Great food!

Great food! Disregard other reviews regarding bad service, we are happy to report a positive experience. Excellent food, generous portions. It's not the Ritz, so don't expect white linen tablecloths and folded napkins, but you'll leave with your belly full of good food.

We took a chance at this restaurant when passing through San Angelo on our way to Amarillo. Although the pulled pork was sold out for the day, we ordered the brisket sandwich. The bun was toasted with a slight crunch and the brisket was moist and delicious. The sandwich was too large for me to eat, but I couldn't stop... More

My family and I were going back home after a week of the Balloon Festival in Albuquerque and a visit to Santa Fe. We also took in some gambling--- but stopping at RJ's BBQ for lunch was a gamble that definitely paid big time. Our brisket sandwiches were excellent and the peach cobbler was a winner. I spoke to the... More

No bar-b-q in the world is worth how I was treated today. Can't review on my order because I never received my order. Wait, I take that back. I never even placed my order before I was told not to come on Fridays because they are too busy to make 6 simple sandwiches to go. Never again.

We stopped in after reading the good reviews on Tripadvisor. We ordered the pulled pork,but were informed they had sold out. We inquired about a barbeque chicken sandwich. We both wanted white meat, but were told one of us would have to order dark meat, as they would have to cut the chicken to fulfill our order. After some discussion,... More

We stopped at RJ's on April 11, 2013 as we drove through San Angelo on our latest road trip to south central Texas to visit friends & family and were AMAZED! We both had the BBQ brisket (which I reluctantly ordered after being told all the chicken had sold out over lunch) and it was hands down the best brisket... More

The food was darn good, finger licking good, and the amount was huge. Well worth the cost. You will not be disappointed.
