This place loves OU and that's surprising in NM... so it got the four rating. The pulled pork was pretty good and the Cole slaw very good. The place is clean and friendly and I liked the " not a chain" thing. The Apple pie...More

Good food at reasonable prices. I had chicken and brisket. My wife had pulled pork and sausage. All good. Sides were good. Blackberry and peach cobblers also good. Free ice cream if you want it.

Even though we arrived at noon on a weekday, we received our food pretty fast. And it was very, very good. The staff was friendly and even served us free ice cream to top off our meal.

Visited Henry's Barbeque today for lunch. Had the chicken salad sandwich special. It was very good. The prices are very reasonable. I will definitely make a return visit.

I ordered a chicken sandwich. I got a piece of chicken on 2 pieces of white bread. That's it! Really? I think a child could have made a better sandwich.

I had #5 3 rib plate with baked beans and coleslaw. Delicious. Others had #1 with ribs and sausage. Apple cobbler was terrific but no ice cream . Friendly staff and good atmosphere. Will definitely visit again.

Their meats are tender and with good flavor. I suggest a combo plate. They let you add the barbecue sauce which comes in mild and a spicier version . The rolls were home made and the potato salad was delicious. Prices are reasonable. Overall I...More
