Excellent brisket & spicy sausage. Chicken was another good choice. Different flavored BBQ sauces make it interesting. A little out of the way but worth looking for.

Best BBQ brisket ever. The BBQ chicken was great. Not that easy to find. Small and basic. But once inside...... Basic BBQ but great!!!!!!

Your basic "hole in the wall" BBQ joint; which are truly the BEST. Petty's is no exception. Stopped in for lunch while in town on business - chosen at random - turned out to be a great choice. All the menu choices one would want in a BBQ restaurant. Everyone in the group was well fed and well satisfied.

This is some of the best brisket I've had and have enjoyed everything else I've tried here. My only recommendation would be to up the quality of the sausage, but other than this, come by and get some great Texas BBQ.

BBQ was well smoked - - lots of spice in the beans and cabbage. The pulled pork was more chopped than pulled but was moist .. the ribs were tender and meaty

Get out the gps and plug in the address, when ya get there be prepared for a real treat! Petty's does it up right and at a great price. My wife and I visit as often as possible. If you're in the area and you want the best barbecue around stop in and enjoy.

I like the smoke flavor they have for their meats. I stop here every time I go visit my brother here. I really like the pulled pork. I like their BBQ sauces. Atmosphere is good as well.

Visited Petty's BBQ with wife and two children. Large smoker out front, non-descript strip mall. Walk in, menu on the wall. Staff friendly and efficient. I had the chicken/pulled pork platter, as did my wife. Kids had the chicken sandwich and macaroni and cheese. Chicken was moist and tender, bbq pulled pork was smokey and delicious. Sides were excellent -... More

Amazingly, everything I have ever ordered from here is delicious! In addition to the great selection of meats, the greens and beans are well-seasoned, offer that come-back-again goodness when it comes to service.

I may have dropped in on a slow day. The staff was nice but it was not the best best brisket I have had. The food was fresh but the brisket was a little dry. I had read good things but to give the benefit of the doubt it could have been an off day. It was not bad just... More
