“Delicious”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2013

Enjoyed a heaping sliced beef brisket sandwich and fries at lunch. Very tasty with large portions. If you get a sandwich by itself -- split an order of fries as there will be plenty. You can order meat by the pound for take out as well. My first visit as I was only in town on business and was recommended by someone. The place was hopping at lunch, which I take as a good sign the food is worth it.

“Nothing to write home about”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2013

Good coleslaw, good barbecued ranch beans; pulled pork was so so, room size about 50 X 50 with no dividers. 3 or 4 booths on each side wall and 6 tables in the middle of the floor, walls covered with unattractive stuff. Not a particularly pretty place, but as a fast food joint it's ok. Nothing I would rush back to.

“Decent but not particularly great barbeque with mediocre sauces and poor value side dishes.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2013 via mobile

First of all, don't expect great pork barbeque when their are lots of Texas logos. Texans don't understand that pork barbeque should be a redundant term! That being said, the pork is ok, but (not surprisingly) the brisket is better. The wing "drumsticks" were about the same size as the actual drumsticks on the chicken - seriously?!? The side dishes were marginally larger than the little cups that coleslaw is generally served in regular barbeque joints - seriously - a very poor value! The food was better than our first visit right after opening, but service, while pleasant, was still slow, and the food, while decent, was not outstanding (but better than Red, Hot, & Blue and Famous Dave's) but provided a pricey "fix" when we couldn't travel out of town for the real thing!

“Worst BBQ”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2013 via mobile

Probably the worst $15 I have ever spent on BBQ ever. Ordered 2 meats combo at the Norbeck branch - 1/2 rack ribs and sausage. The ribs had hardly any meat. The meat was dry and was probably cooked yesterday. The sausage was soft - probably again carried over from yesterday - zero snap. I left the corn bread aside with one bite after the soft bread felt uncooked.
Last time to Urban BBQ for me, my family, and possibly my friends.

“Yummy!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

We are a barbeque loving family and this place was great - reasonable prices, good selection, fairly quick service. Order at the counter and the food is brought to your table. The brisket was wonderful, served with choice of sides and cornbread. Lots of decor on the walls and the flags of each branch of service hanging inside. When I couldn't decide what to eat, a regular patron behind me in line told me anything I ordered would be good - he was right!
