Served right on a piece of paper

It was by chance that I stumbled about this restaurant, because the one next door had a long line waiting to be seated. What I found was a real surprise. Everything was very basic, no plates, just a piece of paper on a tablet. You buy the meat by weight, Beef Brisket, Sausages, Pulled Pork, Ribs by... read more

I love barbecue in just about any form, on ribs, shredded pork, chicken, you name it. So, I was eager to try this new restaurant in Bloomfield, NM, a place resembling a culinary desert. The town is surrounded by oil and gas exploration -- what do you expect. Well, it was very disappointing, to say the least. A self-serve place... More

I go to eat Barbeque for the flavor. Serious Texas Bar-B-Q has no flavor. No good charcoal, no good smoke, not even decent spice. It taste as close to boil meat as possible. Good barbeque should taste good without the sauce, I found my self having to drink my food with the sauce on the table. Definitely not visiting this... More

Pretty darn good for fast food! One of the best pulled pork sandwiches I've had. The cherry-chipotle salsa complimented the pork well. Will definitely be back!

The restaurant is really modest and I understood this is a chain. This is not a fine dining since you need to pick up your order at the counter yourself. We ordered

Unfriendly staff, cold dry food, gross sauces, didn't even have regular BBQ sauce, very little variety on the menu and way over priced.

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.
