I can't even begin to tell you how thoroughly disappointing our meal was here. We read plenty of reviews prior to arriving here and chose this place based on the positive reviews. Well, these folks must eat the blandest food imaginable if they think this is quality BBQ. First off, this is baked meat, not BBQ, There was no grill... More

If you are into bland BBQ sandwiches then you will like this. Stopped by to pick up some sandwiches for work and was not very impressed. The sandwiches didn't have any smoke flavor at all. The meat ws very tender and moist just! I eat a lot of BBQ and like to taste the smoke and I know some people... More

I went to this place last night after it was recommended by a friend. I recently had knee surgery, so being close and having a drive-thru was convenient. As I waited (a long time) I saw a woman walk in and after some time, walk back out without any food. A young employee chased her out saying "ma'am, ma'am." After... More

We were traveling through Amarillo and wanted to have some Texas barbecue. Henk's was close by where we stayed. It was late, about 8:30PM. The were out of ribs, not too surprising. The gal there recommended the combo plate, summer sausage, the shredded beef, and a slice of ham. This came with cole slaw, potato salad, beans and a bun.... More

We have enjoyed Henk's BBQ for many years. It is a friendly atmosphere and great food. The Frito Pie is worth driving across town for. Family owned and operated!!

This is one of those terrific hole-in-the-wall type of restaurant that people do not want to miss. Besides getting a lot of food for your money, the food is really delicious. It was recommended to us by a clerk at the nearby Texas Information Center.

My wife and I both ordered the chopped beef plate; for nine bucks you get a huge pile of meat, a large bowl of pinto beans, scoops of potato salad and cole slaw, and a bun. All the food was pretty good and was far more than either of us could eat. I only rated the restaurant as average because... More
