Southern cuisine too often is limited to fried chicken and sweet tea these days with prerhaps a side of collard greens.. At Big Tex, Southern meets Tex-Mex, and the combination works. The sides at Big Tex are amazing Don't miss the roasted cream corn, creamy and thick, but with texture and a hint of smokiness. The Frito Pie is fun and delicious, cleverly served right in the bag. The veggie plate is an assortment of the amazing sides. Six of us dined there on Saturday night, and all of our dinners were superb. Both the Chicken fried steak and the Monteray Chicken were big hits. Even the kid's menu offers a variety of child friendly, healthy foods beyond the usual chicken strips and fries. Excellent, friendly service, too. Can't wait to go back and try more of the fare at Big Tex.

Big Tex has a great Decatur patio. I personally love the bar inside. It has plenty of space for a large crowd & tons of flat screen TVs to watch the game. In my opnion, not having a huge menu means everything they do, they do really well! I'm not really a burger person but my brother talked me into trying theirs a couple of months ago... fantastic! I literally had juice running down my arm!! The roasted cream corn is absolutely delicious. They have a great beer & liquor selection as well. This has become one of my weekly must visit places in the city.

Any meal is better when it's eaten outside. And great service is a huge plus. Food was good, copious servings, piping hot. Good, cold beer. Good iced tea. A stick-to-your-ribs kind of place. Nothing dainty here. Fun food.

Involved staff and owners, good food. Incredible portion sizes- either go with a big appetite, split an entree, or make sure you bring Tupperware for the leftovers!
