Worthy of the top 50 list. Excellent bark on the brisket. The ribs were the best. Looking forward to when they start packing their own sausage (the current offering is only average). Brisket was fork tender and well seasoned, no sauce required. The regular sauce was a bit sweet for my taste. Quality hickory smoked meats. Clean restaurant and fast... More

Yes, this is in a strip mall. No, you won't get linen napkins or tablecloths. If you are looking for good food, great service, and prefer that over atmosphere this is the place for you. You walk in and order and the server was very obliging to offer a taste or two and provide some suggestions. My husband and I... More

Good BBQ, located in a strip mall near the Main Street area, which actually is helpful in Grapevine because it makes parking easier. The beef ribs and BBQ sausage were both terrific, as was the pecan cobbler (basically pecan pie without the crust). Even the homemade rolls were great. I definitely would stop in here again.

Bartleys catered an event for my company. The food was very good so I decided to give the restaurant a try. The restaurant outdid itself. Fantastic ribs. Contest quality. Brisket flat was so tender melt in your mouth even when cut pencil think. Great assortment of sides. I did the baked beans and squash medley. Very tasty. Tucked away in... More

Hard to choose just one favorite plate of barbecue at Bartleys, since its all that good! This unassuming strip-shopping-center spot next to a washateria is Texas barbecue that many aspire to but most fall short. Bartleys is a Grapevine institution, not an upstart, and they've recently added some new tables and decor that ups their Western cool factor. We love... More

Great food, I got the all you can eat so I sampled everything, friendly service, and great price. I tried about 4 different places on my trip, and by far this place was the best. The food had great flavor and all the meat was really tender. I recommend anyone in the area looking for great BBQ, to try this... More

Yes, the food is that good. Lean brisket AND 'not lean' brisket, smoked chicken, turkey, sausage with different spice levels! But when it's gone for the day, it's mostly gone... We arrived for dinner based on reviews. It's tucked away in a typical strip center. Decor nothing special. BUT here the bbq is the star. Sides (okra, beans, corn, slaw,... More
