This restaurant exceeded all of my expectations. All of the staff was super friendly and helpful. Great suggestions on the pulled pork and macaroni and cheese. It felt like walking into a small town restaurant where everyone knows each other. Even though it only took...More

Stopped into this place, finally, after meaning to do so for a long time. It's a nice atmosphere, Texas-style, so we were glad to see the Texas-style sliced brisket to match. Good, thick slices that you can get "wet" or lean, which means they understand...More

My favorite is the pork sandwich but the carrot soufflé is to die for. They have catered one of our parties and there was not a single person in the party who didn't like the food. I recommend this place for dine-in, take out or...More

I have been to Praise the Lard several times. I find the service adequate; you order, take a seat and wait for your food to be brought to your table. The catchy fun is the table markers are pro wrestler names instead of numbers. The...More
