Here’s what a few of our satisfied customers have to say about Choke Canyon Bar-B-Q:

“We had brisket, ribs and chicken.  Everything was excellent.  Such good flavor I had no need for BBQ sauce.  For sides we had the baked beans and coleslaw both of which were very good.  A definite winner!”
— Kelly B., Madison, SD

Resturant 01 “Awesome brisket! I stop here every time I happen to pass by on highway 281.  I am fan of their moist brisket, but their other meats are good too.  The BBQ sauce might be sweeter than I prefer, but it's still tasty.  The ribs, although definitely not fall off the bone type, have a very tasty rub on them that I enjoy without any sauce.  I like their condiment bar where you can get as much pickles, onions, pico de gallo as you want.  You can even ask them for a bigger styrofoam container if the little cups are not enough.  All in all, worth a stop if you happen to be driving by.”
— Roy R., El Paso, TX

“Wow! The best BBQ brisket I have ever (including mine) had.  My sister and I stopped to eat lunch before the long drive to Port A and were so pleasantly surprised.  It was quick and easy in and out.”
— Roxanne C., Dripping Springs, TX

this place sucks

Pros: most food tasted good, the music was good.

Cons: too expensive for the amount of food; it cost 5 people $80; we ordered two fish and shrimp specials, but no shrimp; when we asked for it, we got four shrimp so over cooked it was like chewing on rubber; the place was swarming with gnats and flies; the table was dirty; we had to wipe it off; the men's bathroom was filthy and the ladies was flooded; I would not recommend this place to anyone; finally, it was not crowded on Easter Sunday afternoon.

Have been to this location 5 times over the past 6 or 7 months. First three visits the food was great. Moist Brisket,Great tender ribs and tasty chicken. Fourth visit, the manager was having a family(personal) birthday party and seemed more concerned with that than her customers.The meat was dry and tough. When I called her to the table and showed her the meat(Dry)She said she had a new cutter and he did not cut it right. Gave them another chance this past Saturday when we took friends from out of town. Brisket was tough,dry,stringy and ribs were also dry and uneatable. The same manager was on duty and law and behold she was doing the cutting. Very disappointed as we had bragged to our friends how good the food would be. WILL NOT GO BACK........

Pros: First 3 Visits. Great moist meat. Did not know managers name but he was right on top of things.

Cons: Last 2 visits.Tough,dry, meats. Poor Management oversight.

I've been driving by this Bar-B-Q for the past 2 years waiting for it to open and when it did I was hoping for some knockout Bar-B-Q, but that didn't happen. I've been there about a half a dozen times and had mixed results.

Pros: Great beer selection, Sides are good and they passed my coleslaw test. Also the place is pretty up scale for a Bar-B-Q joint. and I thought the chicken was good, but not outstanding.

Cons: The problem I had was with the meat, although the brisket was passable, the ribs were dry and bland, both pork and babyback. To me it's all about the meat. Unfortunate because it was on my way home.
