“Delicious BBQ - huge portions”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2013

Everything we ordered was fabulous. Our only complaint: there was so much food we didn't have room to try any of your homemade pie! We'll definitely be back for more!

“Good BBQ in good sized portions”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 15, 2013

After touring Fossil Rim park, we were hungry. Although there are some eating places in Glen Rose, this one caught our eye by the crowd in the parking lot and the smell of BBQ smoke.
We sat at the picnic tables inside and dined on chopped BBQ sandwiches with sides of potato salad, fresh onion rings, fried okra and more. The sandwiches were large and had a good helping of beef. The sides were served in what I would call a soup bowl. You get good portions!
Follow it up with the cobbler and ice cream and I can assure you will go away full, and thinking about your return trip. One draw back is that you will not have to tell anyone where you have been since you will smell of BBQ smoke for the rest of the day! Not a bad smell though!
Our group was from five years old, to seventeen years old, to us old timers in our 60's. It is unusual to find a restaurant where the entire clan of all ages gives it a "thumbs up".
We shall return!

“Close to being my new standard for 'cue”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2013 via mobile

If you are trying to decide between this place and any other eatery here, stop and read this:

Great BBQ smell walking across the parking lot and along the wood walk way. The squeak of the door gave way to a hustle and bustle in a large well lit room. There were huge platters of meat being hoisted across the joint, and a huge 8' x 10' Texas flag. This was a great start to what was fabulous BBQ in fossil country.

The price point was high even for a metroplex eatery. But hold on, that price equals 1 lb. of meat per plate! Our server was prompt. I ordered the brisket both point and flat sliced. At the table we also had other orders for ribs and brisket and a salad. The food came fast and the portion sizes were as expected if not more. My sons ribs were spare and nice and fat, wifes salad was in a massive bowl and super fresh.

And the brisket...oh the brisket. As a backyard brisketeer who chops his own mesquite and hickory chasing the perfect smoke and perfect 'cue, it was really something else. Thick juicy slices with the perfect bark and smoky amazing blow your mind good flavor. The sauce was tangy and sweet and just a bit of a kick. And NO liquid smoke, or black acrid death in a bottle, to mare such perfect sauce. The mark of true Texas 'cue.

I bought a t-shirt....you probably are not surprised.

“Best BBQ in Texas”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2012

Good tasty BBQ, plenty of food even for the hearty appetite! You need to ask for Judy's special chocolate pie! My personal favorite desert is the blackberry cobbler, with ice cream of course! Country causal and Glen Rose Friendly!

“Delish”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 29, 2012

Ok, I went to Texas looking for some real BBQ and I really found it at Hammonds. the inside has a great down home feeling. you sit at picnic tables and there's a bunch of memorobilia on the walls and around the restaurant. They gave you sooo much food and the price was very reasonable. The Brisket that melted in my mouth and the Pie. Oh, the Pie was amazing. It was all homemade and absolutely worth every penny.
