The Back Porch BBQ restaurant is one place in La Grange, TX that I look forward to when in the area. The beef brisket is very good flavor with a tenderness that just requires very little chew effort, ribs (pork) are cooked to my desired level with tender meat that almost falls off the bone, yumm! They have a few... More

A stop for the family when driving back and forth from Austin to Houston. Wasn't feeling like a huge meal so ordered a salad with some brisket on it, delicious. Another in the group went with the BBQ nachos, the cheese sauce is incredible! Pulled pork tacos also a family fave.

Good brisket and ribs. Outdoor seating is available. A little higher cost than most, but good food. Set up in an old house that has been restored.

Visited here with my wife while exploring La Grange. The building itself appears to be a converted house. Upon entering we were greeted and seated immediately. We started with an order of Frickles (fried pickles, $6.50). They were good, but the heavy coating took away from the flavor of the pickle. My wife ordered the 2 Que Combo ($12.95) with... More

Stopped in with my daughter for a quick bite. We both ordered burgers and they were both delicious! Handmade patties, fresh bread and seasoned perfectly. We also ordered the freckles and it was a large portion. And tasted good as well

We have eaten here frequently in the past because the burgers are just awesome! My husband and I stopped by on a Friday night at 6:45 pm and were told, rather rudely, by the young lady waitressing, that the restaurant was closed because they "ran out of everything." I can understand running out of barbeque, but how does a restaurant... More

Choose the spicy one it's good but not really spicy. I was alone so I'm a people watcher. I watched the waitress interact with the customers.... More

Driving through this quite little town I was recommended back porch bbq from the cashier at a shell station. I ended up having fried pickles and the back porch sandwich. The sandwich is a mix of sausage, pulled pork, and brisket. Topped with fresh onions and pickles. I know the normal bbq sandwich. Bitting into it will make you rethink... More

Kinda average. I've had better bbq up north than here. The meats were chewy and the waitress had that lovely teenage attitude. The warm potato sald was great, the best thing on the menu.
