We had to find a new caterer for our daughter's wedding 3 weeks before the wedding in July 2015! Our wedding coordinator recommended McKethan Brothers and it could not have worked out better! They catered above & beyond what we had originally planned to have and at a much better price! The food was awesome! I just can't believe how... More

We visited McKethan Brother after a football game recently. We were seated fairly quickly which was surprising since they had a pretty full parking lot when we arrived. We put in our order and enjoyed the football games on the big screen. About 45 minutes later our server came by and said our food would be up in a couple... More

Visited after ASU-Miami game for lunch. Restaurant was fairly quiet. Ordered Pulled Pork with their fries. Service was great but food was just above average. Liked their competitor slightly better!

The BBQ was pretty good. The burgers were awesome the only bad thing was the tomato they put in the burger was the stem end piece which belongs in the garbage. Had to send both tomatoes back. Inky mention it because it shows they dont care what they throw on your sanfwich. The fries were over cooked and hard. But... More

ordered the half rack ribs, average bbq, still had the membrane inside of the rib cage, sweet potato was so cold it would not even melt the butter, I was expecting much more from this place. JD's at Connally Springs is much better.

St Louis ribs and chopped pork were a little dry, but very tasty... Hushpuppies were great as were the sweet potato, fries and greens. Mac and Cheese was very tasty but portion was a little on the small side... Overall, even tho we came on a holiday weekend and our waitress was admittedly 'new', service was good and attentive. Enjoyed... More

WE HIGHLY, HIGHLY, HIGHLY RECOMMEND MCKETHAN BROTHERS!!! We had Ben and Sarah McKethan do the catering for our wedding. We had St. Louis Ribs and Smoked Chicken and it was DELICIOUS!! I completely lost count of how many people came up to me and my wife and told us it was “by far the best wedding food they’d ever had.”... More

The barbecue here was really tasty. I particularly liked the spicy sauce; I wasn't in the mood for really spicy, just something with a little kick. This sauce fit the bill. The brunswick stew was excellent. My sides were great. Jalapeño cheese grits and collard greens. The waitress was sweet and very attentive. The only issue is that this place... More
