Made a quick trip from SA to check on this place. Brisket solid albeit inconsistent. Pork ribs were good; sausage and potato salad okay. Overall solid Q place to stop by if you're driving on I-35.

I only had brisket and sausage, but it was very good. It is now on my repeat visit list. Brisket: flavorful bark, very moist and tender and excellent flavor. Jalapeño sausage: good snap, consistency and flavor. I would like it even more if it was a little more spicy.
