BBQ & DR.Pepper

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.

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

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

Very good food and the staff were very friendly. The restrooms were clean and they made me and my family feel welcomed and not like another customer bothering them.

We found this place while visiting our son at Fort Hood. We live in Georgia and I've always heard how great Texas bbq is, so we found Petty's through the TripAdvisor app. We were not disappointed. We ordered the Petty pack, which was 2 meats (we chose pulled pork and brisket) with 3 sides, and an order of pork ribs.... More

I did not go to the restaurant. We had Petty's cater our sports banquet that Knights Court Booster club sponsors for our athlete teams. The food was excellent and the service was very good. The meats were tender and the side dishes were tasty. We have 3 banquets a year and we have finally found someone whose food satisfies our... More
