We had the 3 meat plate, and based on Texas portions, thought it would feed the 3 of us. They gave small portions of the 3 meats. The meat was awesome and very smoky. Not as good as some Austin BBQ spots but good nonetheless. We had delicious fries and pinto beans as sides. Some buttery hot rolls came out... More

Hate to do this but I was sick before I got home. Suspect the lettuce in my otherwise good salad with brisket had not been washed. My husband and son had brisket and neither got sick.

After reading other reviews we wanted to see if brisket lived up to it's reputation. It did not disappoint at all. Great smoked flavor without the bitterness from over smoking, very well seasoned and needed no sauce to cover it up. For sides we both had fried okra and pinto beans. Everything is well seasoned. Portion wise it was average... More

Best BBQ in Brown County, hands down! Clean, owner and staff that enjoy cooking fresh dishes. You can be surprised with good comfort foods like chili, salads, Frito Pies, more and more.

I have reviewed Sticks before, and promised that I would visit again and write a review. Well, we tried it again, and again we were very disappointed. The 2 ribs were mostly 1 inch of fat and little meat and no taste. It appeared that they had been boiled and then put in the smoker for a very short time.... More

A friend and I eat here at lunch almost every Thursday and the food is always good. They have some creative BBQ sandwiches (a Rueban made with brisket, BBQ poorboys, etc.) and good plate lunches. My personal favorite is the simple pulled pork sandwich with bread, sauce and meat. Don't add any extras to complicate good BBQ. Craig and his... More

The BBQ here is, for the most part, very good. But, we have found that if you arrive at times other than 11:30-1:00 for lunch or 4:30-5:30 for Dinner, the BBQ is not good at all. So, be cerain to arrive at normal and usual lunch and dinner times, to assure that the BBQ is fresh. Apparently, they run out... More

The portions certainly satisfy, the owners are friendly and personable, they make their own cake, cookies, brownies, etc. Oh - and the meat tastes good too.
