Great place to stop! I had the pulled pork & sides. Really good flavor & the house BBQ sauce was excellent. Staff was friendly and warm. It is a cafeteria style service so knowing what you want when you walk in the door! My favorite side was the potatoes & peppers.

Soulman's BBQ is very hard to review as there was such a disparity between the brisket and the ribs. The brisket had an off flavor and color and the texture of the meat was unusual. The weirdest tasting brisket we have ever experienced. The ribs on the other hand were great. They were tender, not fatty and had a very... More

Cant praise these guys enough on the food and cleanliness of this place. People behind the boards are friendly and always have a smile. I normally get the truckers special so I have some to take home for later. The ribs are always great and the sauce is OMG yes please. Tator salad is good but the coleslaw lacks flavor.... More

I was headed from DFW to Tyler Tx for a business trip. Had flown all day, not eaten, and wanted some BBQ. You can't miss Soulman's BBQ in Van. The billboards lured me in for a great late lunch. I had the brisket plate and it was very good. The meat and sauce were great. Staff was friendly, sides were... More

We stopped here on an I-20 road trip and had to back track to find the right exit, but it was so worth it! There's a good pickup truck ratio in the parking lot, and inside there's a cafeteria line buffet. Our brisket was cut fresh to order, and then came the tough part: choosing our sides. There must have... More

We didn't have a long time to stay in Texas, so we decided to try some bbq before we left the state. Their pulled pork sandwich is delicious!

We always get the chopped brisquette. They really pile it up high, the sauce is great, we always need extra. They do a really great job of trimming off the fat. Hate biting into a hunk of fat. If we want BBQ this is the only place we go.
