My family met up in Temple for a sort of mini reunion and my sister suggested Clem's BBQ. I hadn't heard of it and although I love BBQ I wasn't really in the mood to go to a BBQ place that night with a bunch of kids. I was happy to find out that Clem's is not simply a BBQ... More

One of the best tasting ribeyes I have had in a while .. .what a surprise from a BBQ place. The salad is crispy and fresh ... dressing is really good too. The ribeye and backed potato cannot be beat. It is always cooked just like I order it ... I like medium rare, hubby likes well (yuck). But they... More

We have eaten at this restaurant which is know for its BBQ, but now they have steaks and seafood after 4 pm. I have been several times and I have not received a bad steak yet. Cooked with the flavors sealed in. Prices are very reasonable.

Clems has been around quite sometime, but I feel Clems is over priced for their quality of BBQ(witch is not high) the hamburgers have gotten a lot better.

There is no other BBQ where I will eat a chopped sandwich. For many years I managed a BBQ in two locations. I'm a true BBQ snob. This is quality meat and portions.

I'm from up North in Fort Worth, so I can't speak to what this place used to be, but today's visit seemed like someone started cutting corners. I couldn't figure out what it was the BBQ sauce reminded me of and then it hit me - Campbell's Tomato Soup. I'd bet money it's straight out of a soup can. The... More

The food was good but a little too pricy especially for the little bit that we got. The service was great and the place was clean, but the decor was horrible! All the stuffed wildlife trophies which I frown upon very much. Some looked illegal! I was ready to walk out the door the moment I stepped into the dining... More

I used to go to clems all the time and it was always very good. But every since his kids took over the quality has gone down. I stopped going there a while back because of tthat. I decided to try it again tonight to see if it has gotten any better,but my opinion it is much worse. The sliced... More

This place was excellent! Food was amazing and our server Julie was awesome. We were passing through on our way home from South Padre and we are very glad we chose this excellent place. You need to try it if you are ever down this way.
