I stumbled upon Tony's BBQ by attending a party in which Tony's was catered and I loved it! I had the brisket which was very good, however, their BBQ sauce was very good!

Excellent BBQ. Very reasonable price. Hole in the wall location. We are on a NM TX road trip and this is our best dining experience so far. No as in NO frills. Just good food. A beer would have been nice.... Free wifi a plus.

Ate here for the first time. Called ahead and ordered a feast for four--brisket, chicken, sausage and pork with chili, potato, and macaroni salad. All delicious. Ladies who helped me were very nice and helpful. Try this place for sure!
