Avoid this restaurant - mediocre bbq, bbq sauce that is very strong with vinegar. Food served was cold - not just tepid, but actually cold. Five dinners ordered - three were 'acceptable' and two were not. Pork was nearly 30% fat. Waitress asked if we wanted something else - so ordered a pulled pork sandwich - only to be served the same nasty, fatty, cold pork slices/slabs on a bun - definitey NOT pulled pork so cut our losses and shared the meat from the other 4 at our table.Then were billed for BOTH meals! Asked for adjustment - manager was surly, then outright rude. Then HE added a tip to the bill - even tho the restaurant policy was to add 15% for parties of 6 or more -- we were five. There's more - but no point in kicking a dead horse.In short - a very unsatisfying end to a day hiking the Carlsbad Caverns for 4 miles.... KFC bbq chicken sandwich would have been a better option.

Pros: Good parking

Cons: too many to list

I've had BBQ all over the USA. This is some of the best anywhere. Well worth a visit when you're in the area.

Pros: Great BBQ

Cons: Can't think of any. I enjoyed everything about this place.

Great prices and to die for sauce make this a regular stop for me! The meat is moist, and the portions are generous. So far, nothing I have ordered has let me down.

The tables were pretty crowded together. I ordered the beef, but I traded some for my son's turkey. The turkey was delicious, very moist and full of smokey flavor. I've heard from others that it just depends on the night, you never know which meat will be best. Yummy dinner rolls and salad along with all the meat.
