“MY FAV BBQ”
Reviewed November 27, 2012

haven't been to this location yet - but based on the original one I'm sure it's just as good - Great for take out - or a picnic!

“Excellent BBQ”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

Not the best I've had, but very good nonetheless. The restaurant looks like a dive from the outside, but it was clean inside. The BBQ is very good, with tender meat and good flavors, with decent sides. Note that the dinners are a LOT of food.

“Great BBQ”
Reviewed October 25, 2012

In making BBQ myself (smoking meat at low temps over long periods of time), I can tell you that Honey Bears makes some of the best BBQ. You can't really go wrong. If you've never been there start out with a simple puled pork sandwich.

“Not your sickening sweet BBQ Sauce”
Reviewed October 17, 2012

I'm not a fan of the syrupy sweet BBQ sauces served at most BBQ restaurants. Honey Bears, despite the name, has a vinegary-spicey sauce that I absolutely love. I've have even bought it a half gallon at a time from them to take home for my own BBQing pleasure. The one thing I can't compete with at home is the oh-so-tender pulled pork. The flavor is excellent. The sides are very good.

If you're looking for fine dining, this might not be your cup of tea. But go to some of the best barbeque establishments in Texas and you'll experience a similar "ambiance". This is just plain good food, pure and simple.
