“Really enjoyed this BBQ”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 11, 2013

I had the pork ribs and smoked sausage two meat combo plate. I added the jalapeno corn and a salad with ranch dressing. Great fresh bread and Coca-Cola products. Food is great and the atmosphere is relaxed. It can get real busy around lunch time.

“What they do well, they do VERY well!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 5, 2013

Just went to dinner at Sharon's on a whim. The ribs, brisket and sausage (both regular and jalapeno) were super tasty and very well cooked. I was pleasantly surprised that they had beef ribs instead of pork ribs, you choose the sauce or sauces and even without sauce all of the meat was tasty and lightly seasoned. The cornbread was very good as were the simple beans and coleslaw. The only reason they didn't get 5 stars is the sides, they are just that, side players to the star, the bbq. Will definitely go again!

“Top BBQ in Texas”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 19, 2013 via mobile

We have eaten at Sharon's countless times and never once have we been disappointed. Their corn is to die for and their sandwiches are top notch.

“Had Much Better”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 13, 2013

Stopped in while passing thru town. Wish we would have looked a little further. Had a chopped beef sandwich. The sauce was pretty good but the beef wasn't chopped very well. Lots of bis chunks . We've had much better sandwiches. Nothing really stood out.
