This is a take out only, "down and dirty," BBQ stop. It's easy to decide not to stop when you drive by, very little to make you want to step inside BUT... We parked outside the cinderblock building nest to their BBQ pit, still hot from the day's smoking. Once inside the choices were classic, the smell intoxicating, the staff... More

Feels like walking back in time because this place has been here forever. Excellent BBQ and smoked meats. People drive all the way from Oklahoma for the pimento cheese, so that's something.

Carry out only. Fast service. A little pricy but that's expected at a barbecue place. Lots of customers at lunch. Family owned and operated.

I moved away from Wichita Falls 40 years ago. Every time I go back I have to pick up Prine's BBQ brisket, beans, and potato salad to take back to Oklahoma for the family. Picked up some this weekend and it's still just as good as ever. Still love this place.

I live in Wichita Falls so I go there often to pick up a sandwich to go or get some of their pimento cheese which has ham in it and is delicious! they offer wonderful pork, beef, ham and sausage sandwiches or plates to go as there is no place to sit and eat there. All of the meats are... More

Nothing fancy hear except the great BBQ. Take out only. A must if you are passing through or staying in the area.

This place is an all time favorite of the family for many years. It has become a take out only, but it is still great. Brought the sandwiches back to the motel & enjoyed them in our comfort.

Prine's is off the beaten path but, man, is it good. Definitely worth the trip for this local favorite. It is authentic, pit-smoked barbeque. No liquid smoke in sight. DELICIOUS.

Because there's nothing at all to change. Drive up and feel strange about getting a meal from a little shack? You'll get over that quick! I've been coming here all my life, and make certain I stop in every time I am visiting home. Try the chopped beef sandwich, all the way. (with chow chow) You won't find any flavor... More
