Was ok not the best

The rib was a little over done so it was kind of dried almost to be a jerky. Probably try other BBQ restaurants.

The food was so terrible we did not finish our meal. It was the worst bbq I have ever had. My wife wanted to eat bbq and we thought that a Texas bbq would surely be good...NOT. The clerk at the hotel liked this place and suggested it. The pulled pork was rancid tasting and the ribs were very tough.... More

They have Elgin sausage there, and, well, yum! Nicest staff, seriously yummy bbq and in a very relaxed, homey, but, clean atmosphere.

We had a great lunch while we took a break from our event at the Farmington Museum. We had brisket and turkey, enjoying both very much. We recommend this restaurant. Phil and Rosanne Archuletta, coauthors Women Marked for History

Has a Texas boy I love good barbecue and you might argue that this is the best barbecue in Farmington. Portions are good, service is prompt and the food is ok.

I was surprised to see this place had a drive thru. I enjoyed my BBQ sandwich and thought it was tasty. My traveling companion got heart burn later from it, and we both kept burping it up... but hey, that may just be us. I am usually not susceptible to indigestion though. It was a nice alternative to other fast... More

Amazing!!! Never had as good BBQ as that! You wouldn't think Farmington has good BBQ because it is a very hispanic and native town but it is amazing!

Ordered their main sandwich, Brisket with all the trimmings. Brisket was cut into chunks rather than pulled. You add your choice of sauce. My brisket had chunks of fat and small pieces of gristle. Now how do you do that with Brisket? By not trimming the cut of meat before cooking it. Despite the cherry pleasant outlook of the staff,... More

On a recent trip I had the opportunity to eat here twice. I was impressed with the pulled pork, enough to order it both times. The sauce is merely acceptable; one to sweet another to weird with cherries and chipotle. The meat was tender and smokey on its own. My friends had the beef and it was delectable and very... More

This review is for the Serious Texas BBQ in Bloomfield, not that far from Farmington. It's at the site of the old Triangle Cafe. The meat is smoked, with a good flavor. I liked the pepper sauce. Their regular BBQ sauce is a little sweet for my tastes, but when I mixed the two together was pretty good. We got... More
