Description: Welcome to Texas Outlaw BBQ, judged America's GREATEST RIBS and Barbecue...
Welcome to Texas Outlaw BBQ, judged America's GREATEST RIBS and Barbecue all over the nation. Our restaurant in Elizabethtown, KY is a reflection of our storied National Competition BBQ Cooking Team, which has been competing all over North America for decades winning over 300 national awards to date. Each year, we serve up well over a quarter-million pounds of BBQ from coast-to-coast. We started in Houston, TX and our restaurant has been operating in Elizabethtown, KY for the past 15 years. We use our same seasoning and slow-smoking style that has given us the award-winning flavors you are about to experience in our award-winning ribs, beef brisket, pulled pork, turkey and chicken. We are REAL TEXAS BBQ with the authentic pink smoke ring in the meat created by our spices and 6-13 hours smoking our meats low-and-slow. The smoke ring means you're getting real hickory wood smoked BBQ, not some white, mushy, boiled, broiled or baked meat. We didn't earn the title of GREATEST RIBS IN AMERICA or LEGENDS OF BBQ by serving anything but quality meat, spiced and slow-smoked in the best made smokers in the world. You can be assured you will never eat pre-cooked, frozen or microwaved meat at TEXAS OUTLAW BBQ. Our smokers operate 24 hours/day, around the clock and if we don't sell it tonight we throw it away tonight. So as my grandmother always said, "The proofs in the pudding". So sit back, relax and enjoy your meal. We hope to see you soon!

bad dinner experience!

We stopped to eat a good dinner and it was not good at all. The sirloin withsaute mushroom tasted like old meat and the chicken with Alfredo sauce got me sick. I tried to finish it but I just couldn't. It was a bad dinner experience!

Thanks so much for your review and giving us the opportunity to serve you. It's always rewarding when our guests recognize those little touches that we put allot of extra effort into, such as our scratch-made Ranch dressing and homemade bread pudding. Hope to see you again soon! Texas Outlaw BBQ Guest Relations More

We went to Texas Outlaw several years ago and the food was not very good. After the place was closed and re-opened we decided to give it another try. We waited 5 minutes before anyone came to check us in then waited another 20 minutes or so before getting seated. The waitress took our drink order, came back to take... More

Food was good; but restaurant manager was miserable. We called ahead for a party of 20. They indicated they would have to seat us in groups by family. Not a problem. They also said they had room to serve us. The last family of 5 waited over 20 minutes after check-in. Family inquired on status of table and manager was... More

When every other restaurant at the exit has a full parking lot, you should probably pass up the only one with lots of empty spaces. I wish we had! Our expectations were immediately lowered upon reading the Specials board at the front door where guests were encouraged to try "reward-winning" BBQ sauce. Seriously! What ever happened to proofreading? The service... More

The food is excellent and the people, atmosphere and upkeep are great as well. This is much better than Texas Roadhouse. Very good service and a willingness to do whatever a customer asks, within reason of course. Go ahead and ask, you might get slapped if you get too fresh! I was here for business for 7 days over two... More
