My son and I stopped by for dinner. We wanted something different and seen the BBQ sign. It was hard to choose what to eat so I went with the sampler platter. All the food was good. I had trouble of eating it all and was very stuffed. The restaurant was clean and the service friendly. I would eat there... More

Food was ok, a little too much mesquite seasoning for my taste, but others may like it. Portion was good for the price and the staff was very courteous.

We are from Texas and have moved to the East. We are always looking for BBQ that is as good as what we had in Texas. The Brisket at Texas BBQ was not quite as smokey as I like but it was good enough that we ate there both nights of our stay. The sides of cole slaw and baked... More

I ordered the brisket. One friend ordered the chili, and the other ordered the ribs. All were excellent!!! We sampled each other's food and were quite happy with the taste, quality and price.

Moved to the area about 2 years ago. Have seen this unassuming place on the side of the road. Stopped in for lunch today. The brisket was the BEST I have ever put in my mouth, and easily cut with their plastic fork! Sauce served on the side, and very little is needed. The meat was SO tender and juicy.... More

Good Brisket. It's not Blacks or Coopers but you shouldn't expect it to be. I just moved here and was suprised to see Texas BBQ. The brisket had a great bark and flavor but was a little dryer than I prefer. All in all it was really good and I'll definitely go back. Sides could use a little more seasoning

I tried the ribs and they were decent but the rub they use is kind of bland.....the chili...although they claim is the best around....is kind of watery....not thick like I would expect....it was OK.....the pepper jack mac and cheese wasn't bad....I'll try them one more time and see if some of their other items are any better. It's not Texas....but... More

Wow! This place has delicious food. I love the smoked meat they serve. We had the sampler and the brisket was tender and smokey, the chicken was falling off the bone with the smoke taste through the bone. The sausage was the most tender and juicy smoked sausage I've ever had. Awesome sides too! We loved the pepper jack mac... More

Most of the food is good. I don't particularly care for the ribs. There kinda of pricey for the amount that you get but there the the only texas style BBQ place around so when you Need a fix this is the place to go.
