“Best BBQ in town”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2012

Off the beaten track just outside downtown Wichita Falls. Fantastic BBQ! Lots of sides, very reasonable prices, and even more generous portions.

“Now this is Texas BBQ!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2012

Everybody seems to have their own idea of what good BBQ is. To me, the Branding Iron is the gold standard. This is as unpretentious a place that you'll ever see.They're not too worried about ambience. After selecting your meat you serve yourself to the sides. They offer brisket, ham, sausage, pork shoulder, and even bologna. They are open for dinner only on Friday and Saturday.

“A True Landmark!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2012

When in Wichita, this is the place to dine. Its not only a place to eat, but an event. The Branding Iron has its own decor...kind of like an old cowboy diner, if there is such a thing. Dark with old western pictures and memorabilia all over the walls. Buckets of peanuts on the tables. The food is GREAT!! Huge portions and the side items are varied and tasty. Where else can you get a half a smoked chicken with two sides for 5 bucks?? Fast cafeteria type service!
