Darn good BBQ!!

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... read 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

Chuck Wagon is a dump, and I mean that as a compliment. I have been there twice, and both times, the meat is high quality and the portions are generous. Today, I had the 3-meat combo: sausage, brisket and chicken. The chicken and sausage were very good. The brisket was tender, but it lacked flavor. The cole slaw, the only... More

Put on an old pair of jeans, baseball cap and tee shirt, you're going to eat BBQ. I knew we were in the right place when everyone was a local, half the people were ordering carry out and there was a line. We both had the brisket dinners and they were outstanding; perfect smoke line, tender as filet, perfect meat/smoke... More

The brisket was as it was supposed to be. Good Texas BBQ needs no sauce. The brisket was moist and tender. OMG yum. I would say the sausage and beans were the deciding factor for the 4 rating over a 5. I will return for my long missed taste of Texas.

Been meaning to go here for a while now, and I just recently got the opportunity. I left far from being disappointed. I love Texas style BBQ, and I especially love brisket. I went with a three meat platter of brisket, pulled pork, and sausage. The brisket had some great flavor to it, can tell some love and care went... More
