This "VietTex" mashup of bold Vietnamese flavors and low-and-slow Texas barbecue is not to be missed. And like any joint worth their salt, the sides stand tall next to the meat.
The chicken still rocks the yard, but with those ribs as an opener, you can't lose.

Your waitress may resemble a runaway who's lost her clothing, but don't call the cops – just order the ribs.
