I had to go to Brenham on business, so I stopped for lunch at Nathan’s BBQ, a place I had never visited before. The staff took me under their wing for ordering and I landed the sloppy joe lunch order, with amazing potato ‘chips’, the...More

Great bbq chicken, ribs, brisket. This is very good bbq but the prices are a bit high. It’s convenient but if price is important, look elsewhere.

Brisket and sausage, wife had chopped beef sandwitch. Brisket was somewhat tough and seemed to be under smoked and with little beef flavor. Sauce is a sweeter sauce good for pork ribs but overpowers beef brisket. Prices are competitive. An average place, we will probably...More

After taking a 7 month fast from meat, I decided to break that fast at Nathan's. My taste buds have been reset having not eaten bbq for that long. I had the ribs, baked beans, and twice baked potatoes. I have to say, the ribs...More

I research the places I choose when traveling primarily through Trip Advisor so I hope this is useful when choosing where you spend your money. Pitiful. Food quality was very, very poor and the service was blatantly rude. 4-5 workers behind the counter ignored me...More

My wife & I stopped this week. She had the BBQ stuffed potato, I had the sliced brisket sandwich. She loved her meal. She could barely finish it as it was a huge potato full of BBQ, etc. My sandwich was fantastic. It was huge!...More
