“Good meat side not so much”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2012 via mobile

Ok, so I tried this place son after they opened and found the brisket and pork to be very good. The thing I think they need to work on are the sides. You would get better potato salad at the grocery store. It was served cafeteria style which was not to nice. The decor is very nice, reminds me of A good Texas BBQ atmosphere. Hope they improve on the sides and do well. I will need to visit again and see. Thanks

“The cuts of meat were very fatty and not very flavorful.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2012

The atmosphere was down home, picnic-style. No frills. The staff was friendly and the portions were decent. The BBQ just didn't cut it, to me. It was bland and very fatty, and lacked flavor. The meat should have some kind of distinct, memorable, flavor even without sauce. This didn't.

“Local and authentic”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2012

This is a great place for good food and group events. Check out Mr. K's web site for the history of the owner. These are Mr. K's family recipes and there are great historical photos on every wall. The service is friendly and casual. This is a comfortable setting with large areas for big groups to get together or just a cozy lunch or dinner in a corner. Many choices for the meat preparations and a condiment bar to add you favorite toppings and combinations. My favorite is the grilled corn on the cob.

“Very Good BBQ”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2012

My wife and I like Mr. K's BBQ very much and get take out dinners every two weeks. My wife is a little bit of a health nut and therefore generally doesn't like BBQ places. However, she enjoys their lean brisket (as contrasted to their other brisket which is fattier) quite a bit. I enjoy the lean brisket also, along with their ribs and/or quarter chicken on a 2 meat combo. They do serve hot BBQ sauce on the meats if you ask at the time of serving. The sides are very good (each meal comes with two), we both get a green garden salad and I enjoy the mac and cheese while my wife enjoys the green beans. The prices are very reasonable for what you get. The ambiance for eating there is a little rustic, as it is just picnic tables.

“Would be much better if the BBQ sauce was served warm!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 16, 2012

We thought it was pretty good, but were disappointed to find the BBQ sauce was just sitting out on the tables in a squirt bottle. For such a huge deal the signs in the restaurant make about "good BBQ", I guess we just assumed the sauce would be warm and served WITH our meal. Mac and cheese was delicious!
