This was a delightful place to eat. The food was great and the service friendly. Did not wait anytime for a hot meal. The amount of food per serving is huge.

Regular at Outlaw's BBQ. Both locations are equally great. Pressed pulled pork po-boy and beans are hard to beat. All the sides are good.

First time eatting at Outlaws I had Burger and Beans and it was very good. On the second visit I tried half a chicken fresh out of the smoker... it was very good as well and thankfully wasn't dried out. It's definitely worth eatting at...More

Warren W, our burgers are so good, because buy our meat from a local meat market and it's never frozen...so you get fresh pressed patties everyday! Thanks for noticing...and the secret to the beans is the little taste of rib meat we put in them...shhhh,...More

Everything is yummy here, and there's always plenty of space despite being popular. The ribs are great, but my favorite is the baked beans.

The BBQ is the best I've tasted in the south. The owner and management are great people and the staff was friendly and efficient. Great value on their daily specials.

Hands down best BBQ in the Cenla area. They have something for everyone that is BBQ. There sauce is amazing. Sometimes I just go for the smells, but leave with a stomach full! The choped baker is to die for!

Outlaws has a great menu, featuring BBQ of all meats as well as salads and burgers, as well as a loaded potato which is one of my favorites! The atmosphere is friendly and casual! Great place to eat!
