We visited place while bar hopping one night. We didn't eat any of the food but we did have some drinks. The beer they serve is good and so are the mixed drinks. Service was also very good.

Here on a buisness trip,eating at Teaxas Roadhouse the other night. Craving for good barbecue speaking with the bartender, she mentioned I shouldn't tell you this but all the business people that eat here rave about Brian's Backyard Barbecue, it's about 5 miles down the road on 211 back towards the hotels. Friday night I was on a mission to... More

First time here with my family and was incredibly disappointed. While the waitress was pleasent, she was practically non existent. We waited for exactly an hour an 15 mins for our Food, which was just 3 dinners. Nothing crazy. The food was lukewarm when it did eventually come out, except for the Mac and cheese and sweet potatoe Sides. Those... More

Although they have an ATM machine on site I didn't want to use it. Don't want to pay the fees. I was looking forward to BBQ but oh well. At least they told me before I ordered. Maybe next time.

The place has plenty of seating, the decor is very out dated. The bar, staff and food are great. Love the pulled pork. Pub poker USA plays FREE poker here Tuesday Nights @ 6:30 and 8:30. I love to get out, have dinner and play cards. Its for fun and points, no money.

Very casual roadside restaurant...fair portions...good soups....pulled pork in tasty vinegar-based sauce. VERY slow service...one of their beer lines was frozen - after waiting perhaps half hour, finally the waitress reported it probably wouldn't thaw. Singer /guitarist was good - though his repertoire consisted of about 2 years' worth of 1970's music - patrons were singing along however! Smokers right outside... More

If you like authentic BBA then Brian's us the place to go. Roadhouse atmosphere -super casual. Live music. Drinks a tad pricey for the venue but you're there for the food!
