Not much variety, but very good at what it does.

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.

Atmosphere is nothing to write home about, but they stuffed me to the brim, and I was in love with their barbecue sauce.

I always going to Cowboy's Barbeque to eat. My favorite is their Loaded Baked Potato with Pork. Their drive is convenient when I take my food home to eat also.

We were in town and decided to eat here as recommended by from friends from the area. The BBQ was not bad, it depends on how good the BBQ is that you are used to. The prices were really good and the beef brisket that I had was tasty. My son had the BBQ nachos, he said the meat was... More

First of all we never could find the cool red barn pictured on the other reviews. The service here was terrible as we were ignored and treated with disdain (I assume because we weren't locals?). The odd ting was that the sausage, chicken and ribs were quite good and the brisket was inedible. It was dry and tasteless and tasted... More
