We were staying next door and needed some chow so we checked the place out. Loved the food but it was spendy for BBQ. Smoked turkey needed more flavor but the chili was awesome.

The food here is average. I found the price a bit high for the quality of food. The servers are nice and the decor is ok. I probably wouldn't go back because I'd look for better and I probably wouldn't recommend it for the same reason. This gets it a 3, not a 5.

If have an itch for babeque ribs, we always turn to Longhorn. I've had the chicken but we love their ribs the best. My young adult son loves the spicy sauce and my husband and I love the traditional sauce and that is what really makes the ribs sing. We often get take-out vs. eating in and my hubby likes... More

If you have every enjoyed the good old Texas-style BBQ Longhorn BBQ sells at the Fairgrounds in Puyallup in the Fall, it's worth the effort to drive into Auburn to find them the rest of the year. Craving 'Q, we moseyed up on a Monday evening and tucked into "The Rustler - For Two", a big, family-style ranch house dinner... More

we were a bit hesitant to try it since the neon lights from the outside look funny but the hotel recommended it and we gave it a try. and we were surprised it is a very familiar and good restaurant, we truly enjoyed our meal. the server was very friendly too

When it comes to barbecue, I want to taste two things: meat and smoke. I'm not a fan of overly exuberant applications of sauce or rub. That's why I enjoyed the Longhorn. We visited twice on our recent family vacation. Between us, we tried the brisket, ribs, German sausage and pulled pork. All were first rate. The meats were tender... More

They catered an event my wife helped to organize and they went out of their way to make the event a success. The food was great and plentiful, the staff helpful and knew their stuff. The prices were more than fair as well. I'd definitely use them again.

The food, service and value are sub par. Went last night and sat in the bar. There were a handful of people but by our lack of service you would have thought they were packed. I ordered a chicken wrap and it was good but had to add my own BBQ sauce. My fiancé ordered a brisket sandwich and it... More

My hubby and I were staying next door at the (very nice!) Best Western so this was an easy choice, but it far exceeded our expectations! We were met and warmly greeted by George and promptly seated. You can sit in the dining room or the spacious bar. We chose the bar so we could watch a good baseball game... More

This restaurant was next door to our hotel and being tired we thought we'd try it. What a find! Best "dry" ribs I've ever had and at a reasonable cost. Service was friendly and efficient and the wines were enjoyable (we discovered Zinfandel while there).
