I was going down Highway 281 for the first time and out in the middle of nowhere was this delightful little shopping area. I stopped into Natty Flat's and it was a true gem. The atmosphere was great! I was going to be at the...More

Drove 35 miles to re-visit Natty Flats for lunch. She had small chopped sandwich, I had large sliced, mac salad, two teas. $18.56 seems a little high. Food was pretty good, but I like more "bark" on my brisket, and the mac salad was kinda...More

Stopped here on my way to Midland, TX for a BBQ sandwich - plenty of food, well prepared, excellent lunch! Also while you are there try the Cherry Cobbler heated with ice cream!

Flavorful sliced beef with delicious sides and atmosphere to match: rough-hewn lumber tables and benches, country store with nostalgic-type items but not too touristy. Great place to meet up with family or friends for lunch or dinner.

Stopped in during a road trip for a quick lunch. The Sausage sandwich was really, really good. Can't wait to go back and try the chopped or sliced. Peach Cobbler and banana pudding looked good. If we were in a hurry. Maybe next time.

If you're driving down Highway 281, you just gotta stop here. It is not only one of the most original "old-time" smoke houses in the Texas area, its barbecue food is excellent. I had the pulled pork and my brother had the beef brisket. We...More
