My grandson played in a Mesquite baseball tournament today, April 29, 2017, and we took advantage of being in Mesquite to have some good BBQ. I stopped here regularly when returning home from a shooting range on the Trinity River in the past. This is not a chain but is privately owned. This was the first visit in some time... More

I was so glad when they revamped their restaurant, it is much better than before. I have been very pleased with the new food selections and the stuffed baked potato is as awesome as ever. their prices can't be beat either.

As often as I can I run in for a quick take out lunch. BBQ is always tasty along with the most friendly staff. This is a Mesquite must do.

The BBQ HERE is hit and miss . Sometimes it is the best ever sometimes it is trash . I do not know if it is just the quality of the meat or smoking technique.. It is never the same . Excellent sauce and friendly service during the day .. Always go back but always a gamble

I wish I had gotten the name of the guy at the door of the 8 Second Club at the Mesquite BBQ because he was fantastic. The kind of attitude, energy, professionalism & friendliness that would be an asset to any company. The bartenders were terrific too. I am a southern guy so I have a southern flair for BBQ... More

This is a good place for BBQ. You can order your food to eat there or to take out. The restaurant had been remodeled recently and is more cozy than it used to be. Good place for lunch or dinner .

This was a revisit and no improvement. The meat is OK but they should concentrate on having goo bar-b-cue rather than having an extensive menu. But the real problem is turning the place over to teenagers in the evening. They are a prime example of why the minimum wage should not be increased. Playing first, customers second. What a shame!

There is no place in Mesquite that makes better BBQ than Mesquite BBQ. The meat of any kind is always juicy. The BBQ sauce tastes like the meat. The sides are few but good. The only negatives are: 1. No drivethrough, but you can park three feet from the door sometimes. 2. The building is small, greasy, rundown, very basic,... More

Let me just say, I travel for a living. Never have I ever experienced a friendlier staff to take your bbq order with a smile. The food is delicious, and it's even great to take home with you. The location is perfect, right in old downtown Mesquite!

This is the best bbq in town. Yes It is a little whole in the wall but best bbq by far in the area. We always get the chopped beef sandwich plate and it's big enough to share.
