My family and I love coming to Cackle & Oink. The food is consistently delicious, and the customer service is always top notch. Especially Micah! He always calls me by name and goes out of his way to ensure friendly, fast service.

Aaron and his staff know how to make great BBQ, how to make you feel welcome, and how to make want to go back! The variety of sauces complement the BBQ, and the meats are incredible!

We stopped in there today coming from San Antonio heading back to Arkansas. We made a great choice stopping here. I ask when we walked in what was good and they said everything and they were not wrong! I had smoked turkey dinner and my...husband had the ribs and everything was excellent. Sauces were all great as well. And I cannot say enough about how friendly all the employees were. Stop here you will not be disappointed!More

The name — clever— and other reviews as well as easy off 82 drew us in. I also like idea of a “family owned” restaurant. Though we are on our way home from a week in east TX, one more BBQ meal sounded good! We...thought our meals: pulled pork sandwich/spicy sauce with potato salad and black eyed peas and pulled chicken/Plano sauce with coleslaw and green beans were delicious! We also enjoyed the many signs e.g. “Cookin’ butt and taking names” and pigs reading chicken cookbooks, etc. the staff was friendly and efficient. Would have been a 5 rating if they’d had catfish on the menu. 😁More

Always greeted with many smiling faces behind the counter - everyone that works here is there to make your dining experience such a joy. Shelcey took our orders and made sure we got exactly what we wanted. Rom made sure not to skimp on the...meat. Micah did the same with sides and took care of us after we were seated. Donna was working the drive thru, but made sure to give us a smile when we caught a glance. My wife and I eat here several times/month - never have we experienced anything but the best food and service in Sherman.More

The best BBQ I’ve had in awhile! The pulled chicken was moist. Brisket was smoked perfectly. Gumbo was good & very spicy. There’s sweet or spice bbq sauce. We combined them together! The mustard potato salad & jalapeño cornbread casserole were both very good. Huge...portions!!! We couldn’t finish everything! Will most definitely stop by again when in the area!More

Not only is the BBQ enought to write home about, but the level of service can't be beat! The award winning sides are almost worth the trip without even talking about thos mouth watering ribs. This place is on my list of frequent places to...get some good grub. I have tried everything they have to offer, and I haven't had a bad meal yet! Give them a try, you will NOT regret it.More

I lived in Sherman for 7 months before I finally tried this gem. I’m quite the foodie. I can eat food and be satisfied, but I really appreciate GOOD food, and I know when I find it. Let me tell you, if you’re looking for...GOOD BBQ, don’t even think about going to RibCrib until you’ve been here. This is the best BBQ in the area, and the best BBQ I have found outside of a local place back in my hometown. The owner took my order, and gave me some suggestions which I thoroughly enjoyed. I had the pulled pork sandwich served open face with a gravy they make once a week from the brisket drippings. For sides, I had cowboy beans and cornbread dressing. This was one of the best meals I’ve had since living here, and can’t wait to go back. Add in the smiles on everyone’s faces as they welcomed you in, it was just a fantastic experience all around.More

A lot of good people at this place, it's sometimes hard to figure out who owns it because they are all so nice. Great place, great food, and always very accommodating to my handicapped wife and daughter!
