“Reviews didn't fail me - this is one amazing BBQ joint. Better than anything I've had in DFW area.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2013 via mobile

Saw the #1 status among area eateries so we planned a stop while driving through. Excellent pulled pork -- an honor I rarely hand out in Texas. Pork ribs were tender and meaty, too, but if you have a preference for other pig parts or good old beef brisket you can't go wrong here. Great baked beans but you can get green or pinto if you prefer as well as other sides. Tempted by the homemade pie but just too full to enjoy. Place just smells right. The owner's son and partner really cares about his customers.

“About The Best BBQ Ever”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 12, 2013

Wonderful food, bountiful servings, good sides (plus plenty of sliced raw onions). You'll have to find one of those open pit BBQ places northwest of Austin, in the Hill Country, to find BBQ that can complete. The bad news is -- Stacy's has limited business hours. The good news is -- it's darn well worth altering your schedule to dine here! While the brisket can be a little dry sometimes, everything else is spot-on. The smoked turkey is unexpected, but it's sliced thin, is soft on the tongue, with just the right amount of BBQ flavor. They mix their own BBQ sauces, and there is one (name escapes me) that is a good mix of sweet and tart. The dining room is nothing special, but it provides direct access to the self-serve soda machine. All in all, a great find in a small east Texas town that otherwise is short on good restaurants.

“Old Fashioned BBQ”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2012

The staff are so friendly and very nice. Love the smell from the parking lot. Family owned and operated. The food is great and the wait is short. I love the order and go concept. The dining area is so neat. I like to eat at a different spot everytime because there is always something new to read that I didn't see before.

“Hidden Gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2012

While staying here for work, I found this place to be one of the highlights of my trip. The owner is a funny witty guy who has excellent bbq. The turkey, rib, ham, and sausage were all great. The peach cobbler was very good to my surprise. I guess that's why some people chose it as one of their sides. If I every come back to Jacksonville...I will definitely return to Stacy's.
