Best barbecue ever!!!

We've been coming to the Madison area for years and finally moved here in 2014. We would always eat at Chuck Wagon when we visited, except for July. The owner normally takes the whole month of July off to visit family in Texas, really nice guy. It is very busy, especially during the noon hour, but... read more

I was told to try this place when I relocated from Fort Worth, TX to Madison, AL. I was very apprehensive of anything that says "Texas BBQ" because I know it is usually a lie. No one can do brisket right outside of Texas was my motto. I stopped by here with my son and the line was out the... More

This is a small "hole in the wall" type restaurant, family owned and run. The owner smokes his meat on site, and hours are limited so he can prepare accordingly. The seating is limited, and quaint, also homemade; his wife made the denim and bandana cushions for the chairs, and are they cute! When it is open, get there early,... More

Chuck wagon is the BEST BBQ I have encountered in Madison and Huntsville. The brisket is perfect every time and a bonus is the chef/owner carves it fresh when you order in front of you then he slides the flakes and leftover pieces into a pan of BBQ beans right next to him. So get the beans as they are... More

This place serves up some of the best BBQ you will ever stuff in your face. Ribs, pulled pork, chicken, brisket, sausages, OMG, this place does it like no other. All of it is juicy and tender. Throw in some sides of baked beans made with BBQ chunks or potato salad, some toppings of your choice, toasted bread, and some... More

The owner of the hotel we were staying at said we should go here since we were disappointed with the previous BBQ recommendations that we tried the night before. The place is very small, but a lot of people come here to get take out so there are normally a table or 2 to eat at. The brisket is wonderful... More

We recently at Chuckwagon and really enjoyed the food. The brisket and sausage were very tasty. We are from Kansas City, where almost all of the BBQ is excellent and we highly recommend Chuckwagon!

Chuck Wagon BBQ has the best BBQ in town. This place is almost always packed. You have to go there after 1.

Best Brisket this side of the Sabine river. I'm from NOLA and we know and love food. Yeah, you have to stand in line (the place is small), and sure maybe you have had better Texas BBQ if you grew up on a cattle ranch in Texas but I doubt you will find any better around these parts. The other... More
