I have ate there a couple of times and Bbq is ok but not the best I have ever had. To tell the truth there is not a great bbq place in Midland. You have to go to Llano to Coopers if you want really...More

They have the big wood fired smoker outside cooking fresh food. Bbq is authentic and not fast food. Bbq ribs are my favorite.

This is authentic BBQ, not fast food. You can smell the wood burning BBQ pits and smokers cooking. Everything I’ve sampled so far is good. It gets real busy at peak hours so plan around normal meal times to avoid long waits.

Ate here today and it was amazing. Look at the pics. You select your meat right off the grill. Tasted amazing as well. Helpful host and fun place. Highly recommended!

One of my favourite places for BBQ when I’m in Texas. The sides are tasty, with smoky beans and crisp onions and peppers. Good coleslaw and fair potato salad. Their brisket is tender and very tasty; the ribs are good, and the mixed sausages are...More

KD’s is a fun place to go for the atmosphere, but the food quality does not match. In an ideal wood it would match the quality of Cooper’s, but it falls WAY short. True Texas BBQ eaten at H-E-B when it is hot and fresh...More

The food, atmosphere and service are great. I especially like the bbq brisket and sausage at KD's. KD's is my favorite bbq place in West Texas. I like the place so much, I purchased their shirt.

Too pricey. Most people think their food is great. It is not. Mediocre at best. Price is excessive. Last trip for me.

Business group, someone said "Lunch?", several others said "KD's" It is located Southeast of Midland, just off of I-20 (North side) on highway 158. Can be really crowded on a Friday, happened to get lucky this time and went right in. Good assortment of meats....More
