Good BBQ!

My family and I have eaten here many times and love it. The food has always been great and have received super service each time. The portions are large and I would recommend this restaurant to anyone!

The wife and I go to Soulman's in Van often. Actually, we also use to go to the one in Garland when we lived in Mesquite. The one here in Van is top notch. They have the best BBQ and they are truly "not stingy with their meat". if you live in the area and haven't tried them or if... More

We were on a road trip and just saw the sign it was lunchtime and we pulled in. I'm glad we did. The selection is huge. We got the chopped brisket sandwiches with some delicious sides. It was so good I will go back.

This is one of my favorite stops when on the road. First time stopping was because there was plenty of truck parking. Now I'm hooked. Great BBQ, great sides, fair prices and it's a quick hit and run. It's not the Ritz, mind you, just good food, fast and cheap. I highly recommend checking it out. I'll be there in... More

The food was average. The staff at the counter was very unprofessional, bickering back and forth, and slow. There were no clean tables in the place. Every one of them had food/trays on them. A/C ducts were dripping water on the tables and on the salad bar area. Overall not a good experience.

Tried this as a quick stop for dinner while we traveled, conveniently located right off the highway. It was good BBQ and ribs!

Visited the location in Van. Double -barrel loaded potato with pulled pork was good, as was the sliced brisket sandwich with fries. Cute "Texas" theme inside, clean restaurant. Highly recommend the sweet tea! Will be back!

We stopped here on a Sunday afternoon about 3:00. Obviously not the lunch hour but we were in the area to drop off kids at a summer camp and had not had lunch so decided to give it a try. The restaurant was more that half full of patrons which I thought was a good sign especially in the middle... More

We really did have soul food. There are lots of choices for side dishes. The cooked cabbage and fried okra were yummy. In our group we had ham, turkey, ribs, and brisket and they were all good.
