This place uses sirloin instead of the standard cut of brisket. The meat is dry, very dry and tasteless. The food was bland and nothing to go back for again. There are a lot better BBQ places in Temple. Fat Boys is the best.

Got there fairly early and our reserved table was already set up. The waitress was fantastic and took excellent care of us. The Chicken fried steak was very well prepared and delicious. It was very tender. The Tumbleweeds, like onion rings, were great.

We were very disappointed. Will not go back again. Food wasn't that great. Service was okay. Others we know either like it or don't.

My husband and I look for restaurants that offer healthy options. Mikeska’s BBQ has so many grilled meats and veggies. I like the grilled catfish, talipia, salmon, pork chops, steaks, and chicken. One of the new waitresses didn’t even know they offered grilled catfish. That...More
