Hands down the best turkey sandwich that I have ever ate! My husband is a fan of the ribs which were nicely smoked. My only complaint is that it seems to take a long time to get ones food after ordering despite the food(BBQ) obviously...More

Try the chopped beef or the smoked turkey! The sandwiches are excellent, as are the baked beans, cole slaw, and potato salad! Portions are bigger if you sit inside, but the drive through (although slow) is a nice option. They have excellent pies!! Grab a...More

Backyard has absolutely the best ribs by far. I grew up in Magnolia but haven't lived here in 20 years. Every time I return this is the must eat. I've travelled all over the world and had the staples of Americana BBQ and none measure...More

Outstanding Que in the perfect surrounding. You better get there early for lunch, they get busy. And for good reason, it is excellent BBQ. I've had the ribs, and pulled pork sandwiches. Excellent every time.

I grew up in a family that knew how to BBQ. What most folks call BBQ is plain smoked meat with BBQ dipping sauce. That's NOT BBQ! The meals here are pricy and just not what BBQ is supposed to be. I'll wait and eat...More
