Ate there during the clinton era and it was awful. Much better now. The ribs are expensive but taste great. My wife enjoys the tamales. The chopped sandwiches should be avoided, they are the worst in town. As with anything the hype is over rated. Order a plate and it should be a pleasant meal.

Outstanding BBQ brisket sandwich, BBQ ham sandwich, as well as great fresh cut french fries from real potatoes. Place was busy on Sunday afternoon @ 2PM, but got seated quickly and had great service, as well as brief history from our server. Definitely a must stop if you like BBQ and french fries. Oh also have great cobblers for dessert. Will definitely be back when in Hot Springs.

We've been enjoying McClard's BBQ for many years because the food is consistently good, the truest sign of a great restaurant. Nothing fancy about the building, but the staff is friendly and efficient and the Q works its magic each and every time. We like the ribs and chopped pork but you've got to try the tamales too. We also bring home a bottle of McClard's sauce to tide us over between visits since we can't get to Hot Springs very often. Make McClard's a regular stop on your visits there. Your stomach will thank you.

And, that sauce was pretty spicy. That cause the four of us not to enjoy the food. I think you could order "normal" food there and you would be happy but the spicy sauce cause us not to really enjoy the meal. We got the tamale spread. All the food that we noticed looked good. Service was friendly and efficient and the price ok. It is a place to go because everyone else has been there. No credit cards and only cash.

I was told by locals to try the Tamale Spread. Man oh man that was good, and the ribs were pretty darn good too. Not the type of place for uppity folks.
