Stopped in for a late lunch on our way back to TX. They didn't have sliced brisket or a sliced sandwich which I found unusual. And you can't get a half rack of ribs either. I got the chopped sandwich and fries and the hubby...More

Tried out Backyard BBQ on the recommendation of a local. Not the cheapest, but you do get a large portion for your money. They piled on the pulled pork on my sandwich plate and served me up a huge side of potato salad. The most...More

I only went in for dessert. The pie was so good!!! Got a huge piece of strawberry pie. Yumm! It was so tall. The crust and topping were delicious. Next time I visit, this will be one of my first stops.

We absolutely loved this place. We’ve visited a lot of BBQ places over the years but my husband and I agree this is one of the best!!! Ribs were so tender and be sure to try the beans. They are so different but fabulous!!

The crowd tells the story. We stopped in for dinner on a work trip. There was a good number of people here which is a good sign. I went with the loaded baked potato with beans. My coworkers shared the ribs. Holy cow was this...More

Here's the deal. The food tastes great. The service is the worst ever. I've Eaten here about a couple times a month for years, with great results. The last 3 times I've ordered nearly identical items as those I am with. Normally we are all...More
