The food was great and the atmosphere was very rustic. The selection was limited, but ample for a small place.

Being from Texas I was stoked to find a BBQ joint just outside my hotel. Finding out these people were from Pecos Texas was icing on the cake! Brisket, ribs, pork, chicken & sausage were all good. Potato Salad, slaw and beans were good and seasoned well. Got what I thought was chess pie, ended up peanut butter. AWESOME! My... More

The brisket here is by far the best anywhere in North Alabama. Really everything is good. They offer brisket, chicken, pulled pork, ribs and mild or hot smoked sausage. They have the standard sides, but the baked beans are fabulous. The meat carver is constantly scraping the meat scraps into the bean pan. Bonus! This place is tiny and easy... More

This place can easily be missed if traveling but what a great find! Is relatively small and there was a line that ventured to the back door but worth the small wait. Buffet style serving line & the best BBQ in Madison!

Best BBQ around. This is a very small place (not much more than a shack) decorated with an authentic western feel. The meats are hand cut and trimmed of excess fat for you as you order at a serving line.

The out-the-door lunch line tells the story. The smoked brisket is fork tender, and best-served on the off-menu "Chuckwagon Sandwich". This sandwich includes a sizable portion of brisket and juicy spears of smoked sausage. Add the baked beans (which contain brisket and sausage trimmings) and a homemade pie, you will be in heaven. It's a little pricey and the hours... More

Excellent bbq...Texas style in Alabama. Brisket sausage ribs. No need for sauce. I will definitely return to this joint next time I am in the area. Every bit worth the price. Best brisket I've ever had.

#1 rated in Madison is why we ate here. After several attempts to eat here before we were finally there during hours of operation to get a meal on Friday evening at 5 pm. We were actually very early and were invited by the staff to sit inside and wait while they readied everything. The place began to fill with... More

We have been going to Chuck Wagon since the restaurant opened and have never been disappointed by the great BBQ there. I especially love the melt in your mouth brisket but usually get a combo plate with the sausage. The chicken is moist and very tasty as well. I especially like to put their white sauce on the chicken. The... More

Try the brisket and sausage. The best in greater Huntsville. The beans are excellent as well. Best deal for the money is to buy it by the pound to go.
