The Longhorn Cattle Company BBQ is good, no doubt about that but it isn't the best end all be all there is to BBQ. In Cameron County Texas it is probably the best though. Best part of the meal here is the unlimited supply of beans that come with your order. I recommend the half chicken. If you want to... More

Food was great but no steaks Sunday or Monday. Huge stuffed potato a meal in itself. My BBQ was excellent. But I wanted steak. Good service, nice setting.

Open air dining. Friendly, attentive staff bearing homemade, scrumptious pinto soup with the drink order. Lean, tender, no frills brisket sandwich with sauce on the side was excellent, but a bit thinly portioned on the TX sized bun.

Have had the chicken, ribs, brisket, chopped brisket sandwich, and even their steaks and never disappointed. Last time we went was with a large group and several ordered the chicken which fell off...

Very good bbq. The pinto bean soup served as you're seated is great, and pitcher-sized drinks are just right. My ribs were cooked and seasoned well, but were a bit tough. Had to use a knife to get the bones apart, but still tasted great. My partners' brisket Got good reviews as well.

Being greeted with a cup of their signature bean soup continues to make one feel waited on immediately upon arrival. Wonderful beef sandwiches with delicious sauce. Always tender and tasty. Love the huge ice tea served the way the do in a picture.
