“Worth the stop when traveling”
Review of Mikeska's Bar-B-Q

This is a small BBQ restaurant that is worth the stop for lunch. Prices are very reasonable and they offer a fairly good variety. The chopped beef sandwich is a favorite for my husband and son. We've also had their huge stuffed potatoes and I like to order a vegetable plate. Today I chose spinach, green beans, and corn. The green pea salad and banana pudding looked really good today too. The three of us were able to eat (2 sandwiches, chips, veggie plate + 3 drinks) for $15.56.

Mr. Mikeska was also there today greeting everyone with a smile and sincere thank yous. He went to all the tables and offered the kiddos "pennies" and then would give them a silver dollar. All of the animals mounted on the walls definitely give you plenty to look at and talk about!

Brisket was decent for a meal at $10. Better than McDonalds or Jack in the Box but nothing to write home about. That is if you don't want to show off the 100's of animals stuffed and mounted. If hunting bothers you, avoid this place!

Jerry Mikeska's legendary BBQ has been a favorite of mine for many years. The food is always great, especially the melt-in-your mouth brisket, and the ambience is interesting - this place has probably close to 100 mounted deer, antelope, exotic game, bear, and fish on the walls and at the front doors - definitely not a place to take a vegetarian! Mr. Mikeska has been running this place for years and is there every day to greet his customers and thank them for stopping in - a quality you just don't se any more. The brisket, sausage, and chicken here are delicious, but the sides can be a little bit bland sometimes. I also wish they were a little more environmentally friendly - all the utensils are plastic and all the tableware is styrofoam. But, if you have a true love of Texas BBQ, then don't miss this place - well worth the stop - and Mr. Mikeska appreciates your patronage!

Spent father's day here with the family. Drove all the way from Houston to enjoy the brunch/lunch buffet.

Most of the sides were canned products which I'm totally ok with because it lets the restauran focus on what they do the best and that's smoke a pretty good brisket, ribs, and chicken. I enjoyed the banana pudding the best!

It was nice that Mr. Mikeska himself comes out to greet all his guests. It's a nice and appreciated that he mingles with his guests.

come early if you want to grab a table, this place only has seating for 100.
