Friendly staff greeted our arrival for lunch. The place was clean and ready for customers. The chopped beef sandwich was so tender and delicious, and go ahead and smother it in as much of their BBQ sauce as you like. My sandwich was made into a basket meal, so it came with a side which I picked potato salad. Mac... More

Here is a secret locals BBQ restaurant that has got them all beat. Behind a not so impressive store front set back from the street, you'll find super BBQ that has been in Conroe for years.

Absolutely the very Best Bar-B-Que in the state of Texas and probably every other state. Be sure to get there before 12:00 noon if you are going for lunch. Parking lot fills up and there will be no place to park except neighboring businesses. Every day this place is busy!! I love the chopped brisket sandwich, but everything is great... More

Their sides are serve yourself and great tasting. Drinks are serve yourself and varied. We don't use sauce but we've been told it is wonderfully flavorful. The atmosphere... More

Good portions, weekday specials, hand cut shoe-string fries, cooked perfectly made this diner a very happy person. The Monday Sandwich, Side, and Drink for $6.45 was awesome. Came back again for the double meet, side, and drink for under $10 made this place a favorite for our group. The BBQ was awesome.

Thank CaverScott

Hearing that our place makes someone happy makes my day! So glad you were a fan of the sandwich and our fries and I can't thank you and your group enough for coming back another time for more tasty BBQ.

My spouse and I enjoyed dinner here. The sliced brisket was tender with a smoky taste but you will need barbecue sauce as the meat is bland. The potato salad was good. My spouse enjoyed chopped beef brisket sandwich. The plus is the chopped beef doesn't have sauce mixed in like some barbecue joints.

Thank LCMAN61

Family BBQ Saturday. Today traveling through Conroe and chose McKenzie's. Staff was very friendly, helpful, and their enthusiasm stood out. Brisket was very tender and moist. I asked for outside cut and I was a little bit disappointed because I'm a bark shark. Good smoke flavor throughout and proper beefy flavor. Ribs were tender and flavorful with a sweet crust... More
