Good barbecue lunch

We had a business lunch here and everyone enjoyed there food. A fairly standard Texas barbecue joint that offers sandwiches and plates with sides. I got the sliced brisket with two sides for $10. A good portion of perfectly good beef and good sides too. Bonus that they cut the meat right in front... read more

A friend took me here back in the mid 80s and I was immediately hooked. It's one of those places that's Texas proud and Texas fine offering savory cuts of fine barbecue beef, chicken, turkey and all the accessories. They open at noon and they DON'T care if 500 people are waiting, they'll open when they open and you'd better... More

When I'm in town I head here to get smoky BBQ. I get the pork shoulder, sausage and ribs. They are very consistent with quality however I did get some end rib pieces a few times that were hard and dry. They did replace them when I asked. The pork shoulder is always moist and tender. Many sides to choose... More

Local barbecue place with great menu selection. Ribs are amazing. Make sure you grab plenty of napkins.

It was pretty good BBQ. I have had better, but it's still pretty good. The price was affordable, and it has the small town feel.

We eat here when we are in Wichita Falls and catch them at lunch. Check their hours before visiting but try to make it here if you love barbecue. This is the best in Wichita Falls and I highly recommend it.

It doesn't get more authentic than this! This is not by any means a fancy place, but it genuinely has some of the best BBQ in Texas. Get there early because when it opens at 11:00, there is already a line out the door...and bring CASH because they don't take cards. Everything is served cafeteria style...walk in, get your tray,...

See before and after photos. Self explanatory. Just couldn't eat any more. Delicious! Fried okra, pea salad, Texas toast, smoked turkey and my favorite here, pork shoulder. Great barbecue sauce too!

If you want some local color and delicious food, go to Branding Iron. The brisket and other barbecued meats are the best. They do not accept credit cards and an ATM machine is located at the restaurant if you didn't bring cash. Fun to see the photos of the massive tornado that came through Wichita Falls in 1979.

Wow! This was real treat. Would have never gone looking for a place to eat in this part of town or stepped foot in this place if I had not been told about it. When it comes to BBQ, this is the real deal! A classic, "chop/slice it in front of you after you order" kind of place. Line goes... More
