Description: Stanley's is the oldest operating mom and pop BBQ joint in Tyler, serving up true, pit smoked BBQ for over 55 years. Come try our perfect brisket, baby back ribs, turkey, fresh sausage, and pulled pork in a fun and family friendly atmosphere! Stanley's offers some other selections such as fish tacos and even has vegetarian items. Also be sure to try our two most popular sandwiches - The Mother Clucker and Brother-in-law. We have a newly renovated, covered, and enclosed patio where you can catch live music 6 nights a week. The patio is also now equipped with a full-bar that features Texas spirits, draft beer, and a nice selection of over 70 bourbons. We take pride to produce all our barbecue and sides fresh each day, so we occasionally sell out due to heavy and unanticipated guest traffic. Call ahead if you want to make sure we have something you're looking for! We also offer catering services for your next event. See you soon! Be kind and have fun!

I used to eat the bbq in the restaurant a few years ago and enjoyed it. very tasty. so I decided to use the business to cater a large party. Ordered 10lbs bbq. several weeks in advance. paid for it, picked it up, got home and it was obviously very short. weighed it and it was, by almost half. called to complain, told bbq sold out and said would send refund. NEVER saw the refund. haven't been back until 1 month ago for a bday lunch. it was average.
