After moving to Huntsville from Dallas, a co-worker told me about what he called the best BBQ. Well, we went for lunch and I was wondering where the BBQ was. It is more like BBQ roast. You haven't experienced BBQ until you have Texas BBQ brisket. This place is just ok, but I've found another place in town with great... More

It may be located in north Alabama but once you walk through the door, you're in Texas. You won't even find an Alabama or Auburn hat hanging on the wall. You will find Texas, Oklahoma, and Tennessee. So I repeat. No Alabama. It doesn't appear to irritate the locals, until maybe now if they read this, because there is ALWAYS... More

The brisket is outstanding - we special order it when family is in town and pick it up to go. The ribs are also great. This is my kids' favorite barbecue restaurant. Just be sure to check the hours of operation!

This place looks like it would fall down under a strong wind, but inside you will find some of the best BBQ in the area. From pork to beef to chicken, the servings are plentiful and the flavor is great. If you try to go for lunch you had better be there at 1030 or plan to wait outside until... More

Best place in the area to go for Brisket and Sausage. Small location, so it can get crowded with the lunch crowd. Line can be out the door, but it does move fairly quickly.

Texas Brisket done right, I know the slow smoking over hickory is worth it. Each order is prepared right in front of you. We like the slaw and the beans for sides. If you encounter a line, it moves quickly. We will make this a go to for Texas Brisket.

great ribs and brisket. Strange hours so you have to eat on their schedule. Small with not a lot of seating. Paring is in the rear. slow but each order is individually prepared.

The best brisket I have had anywhere (including Dallas). This guy has a crow every day lining up at 10:30 so they can be at the head of the line when he opens at 11:00.

I love Chuckwagon! It's the best BBQ around. They cut right in front of you as you order so it takes a little longer but it's worth the wait. It's not the cheapest barbecue around but again it's definitely worth it. Highly recommend the pulled pork, spicy sausage (not too spicy) and ribs, but all the meats are great!
