We were staying right nearby at the Knight's Inn, so we walked for a simple dinner. The brisket was excellent, but the sides were not to our taste. But it was a fun and funky place to help satisfy my BBQ cravings.

Killer ribs and beef. Sides were good along with very friendly staff. Service was line up, order, seat yourself, pick up order and then just eat n drink. What else could you want in a BBQ joint ! Like I said nothing fancy just good food, NOT BILLY SIMS BBQ IN TULSA OK ( which is most likely the best... More

This is a good eats no frills eatery. We dined at the one on the south end of town. Very good ribs and sandwiches! Good family dining but not a date night restaurant with concrete floor and warehouse feel. Reasonably priced, fast and tasty. I would return and I recommend it!

There is something for everybody. In the winter they have specials like pulled pork baked stuffed potatoes. Pulled pork, sausages, and brisket are all great. Reasonably priced and great environment (+ many Texas beers for you)

The counter staff were helpful and pleasant. We ordered a combination platter to share and were disappointed. The brisket and pulled pork were dry and there was only one BBQ sauce which we felt was so so. The sausage was good and the turkey was excellent. The dining experience did not live up to our memory of a visit years... More

Thank you for your recent review. The Big 6 is a great way to sample our meat offerings. Not a huge fan of our BBQ sauce? Be sure to try our signature chipotle mayo, orange-jalapeno mustard or the cranberry habanero salsa. Please come back and see us soon. More

Ribs and pulled pork were over the top. All sides are separate priced but good anyway. Sauce was a little week, beer cold, atmosphere is typical first class BBQ house. If you miss this restaurant you have been warned. You missed out on a great meal.

The environment is pretty cool.... The food is way over priced and way over rated. Go to Burger King!!

Great place to take a family with children. Eat outside on the patio if the weather permits. The BBQ was very good and the service fast. And prices reasonable It is an "order at the front counter and bus your own plate" casual eatery.

We love Serious Texas bbq! We own a hotel a couple of doors down and eat here often as well as send guests. Our guests always rave about their experience and we often buy lunch for our staff here!
