Real authentic BBQ in Midland

Award winning barbecue, excellent food, and decent prices. My only complaint is you never really know if they will be open when you want to eat there. They sometimes close the restaurant to go to BBQ competitions.

While most restaurants in midland are at best "good for midland" Bone Daddy's is genuinely good. They could hold their own against BBQ joints in Memphis or KC. I just wish they were open longer hours.

In the area visiting the kids for Easter, stopped in for lunch. As far a bbq joints this was run of the mill. Nothing was bad but nothing jumped out as great. I had a sampler with ribs, brisket & pulled pork. The brisket was the best of the 3 meats with the ribs 2nd. Definitely worth a stop to... More

This is authentic barbecue. The ribs are delicious, but they're not for everybody. They are meaty and well seasoned, and intensely smoky. So smoky in fact, that it might be too much for some people. They're also a bit of work to eat - those with dentures should steer clear. The cornbread biscuits are delicious! So is the potato salad,... More

I have experienced this cuisine twice. The food gets rave reviews. Both times it was catered. Personally I do prefer a tomato based BBQ sauce. Theirs is more like the Texas style BBQ. Liquid smokey burnt blackish so I did not care for the ribs. However their BBQ chicken was somewhat better because you can remove the skin. Beans slaw... More

We enjoy the takeout pulled pork, chicken, and brisket….any of it is excellent. Sides need a little work as potato salad could use some fresher ingredients but other than that we love it,

I've only had the pulled pork sandwich and french fries here. I've had it several times. Portions are very generous. Hours are a little different sometimes. When they go out of town the restaurant is closed. Call ahead to see if they are open before going.

We were craving ribs the other night and hoped Bone Daddy's would be open. Hours are irregular. Hubby drives over and I run in for take-out. We both had the dinner plate of ribs. He gets a entire slab, but can never finish it! I get the 6 ribs, but think I need to switch to 4. The beans are... More

The brisket and pulled pork were good, potato salad and cole slaw are homemade and not terrific. Maybe the beans are better. The tables and plastic glasses were not as clean as I would expect for Midland.
