Bone Daddy's catered lunch for 3 days at an event I attended. I'm from Texas, and an accomplished pit master with decades of experience so my expectations were lowered. Day 1. The ribs were good. Lots of meat but slightly undercooked. Their potato mash was excellent; prepared with garlic. Cole slaw was bland and tasted like sour cream, not cole... More

This has to be the absolute worst BBQ I have ever eaten. My family ordered a big platter of various meats, including chicken, sausage, and something beef. My #1 problem with Bone Daddy's isn't the taste. It's the fact that they served us raw chicken! We got our meal to go, and when we got home and cut into the... More

Nice portion size. Best is their Brisket. Second is ribs. The combo is the best way to try different things.

I try to come to Bone Daddy's whenever I come to Midland. It isn't anything crazy good, but it is definitely the best in the area and worth the drive.

Bone Daddy's in Midland is the best BBQ you are going to get in Midland. The brisket is the best and portion size is more than satisfying. The best kept secret is their whole smoked turkey around the Holidays. Their smoked turkeys are the absolute best tasting turkeys you will ever have. Fully cooked, you only have to reheat the...

Award winning barbecue, excellent food, and decent prices. My only complaint is you never really know if they will be open when you want to eat there. They sometimes close the restaurant to go to BBQ competitions.

While most restaurants in midland are at best "good for midland" Bone Daddy's is genuinely good. They could hold their own against BBQ joints in Memphis or KC. I just wish they were open longer hours.

In the area visiting the kids for Easter, stopped in for lunch. As far a bbq joints this was run of the mill. Nothing was bad but nothing jumped out as great. I had a sampler with ribs, brisket & pulled pork. The brisket was the best of the 3 meats with the ribs 2nd. Definitely worth a stop to... More

This is authentic barbecue. The ribs are delicious, but they're not for everybody. They are meaty and well seasoned, and intensely smoky. So smoky in fact, that it might be too much for some people. They're also a bit of work to eat - those with dentures should steer clear. The cornbread biscuits are delicious! So is the potato salad,... More

I have experienced this cuisine twice. The food gets rave reviews. Both times it was catered. Personally I do prefer a tomato based BBQ sauce. Theirs is more like the Texas style BBQ. Liquid smokey burnt blackish so I did not care for the ribs. However their BBQ chicken was somewhat better because you can remove the skin. Beans slaw... More
