Went to the new place after the old one burned down and thought we'd try it out. Our mistake!!! The food was horrible and service even worse!! They used to be better at their highway location. Sealy is the best Hinze's BBQ there is hands down!!! Good food and good service!! They never let me down either coming or going... More

Knowing we would be passing thru Wharton, a friend recommended we eat at Hinze's. I appreciated the recommendation, as it was very good food, generous portions, and friendly service. W. Wagner, SF, TX.

Despite the size of the place which recently relocated due to a fire at its original location, it is worth the stop. Moist, delicious BBQ at its best. Try the sides of cole slaw, bacon and potato salad, baked beans - true Texas flavor. And leave room for the mile high lemon and chocolate meringue pies.

Stop to eat here on the way back home. We always stop here when traveling. We hadn't been here in a few years. The location was different. Not the same taste anymore. The food is over priced. It used to be a great place to stop for bbq. The food was over cooked and dry.

The food is very good. We have tried the chicken, sausage, beef brisket (sliced & chopped). Our favorite is the chicken - delicious!! The least favorite was the sliced brisket - fatty & some hard gristle that should have been trimmed off, but otherwise good flavor. The sides are average - we have tried the potato salad, corn, okra, fries,... More

This is their new location since the other place burned down. The BBQ is moist, perfectly seasoned and worth the try. I enjoyed the half chicken and pork rib plate. Very nice people too.

This restaurant has been around for many years but recently moved because of a fire. The new location is smaller but the same great BBQ is still served. It was pretty crowded for a Tuesday evening but we still got our order quickly.
