It is the best BBQ but the owner leaves a lot to be desired. He's rude in my opinion and has been rude when calling for catering or big call ahead orders. But we continue to go because we love the food. It's a hole in the wall place, old and dusty. But... best BBQ in town.

Seriously it is better than others who claim they have the best BBQ. I've eaten BBQ in other towns that boast of the best... they don't come close to Brandon Iron.

Stopped on our trip, only a mile off highway. So glad we chose it for lunch! Best ribs we have ever eaten! Brisket was yummy also, we plan to eat here again on our next trip. CASH only, 2 meat plate only 50 cents more!

This came up as the best place for BBQ in Wichita Falls and I have to say it was pretty darn good. Three of us split two 2-meat plates and it was plenty to go around. Ribs, brisket, pork and sausage. All good. The sides were coleslaw, pea salad, beans and fried okra. The Beans were the standout, Excellent! Oh... More

The food was excellent, as usual. We all had a three meat combination platter with onion rings & okra. My Friends had the combination plate and We all raved about the food!! It was reasonably priced as well.

The title says it all. When I think Wichita Falls BBQ, I think Branding Iron. Good food, down to earth staff.

Great food in cool local atmosphere. They have to-go but eat in for the extras. The sides are amazing. Get a multi-meat plate, you won't be sad.

I’m surprised there aren’t more BBQ places with this style of service. You walk in and go through a sort of cafeteria-style line and ask for whatever you want. Don’t quote me on this but I believe it was about $10 for 1 or 2 meats and two sides, which is plenty of food to fill you up. I ordered... More

The Branding Iron use to be one of my favorite BBQ places in town, but after the last few trips, it seems to be the middle of the pack BBQ place in town. I'm not comparing this place to the chain places but to the privately owned ones in town. I do like the way you order and how the... More
