The prices are very fair, and the food is very good. This is a cafeteria type of line, so the food is done very quickly. I enjoy the food and my husband is a huge fan. The baked potatoes are the best.

Food will compare to some of the best barbecue restaurants around. Good variety of options. Brisket and spare ribs I would highly recommend.

We had a group of 9 stop in for lunch. I think we all got the sandwich. It was a unique way to serve the sides, we got 2 sides each, and they were like buffet style. We served ourselves which 2 we wanted, there were like 6 hot sides and maybe 6 cold sides to choose from. The sauce... More

It has been about 9 months since I've been to Outlaw's due to bad service! Ordered the Sheriff Burger and I checked on about 15 minutes after I had ordered. They hadn't even started it! When I asked about, the young lady glared at me from the grill area like I shouldn't have even checked! About 10 minutes later it... More

If you like BBQ this is a good choice. It does have some cajun specialties like Red Beans, Rice and Sausage on Mondays and Crawfish during certain months. Their bbq sauce which is served on the side is red based. Main dishes are beef, pork and chicken served with sides.

Chopped. Chicken BBQ sandwich rice and beans. All bad and cold. Everyone seemed ready to call it a day. It was a long travel day for us and we were looking forward to a hot meal.
