Well past its prime

Womack's was a great disappointment. It looks like it should serve authentic Texas barbecue, but doesn't. The meat was fatty and the sides a great disappointment. It was convenient, so we ate there, but shouldn't have. I'd avoid Womack's and fine something better.

My first clue that this wasn't real BBQ should have been that you couldn't smell BBQ. Where's the smoke? Where's the grill??? We were a little taken back by the prices. This place is pretty pricey for a dive (restroom behind the building, down an ally and smaller than a broom closet). My husband had the 1/2 sampler and I... More

First of all, when we got seated there was a sewer like smell coming from the kitchen. That should have been our red light to get up and run out of there. We decided, crazily, we would stay because we were in the mood for bbq & dismissing it as a rusty pipe. Big mistake. We ordered beef ribs which... More

Hole in the wall place - no view, no atmosphere, broken credit card machine, just great BBQ and really good dessert. Three sauces: Mild, Spicy and Cry Like a Baby Hot.

The service was so bizzare and lethargic we actually thought Rod Serling would step out from the kitchen! We waited forever to get two beers and then when the "Bar-b-que" combination basket (yes un-identifiable animal product drowned in sauce resting in wax paper nestled in a dirty plastic basket) arrived it was cold. Could have been due to the fact... More

We ate there once shared the combo plate. We had friendly waitresses but we were very surprised that our side orders were served in what looked like sauce containers. The meat was not at all disappointing although if you are really hungry you may not feel you've had enough. For dessert we had the homemade sweet potato pie. The pie... More
