Friendly service, good cheap eats!

Tried this place on my second day in town and was immediately greeted upon entering, very friendly staff and good food. I ordered the pork with Mac n cheese and coleslaw and it was delish! The lemonade was also very good! I will definitely recommend

I ordered the pulled pork sandwich plate, service was quick and the sandwich was HUGE.. I used the sweet & spicy sauce and came away very impressed. Great sweet sandwich bread and the green beans were DELICIOUS. Sweet Tea was better than most I've had in Texas too.. I highly recommend Pettys BBQ

Will not go back! Poor service, overpriced and bad bar-b-q😖. Has lots of advertising but it doesn't back up the product! Go elsewhere and you will be ahead!

Went here with my family earlier today and it was great! I had their combo plate of ribs and pulled pork. Sides of Mac n cheese and green beans. FANTASTIC. The ribs were quite large and soft. The pulled pork was more of a chopped variety. Both smoked and seasoned well. The Mac n cheese was THICK and cheesy. The... More

Called for Saturday eve takeout, and he wrote the order down but waited until I got there to cut it so that it would be better. While one guy cut the other talked, and these boys are passionate about smoked meat. They passed a couple samples of things I had not ordered and made suggestions that were all solid, including...

Imagine being in a customer-friendly, no frills barbecue restaurant where the servers/cooks let you sample anything you'd like, before you order. Well, imagine no more. This is the place. Jerome, was super-accomidating. My wife and I ordered the ribs plate, and the brisket plate. Everything was cooked to perfection. Even the cornbread was moist. The green beans and cole slaw... More

BBQ was ok, staff was friendly and very helpful. Dr.Pepper bbq sauce was good. Prices were average. We bought one of the family packs, we had leftovers for the next day.

No real wow factor in this barbecue. However the sides were very good like the string beans and potato salad. Think twice about ordering cornbread though because its dry and could use some butter melted on top of it. The prices were fair and reasonable.

We ate at Petty's last Friday and as usual the BBQ was delicious! We had ribs, brisket, beans and potato salad. We also ordered a side of fried cabbage...OMG that was amazing. On Wednesday's they have collard greens which are so good. The cornbread is also very good. We've eaten there several times since moving into the area and continue... More
