If you are looking for a fancy spot, this is not it. If you are looking for great tasting BBQ, stop here. It was excellent. I had ribs and my son had sausage. Both our meals were delivered quickly and the food was very tasty and prepared perfectly. I will definitely make a point to stop here if I am... More

I had a taste for BBQ and this was the perfect spot. We went with friends on a Saturday night - and didn't have to wait for a table. My husband had the ribs - full slab - so much food and not expensive!! Close to the riverwalk - which was a nice after dinner walk.

The ONLY authentic BBQ we have had in the area. Long time owned and operated family business. GREAT BBQ atmosphere, multiple choices of meats, sauces from Mild to Ouch! If you havent yet...TRY IT! You'll be glad you did.

We drive about 45 minutes to go to the Texan, at least once a month. Love their brisket sandwiches and their baby back ribs. The curly fries are addictive. The people working here are friendly and helpful. Although the place is in an old and rustic looking house, it's always clean inside and welcoming. You order at the counter and... More

In a very rustic setting (an older brown house that needs some sprucing up) you place your order at the small counter underneath a large menu in the front room. The cashier is helpful; this was our first time and she answered questions/gave us information cheerfully. Your food is delivered to your table---on a busy night, a possible problem finding... More

Order at the register and food is delivered to your table. Very rustic and shows age. Food is ok and nothing to honestly recommend. Cost is not cheap but then again you pay more for what you get.

I have not been to the Texan for 15 years and decided to give it a try. We live with in walking distance and this place has a decent crowd most nights. The Brisket was tender a had a great smoke flavor that did not over whelm the meat. The sides were decent as well. My wife had the rib... More

I stopped in for lunch a few days ago after a lengthy absence from the Texan and I'm glad I did. I had the brisket sandwich which was really good. My friend had the tacos and really enjoyed them as well. My only disappointment was the fried okra. I always order that when I stop here but this time they... More
