Cowboys has the best BBQ in Batesville, Arkansas. Unfortunately, the service is terrible. I was a regular customer for several years until the service became so bad that I stopped eating there. The other day I started craving ribs and, knowing that the service would likely be lacking, I decided to bypass all that and place a carry out order.... More

At least that's what my wife was told, after calling to speak with someone after receiving poor takeout service twice in a row. First time, I received a BBQ beef salad with precisely zero beef. Basically, I received a handful of prepackaged lettuce, a packet of ranch and a generous amount of BBQ sauce and crackers. Anyway, we called in... More

If you like barbecue, and are in Batesville, you go here. Ribs, loaded potatoes, everything I've gotten here has been outstanding. Friendly staff. The building is a bit odd, feels like you're in a trailer, and there's the usual good-ol-boy decorations, so I wouldn't generally go here on date night.

This is a very basic bbq fast food joint. The baked beans are flavorful and a must-try. Everything else is just regular bbq. Great place for a pulled pork sandwich. Nothing fancy. Super affordable for a lunch with friends or laid back family dinner.

Great BBQ. The friendliness of the waitstaff is hit or miss, but the food is excellent. My husband is not a BBQ fan and loves the food at this place.
