“Really good ribs. Simple choices.”
Reviewed March 13, 2012

Really good ribs, very "basic" for your options. Choose your meat or meats. If you get a plate - it comes with beans, potato salad and white bread. Optional onions and jalapenos. Sauce on the table, pay when you finish. If you want tea - it's sweet tea. Anyway, really good ribs, plenty of meat on the bones, friendly folks.

“No fluff, delicious BBQ, friendly service”
Reviewed February 28, 2012

RJ's has the best BBQ around! Not a fancy place, but a wonderful mom and pop BBQ joint. The portions are very generous. You won't leave hungry!

“A tasty gem in San Angelo”
Reviewed September 14, 2011

This place is so good you don't even have to take my word for it; the smell alone will draw you in. Rjs is a little free standing, family owned bbq heaven. I ordered chicken and sausage; which was so good the food coma of happiness set in upon the first bite! Ending this wonderful meal with banana pudding was the cherry topping this awesome day. This will be the stop we have to make every time.

I really dont know why everyone says it's rude service, they treated me just fine, and even if they were rude, I would'nt care, thats how good their BBQ is. I LOVE that place, goign back soon! BTW the chicken and the brisket are the best.

“Decent food, rude service”
Reviewed February 15, 2010

Decent food, rude service. They seem to open whever they feel like it. I was there after their advertised opening time of 11:00 AM one day and they still hadn't unlocked the doors! The man in the kitchen just kept pointing at his watching, don't know what he was trying to tell me?!? No personality in their service, just ask the order, then take the money, no niceties, smiles, etc.
