Very nice. Had the pulled pork with two sides, loaded baked potato done right, green beans good flavor. The pulled pork some of the best I have ever had. Will stop again when driving through.

Stopped in for lunch, food was great, the ribs were excellent. Only annoying part was music was too loud and the bartender sang to almost every song. Not a good place to try and converse.

This was a pretty good restaurant. Prices were average with most restaurants. We had a little variety of everything. Hubby enjoyed ribs and steak. The chili was absolutely amazing. We were seated quickly and served quickly.

The staff just didn't seem to care, as if we were a burden to them by coming into their restaurant. The waitress wasn't personable either, gave her the benefit of the doubt. Everyone has a bad day once in awhile. But, as our dinner was...More

Ordered the ribs again and they were absolutely terrific as always. The ribs had a nice thick, pink smoke ring and were so tender. The sauce they use is on point. Wifey had a ribeye steak and it was fantastic. The service could have been...More

Welcome to Texas Outlaw BBQ, judged America's GREATEST RIBS and Barbecue all over the nation. Our restaurant in Elizabethtown, KY is a reflection of our storied National Competition BBQ Cooking Team, which has been competing all over North America for decades winning over 300 national awards to date. Each year, we serve up well over a quarter-million pounds of BBQ from coast-to-coast. We started in Houston, TX and our restaurant has been operating in Elizabethtown, KY for the past 15 years. We use our same seasoning and slow-smoking style that has given us the award-winning flavors you are about to experience in our award-winning ribs, beef brisket, pulled pork, turkey and chicken. We are REAL TEXAS BBQ with the authentic pink smoke ring in the meat created by our spices and 6-13 hours smoking our meats low-and-slow. The smoke ring means you're getting real hickory wood smoked BBQ, not some white, mushy, boiled, broiled or baked meat. We didn't earn the title of GREATEST RIBS IN AMERICA or LEGENDS OF BBQ by serving anything but quality meat, spiced and slow-smoked in the best made smokers in the world. You can be assured you will never eat pre-cooked, frozen or microwaved meat at TEXAS OUTLAW BBQ. Our smokers operate 24 hours/day, around the clock and if we don't sell it tonight we throw it away tonight. So as my grandmother always said, "The proofs in the pudding". So sit back, relax and enjoy your meal. We hope to see you soon!
