Locals from fast growing Forney Texas know if you wait too long in the day — some of your fave Texas BBQ may be sold out for the day. I understand why — the Brisket is amazing — chopped or sliced. The sides are tasty...and fresh. The place ain’t fancy — but they make up for it with authentic friendly service. Located a couple of blocks from the historic downtown area in a small strip store center with gravel parking lot. More parking is available in the rear of the building. Limited seating inside — although I reckon most orders are to go. We will be back!More

Pulled pork, brisket & ribs some of the best I’ve ever had. Baked beans WERE the best I’ve ever had in my life. I do frequent many BBQ places and I’m telling you these are great. The Mac n cheese rank right up there as...the best also. I have to admit when I ran across this place in an article (it was ranked 4 out of a list of 20) I thought in Forney ... really? I live about an hour away. I strolled over there yesterday to check it out. I’ll be going back!More

Stopped in to refuel after a local race event, and this BBQ did not disappoint! The pork belly burnt ends were crisp, yet tender. The regular sausage had an excellent flavor. The turkey was a bit dry, but just how I like it! The brisket...had a peppery smoke flavor, and a nice line of fat. The service was spot on with plenty of comedic jokes with the regulars. The okra could have been a little more crunchy. They offer free beer (limit 2) on Saturdays too!More

Amazing bbq and sides! Get there early because they can run out of the favorites, sometimes! The brisket is definitely my favorite!!!

I love their brisket and chicken bombs. Mike and Cindy are the best and everything is delicious. Don't forget dessert. Great banana pudding!

We took a detour today off our main route through East Texas to try out some Texas BBQ Brisket we’d heard about. Glad we did. Not fancy. Hole in the wall. Pre-pay when you order at the small counter window inside. They call out out...your name when the food is ready. Place is only open for lunch (sit down or take out) and they were already sold out of Ribs by 12.15. The Brisket was tender and tasty —cut in thick slabs. Lots of sides to choose from — I picked the baked beans and potato salad — all three were great. A little pricy for lunch time — but you’re essentially getting dinner size portions.More

I'm working my way through the best of the best in Texas BBQ Joints. I've been here twice and it is, based on my tastings of BBQ, 2nd on my list of the best brisket. Their brisket has a great, smoky, flavor and was really...juicy! The turkey was also great. I had one of their potatoes and I would have a liked a little more meat on my potato, but for the price, I wasn't unhappy with it. I did try the pecan pie and it was also very good. They serve on a buttery, toasted bun and that's a BBQ joint fave for me, so bonus points for that!! It's a small place, and on my last visit there was a line, but the service was friendly and the line moved quickly. They are local joint for me, so I'll continue to go when I have a chance. You can't swing a cat, in Texas, without hitting a BBQ joint, but they are not all created equally, and 4-T's does stand out, so I would definitely recommend giving them a try.More

Food was underwhelming. Tables sticky and dirty. The employees were cold and uninviting. When telling the owner that the customer service was bad, he became very defensive and childish. It’s too bad, I would have tried them again if it wasn’t for his initial response....If you look below at another review, he accuses the person of not visiting them in a long time and tries to call the person a liar in a roundabout fashion. Very unprofessional.More

Consistently good Que for 20 years. Great owners as well. Started out as many a home base business. Now a successful restaurant!
