Amazing sounding TX bbq discovery

My friend in Texas just told me about a place called the Cele General Store.

It's a small old general store, close to nowhere, sort of somewhere between Taylor and Manor. There's rusty farm equipment in the back, and bottles of hair tonic on the shelves and a basket of bolts for carriages. She assures me there are no cute statues of pigs or dairy cows.

They only serve food on Friday nights and Saturday lunch. You have to have reservations. They offer barbeque brisket, sausage, and ribs. No sides except onions, pickles, cheese, bread, jalapenos and bbq sauce. All of it dumped in the middle of the table on butcher block paper.

None of the chairs match, the floor is slanted and there is plenty of dust. The beer is served behind a huge old saloon esque bar.

Has anyone else heard of this place?
