We got there around 1830 on 03 JUL and they had already sold out of ribs and chicken. I got pork and brisket. The brisket was out of this world. I chose 2 meats ($13.99) and my wife 1 meat ($11.99). My two sides were potato salad and beans. Potato salad tasted like what you would buy from a deli--not a fan. The beans were made from scratch--actually using the bits and scraps of meats. They were great. Most of the desserts were sold out. From the ones I saw almost all were frozen store bought. We did not purchase any. Our Texas Toast was a bit dry. Probably made hours earlier and kept warm. Also, as a huge plus, in the back dining room was a sign indicating Firearms were welcome. I will patronize and support any and all Pro 2A businesses. The prices were higher than expected. I assume he must keep prices high to cover expenses. With limited seating and sporadic hours, there is not a steady income stream. As I said earlier, the brisket is great. The pork was standard run-of-the-mill Alabama pork. My rating is justified simply for the brisket. I will try again to get some ribs. Unless they are out of this world, I will probably drive past this restaurant on my way to Big Bob Gibson in Decatur when in the mood for ribs and pork. If you have not tried the food, stop in. It is worth at least a visit.
Absolutely the best barbecue east of the Pecos... Well, make that the Mississippi. To find Barbecue Briquette, Ribs and Hot Links equal to The Chuck Wagon's you have to travel to central Texas. Wonderful, authentic Texas style BBQ. Be prepared to wait inline a bit. By virtue of demand, The Chuck Wagon, is kinda exclusive. Truly an epicurean, BBQ aficionado must have. If only we had an equivalent Tex-Mex restaurant here in the Rocket City, I would need not ever return to Austin.
Good food with great service. It's very family owned and they show it with the food and customer service. It's a must try.
i love the ribs ... but sometimes they are tough
