Was not impressed when I went here. Service was horrible and the Q was mediocre.

Loved this dark old school BBQ joint. You know the place is special when there isn't a menu available. Ribs, Brisket, or sausage....that's it! Make a pick and be prepared to be enjoy true East Texas BBQ!

This is one of those great East Texas barbecue joints. Going to try the ribs.

Go for the ribs, they won't disappoint. And if you've gotta go this place has an insane restroom.

Great ribs, turkey and beans. Brisket was dry.

Great food and flavor. The ribs have a good bark and snap. The sides were very tasty. The banana pudding was sweet to eat. Overall, the place lives up to the TM review. We would gladly eat here again.

This joint might as well be a Texas legend. I’ve heard so much about it from magazines, friends, and readers that I was dying to make it over to this storied establishment. In my research, I noticed the scorn heaped upon the new metal building with the cheesy awning reminiscent of Caligula XXI in Dallas. As I gazed at old photos on the wall of the now abandoned building next door that used to house…

The prettiest ribs in the region come steaming out of the Country Tavern’s enormously efficient kitchen, and the brisket’s good too. A dark-red sauce gives the hickory-smoked meats a sweet East Texas edge. The big, bustling place is like a cave tarted up with neon, but the waitresses have a girl-next-door quality, and the mood is family-friendly.
