A Texas sized lunch!

I stopped in for lunch a few days ago after a lengthy absence from the Texan and I'm glad I did. I had the brisket sandwich which was really good. My friend had the tacos and really enjoyed them as well. My only disappointment was the fried okra. I always order that when I stop here but this time... read more

We had wanted to go here for some time, and finally got a chance, though we did order the carry-out. Located within a block of the Fox River, this is a rustic restaurant, but the food is great. Even as you walk from the car to the restaurant, you are hit by the delicious smell of the BBQ, which is... More

This restaurant has a rustic decor with interesting artifacts hanging around. It's very casual so we don't worry about the kids making noise and acting goofy sometimes.

Texan BBQ is a great little place in a small town- excellent BBQ! The rib tips are delicious and so is the chicken! Their BBQ sauce is fantastic!! A little on the pricey side and I for sure recommend carry out- their dining space is tiny! If you are in the area- this is a MUST TRY! Their hush puppy... More

This place is by no means fine dining. It has a VERY casual atmosphere and very rustic decore, but fitting for a Texan BBQ. The ribs and sauce are excellent! They just fall off the bones - no knife needed. There are 3 types of BBQ sauce to choose from and I have not had better ribs anywhere else. The... More

The only place I can say is real BBQ in this area. I have been going here for decades. Longevity of business really says it all. I mostly get ribs, sausage and pulled pork. They have a huge menu and I wish I had time to try everything.

We've been looking for a place with good ribs, and we found it! Ribs fall off the bone and I loved the sauce. It's sweet, but not over sweet. And the cornbread was amazing!!! We will be back!
