The Low Down
Know Before You Go: Once you get your meal ticket, load up your tray at the meat, side, and dessert stations, and then find an open table. Note: If you lose your ticket, you'll be paying a hefty minimum charge.
What to Drink: Drinks can be ordered at the drink station, or you can order them from the waiter who comes to your table after you've sat down. Agave-enhanced margaritas ($10) are a tart kick in the pants, though cold Coronas ($6) don't quite make up for the lack of draught beer.
Live Music: Bands play regularly on the downstairs stage--call ahead for the schedule.
The Extras: Blue Bell, a beloved, hard-to-find Texas ice cream, is available for $4 a cup.
Fun Fact: The restaurant was based on barbecue mecca Kruez Market in Lockhart, Texas.
