  • 4 star review  Good food served meat n 3 style. Home made sides and pies. BBQ was your standard fair, but the smoked bologna and sausage were really good. Be ready and sure what sauce you want too, because they ladle in on right there after they cut the meat for you. Its a thin sauce, but the sweet and spicy is good.

  • 5 star review  Great food, friendly staff. Not a fancy joint, but the food is the reason to be here, not the ambience. It DOES have a welcoming "cowboy" feel to it though. ?Meats are all amazing and sides are really good also. Never thought I'd be interested in smoked bologna, but after having their combo meat plate, I'll be ordering it again! Best smoked sausage in Nashville! Just nothing bad to say about Tex's!

  • 5 star review  Genuinely incredible BBQ. Easily my favorite spot in town - infinitely better than peg leg porker, way better than Edley's and light years ahead of Martin's. Service is friendly and personable and portions are massive. Food is always delicious and sometimes the line is out the door but it always goes quickly. Cannot stress this enough when I say the people who work here are genuinely great people. From the owner to the gentleman carving up the meat to the smiling lady at the register and the dude's who clear your plats, this place is a testament to service and quality. Become a regular, you won't regret it.

  • 5 star review  This is an authentic traditional barbecue restaurant! My first visit, and I'm a Nashville native. The fellow cutting the meats said that it's been open for about 40 years. I've passed here many many times, noticed all of the cars there and told myself that I need to try it sometime. Ribs, beef brisket, pulled pork, BBQ chicken, etc. Sandwiches, self serve vegetables/sides, pies and cobbler for dessert. Only open for lunch during the week. One word: delicious!
