I have had the pleasure of eating BarBQ all over the country, and had the best right here in Texas. But Branding Iron is soooo NOT IT. The brisket is dry, bland and gross. The sides were old, boring, and bland also. The sauces they...More

This old BBQ establishment has been around forever and I like everything about it. All the meats are fantastic, though I usually get chopped beef or brisket--and you can get burnt ends! I love the sides...french fries, pea salad, etc., and desserts. I also think...More

We were on business last week and a long time local friend took us to the Branding Iron. The brisket was as good as any that I have ever had. It was melt in your mouth tender, flavorful, and trimmed to perfection.

Had the bbq pork. The potato salad and the okra was the very best. Hole in the wall restaurant downtown. A local establishment. Good food. Would recommend.

This is the premier restaurant in Wichita Falls for barbeque and all the fixings. It is always well attended at lunch and dinner times. A staple in Wichita Falls for home folk and visitors for decades.

We blew by “Rafter J’s” in Iowa Park because it appeared closed on Mondays. We stopped at the Wichita Falls tourist information center. The lady suggested a local BBQ favorite and we plugged the address into the GPS. Arrived long after the normal lunch hour...More
