We had to stop in based on the reputation of this great little BBQ place and must say we were not disappointed. It is definitely not a fancy place and could use some TLC in the décor but the food was everything we expected. Since it was our first time here, I had the sampler platter and I can recommend...

We grew up in Borger and there has never been a better BBQ place we have gone to. The family has owned and run this BBQ for over 60 years, maybe longer. It is worth a stop on your way through town. If you live there, you know how great it is.

We were looking for a locally owned restaurant instead of the usual chains we had seen on our 12-hour trip. We had planned to drive back to Amarillo but we’re glad we didn’t. One of us ordered the BBQ plate and the other the grilled chicken plate. They made a substitution for my husband's plate that was very good. The... More

It was pricey with limited selection. I ordered an item off the menu and the waitress asked me "if I was sure that I wanted that item." She proceeded to tell me it looked gross and convinced me to change items. Some other customs in the restaurant were complaining about their food too. The service was slow but extremely friendly.

I think this is the best steakhouse and BBQ in Borger. It's in a good location on Cedar Street; the prices are reasonable; service is good and food is excellent! Highly recommended!

The food we got today was not worth 50.00. The onion rings were way to greasey. The meat was tuff and had no taste, lets just say it was a waste of MONEY. We left with a table full of food that we could not eat. I DO NOT RECOMMEND THIS PLACE AT ALLLLLLLLLL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Sept 15, 2012 we drove from north Texas just to eat at Sutphens. The food was terrible and the dining room was swarming with flies. People at other tables asked for fly swatters. I have been eating at Sutphen's since the 50's and this was my final time. Sorry we made the trip.
