Consistently Good

On my trips to Artesia, I try to stop in here on regular basis and either have lunch or take out their family rib pack. They have the best ribs anywhere in SE New Mexico. Very tender fall off the bone and we don't use any sauce with them since they are so good plain. Their other meats are... read more

We visited Henry's on the way to Carlsbad. Actually, our timing was all planned on arriving at Henry's for lunch.... From the moment we walked in, it was clear that we had struck gold...the entire Artesia coaching staff of 10+ were there bearing down on BBQ. All types of barbecue, homemade sides, berry cobblers, etc. I have a family with... More

Great little BBQ place and it was easy to find, right off Main at. Outdoor and indoor seating. Delicious food and very nice people.

Great BarbeCue in a friendly restaurant. If you like Southwestern Barbecue and all the sides, this is the right place in Artesia. We had the beef plates and couldn't even finish them, not because they were wonderful, but very large servings. A good choice for Artesia.

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 I would expect to... 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.
