Love this place! Close to home and serves up quality meat with great smoke, flavor and ambience. Clean, organized and great Texas music to make you feel right at home.

Three years ago, they both decided to retire and open up a barbecue joint in Burnet. They chose a building on the west side of town that has seen number of barbecue joints come and go.
