We had a coupon, so decided to try out this place. The service was friendly and the food was very good! Pretty much your "typical" BBQ place, good food, good BBQ sauces, a relaxed setting and friendly people!

Have been going to Brians regularly for 8 years - this time with a group of 6. As before, I ordered the lunch brisket (smaller size) with the salad bar. Should have been $9.99. Got the bill, was charged $11.99 PLUS $2.50 bc it was a "premium" meat. The meat was dry & definitely not "slow smoked for 18 hours."... More

This is our place for group gathering on Mondays, the nickel beers help but when attending as a group it can't be beat.

When to Brian's last night for my birthday dinner, and I feel that I made the right choice. Allison our waitress was very friendly and prompt with our order. I got a Brisket sandwich, that was pretty amazing I must say. Could have used a little more meat on it, but otherwise 18 hours cooked it just right. Everyone else... More

Went here with family Saturday evening. The place was not very busy but only three waitresses. Had to wait to be seated, wait for waitress, wait for food, wait for. Check, wait to pay. On top of that the brb were burnt.

Out for a quick bite to eat with the family. The girls at the front register were very friendly, however, our waitress was ok. She seemed tired, and the food was ok. The place really has room to be great, but I think we picked the wrong day. All of our entrees seemed to be dry. Maybe we will try... More

Please adjust the climate so we don't have to wear jackets while we eat! Otherwise we had a pretty good meal. 2 of us ordered the bbq sandwiches, the other order was the salad bar(vegetarian). The bbq was delicious, just disappointed that it came on a regular hamburger style bun versus garlic Texas Toast. Our server was friendly and patient... More

Went to a wedding that Brian's was catering, the food was good, only problem the bride paid for 150 and only around 100 people showed up. Now you would expect there to be extra food, especially since a few people brought vegan dishes and one lady made BBQ chicken. Well thank God they did make this extra food, because There... More

This Bar-be-que Restaurant should be giving Sonny's ( incredibly the #3 eatery in DeLand) a run for their money so, it must be all about Location. We actually found them while unsuccessfully searching for another restaurant. Their signature benchmark, appears to be, their RIBS. These are Big Cows, with much larger servings of the Main Entree(s) then the competition. My... More

Thank you so much for your comments, and I have shared them with our staff. Sounds like we had a little confusion with the way things are placed on your bill....but I trust you worked things out. I think you had the Wine price and not the draft beer price. With regards to the beer pricing....Just so you know...Monday Night... More
