Drive by the parking lot and you will see just how bad they are doing. Food is lousy. What a shame We were excited to have a hometown restaurant.

Our favorites at Riders are the brisket and sausage. The family pack is a good value. Our children love the creamed corn as a side. The bbq sauce here is very good.

We love Rider's BBQ. All the smoked meat is tender and has a true Texas BBQ flavor. They also have great breakfast and dinner plates. You won't go wrong with any of their choices. Very friendly service and reasonable prices.
