    So sorry for the entire family. West Texas BBQ was a fixture of Silsbee which we all love and miss. Just like we will miss Ms Nita.
    She never said much but Alma took up the slack.

    Rusty Navarre says:

    We are from Kirbyville but have purchased many ponds of BBQ,Turkey and smoked links over the years from the business. She and her daughter were both hard working and kind, no matter what the sign says. We lost our mother a year ago and know it’s hard to lose a loved one especially a mother. We will be praying for the family and hope God brings all of you come b
