“The Best”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 1, 2012

We have been fans of Thompson's BBQ since we stumbled across them a decade ago. The ribs are our favorite and always tender and are the brisket and sausage. The sauce is excellent and the peach cobbler out of this world.

“The Best Barbecue In Texas”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 4, 2008

All the barbecued meat at Thompson's just melts in your mouth. It is without a doubt the best barbecue in Texas. Believe me, you haven't had the best in Texas until you stop by Thompson's. You can also expect courteous service from Mr. Thompson as well as all the employees.

“Best Barbecue in the Nation”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 29, 2008

Each visit to Crockett I eat my God Father's Barbecue. Sometime I call and wish that he can send me some chopped beef and ribs through the mail or by UPS. You must stop and dine in if you are ever there or just passing through Crockett!

Thompson's Bar-B-Q is the best in town!!!!! I have never tasted ribs that simply melt in your mouth. very inexpensive and people friendlt. This is a down home resturant and very family oriented!!!! When passing through, just stop by and try the food. You will not regret the stop!!!!!
