My sister and I were on our way home from Fredericksburg when we came upon Burnet Feed BBQ off of Hwy 281. I had the brisket dinner and my sis had the pork rib dinner. I ate everything on my plate and it was delicious! I wished they had sold jars of the BBQ sauce as it was great! Wished we lived closer as I would go back again! Don't hesitate to stop!!!

Stopped into the Feed Store BBQ a couple of years ago for lunch. The chopped beef sandwiches were adequate. Hard to screw up chopped beef. The onions were EXCELLENT. Stopped again for supper yesterday while passing through. Most disappointing. Had pork ribs and jalapeno sausage and beans and pototato salad, both bland. Wife had a chopped baker. My ribs were greasy and the links had the taste and consistency of an Oscar Mayer frank. Wife's chopped beef on her tater is surpassed by what we can get at H.E.B. in a package. Don't think the locals go here, and we won't again, BUT the onions were good. Hard to screw up an onion.

Wife and I had lunch today in the Feed Store. Staff very friendly but the food is not up to even minimal BBQ standards for this area. Wife had chicken (dry). Ugh. I had brisket, jalapeño sausage and pork ribs. Wife's sides were slaw (not bad) and some veg (terrible). I had hot pintos and the slaw. Beans were realy ho hum, where's the heat?.. Ribs were not bad but the brisket was not cut fresh and sausage was more like Typical vac packaged super market sausage. All in all, we said, let's give it a try....we did and will not go back. Coopers in Llano is still the best in this area.

We took the Hill Country drive from San Antonio to Dallas mostly along Hwy 281 and stopped for lunch at Burnet Feed BBQ. It is on the highway, easy to find in Burnet. There is no mistaking that this place used to be a feed store! It has the shape, signs, raised front walkway and small silos. Inside you find a large "warehouse" style eating area complete with a cow display and walls of old photos with booths and tables. As expected order and pay first. We had the ribs, pork tenderloin, tater tot salad and potato salad. The two BBQ sauces are served warm and are not on the food. The "hot" sauce is quite peppery but delicious. The ribs were tender, and flavorful. The pork was also tender ($12 for the two meat combo). The tater tot casserole was really good. We also got a frito pie with Fritos, beans (with meat) and cheese. This was also good and very good value ($6). The meat was medium smoked I would say, he ribs more so than the pork. They also have chicken and turkey and sausage on the menu. A terrific unique stop in Burnet with friendly staff and great food.

We stopped in without having read any reviews. The staff was courteous and helpful with advice. Food is chosen from a food line, not at the table. I had the ribs and the young cook told me that he recommended the pork ribs. I took his suggestion. My wife ordered brisket and got a beef rib which was probably a mistake; nevertheless, we both found the meats to be exceptional. The meat was very smokey and the rub seasoning was excellent; but the beauty was the way the meat literally fell from the bone. There would be no need to scrape a bone here. I had a very tasty potato casserole which had a touch of jalapeno and was probably loaded with butter and cheese. I also had cole slaw. My slaw had minced apples and was sweet, very much to my liking and one which I would recommend. My wife had the cheesy cream corn and okra and tomatoes, both of which she thought were excellent. We shared one of their good-looking desserts, one called "pecan cobbler." It was A#1 in our opinion:sweet, gooey, filled with delicious pecans, and big! This a family oriented place, not a romantic spot. But it is clean, roomy, and spacious with high barn-type ceiling. We are from Kansas City and think we have good bbq there, but if this place were close we would be frequent customers. The price for both meals was about $30 which included tax, one soft drink, and a dessert.
