Great Trout and Catfish!

I've eaten the BBQ here before and it was good -- but a bit on the fatty-side. However, this last time I ordered the trout and catfish and was enthralled! Truly, this was one of the best tasting fish plates I've had in a LONG time -- not greasy, muddy, overly breaded, etc. Just delicious... read more

Stopped for lunch on our way through town. We had the smoked brisket and pulled pork sandwiches. Both were very good. We will definitely eat here again.

I've eaten at Love's twice in the last three weeks. The ribeye steak I ate was cooked exactly as I asked for and the sides of beans and french fries were good tasting but moderate in quantity. The second time we ate here, I had the shrimp and catfish with beans and french fries. Again the sides were moderate quantities.... More

Prices are reasonable and the food is decent, but I won't go out of my way to eat here. Most of their sides are fried, so not much to choose from when you're trying to stay away from greasy food.

If you been reading my reviews here and following my quest for good barbeque, you would know how picky I am about food in general, and what I consider great BBQ to look, smell and taste like, especially the taste. I may have found what I consider to be some of the best in North Texas and be assured I... More

First time at this restaurant while passing through the town. The menu is very diverse, from hamburgers to barbecue to steaks. I tried the chicken fried, which was very good. It came with two sides. Good home cut fries, but the small salad bar wasn't that great. Attentive service and reasonable prices. Definitely worth a try.

The food was off taste and greasy. You could not pay me to eat there. I have friends who feel the same way

Look out for this place or you will breeze right past it. I was hungry at just the right moment. After entering the establishment, I noticed the atmosphere is quite unassuming...typically a good sign of hidden gems in regard to food. In short, the food was great (prime rib sandwich), the wait was only ten minutes, the price was fair,... More

This place looks like any other rinky dink roadside diner and it IS sticky, as others have noted but the food is amazing. I book a lot of miles all over the country and this is my favorite stop, hands down. The barbecue is rich, dark, meaty (not fatty), and succulent. They wanted to have a booth at the Texas... More
