“best ribs in town”

Rockin' Q Smokehouse
Ranked #144 of 242 Restaurants in Odessa
Restaurant details
Reviewed 31 October 2016

Dickys has nothing on Rockin Q. Voted the best in the permian basic and it's hard to disagree. This restaurant feels Texas authentic and doesn't have that 'formulaic feel' that other bbq chains in the area have. Not extremely cheap eats but that's what you should expect for quality plates of meat any time of day. I'm a rib fiend and these are by far the best Odessa has to offer. Come on Sunday to get free ice cream too! My favorite part is the classic rock they play all day every day to make it a nice and relaxing environment. Save yourself the trouble deciding which bbq joint to hit in Odessa and just come here!

Great place to stop in for a quick bite. All items are reasonably priced. They even have kool-aid freshly made daily. I would suggest there brisket burrito with queso great fast lunch.

Pork ribs were plentiful. They were not any "fall off the bone" ribs, but had a great flavor. Looks like it might be a awesome place to go back in the evening, especially when they have the all you can eat ribs. I would possibly go back when I am in the area. I would give it a 6 out of 10.

Went with the family, all you can eat rib night. Ordered, sat down, got the condiments and sauce. Order up!
Where was the potato salad. About the size of a golf ball. Had good flavor, just very small portion compared to previous visits. Coleslaw was runny and not too much on the flavor side.
Now the ribs. Fat, a lot of fat. And the ribs I did consume must have been the previous days leftovers. Dry, very tough and just not a very great experience.
Something has happened to this place who always served a decent and tasty meal.
Management needs to clean house, get back to basics.

While there are a lot of restaurants in Odessa that serve BBQ in some form or fashion in Odessa, and Rockin' Q does a great job with theirs. I had the sliced beef and smoked sausage combo while my buddy had the ribs, and both of us commented on how good the food was. Portions were not too large and everything was done right. The staff was friendly, the restaurant was very clean and the prices were reasonable. We'll definitely be back again the next time we're in town.
