Obviously Railhead and Angelos get all the credit as top BBQ joints in the Fort, but there are some other places that are worth going to, just so you can tell your son one day "I went to that place back when I was your age." Sons like that.
I don't know the name of the place, and frankly, it doesn't matter. In my opinion, and compared to Railhead, the chopped beef sandwich is okay. It's not bad, and considering you pay $5 for a sandwich and fries (that are good), its really not that bad of a deal. So, taking it for what its worth, I'd say its worth the trip. But not really for the sandwich. Its all about the ambiance.
This place is on Belknap and Oakhurst Scenic Drive. Its right there on the corner. You'll see it. There are lots of trucks and motorcycles out front.
The "clientele" are primarily men. That is probably because the waitresses are all wearing bikini tops and shorts. This is not why you should go there. In fact, judging by our waitress, this is a really good reason not to go. But, its the whole attitude inside. You've got guys who have just finished up a golf game, some men dressed up for work, people who have been working outside all morning and then me. The inside resembles that dive bar you probably went to in college. Plus, they serve booze there.
I don't know why I ever went in there in the first place but its probably the same reason I'll go back. To reconnect with my wild, rebellious, motorcycle dude side that I don't have.
Anyways, if you're looking for a good BBQ sandwich and the best fries in town (in my opinion) go to Railhead. If you're looking for a dirty place that you'll someday say, "I used to go there when I was younger" go to this place. Plus, its a cool place to go hang out and watch some games. There are a ton of flat screen TVs, and for some reason one of them shows a camera facing the parking lot....
Fun "fact" of the day... Despite being surrounded by feed lots full of cattle (I know because of the smell), Lubbock (IMO) has the worst selection of BBQ in Texas for a town it's size. Of the two best places, one is only open on Friday and the other is a bit pricey.
