Atmosphere was nice, menu prices were a little more than expected. Ordered the rainbow trout, it was excellent. However less than impressed with the sides. The staff was wonderful. Probably won't be a return customer

Looking this place up online I was intrigued by all the awards won and mention of being on the Food Network. After my experience there I am less than impressed. I rarely ever give any place I've been a bad review, but after trying really...More

Stay often at the La Quinta Inn next door, and decided to try this place out, as it was a quick walk across the parking lot. First off, the wait staff was very friendly and attentive, without being overbearing. But my food experience was just...More

WE have visited the Texas Outlaw Barbecue several times and each time is has been excellent. Their steaks are the best no doubt and their burgers are probably the best found anywhere. We have had almost everything on the menu and have never been disappointed....More

Welcome to Texas Outlaw BBQ, judged America's GREATEST RIBS and Barbecue all over the nation. Our restaurant in Elizabethtown, KY is a reflection of our storied National Competition BBQ Cooking Team, which has been competing all over North America for decades winning over 300 national awards to date. Each year, we serve up well over a quarter-million pounds of BBQ from coast-to-coast. We started in Houston, TX and our restaurant has been operating in Elizabethtown, KY for the past 15 years. We use our same seasoning and slow-smoking style that has given us the award-winning flavors you are about to experience in our award-winning ribs, beef brisket, pulled pork, turkey and chicken. We are REAL TEXAS BBQ with the authentic pink smoke ring in the meat created by our spices and 6-13 hours smoking our meats low-and-slow. The smoke ring means you're getting real hickory wood smoked BBQ, not some white, mushy, boiled, broiled or baked meat. We didn't earn the title of GREATEST RIBS IN AMERICA or LEGENDS OF BBQ by serving anything but quality meat, spiced and slow-smoked in the best made smokers in the world. You can be assured you will never eat pre-cooked, frozen or microwaved meat at TEXAS OUTLAW BBQ. Our smokers operate 24 hours/day, around the clock and if we don't sell it tonight we throw it away tonight. So as my grandmother always said, "The proofs in the pudding". So sit back, relax and enjoy your meal. We hope to see you soon!
