The service and the food was very good.. This seems to be a place the family likes to stop at everytime we are in Mineral Wells. Keep up the good work.

Mesquite pit is always good, good atmosphere and clean. Love the salads and the smoked catfish. My favorite is the avocado ranch dressing!

Good food reasonably priced. They have started an incentive program which gives you points for freebies. Good idea!

Enjoyed our meal at the mesquite Pit. We got the pick three. Brisket, ribs and sausage. All very well prepared and seasoned. Wait staff was veery attentive and positive. The baked potato was massive but the rest of the sides are lackluster to these highly seasoned meats. So if you're a carnivore you're in the right place. Id definitely go... More

I ordered the 3 meat meal. Comes with 2 sides. I had Ham, smoked sausage, and ribs with he sauce on the side. THE MEAT PORTIONS WERE HUGE! Smoked to perfection, table service was prompt and exacting. I LOVE the iced tea (unsweetened). I advise you to heed their #1 ranking and visit as soon as practical.

I had the brisket plate with fries & cowboy beans. I really enjoyed the cowboy beans, well seasoned. For desert I ate peach cobbler. It was warm but it would be perfect with ice cream. My friend had the sliced brisket sandwich with mashed potatoes. My friend suggested coming here since he has been here a few times. If in... More

We came here from TripAdvisor and was not disappointed. The menu is large and lots of appetizers but if you order the sausage and cheese be ready for crackers! The steaks were just good and the cheeseburger was great. Lots of leftovers but still had time for the banana pudding! It is a Texan themed place and is good for... More

There are not an abundance of fine dining options in Mineral Wells. Ok, there are none! However, this is probably the nicest restaurant in town and you will almost certainly find something for everyone here. The menu is large and diverse and the service was quite good. We had the ribeye, New York strip, and a cheeseburger. The steaks were... More

We went here with a large group (50) of people on a Thursday evening. The staff was ready for us, they were friendly and efficient. My wife and I shared a fried catfish meal and a fried shrimp meal. Both were great. Some of our friends had the ribeye steak and reported their meals as being very good as well.... More
