I love BBQ in general, but Texas BBQ holds a special place in my heart. But unfortunately, there hasn't been a BBQ joint that was devoted to Texas BBQ in years in this area, and that place closed almost 30 years ago. Don't get me wrong, there are some great BBQ joints in the area, but Texas BBQ is fairly distinct; especially when it comes to beef, and all of the other places do a mix of Southern styles. To have a restaurant be devoted to Texas BBQ is AMAZING!

I've been craving BBQ and came here after reading the positive reviews. We got the brisket and a beef rib. The staff was really nice and gave us an extra rib saying that the first one is smaller than their normal portions. The brisket is good although it's a bit light on the flavor side -- that I had to use the sauce. The beef rib has a ton of flavor but I agree with the other reviewers that it's too fatty. The coleslaw was great.

I heard a lot of great reviews about this place so I decided to check it out. I wasn't blown away by it. The spare ribs were tender but not much flavor. The brisket was good but on the overcooked side. The beef ribs was huge but super fatty and hadn't quite hit the point where the fat rendered down. It was good BBQ but I don't think I'll be back for the price.
