I have been going to Lufkin BBQ for years and it is always good. I visited Alabama recently and that was terrible. Lufkin BBQ is consistently good with the quality of the food and service. The fried rolls with some honey make the meal even better.

This is a busy place in Lufkin. Stringer's has been here for years and still serves excellent food. The fried rolls are so tasty.

Stopped in for lunch looking for the fried bread. The service was quick and somewhat impatient. She quickly brought out the fried bread after we ordered. The bread was dense and somewhat grainy. It was pretty good with a shot of honey. The BBQ was served quickly. We had the ribs, brisket and pork. I can't say anything stood out... More

People in this restaurant is pleasant and give all the attention to offer you a nice moment. Ribs are tender and so delicious. Only the bbq sauce could be criticized...

When you walk into this place, you feel right at home. The atmosphere is very relaxed and the folks are so courteous. The menu is typical of BBQ but the specialty here is their rolls. You must try this at least one time, even if you're just "passing through".

Had a business lunch here and the food as always was very very good. The brisket is my favorite after having consumed several of the fried rolls which everyone likes. Fried pies are good too but I rarely have room for one.

We love visiting this BBQ place in Lufkin! We always get great food with great service! They serve good size portions for the most part, too. I just wish the prices were better.

I grew up eating this bbq and it's great! But I love and miss their fried rolls the most. I live in Austin TX now and we have some mighty fine bbq, but NOBODY can beat the fried rolls from Lufkin BBQ. The taste is unique to them, and I haven't been able to find them anywhere else in TX.... More

Darn good barbecue, if you ask me. I like the chopped beef, which comes with the sauce already added. Get the plate and they throw in beans and mashed potatoes. Oh, and yes, everyone loves the fried dough balls. They're good. If you're in a hurry they have drive-thru service. I prefer to come in and sit, however, as the... More

Thank you so much for your review! We are glad to know you like our chipped beef that's only made with smoked brisket and sauce (no fillers). Hope to see you soon! More

I went hoping to get a good cup of homemade chicken noodle soup...what I got was a lukewarm bowl of Campbell's chicken noodle soup...straight from the can for a whopping $4.00. Not impressed.

Wow, we have had two comments just this week about the chicken noodle soup. We hope it is not being advertised to try our soup. We offer it as an alternative to anyone who may wish to eat out with loved ones, but may not be able to eat the spicy BBQ. I'm very sorry you were disappointed. More
