Tried them 3 times now hoping it would have gotten better. Nope. BBQ is good, staff is in no hurry to serve you, salad/sides bar looks nasty and unappetizing.

We first visited this place when it first opened its doors years ago, and it was a refreshing new concept. The other day we decided to go on a short road trip, but stopped by there to get lunch before all the ‘lunch commandoes’ showed up. This mutt loves tranquility and a quiet atmosphere. This mutt was hungry for a... More

The brisket here is very good, sausage is good but not exceptional. Sauce is on the table and cold -advice to owners: heat up the sauce. Service (cafeteria style) was good. Place was clean and friendly.Beans were lacking in flavor but okay; potato salad okay.

Was traveling back from a work trip and stopped in to see what the buzz was about. It was good, busy, reasonably priced. Anything battered and Fried is made to order. Skip the fried pickles...nothing special..Ranch was tastless, Pickles lacked seasoning. If in town I'll stop and eat again

Today, driving by Navasota at lunchtime, we'd never been to the town, so pulled off. Checked reviews and felt good about heading to Mallett Bros. Unless you are looking for it, the round sign with their name circled around is difficult to read. In terms of branding, a bigger or easy-to-read sign could better establish their name. I asked for... More

Always good BBQ. Have a cafeteria style service for their BBQ with a good selection. If you order off the menu service is a little slow. They have a jalapeño cheeseburger that is delicious and worth the wait.

I made a first trip to Mallett Brothers. I probably should have ordered the Brisket or Chicken, both of which looked really good, but I had a taste for Ham, so I ordered the Smoked Ham. The smokiness was nice, but the Ham just average. My sides were good--Cole Slaw and Pinto Beans. The prices are average and the restaurant... More

This place has very good BBQ, nice an smokey. The sausage is also very good. It is a cafeteria style restaurant, but some things, like fried catfish, are cooked to oreder. The blackberry cobler was excellent. They have Shiner Bock, so we don't need to say anything else about the beer. If you are going for dinner, watch the closing... More
