Put on your levis, scootin' boots and cowboy hats, and feast on real Texas style BBQ. They serve up brisket, pork, chicken, sausage, etc., in delicious combinations with extensive side items. I had a rack of ribs with corn on the cob and coleslaw. These items are always good indicators of the workmanship that goes into food preparation in a... More

I've rated this before and it was very good. We went on a Friday night and they were busy. I was a little disappointed in that it wasn't as good as I've had there before. The service was very friendly but a little slow. The fried pickles were awful, usually the best in town but they took them off our... More

I travel a lot - been fortunate to sample barbeque around the country and to really KNOW what is good. Micky Roo's IS GOOD !! If you are looking for true smoke flavored barbeque that is moist and the only place east of Texas where you can get a moist Beef Brisket - this is the place. Every other place... More

The tables, chairs, and stage area have all been improved but the major improvement has been in the consistency of the food, especially the BBQ! Good moist brisket and pork. The quality of the smoked sausage has definitely improved and has become my favorite. The original sauces could be improved or maybe a new sweeter sauce added to the 2... More

During my seven year stay in the lone star state I became a huge fan of two things, TX BBQ and Shiner Bock beer. Happy to know that both of my bases are covered in Franklin, TN. Went there for lunch with my oldest and my youngest son's and we had a great time. We sat outside since the weather... More

This is about as close to Texas-style bbq as I've had outside of Texas. Everything was good but everything required the sauces offered at the tables. Texas bbq has never been about the sauce, it is about the taste of the meat and how it is cooked. That being said, everything was tasty. The sausage was good but not really... More

We ordered the sampler. It was supposed to feed 2 or 3 people. Enough for 4! All of it was excellent, but the ribs were some of the best I have eaten! Highly recommend this casual dining gem. Lots of outdoor seating for warmer weather.

Went here for lunch and it was terrible. None of the food is seasoned. The meat and cheese plate is worse than what I would make at my house for a party and it cost $10. Brisket is super fatty and there were flies everywhere. Don't waste your time or money.
