In addition to their food, BYG has a Food Truck, a Texas store and offers Catering.
We arrived at the restaurant for a late lunch/early dinner. As we approached the restaurant, I immediately noticed the large patio. Perfect for when the cool weather comes in or for those who don’t mind a little heat.
It was too hot for us, so we asked for a booth inside. The interior of the restaurant offers a rustic vibe with a few seating options to choose from.
The bar area is separate from the restaurant area. We were seated in a booth. The waiter came by and dropped off menus and took our drink orders. I love a good mocktail, but BYG didn’t have any so I went with a regular drink.
We skipped appetizers this day and went straight to the entrée. Baby Boy decided on the Mac n Cheese with fruit. This was a simple option but a good one for the kids.
Baby girl chose the Mac n Cheese also but she ordered the mashed potatoes.
My husband ordered the BBQ Ribs with a loaded baked potato. The ribs were saucy, tender and delicious. Very good. The loaded baked potato was served with butter, cheese, sour cream and bacon.
I ordered the Chicken Fried Steak. The chicken fried steak was fried perfectly. Served on a bed of garlic mashed potatoes topped with white gravy and Texas toast. A good plate of Comfort Food after a long day. My only complaint was that my dish lacked seasoning. Adding a touch more of seasoning and this dish would have been perfect.
I added a side of green beans. The green beans were perfectly seasoned. Really good.
Overall we enjoyed our dining experience at BYG. They have been in business for a long time. Serving up their classic burgers and much more. Everything was served piping hot. The service was good. I loved that this restaurant was kid friendly and had a family atmosphere.
After a long day of travel, this was a good choice for us to grab a home-cook meal without having to compromise flavor.
In addition, BYG also has homemade desserts that are made in house. We weren’t in the mood for dessert but I heard that the cobbler is delicious.
