Fodor's Review

This Red River staple, which traces its roots to a legendary Lubbock barbecue joint founded in 1968, is known as much for music as food. The casual venue, an old stone building with wooden floors and tables, suits the fare, which many local barbeque aficionados rate as average. The hickory-smoked choices—beef brisket, pork ribs, sausage, chicken, and turkey breast—are tasty enough, but sides, like spicy, Serrano creamed spinach, are definite crowd pleasers. Plus, their popular line of barbecue sauces and rubs make for great souvenirs. Music, with indoor and outdoor stages that host local bands and touring headlining acts throughout the year, is a main component, especially during the always-crowded Sunday gospel brunch.
