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

I ordered the pulled pork sandwich plate, service was quick and the sandwich was HUGE.. I used the sweet & spicy sauce and came away very impressed. Great sweet sandwich bread and the green beans were DELICIOUS. Sweet Tea was better than most I've had in Texas too.. I highly recommend Pettys BBQ

Will not go back! Poor service, overpriced and bad bar-b-q😖. Has lots of advertising but it doesn't back up the product! Go elsewhere and you will be ahead!

Tried this place on my second day in town and was immediately greeted upon entering, very friendly staff and good food. I ordered the pork with Mac n cheese and coleslaw and it was delish! The lemonade was also very good! I will definitely recommend

Went here with my family earlier today and it was great! I had their combo plate of ribs and pulled pork. Sides of Mac n cheese and green beans. FANTASTIC. The ribs were quite large and soft. The pulled pork was more of a chopped variety. Both smoked and seasoned well. The Mac n cheese was THICK and cheesy. The... More

Called for Saturday eve takeout, and he wrote the order down but waited until I got there to cut it so that it would be better. While one guy cut the other talked, and these boys are passionate about smoked meat. They passed a couple samples of things I had not ordered and made suggestions that were all solid, including...

Imagine being in a customer-friendly, no frills barbecue restaurant where the servers/cooks let you sample anything you'd like, before you order. Well, imagine no more. This is the place. Jerome, was super-accomidating. My wife and I ordered the ribs plate, and the brisket plate. Everything was cooked to perfection. Even the cornbread was moist. The green beans and cole slaw... More
