Great BBQ

This is a very nice locally owned BBQ restaurant. It is very popular during the lunch time so a possible short wait at noon. The BBQ plates are very good and the BBQ sandwiches are equally good. The sandwiches are possibly the best deal in town since they are very good, large and priced below what... read more

Hands down the best place in the town to eat. I've ate bbq all over the country and this rivals the best anywhere. The owners are great friendly folks as well. The only problem is the place is too small for its popularity. Tough too find parking and seats during peak times.

Good fast service, plenty of seating, good prices, nice selection on the line. I almost always get brisket at a BBQ, and the other items looked good. Good sides and desserts. Memorabilia on the walls, good local feel to the place. Lots to like here. I'll eat here again next time I'm in Artesia.

I was a little standoffish about finding decent BBQ in southern New Mexico, but was pleasantly surprised. The brisket had good flavor and melted in my mouth. The side choices were also flavorful. Didn't try the ribs.... perhaps on the way back through.

Have had better barbque, but this was OK. Was not very barbquey if that is a words. Not much smoke flavor. Meet on my pulled pork sandwich was ok, tender. Price was high for the serving we got. Blackberry cobbler was good.

Always enjoy the food here. We have sampled most items on the menu. Favorite, brisket with green chili in it.

Henry's has great meat and great sides. The wait staff are friendly and helpful. It is also one of my more expedient experiences I've had in Artesia.

My wife has been craving BBQ since we left TX last Saturday. This hit the spot, food was great, best part was there wings, and the service was great.

Almost every time I go to Artesia, I stop and pick up a rack of ribs to bring home for rib night at our casa. Even without any of their spectacular hot and spicy BBQ sauce, these ribs just melt in your mouth and are delicious. With the sauce even better.

The food was so good. We especially loved the rolls and the sauce, along with everything else! Yum! The staff went above and beyond to make us happy customers. They were the kindest people. We were so happy we came.
