Good locally owned BBQ

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.

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.

If hungry for good old BBQ, this is definitely the place. As other reviews indicated, all the food is already cooked, so you just select what you want cafeteria style. There were several types of meats, many veggies and desserts too. Drinks were soda, water, or teas. It was comfortable, quick and inexpensive and the serving staff checked in with... More

Really awesome bar b q!!! Finger lickin good actually. Great decor, friendly service, the only negative is that many times there are no tables to sit at because everyone else thinks so too. Truly a golden problem for Restaurant owner John Henry!! Wow- I just made myself hungry describing it!!!
