Had the all you could eat ribs and they were delicious, especially their special sweet BBQ sauce. Been in town a week and have eaten and drank here 5 or 6 times. Prices are reasonable, happy hour 3-7, fast service, food great, even the salads! Enjoyed the outside sidewalk sitting watching people! Right across the street from the Worthington Renaissance...

There were 8 of us, we had pre booked. A good choice of food for both adults and children. I had BbQ ribs and steak on their 2 meat platter, my son just had the steak, food was lovely and there was plenty, service was great, would go back if I went to Stockyards again

I don't post too often and only to either praise, where it's genuinely due, or vice versa. This place was really poor - upon walking into the restaurant we looked at the food other diners were eating and alarm bells rang straight away. Unfortunately we didn't take heed and sat down. This establishment has a small number of outlets around... More

I am a brisket aficionado and their brisket is very good. It's fork tender and juicy. We ordered fried pickles and they are served as slices not spears which I have never seen before. I now prefer this method since it prevents double dipping!

Had a "quick" family lunch here. Actually it took a very long time to get our food, but they were very busy so I will cut them some slack on timing. The food was mediocre at best. One daughter loved her chicken fingers and wings. The other ordered the kids rib plate which had two of the smallest driest end... More

This restaurant is at the end of all the tourist souvenir shops so it's pretty central to the Stock Yards. Plenty of room here with a heated closed in verandah which is great in the winter months, we chose inside. Being from Australia we really liked the decor and vibe. Felt Texan. Meals were tasty and plentiful and resonable prices.... More

Riskey's downtown is a nice place to drop into for a good lunch. Half block down Main Street and across the street is the Sid Richardson Museum of Western Art. Makes a good cultural experience downtown with wonderful art and fine cuisine of the area.
