My family and I love this place. There's 100 different stuffed animals inside for the kids to glare at and ask questions about. The staff is wonderful. The food is on point every time. It's priced very well. My son is gluten-free and there's always something for him to eat. He loves chop beef baked potato. My husband loves the... More

The last time I visited this well known Restaurant, I found the Brisket to be liked boiled meat and at $18 per pound to be very expensive. The Ribs were above average. If you like stuffed animal heads the the atmosphere is for you but I find it a little unnerving having so many Trophy Animal eyes looking while dining... More

Walking into Clem's I was taken aback by all of the nostalgia but most notably Mr. Mikeskas purchases over the years of the Grand Champion bulls at the Bell County Fair. I'm glancing around at large trophy animals hanging and Texana out the yingyang! I'm drooling in anticipation of some awesome Texas BBQ with all the fixin's and side out... More

My brisket as dry and very bland. The sausages were also very bland and the skin had no pop at all. Finally, my bill was on the table before I finished.

My family insist we go here for family funeral outtings. We jave had a lot of them lately. This food is very basic and bland, serving sliced white bread and sliced pickles. Get creative, you should have a signature bread and better than cheap slices pickles to to mention maybe real turkey breast instead of the baked foil process turkey... More

Food was good but service was slow. We were not on a schedule but if we had been it would have been worrisome.

We have eaten here about 3 times now, and have not been disappointed. The food and service have both been good. We'll be eating here frequently now.

I was in town for some business, so I'll just stopped on in for lunch. The interior is a tribute to some local guys taxidermy skills, there were probably 50 different stuffed animals looking down at you as you eat your food. I ordered the two meat plate with the tri-tip and the brisket, fried okra and pinto beans. The... More
