My wife and I joined family members for dinner at the Country Tavern Barbecue. I was amazed that this restaurant has been in operation many decades, and I have never heard of it. Let me make this simple for the readers. If you like Barbecue beef ribs, you must put this place on your bucket list. Never in my life... More

The food was great but it is on the high side for price on Barbecue. The staff is very friendly and the food came out in a reasonable amount of time.

This BBQ place is quite famous, and they know it. To me, their BBQ is good, but average or only slightly above. However their following is legendary around Kilgore. Truly, people from far away love this place, and make it a "must" every time they get near Kilgore. The real downside is their prices - they KNOW they're famous. Too,... More

Don't miss these ribs and enjoy the brisket with all the fixin's to go along with them. This award winning Texas eatery has meat that falls off its ribs, superb potato casserole, potato salad, and sauce. All there rest is gravy! Come and get it!

I called ahead to gets ribs to go. Little did I know that they would be swamped on a Saturday afternoon. The ribs and pecan cobbler were both wonderful. I got frustrated when I had to wait approximately 15 minutes for my call in order. The staff was very nice and we're working their butts off.

Hotel staff recommended this place, a bit out of town, but easy to find. Brisket, ribs, turkey were all very tasty. Dessert was called pecan cobbler, but it was pie in a bowl. Still good! Nothing fancy at all, but good barbecue.

11 of us agreed. Country Tavern worth a visit. Great atmosphere, good selection of beer on tap, and good ribs. Simple menu and good food. Melt in your mouth ribs. Kids had a great time dancing to juke box music and feasting on smoked turkey.
