This place is known for it's great BBQ, and all of the scrumptious sides that one is accustomed in getting with this type of meats. You definitely get your money's worth with the good sized portions from the menu.

I enjoyed the smoked turkey sandwich, but nobody in our crew complain about anything, so it must have been good, hahaha. most of the men had coddlers or pies and they like as well.

Good food and atmosphere. Food is cooked you just pick out what you want and they put it on a plate. Very busy. Had the ribs and they were very good.

perhaps the best bbq around, because it's the ONLY bbq around. The meal I was served was over-cooked and dry.

this is by far the best bbq I have ever eaten. The mashed potatoes with green chiles and the green beans are great sides. It is nice to sit down and just hang out.

Good food and service - and well worth the stop. On every trip to Cloudcroft, we now stop here for lunch. There is a variety of barbecue that is always great. But something one does not find often in such a place is a huge variety of sides. Since I am trying to increase the vegetables in our family's diet,... More

Friendly service, great food, all-in-all a really good place to have a meal. Staff is very friendly and check on you just often enough to let you know you are not forgotten.

We are from Texas and was looking for some good BBQ and we found it at Henry's. We got the sliced beef which was a bit dry and the chopped beef which was pretty good but overall was very satisfied with our pick of restaurants in Artesia. PS: Great cobbler!

Finally, I was able to try Henry's. No parking available (the place was packed at lunchtime) so I had to walk a little. Ordered a pound of smoked sausage, sliced brisket and pulled pork each. And got the spicy bbq sauce. Even hours later, when reheated for dinner, it was pretty darn good. A little pricy by the pound, but... More
