“Best Smoked Ribs East of Texas”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 8, 2014

We have been eating at this restaurant since it opened but I never thought to write a review. We travel a lot and love Texas Bar-B-Q. They smoke all their meats for at least 24 hours. The ribs are the meatiest ribs you will ever find and it's all I can do to eat a half a rack which comes with cornbread. They have great sides like BBQ beans. This is a counter meal place. Step up, order & pay and within minutes the server brings your dinner to the table. Picnic table seating indoors and out. The staff is very friendly and I always try to bring friends here who have not tried their BBQ before this. They all agree it's the best BBQ anywhere.

“Great BBQ”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 1, 2014

We stopped here out of convenience - pretty much everything else in the area was closed by the time we came off of the mountain. But after skiing, this really hit the spot. The food is great and the portions are huge. I would definitely go back next time we are in the area. The only downfall was all of the screaming kids, but there's nothing they can do about that.

“Loved the Brisket”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 28, 2014

Not many choices in the area, but this one is worth the visit.

Ribs were so-so, pulled pork was on the sweet side - but the brisket was excellent!

“Smoked turkey was awesome”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 25, 2014

The smoked turkey was so good it was ridiculous. Loved the potato salad and the big sandwiches! The BBQ sauce on the table was just so-so. Very affordable. Lots of family-style tables and they have a drive-thru!

“Fantastic!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 21, 2014

Went into this place on a whim while on spring break. The staff was friendly and the food was delicious! Got tons of entertainment out of a guy trying to do the mountain man challenge at a table near us! I'd say the only downfall is that the sides are overpriced. All in all, great place. Can't wait to visit next time I'm here!
