I ate at this place by accident and it turned out to be a wonderful mistake. The brisket wasn't overpowered with smokiness and was the most tender I had ever eaten. I had to buy more to eat later since I don't live there. If you travel to Sweetwater you must try this place!

It's been on the cover of Texas Monthly magazine twice as one of the best in TEXAS and rightly so. I've eaten alot of barbecue in my lifetime I say IT IS THE BEST period!

My family enjoys the great brisket and ribs at Big Boys BBQ. Did I mention their sandwich bread is amazing too? If you like BBQ, Big Boys is the best around!

At the end of a long road trip we needed a place to pull in for lunch and found this hidden off the road. Walking in it is not a kid friendly or cater to everyone place. The menu is simple and sweet, but all that you need in a bbq place. Both going with brisket sandwiches, we were served... More

The St Louis cut spares are good. Just the right amount of glaze with good flavor profiles. The sausage is decent, it taste like a custom made, but the seasoning is not what I prefer. The brisket is always consistent with flavor, texture and tenderness. It has less smoke flavor than a lot of places, but is good. I eat... More

We stopped in for lunch. We decided to split meals with our kids because the plates were a little on the pricey side. Was still 32.00 for 2 plates. Average food. Cute place on the inside though.

On a desolate stretch of road between Midland and Abilene there is a beacon for the hungry. Good food at great prices with an interesting decor almost an African hunting lodge with wicker chairs fit for a king. At rush hour, you may have to take it to go because of the limited floor space but its still well worth.... More
