I travel 95% of the time for work,and 98% of my reviews are positive; but I wouldn't be honest if I let this go by. I was taken here for lunch and was disappointed. People said great things about it, and the staff was Wonderful, But Barbecue is NOT boiled Ribs with sauce thrown on top. Sorry, but it's just... More

The Texan Bar-B-Q is an older,(over 30 years!) established, well kept barbecue joint. If you want chrome and a burger, go to a Sonic. The Texan is a true, old style, family barbecue joint. It feels like home as soon as you enter and are greeted by the wonderful gal at the ordering counter. No pig on a stick to... More

Friendly staff and great food. Something different, everything has that wonderful smokey flavor. Lots of variety. I love that you can get small portions.

The restaurant is old and tired. The food is only OK. Was hoping to get that "hole in the wall with great food". Unfortunately it's just a hole in the wall.

The food is great. Just the smell walking into the place will make your mouth water. Its hard to pick just one smoked meat to eat, they are all so good.

A terrific place that lots of locals attend for lunches and dinners, Not a fancy place, more of a jeans and relaxed atmosphere where work clothes are the norm vs getting dressed up. It's a comfortable place and atmosphere, not very large dinning area vs other fancy restaurants but the decor fits the theme. Parking can be limited if its... More

I stopped in to have dinner, I was not greeted by the door nor did I see any signs about seating so I just picked my own table. I went to the back of the place but not down the stairs to a lower level. I sat 3 tables away from the salad bar. First time I seen a waitress... More

Recently ordered a LOT of take out for a birthday party. Staff was super nice and accommodating. RIbs were great - beef brisket, yummy. Pulled pork a little dry, beans nice, coleslaw average. Sauce - awesome! Chicken a little overdone. Anyway - with all that said I am sure if you eat in you will get great stuff like I... More
