Best ever smoked BBQ chicken

and homemade white sauce!!! If you haven't been to the South, please just go here. This represents what we are ALL ABOUT. Slow cookin', slow talkin', gun rights advocates. They close at 2pm or when the food runs out (cuz it's freshly smoked!)

The best in town without a doubt. If you really want to experience good BBQ food you must visit this place. Fast service, great food, great prices and most importantly they support our Military people. Thanks!

The barbeque is delicious. Be prepared to eat a lot since portions are large. Also be prepared to wait as the lunch line is long! Once you eat here you will become aware that this is Texas style BBQ which is a nice change from the ubiquitous North Alabama style BBQ served everywhere else.

This is really good BBQ!!! Almost hate to tell people about it because it is a small place but very very good! They are mainly open for lunch. Only open for "supper" a couple nights a week, so check their hours before you go. I had the pulled pork plate with beans and potato salad and it was delicious. The... More

Be prepared to wait, and the line will be out the back door. You watch them prepare your meal, adding your own sauce before you reach the cashier. I have a tomato sensitivity so I'm always looking for some good brisket without the sauce. This place hit the spot. Hubby had pulled pork and sausage and he was in heaven.... More

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 worth the wait. We... 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
