What a nice surprise

I had lunch at the Branding Iron without knowing the place. Very good choice. Simple and very tasty. A very local BBQ place that I highly recommend. The combo plate is an excellent choice

Was thrown off a bit. It was like stepping back in time, you get a tray and walk down a line picking your items. The food is really fresh. I love beef and their sliced beef BBQ was tender and delicious. This is a can't miss placed to go.

Branding Iron is one of my all time favorite barbecue joints. Not much to look at, but the barbecue is great at a great price.

The ambiance when I entered this place is clearly proud to be a Texan. Everything gives it that wild west appearance, although it does look old. I thought it gave this place some charm The area of this restaurant matches the style of this restaurant. The area looks old, so it doesn't surprise me that people who visit here may... More

Texas seems to have a BBQ joint on every corner, which makes for some pretty tough competition but the Branding Iron has been besting its competition for years. The best in town. One cavet...bring money. They do not take plastic.

The food is good and reasonable. One of the most interesting aspects of a meal there is the atmosphere! The Branding Iron is one of the best BBQ places in the area, and their catering services are very good, too!!!!
