This place serves the best BBQ in East Texas. Church members cook and serve. Dine-in customers eat family style at big wooden tables & benches. There is no shortage of food or homey atmosphere. This is down home fantastic & people come from everywhere to experience the "Church of The Holy Smoke" BBQ.

Great people to visit with while they got my to-go order ready. Once I was home the food was still wonderful

My wife & I stopped for a late night snack. Shared a bacon cheese burger & onion rings. Quick service with very pleasant drive thru attendant. Pleased with freshness of burger and rings. Good fast food.

Oredered a pound of brisket and a pound of pork ribs to go. Very reasonably priced. I ordered a coke and man gave me a cup of ice. I looked around for a machine or whatever and, finding none, asked where to get the coke? Guy turns around and digs a WARM coke can out of ice chest. Really. Brisket... More

We pulled up to this unassuming building with a minimal (we parked on the grass) parking lot, almost no sign and a smoker on the front porch. Inside we were greeted as soon as we walked in the door. Folding tables covered with laminated advertising, a stereo system from K mart and the nicest friendliest staff you could imagine. You... More

Trekked out to Huntsville for Church BBQ and once again was not disappointed. The $20 for the all you can eat is well worth the price just for the meat servings you get on the first plate. (which was more than enough) Service is always fast and the staff is always helpful and friendly as well as timely on the... More

My boyfriend and I are both HUGE foodies and, being a Texas girl, I knew I couldn't turn down some good ol' BBQ. I have had a lot of BBQ in... More

If you don't go for the food, go for the experience. Friend told me about it. Menu is basic. BBQ is good. Could have been cooked a little longer as it wasn't quite falling off the bone but the flavor was great. Sides were yummy. Had to try out the pie. Another good choice. Check it out. We will be...

I couldn't make my mind up and when it was my turn to order I blurted out brisket and so glad I did. I didn't finish all of it so I'd have room for desert. Luckily for me, I got the last piece of pecan pie. I was disappointed that for $2.50 it was only four bites and two of... More
