The ribs were tender and spicy. I also had some Brisket and loved it. The brisket had a nice "smoke ring" but it was still tender and juicy. The Chicken and Turkey had good flavor. KD's offers four sauces; their "original" sauce was my favorite,...but if you like Sweet, Hot, or Vinegar, they are available. The sides were good, but the meats and the decades old atmosphere are the best things about KD's.More

Very good food. Excellent service. Realize the reviews you see saying it's to expensive are from the McDonald's set. Anything over 11 bucks person triggers their feelers! Good food about 20 bucks per person for dinner with a beer and cobbler! Plus three meats.

Decent BBQ. Nothing great. I got 4 ribs and piece of brisket, potato salad and a coke and it was $29. It seemed a bit expensive

The prices here are outrageous! I barely got any bbq brisket and 2 ribs. $20.00. Really! My husband had more meat than I did and his was only $5 more. The potato salad was absolutely gross and the coleslaw was alright. But I can go...to soulmans and get more food for cheaper. If we do ever stop here again I am just getting ribs. And then they didn’t even have any pulled pork or and pit potatoes. Husband said the cherry cobbler was gross. $68 for sub par food is not worth it . Will only be back if we are desperate for something to eat.More

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...good Bbq.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!

When you walk in you get to choose a whole range of BBQ meats from beef to turkey, bbq ribs, brisket, and plentybif roasts, the atmosphere is good almost reminded me of a mess hall in the army. Great food and you pay by the...weight of meat you buy.More

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...a decent assortment of the sausages they have to offer. All in all a good stop for BBQ. It’s not the cheapest place around, but it’s reasonable to feed 4 people and the quality is there.More
