This restaurant is in an old home that was converted. Very nice layout, huge portions, friendly staff. Food is amazing and is cooked for you when you order it, and it very much feels like you went to go visit your grandma for dinner. Do not leave without ordering their cornbread-you'd really be missing out!!

We have ordered from texan a few times. They never disappoint, the pulled pork and bbq sauce are delicious. Make sure you try the cornbread. The price's are good for the amount of food you get, we spent $60 on take out, fed 5 people and had leftovers for the next day.

Great non-chain restaurant for a laid back lunch with the family including 2 kids under five years old.

I travel 95% of the time for work,and 98% of my reviews are positive; but I wouldn't be honest if I let this go by. I was taken here for lunch and was disappointed. People said great things about it, and the staff was Wonderful, But Barbecue is NOT boiled Ribs with sauce thrown on top. Sorry, but it's just not.
When, just to be sure, I ordered a small side of ribs, sauce on the side, sure enough, they were boiled. That's not BBQ, never has been. If that is what passes for BBQ in the NW Suburbs of Chicago, well, next time I'll just get a burger.
Other than that the place was great. But than again, that what the place is.

The Texan Bar-B-Q is an older,(over 30 years!) established, well kept barbecue joint. If you want chrome and a burger, go to a Sonic. The Texan is a true, old style, family barbecue joint. It feels like home as soon as you enter and are greeted by the wonderful gal at the ordering counter. No pig on a stick to carry to your table, just your receipt with a hand written number on the back. Seat yourself in the multi-roomed dining area and enjoy. No open pole barn style here. Good word of caution: if you want to sample everything, don't order the sampler! There is so much on it you won't be able to finish it! Great food. Great price. Great people!
