Ordering Tips


If you're planning a trip to Taylor to visit us in the near future, it doesn't hurt to prepare for the experience in advance...and we're here to help!


The first order of business is the protocol of ordering.  We began as an extension of a meat market and those classic, old traditions continue today. 


We slice your order to your specifications right in front of you, taking the meat directly from the pit. 


Every customer is greeted at the counter with a sample of beef brisket - something to chew on while your order is prepared.  Meals are served on a tray covered with a piece of white butcher paper.  Our original barbecue sauce is served with each order and sliced bread (or crackers)pickels and onions are available at no charge.


Our beef brisket is available in two forms:  lean (the dense, flavorful end of the brisket which has the consistency of steak) and moist (the marbled or fatty end of the brisket which is tender, juicy and melt in your mouth delicious).   You can order it by the slice or by the pound.


Other meats sold by the slice /pound include pork tenderloin and boneless turkey breast.




We offer two types of ribspork and beef.  Both are served by the rib /  pound -  and you won't believe the effect our beef ribs will have on you.  They have been called by many "the best thing I've ever put in my mouth!!!" ...That's awesome!


Our sausage is a family recipe of German origin  created by Bobby Mueller in the mid-60's.  Each sausage is made in-house and by hand containing 100% beef and tallow stuffed into natural casing (nothing synthetic going on here!).  Each sausage is roughly 5" long weighing approximately 1/5 lb  and comes in three flavors:  Original, Jalapeno and Chipotle


It's best to come early to grab one of these gems, they tend to go fast!


Our side dishes are made in-house  fresh each day from old family recipes.  Your choices include potato salad, coleslaw and pinto beans.  All are sold by the serving, 1/2 pint, pint or quart.


To round off your meal, we offer a wide range of sodas (bottles) as well as seet and unsweetened tea and lemonade.
