Sid's Main Street may not have the touristy allure of the BBQ joint down the street, but the 'cue and the sides are outstanding. Sid has developed some great recipes over the years, including precise times and temps on his smoker and some great homemade sides. As I travel the Texas Hill Country sampling barbecue, I use brisket as a... More

After reading the reviews, we decided to stop here to get a late lunch. We got a two meat plate with brisket and sausage, along with cream corn, green beans, and macaroni salad. The Brisket had a nice smoke ring was moist and very little fat. It was very good. The sausage was moist and also very good. The creamed... More

During a 3-day stay outside of Bandera, we were in town and needed to grab some lunch. BBQ sounded tasty so we stopped in for a to go plate. We ordered the Brisket & sausage plates with two sides each and it was bagged up and in my hands less than 5 minutes after ordering. That's rare even for typical... More

I had the 2 meat plate. I put the spare ribs at a 5 and the brisket at a 4. Brisket was not bad, just a tad dry for my taste. Great tasting BBQ sauce. I would come back.

Very small shop. Very good BBQ. I fancy myself as more than capable at a grill; however I knew at first taste I couldn't equal those ribs. Top sides were pinto beans and coleslaw. Ground brisket/pulled pork both fine stuff. Sauces on sweet side. Jalapeños and raw onions nice additions. Since no beers I'd go takeout next time cause it's... More

Most recent visit had the chicken special. It was wonderful. My favorite side is the pinto beans, but the potato salad was good when I tried it.

Had sliced brisket sandwich which was delish. Love their sauce. The brisket was melt-in-your-mouth tender and very tasty, even without the sauce. The potato salad was very good too. Next time we're in the area, we'll try something else.

Super delish BBQ! Never have been disappointed when I eat here and usually get the pulled pork sandwich with some fries. The Pinto beans are also yummy!!!

It's been two long years since visiting Sid's BBQ which if you are a Texas BBQ fan is way too long. I have an excuse, we recently returned to Texas after a two year hiatus. Tuesday's and Friday's Sid serves up a special treat, a BBQ Pork Loin sandwich which comes with one side and a large drink setting a... More
