I've eaten at BBQ places all around Texas and KD's ranks right up there with the best of them. You pick out the types of meat as soon as you walk in by the pit. Be very careful as your eyes may overload your stomach. I had the triple sausage, chopped beef and a couple of ribs. If I had... More

It's like visiting grandma. All those lovely smoked meats and sides. Lots to chose from and a bit pricey. And the air conditioner isn't up to par. Just like grandma's house, it was hot. But the food and staff make up for that bit of discomfort.

They enjoy their meat here. A good place for smoked links, smoked meat and a nice selection of sauces made in house. A cafeteria lunch line setup for getting your food. The Iced tea was prepared and pre poured in Styrofoam cups, Beans heated and waiting in a crockpot along with various different sauces in other pots. The meat was... More

Best in Midland, TX BBQ and among the best in Texas right behind Lum's in Junction. Decent location, great atmosphere, and friendliest staff. The Freeman's are great people. Be careful! Your eyes can be bigger than your stomach! Served in a platter and sold by weight but beans are part of the deal. Highly recommended!

It's good but it's not fantastic, the brisket either awesome or saw dust. The sausage was okay at best. I did enjoy the ribs however

Can't go wrong here. Some of the best bbq you will find in these parts. Pick your meat from "cooler", get it weighed and get some sides. They have plenty of beans and cornbread. The sides are good and service is very friendly. Can't go wrong here..... Did I say that twice? Good for large or small groups.

They serve up their meat by weight and I'm tempted to load up every time I go. When you first enter, you grab a tray and butcher paper for your meat to be weighed. You then walk right up to a grill and tell them what meats you want. Mouth watering good stuff. Add your sides, including cobbler if you... More

This is just a roadside eatin' joint. Thay make a big deal about getting your meat off a pit, big deal it just keeps it warm. All the place is a Cooper's knockoff. the meat is ok not anything more than you can find a Dickey's across town. When they first opened they were great, but they got too big... More

Greatest barbeque you can find anywhere! Pick your meat from the pit, and help yourself to the bean bar! Great smoky flavor done to perfection!
