My husband, daughter, son-in-law, grandson and myself had lunch here 10/15/2016. It's one of those places off the beaten path where you expect the locals to frequent. We found a booth and sat down and our waitress immediately took our drink and food order. Our food was delivered quickly and every thing was hot and fresh. My husband and I... More

Authentic Texas BBQ - a small "hole in the wall" with melt in your mouth brisket to die for. Family-friendly, very comfortable.

On a family trip to San Angelo I had to try some Texas BBQ! All te locals recommended the Packsaddle Bar-B-Que. The restaurant , a small little place, outside of San Angelo. The parking lot was full at lunch time It looked like an older family dinner. The walls are covered in toy race cars and pictures. The staff were... More

We often choose take out from Pack Saddle because it's good food & it's located close to our home. We called in our usual order & my husband went to pick it up. When he returned, we opened up our dinners to find a pretty good reduction in the portion sizes. We usually get the smaller 2 meat dinner meals.... More

My heart is broken. I raised my kids at this place. I have written great reviews for it. The recently new owners have let it fall a part it a short time. It is an old place but was never dirty before like now. The fried catfish was nasty and the bbq sandwich was mushy.. Its close to lake so... More

Not only is it so close to the entrance for a convenient bite to eat by the lake but it is super delicious. The big BBQ brisket sandwich is always incredibly delicious. Highly recommend hitting this place up...but if you can't go in then call in an order. Usually only takes them 10 minutes.

Just recently moved to San Angelo from Ohio and have been looking for great bbq joints to replace the ones we had back in Ohio. Packsaddles didn't do it for us. The turkey was good but the chopped brisket was not up to par for us. Don't think we are going to find any good bbq here like there was... More

The fried catfish was excellent, but I would have liked some tartar sause. The expertly smoked brisket came came with 2 sides, I was delighted that they had an adequate salad bar. The serving size is quite hearty.

I had time for lunch before catching my flight. I wanted brisket and preferred to eat somewhere the locals eat, no chains or strip malls. I wasn't disappointed, the place was 95% filled at 11:00 and it was a wide range of demographics. I had brisket, beans & coleslaw and left full and happy.

Being west Texas, was thinking it would be a bit different. I guess we need to move over a bit more east of here. Brisket was very dry, fries were so so. Services was very good
