The Texas BBQ smoke in the air literally pulls you into the ranch house. Two lines of customers move steadily past grills full of BBQ choices. Arrived at 11:30 am to beat the crowd but many others think the same. Great place for group lunches. The porch has many long tables for groups.

First time there, will be a repeat customer when I'm in Dallas. High quality, slow roasted meat and the line, while long, didn't take more than 20 minutes to get through. I was more than a little disappointed by the length of the line but, it moved quickly enough so progress was made. The meat was good, pulled pork was... More

Easily one of the best BBQ experiences I've had, especially loved the bourbon-based BBQ sauce. The food was great and plenty, the live music was awesome, and I'm not a country music fan.

This place is great! Lots of variety, meat sold by 1/4 pound, then you pick you sides. So easy to eat way too much. Everything is great.

The experience starts when you walk in the door and begin the wonderful journey past the BBQ pits. They have a good selection of meats, sides and desserts. The brisket was tender and delicious. Their BBQ sauce sweet and tangy. This is a good family place and the staff was very friendly.

This was our first Texas BBQ experience. We had a long lay-over at DFW so family took us to the Hard Eight for lunch. It was quite an experience. For us this is a unique way to order the food. We were there early and it was good we did. The place filled up very quickly and had a line-up... More

If you like Bar-B-Q this the place. Great atmosphere and congenial staff. It is ALL good, but my favorite is the brisket and pork chop. Your cardiologist may not approve but when they dunk the chop in a big bucket of drawn butter,AWESOME. Never had a bad experience there.

Although, I live 2 miles from it, I don't really like it. You have butcher paper for a plate and there aren't a lot of sides to chose from. The parking lot is always full, so I guess some people like it, but not me. I'd rather go to Sonny Bryan's or Dickeys.
