We are local and have BBQ at both Cranky Franks and Some Kinda BBQ. The BBQ at Some Kinda BBQ is the best. We have taken our own grass raised beef there to have them BBQ it for us, and often buy large amounts of their beef to take to our mine site in NM for lunches.

Don't let the looks of this small place turn you away. I was staying at the Hotel Kitsmiller across the street and noticed all the cars & work trucks pulling in. I walked over to check it out. The display case was packed will many different types of breakfast tacos. Ordered one & it was so good I got other.... More

I've stopped here twice. The first time was fair to good. The second time was NOT GOOD AT ALL. Had it been the first, no second time would have happened. In fairness to the place, some of my local friends eat there regularly and give it higher marks than do I.

Truly quality barbeque where you won't be disappointed. This is a take out only. Come early before they run out and only open til 3:00 pm. We picked up a sliced brisket sandwich that comes on bread and a chopped beef on a bun. Comes with everything on the side, pickles, onions, sauce, jalapeño and chips. Add an oversized triple...

The real deal. No hype, no sauces. Just the best dang pulled pork and ribs we'd had in a looooong time. Bare bones, sit at the picnic tables and enjoy the awesomeness. Always ask for the Pico - it is fresh and muy flavorful. The hidden surprise was the comal they use for the tortillas.

Tiny BBQ on 290 East in Fredericksburg, TX. Sorta across from the ACE hardware. Small BBQ pit building sits on corner, but you go inside tiny store beside the pit to order takeout. Dad is a pit master, daughter is a chef. The BBQ is very good and so is the peach cobbler. Open Thursday-Sunday till 3:00 or they run... More

First of all, the appearance may be deceiving to some. It was to us initially. We were a party of 6. And when we walked in and saw there was no inside sitting, we walked out. Well, thank goodness, we changed our minds and went back. The food was great!!! We all loved it. My wife said it was best... More

I went to Fredricksburg today and stopped in for a brisket taco with pico (must have with pico as it was fresh and so delicious). The taco was so good I went ahead and ordered a full rack of ribs, pound of pulled pork, Spanish rice, and BBQ sauce to go. Very fast and friendly service and the prices were... More

This place looks nasty from the outside, but a friend recommended I try it. From the moment I walked in the door it felt dirty. I ordered 2 breakfast tacos, one for myself and one for my husband. They were disgusting, the egg was crusty and hard and we could not finish them. I have never tried the bbq but... More
