We totally enjoyed our visit to Jerry Mikeska's restaurant. Jerry is in his 90s and was there meeting his customers. He is a delightful gentleman whose life revolves around his restaurant. This is our first time at Jerry's but not the first time at a Mikeska Brothers' restaurant. Jerry's does not disappoint. I don't believe the negative reports. We have... More

It did taste good. But only had 3.5 pieces that were less than 3" long. Had to open up bun to see the meat. Don't know if we ordered wrong since it was our first time and went through the drive thru. Little bit disappointed

I ate here once. We couldn't go back because there are so many dead trophy animal heads and smaller full bodied dead fowls lining the wall of the room...they just stare at you while you are eating. On the other side, Mr. Mikeska makes a really good brisket. I don't recall if there is a drive-thru. We ate there in... More

Traveling from Bastrop to Sugar Land I was feeling hungry and Google showed Mikeska's without having to U-turn and go back to Columbus. I thought a barbeque sandwich would hit the spot. The first thing I noticed when I left my car was that there wasn't a smokey cooking meat smell in the air. That should have been my first... More

My husband and I were traveling back to Austin Texas from New Orleans. We stopped for a quick break from the road and met the nicest folks around. Food was great. The brisket sandwiches and ribs which were cooked to perfection. The potato salad was "almost" as good as my Grandmothers. Mr. Mikeska came out to speak to us as... More

This was my second stop in the last two years traveling thru here. First time I said I won't be back...well maybe they had a bad day...nooooo. It's just bad all the Time. This is susposed to be BBQ. It's more like warmed up spam. I don't see how they stay in business. The only thing good was the sliced... More

I have been eating at mikeskas bbq for many years but only occasionally as it is out of my way. Every time I do eat there it is consistantly good and the prices are very reasonable. Some people are blown away by all the stuffed animals but I enjoy looking at them.

Great place to eat between Houston and San Antonio. I have seen MIkeska's from the highway for years and finally got around to stopping. Glad I did. Great sausage. Good brisket. Tender ribs, but a little bland. Chicken was good too. Lille the ribs, a little under-seasoned. But that may just be a personal preference. Comfortable area to sit and... More

Stopped for some Texas BBQ. It did not disappointe. Wife had brisket sandwich and I da ribs. The meat was falling off the bone lite sauce did the meat justice. Cool atmosphere in hunting motif. Kids seemed to enjoy lots a room. Steady business. 5 stars.

Menu was very large with very good selection of meals. Place was very clean and well lit. Food was very good and portions good. Price was considered a little bit high, but worth the meal.
