Found this place a while when it wa mentioned in TMs first list. Wasn't to impressed with the sliced beef sandwich and the service wasn't too friendly.

Chopped beef sandwich was the real deal... Sausage was pretty good. Interesting atmosphere as it is just inside of a gas station

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

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.
