This is the best BBQ in the state of Texas. The Turkey is real Turkey, not some pressed meat from the deli!

This is no doubt the best Texas BBQ in the area. Love all the sides too especially the fried okra! And if I remember right all the sides are made from scratch. If you're ever in or near Wichita Falls give it a try!

Old standby in Wichita Falls. Very cowboy in atmosphere and always busy. Best brisket, best sauce, for healthier fare, their smoked turkey and chickens are fabulous. I love their potato salad and beans. They have fried okra, green beans etc. Authentic cowboy atmosphere but not changed (or maybe cleaned!!) from when I was first in town 30 years ago. They cater. Prices very resonable. Love their combination sandwich. Very good sausage also- not so salty but very flavorful!

Eating at the Banding Iron is always a treat. This is an authentic "down home" bar-b-que place and you can't beat the quality or the quantity of the food. The atmosphere is definately "local joint" and it's a neat place to take visitors! They don't take credit cards but do take checks. We have had them cater parties for over 150 people and we also will call to arrange a pick up order just for our family dinner. The brisket is always nicely trimmed so there is no waste (same with the pork) and of course there is no waste with the sausage. The potato salad is more of the creamy type and seems to be well liked by everyone. And that bar-b-q sauce...oh yum! Be advised it really rocks during lunchtime with everyone from cowboys with their spurs on to business men in suits...plan extra time at lunch since the line often goes out the door.

Downside: only takes cash. Other than that, the barbecue is the 2nd best I have ever had. In Wichita Falls, it is absolutely the best. The surroundings are a little worn but who cares? In fact, it adds character!
