My wife wanted to celebrate an event at work today and we pulled into the lot at Henry's as we continue to sample the eating establishments here in Artesia. We arrived about 4:30 pm on Wednesday, March 12, 2014. First thing you get is the smell. That delicious BBQ smell. Inside you come right up against the menu and serving... More

Wow....this was a real surprise. Great food and such friendly service. A very casual place where you move along the line ordering what you want and they are very generous portions. Husband had chicken fried steak (special today) and 'spicy' pinto beans that he loved as a side along with mashed potatoes....all of which were very good. I had an... More

This is not just a great restaurant for Artesia it is a great BBQ period. I had beef and pork ribs that were perfectly smoked, the chili with sausage and brisket chunks was awesome and allowed me to try those items, and the green beans were perfectly seasoned.

Henry's is situated in a former Dairy Queen, so they didn't have much to work with as far as their surroundings. Location is great...right in mid-Main Street. The owner/operators are wonderful people with generous hearts; always helping the kids with fund raisers, community drives, etc. The food is scrumptious, with two bar-b-que sauces to choose from, depending on your preferred...

Delicious food!! I'm a vegetarian (*gasp*!) and the meat even looked good! My partner loved the BBQ meat, and we both enjoyed the beans, potatoes, rolls, and a few other sides. Very cool guys working there too. SO delish!!

I came across this place from simple word of mouth while driving back home through Artesia. I was sceptical at first by the appearance. I was expecting a steakhouse-esque building, and was in a building that looks to possibly be a former Dairy Queen. I was surprised to find it not only clean and well organized, but the staff was...
