sampled 9/8/11 about 12:30 pm
Finally found this place today after a vague first description from Scott several months back. For the record, this joint is located just north of the Hwy 80/4th street intersection in Wills Point, about 1/2 mile north on 4th street, on the left. According to the front door, hours are 11-8, Tuesday-Sunday, closed Monday.
On arrival I found a parking lot full of pick up trucks, always a good sign.
The brisket was perfectly tender, very moist, and had a hint of smoke flavor. There were a generous five slices which went down pretty easy. Underneath those brisket slabs were three very nice, big, spare ribs. They were just a tad overcooked, the meat came away from the bone a bit too easy, but they had a very nice flavor. The meat was moist and tender with a sweet glaze on the bark. Having just judged a KCBS event I would offer the opinion that the meat sampled here was as good or better as anything I sampled at the contest. The added attraction is that I know where to go back to get more! The beans were average pintos and the potato salad was pretty average, too. The sauce was a thick, rich tomato concoction, with just a bit too much vinegar flavor for my taste.
This is another good East Texas stop and on a par, maybe a bit better, than Mr. B's in Grand Saline. It would be interesting to sample both of those on the same day for a direct comparison and I may have to take on that task, soon!
