Went in with friends tonight and was pretty disappointed at the attitude of the employees. One was obviously not wanting to be there. You are in the industry where you have to interact with customers. I felt a little berated by her. As for the...More

Best brisket from Texas to Tennessee to Wyoming. Very tender brisket will just fall apart and the cheesy potatoes were great. This is located in a strip of stores and no outside signage yet. Well Worth locating if in the surrounding area
