Appearances are deceiving. This shack cooks up some of the best BBQ that I have had in Texas, aka the world. The brisket had a nice distinctive flavor, on top of the traditional smoke. The pulled pork was nicely spiced and moist. Make the trip...More

Friday afternoon and no line, how did we get so lucky? The brisket was excellent with a great bark. The sausage was average but the ribs were very good. They only have two inside tables, so be prepared to picnic outside if they are busy.

The Blue Moon BBQ is a typical country BBQ joint in Texas! It is out in the middle of nowhere NE of Bryan TX and SE of Hearne TX. The place is quite small. There is ample parking. There are two tables for about 6...More

This is a great place for BBQ. Check days and hours of operation - they are not open every day. Our favorite item is the smoked turkey - very moist and flavorful. It is not unusual for items to sell out, so call in or...More

We took a road trip to find Blue Moon. It certainly is off the beaten path and it's a small place. Everyone was very friendly and we did enjoy our food. I had the brisket, ribs, and sausage. I would say the ribs and sausage...More

Picked up BBQ from here for a take home dinner, everything was delicious and the bacon wrapped frog legs are wonderful

A bit disappointed with the rack of beef ribs. Not much meat on these ribs and a surprisingly small rack compared to previous order. Another miss - the potato salad did not taste homemade. The BBQ sauce was the saving factor as it was quite...More

Our ribs are baby back pork ribs. I'm sorry they were not up to par when you visited. We did have a busy day when you were in. Thank you for willing to give us another chance. Toni Moon

If you live in their area, you know them. If not, you will have a devil of a time finding them. Not near Hearne, bout 20 miles east. To say they are unique is an understatement. To say they serve excellent food is an understatement....More
