Neat locally themed place with good food, very tasty barbecue sauce, and the people who work there have great personalities that make you happy you are there! So glad we stopped on our way through!

What a fun family atmosphere with good food and great owners. They allow different youth groups to wait tables for the tip money to be used in fund raising. Help support Henry's as they support our kids. Thanks....

This place is good! They are locally owned and operated and they show pride in their town. The service is good and the food is hard to complain about.

Full menu of BBQ meats. Staff was energetic and friendly. Great value with a large selection of foods. Inside and Outside dinning areas and the service was fast. The Cobbler for dessert was a good treat.

En route from Carlsbed Caverns to Alamogordo, we stopped at Henry's, for some BBQ. The place doesn't disappoint, and it should be on any list for "Good Eats", when traveling near Roswell, Carlsbed or Alamogordo. Try the #1 Combo, which is a deliciously-priced $9.95. For this price one gets a half pound of meat. Best of all, the staff lets... More

Traveling through Artesia,NM, on our way to Carlsbad Caverns May 11, 2016 - stopped here for lunch. Best ever green chili brisket my wife and I ever had. No grease. Flavor is spectacular. Also had the beans and split the loaded baked potato. Be sure and try the home made vanilla ice cream. Very reasonable prices. Owner came out and... More

I can't say enough about how awesome the BBQ was here. I had the Monster Rib platter with greens and a three bean and sausage side. Incredible is the only way to describe it. Some friends convinced me to go to Henry's instead of another place I wanted to eat at, and I was like "BBQ, what's the big deal?".... More

This is my favorite place in town....but I also love BBQ. The turkey is great, ribs are great, brisket is lean but that's how I like it. The sauce is great with a variety of hot sauce near where the silverware is to spice things up if you like. It's not fancy like the Adobe Rose and they don't serve... More

This is a warm and inviting dine-in or take-out restaurant in Artesia that is sure to satisfy your palate if you're craving some southern style barbecue. The establishment isn't humongous but it's decent-sized that could fit probably 8 or 10 families of 4 easily. The staff is courteous and friendly as well. I decided on trying their pork ribs and...
