No atmosphere at all here if that's what you are looking for. But in terms of bbq, it is very good. You won't be disappointed

“Not a favorite.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2013

If you are looking for authentic Texan BBQ, this is not the place. It was ok, but just average. It tasted like a bottled BBQ sauce poured on just before being served.

“Iconic Rib Place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2013

The Texan has been in Algonquin for a long time. It's slow roasted BBQ is without equal in the Northwest suburbs. While there is a plethora of chain bbq places around, the Texan, locally owned,actually follows the model of the old time places. The meat is smoked 6-8 hours and literally falls off the bone. The various heat levels of the sauces are fantastic. This is real heat, the kind that doesn't burn the tounge, but makes you sweat. From the ribs, to the chicken, to the pulled pork sandwiches, the food is worth traveling for.
The location is unassuming, an old house on US31, just a few blocks north of the main intersection in Algonquin, near the waterfront park. Be warned, parking can be a problem, as it is limited. They also offer takeout and catering.

“Favorite BBQ in barrington hills”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 26, 2012 via mobile

We always stop here and are never disappointed. This is some of the best BBQ I have ever had. Also, try the turkey. Great place, good for takeout, or eat in. A little hard to find since off the Main Street but well worth the effort.

“Amazing place!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2012

I have been all over the country and have had BBQ in many places. The Texan is by far the best I've ever had! It's a small rustic place but that just adds to the whole experience. Love this place! We've catered from here too and have introduced alot of people to this restaurant.
