Everything is yummy here, and there's always plenty of space despite being popular. The ribs are great, but my favorite is the baked beans.

The BBQ is the best I've tasted in the south. The owner and management are great people and the staff was friendly and efficient. Great value on their daily specials.

Hands down best BBQ in the Cenla area. They have something for everyone that is BBQ. There sauce is amazing. Sometimes I just go for the smells, but leave with a stomach full! The choped baker is to die for!

Matt2129, we often think that we should bottle the "Outlaw's Smell", it would make a great Father's Day gift! Thanks for taking time to give us such a stellar review.

Outlaws has a great menu, featuring BBQ of all meats as well as salads and burgers, as well as a loaded potato which is one of my favorites! The atmosphere is friendly and casual! Great place to eat!

RobEllenS, thanks for reminding folks that we have two great locations--Alexandria and Pineville. You make us sound like the Picadilly of BBQ joints, which is a great comparison, because you're right, we've got something for everyone.
