This is by far one of the best BBQ joints I have ever been to! This is how a BBQ restaurant should be. Great staff, rustic setting inside and amazing food. As we were eating, Tyler himself came out from the kitchen and talked with us. Really nice guy. They only make a certain amount of food everyday so they can maintain their quality of food. Once they're out, that's it, they close. It could happen at 4pm or 8pm. We were referred here by a couple of locals. They told us to get there early before they run out of food. I thought they were joking. As we were sitting down eating, they ran out of food and the closed sign went up. As he was doing that, a couple of regulars came in, (Tyler knew them by name). He apologized and told them they were done for the night. They were bummed but apparently knew how it works and said they would be back the next day. Everything is homemade and very good. Yes, the beans are more like a bean soup rather than the "typical" beans in a sweetened sauce. Still, they are really good. If you are in Amarillo, you must make this a stop during your time there. You won't be disappointed!

No frills here, but the chopped brisket and the ribs were excellent. Standard sides, and they appear to be homemade. The beans are not BBQ beans but rather a soupy, smokey, peppery mixture. The sauce is a sweet BBQ type, similar to kc masterpiece. Two plates with two sides, toast and drinks were about $30. You can get takeout, and there are daily specials. Not fancy, just good BBQ. Soft drinks only.

Good for take out, poor atmosphere for eating on site. Rustic, crowded and noisy. You can call your order in then pick it up (recommended) or you can stand in a short line to order as you walk through. The BBQ was very good, beans just okay. Limited seating available.

We have a saying - "dinner without wine is just food." That says it all. We left without eating. I may try it for lunch.

We read about Tyler's in TripAdvisor and decided to stop there to bring home barbeque for dinner. Per my husband, the 2nd best he'd had in his life. His best, is now closed. This is the best ribs for me! Ordered a 1/2 slab of ribs, pint of cole slaw and beans, put it in the cooler and drove 5 hours home. After the long drive we were starving and sat down for dinner. OMG, the ribs were tender, moist and tasty. It melted in your mouth! The sauce is a tangy sweet and tart...delish! The coleslaw was just how I like it. Tangy, but mayonaisy as well. The beans were done, but not mushy. Great texture. I was in heaven! Can you imagine if we ate it there instead of 5 hours later?!? There were 7 HUGE juicy ribs that served two dinners for us.
