Funky and fun!

I love Branding Iron! Although pretty old, it has a great atmosphere with wooden tables and booths, western decor and the smell is fantastic. There are cups of peanuts on every table that you can shell and eat and throw the shells on the floor. The meats are hand cut right in front of you and you... read more

Reminds me of an old saloon ; wooden tables and concrete floor is pretty neat. The BBQ is great! The price is right. $11.00 for a full plate and a drink. I would give it a 5 but it's cash only and I had to go to the ATM.

Food is very good but get it to-go. The place lacks ambience but some people may find that OK. It looked pretty ragged to me.

Have eaten several times at the Iron and always gotten quality barbeque at a decent price. The atmosphere of the Iron is olden with wood floors and booths after you go through the serving line. We enjoyed our food and was able to carry on a conversation while eating. I would recommend the Iron for Barbeque.

Best BBQ in Wichita Falls. Has been at this location for years. Great smoked meats and the sides are self serve. If you leave here hungry it is your own fault!

We were driving around Wichita Falls trying to find some good Texas barbecue and we came upon this nondescript place at the corner of Kell Blvd. and Scott Ave. There were but one or two cars outside but we were hungry and stopped. This was one of our better decisions. I ordered the large Rib Combo plate while my spouse... More

5 of us ate there for lunch. I ordered the ribs and sausage plate. Sausage was pretty good. The ribs were way over cooked. Parts of the ribs were dried out they were so over cooked. Beside the ribs everything else was good.

This is the best bar-b-q in Wichita Falls. The only reason I can't give more than 4 stars is it's not open enough!!! Any item on the menu is going to be delicious.

This is one of the BEST places in TEXAS to eat! When I crave Bar-B-Q....it's ALWAYS satisfied with Branding Iron....and ONLY Branding Iron!!!! The cafeteria-type line moves fast and allows you to see EXACTLY what you're getting...and serve yourself as generous portions as you can enjoy for that meal!!!! And...the Price is RIGHT!!!!!! Juicy, tender meat....no matter which you choose!!!!... More
