What a Moron! – I'm a long time customer, and have never been treated like that. The night manager is RUDE! He acts like he's doing you a favor by getting you your food. He is obviously not happy with his job. If the owner is listening, you better get rid of him, he is killing your business. I wont be back til he's gone, and im not the only one.
Terrible Food – I recently moved to Metairie from Texas and I was excited to find this establishment down the street from my apartment. That excitement was short lived!
I would not reccommend this place to anyone I know, in fact I recommend against even trying it.
The 'sliced brisket' seemed to be more boiled than smoked and the sauce tasted like a combination of marinara and hot sauce and was slathed over the beef as if the brisket were spaghetti.
Please Please Please don't waste your money here!
Smoked grub reigns at low-key suburban spot. – The Scene
Corral decor brings the Lone Star look to life. Steer horns and cowboy art grace wood-paneled walls. Swinging saloon doors lead to backroom booths. Dining is no fancy affair--order at the counter, then collect your plastic trays and paper napkins for a finger-licking feast.
Barbecue comes slathered in tangy sauce with hefty sides of slaw and beans. Ribs, pork, brisket and chicken all emerge from the in-house smoker packed full of flavor. Each comes on an overflowing platter; a combo plate satisfies the indecisive. Steaks get a five-hour smoking before hitting the sizzling grill, which socks in a special taste. The smoked potato is a house specialty: A heaping spud is stuffed with chopped barbecue, sauce, cheese and chives. Seafood dishes and po' boys feed those not interested in the sweet sauce.
RE:KarenConway – KarenCoway must have this place confused with someplace else. There are no waiters. It's pretty much self serve. You place your order and pick it up when they call you. The barbecue sauce is excellent. The meats are very lean, no fat, moist and juicy. It melts in your mouth. They have the best potato salad in the world. Been going there for years and will continue to do so.
best BBQ in this side of TX – What a flavor this BBQ has--the sauce tastes as if it's been simmering and smoked for days. Meats so tender they melt in your mouth. Best beans I've had at a restaruant. Not romantic, but cute as can be for it's theme. Tucked behind a donut shop, near Corky's on Vets in Metairie. Worth the drive.
Good value. GReat for families.
Never Again – The atmosphere was OK if you didn't mind all the dirty tables around you. We were seated promptly but had to wait for 15 minutes for a waiter. The food was so slow I thought maybe they had to slaughter the animal. The food was mediocre to say the least, I've had much better at cub scout bar b ques. I almost left without paying because it took the waiter 45 minutes to bring us our check after we waited 30 minutes for him to show up at our table. To make matters worse there was only 1 other table that had customers in the whole place. I would hate to see it when it was crowded. I felt like half my vacation was spent in this place. If you have nothing but time I guess its OK.
Small but savory – This place can get crowded easily, especially in the front, main dining area (sit along the side/back area if you can). But it's well worth it for some of the area's best barbecue. The sausage platter is my personal favorite, but it's all worth trying. The decor is cute...lots of ranch-style decorations and some local color-type photos. You'll probably wait a bit for your food, but again, it's absolutely worth it.
