I had lunch with a business associate here. I had the trash plate. The bark on the rib had an aftertaste like it had a little too much smoke. The brisket was moist but just ok nothing to Wright home about. My colleague had the turkey he said it was nice and moist. I would eat here again but would... More

The food was very good and priced about the same as most area BBQ. The restaurant floor arrangement is awkward and inefficient, but the tasty food makes up for it.

Our go-to for local BBQ. My favorite is the stuffed baker but they are often out when I arrive. Ribs are moist and brisket is spot on with the right amount of bark. Sides are good but not outstanding and fries are not available which is a let down. Never tried the desserts but they look ok.

Was going through Cleburne on the way to our final destination and thought we'd stop here for lunch based on the reviews. Didn't smell the telltale smoke of a good bbq joint when we got out of the vehicle, but set aside any judgement. We ordered brisket and sausage with sides of potato salad, pinto beans, and green beans. We... More

Don't go for the atmosphere, but do Go for The food. Good counter staff, will accommodate you to the best of their abilities.... and don't expect anything fancy! Just good food!

The prices were good, the ribs juicy with lots of flavor. Liked the cole slaw and beans. Kids all liked their food. Potato was overcooked but the biggest disappointment was the brisket - too dry for our taste

Title says it all. Compared to the other choices in the Cleburne area this one is overall the best. It stacks up favorably to any I've had, certainly not the best ever but darn good. The prices and portions are good. Never had a complaint about service.

I'm glad I finally stopped in as I've been wanting to for a few years now. I had 1/4lb of brisket and 1/4lb spicy sausage with some of their spicy sauce. The brisket was a little dry but it wasn't bad. The sausage was very good and the spicy sauce was real good. It looks like a nice little place... More

Food was great. There was a large group and the hostess was extreme accommodating. Waitresses were "Johnny on the spot" with our needs. The wait time was quick. However, the meals arrived before the salads.

Buffalo Creek is our 'go-to' place for BBQ. I really like their brisket and ribs... Only complaint is BBQ is expensive and these folks follow suit, but when we get a call of the wild and our carnivore heritage sneaks out we go over to Buffalo Creek. Not a fan of some of their sides but the coleslaw is top... More

Welcome to Buffalo Creek BBQ. Our delicious, homemade meats, sides, sauces and desserts will change the way you think about the 'cue! Our brisket is slow-cooked over hickory wood for the perfect, smoky flavor. Our homemade sauces come in mild and spicy. Pair your brisket or sausage with our fried okra, fried squash or potato salad. Really hungry? Try our Texas Trash, a Frito pie piled high with brisket. We also cater, y'all.
