Kirby's BBQ is the best in the Tricounty area. The food is tasty wih god size servings. Great sweet tea and buttermilk pie. You can't beat this for autentic Texas BBQ. The restaurant is clean and the people who work there are very friendly. Come try it!!

I went to Kirby's on Saturday for lunch and see why it's rated #1 in Mexia. Super friendly staff, fast service, and outstanding BBQ. The brisket on my sandwich was melt-in-your-mouth tender with a nice smokey flavor, served on a toasted bun with just a taste of sauce and the ranch beans were great, with just a little peppery kick....

To much fat not trimmed from chopped beef sandwich. Not impressed.. Okay atmosphere feels like a BBQ joint.. Staff is friendly... Just doesn't quite hit my taste buds right like WRIGHTS..

Great BBQ. Visited on a Saturday and were able to sample the pork ribs -delicious! I had the stuffed potatoe and it was soooo good. Overall a great experience but watch out for the young waitress, she has an attitude. That won't stop us from going back.

I love this place, off the beaten path not far from Fort Parker, I have had Kirby's BBQ many times and as a native Texan like to think I know my BBQ. I have tried the brisket, turkey breast, all sides I usually prefer cobbler to pie but there the pie is great too! He and his staff are always... More

I have been eating at Kirby’s BBQ near Mexia, TX routinely for the past 20 years or so. And living some 100 miles away near Dallas (where we have some pretty good Q), that’s saying something. I am going to avoid over-the-top claims as “the best BBQ in Texas,” but when you see a restaurant successfully specialize in only one... More

It has been a while (too long, actually) since I last ate at Kirby's, but the memories still linger like the aroma from its smokers. Kirby's is not a joint, or a diner, or a restaurant, it's a place, a destination, a mecca for true Texas BBQ. The food is perfectly cooked, which is the only thing that matters when... More
