Small little spot and initially kind of skeptical about trying but was hungry and was told by the neighbor that their food was really good. Got the one meat plate with rice and bean combo with creamed corn. You have your option of home made bread or tortillas. I picked tortillas. I was curious about the creamed corn so I tried it first and it was very very good. Then off to the rice and beans which had a little meat in it was phenomenal. The brisket was very tasty as well. My uncle who owned a restaurant always said when you have good BBQ you don't need sauce with it. This BBQ was a perfect example of that. The food overall was very good and honestly the sauce takes away from the great flavors of the sides. Only draw back I have was the tortillas were kind of hard. They weren't burnt but just hard. And honestly didn't need them because the food was good. Will definitely go back.

One of the best bbq I've had in a long time. When you think of South Texas bbq this is the spot to eat at. Everything from the meat to the sides scream South Texas. It all taste like if you're spending a Sunday afternoon with the family just making homemade bbq. It really reminds me if I'm back home and my dad is making bbq for the family. Not to mention they also make pan de campo, this place is everything. Will definitely be going back.
