“Good BBQ”
Reviewed 4 March 2014

The food is great at Heavy's. We eat there occasionally. Really enjoy their ribs, brisket, potato salad & beans! The smell is awesome when you drive by! Could be a little more friendly when you go in, but oh well.

“Good BBQ - Fair price”
Reviewed 19 January 2014

Was in town for ministry event at state prison. Stopped for lunch on Saturday. Nice atmosphere, clean, etc. - no problems.

Got the "Heavy D". Brisket and sausage in a bowl covered with pinto beans and BBQ sauce for $6.50.

Was a lot of food for the money and very tasty. I couldn't eat all of it and that is unusual. Would eat there again.

“Wonderful BBQ”
Reviewed 22 November 2013

The awesome smell hits you as soon as you open your car door. The turkey is phenomenal, so moist. I also loved the brisket, cole slaw, and beans. The potato salad was one of the best I've had at a BBQ joint. Definitely worth the visit!

“Ribs and Sausage.”
Reviewed 6 October 2013

Ordered takeout. Pork ribs and Sausage. What I always order from a barbecue place. Felt that both were very good.

“Heavy's BBQ”
Reviewed 8 June 2013

I like Heavy's because there sauce isn't to sweet. There barbecue sauce has a little kick to it. They also have pretty good smoked turkey. The brisket is delicious and there ribs. The Oasis in nearby Uvalde is better though. The most popular is Bill Miller's in Castroville since its a chain. But Cowpokes in Pearsall is the best barbecue in Medina County.
