When it originally opened; my teacher buddies and I would try and visit this place once a week; unfortunately the past three experiences will prevent me from going back. The owner struggles to maintain the ingredients needed to fulfill his menu. I am not even talking about running out of pork or a main item because they were busy; I'm... More

I so want to love this place, and quite frankly I have been a longtime customer who has watched this place significantly decline in quality over the years. Often when I go on in, I am the only one in there, and yet the service is abysmal. These people are lazy and are more interested in what they are doing... More

My friends and I stopped in for lunch. First thing I saw on the menu was the BBQ burrito so I ordered that with Mac n cheese and the jalapeño corn bread. Really good food and the corn bread was moist and tasty. Definitely going back for more.

Don't eat in. The music is very loud. When we went to a corner for quiet it smelled like a urinal. The meats were uneven. The brisket lacked moistness. The chicken was smoked through but had underdone skin. The ribs were good. The coleslaw was inedible but the cornbread was good.

We happened to be in Farmington and decided to stop by for lunch. I ordered a pulled pork sandwich with garlic mash for a side, sandwich was very good, the mash potatoes were dry, not really that good. My husband ordered a half rack of ribs...we get our food, drinks and plastic silverware which consisted of a fork and spoon...my... More

This is a good place. I can't give higher than average because every time we go there they are always out of something even at 4:00 on a Saturday. Poor planning. But what they do have is definitely good

Low key indoor/outdoor place with awesome beef Bbq. Friendly staff. Like being in Texas. Get the platter with 2 or 3 different meats. Good sides too

Food was always good even if they don't have beef ribs. We called in the order at 3:15, told it would be 2 hours because they were so busy. Got there at 5:15, food wasn't ready, had to wait another 20 minutes and place was empty! Also charged more than website prices. Apparently they haven't gotten around to updating the... More

When I expressed a hankering for a pulled-pork sandwich while at a baseball game, my friend suggested Flaggstead Texas BBQ, a place he'd driven by but never visited. We stopped on the way home. The sandwich was huge and was the best pulled-pork I've ever had! And at $6.99 it was a bargain - cheaper than the pulled-pork I would... More

Tried this place for the first time and was excited because I like Texas BBQ. Tried to go inside the tired looking house that holds the restaurant when it was supposed to open at 11:30 am. Doors were locked and it looked like no one was there. Started walking away and a man unlocked the door. Went in to order... More
