably good ’cue within), it’s still hard to snag a seat at Casstevens. The reason? Mesquite-smoked meats, including thick hunks of brisket that are generously rubbed with garlic, salt, and pepper before they’re left to blacken in the two huge pits for fifteen hours.
