Well, it's not a big country, but I'd still eat here back in the states. Barbecue is spot on (and pizzas are amazing). The owner is from the same town as my dad, which is fun. Brunch is a fantastic value if you're drinking. No...More

Texas BBQ in suburban Bahrain ? The common factor must be an interest in burning meat beyond recognition. The performance by Meat Ball and Dolly Farton on the night was a standout and reminiscent of Dubbo RSL in 1977 (You had to be there to...More

Big Texas BBQ and Waffle House is the first original American Owned and American Operated Bar-B-Que Smokehouse in the Middle East. We welcome children and families to our home as we smoke US Certified Halal Angus Beef (CAB), Halal Chicken , pulled pork and baby back pork ribs at low temperatures for long times to ensure a flavor you will find nowhere else in the Middle East. Our steaks cannot be matched for the price and we will place the flavor and tenderness of our steaks against any location in Bahrain. Couple our meat with the large portions and outstanding flavors of our side dishes and our homemade desserts and we guarantee a great experience. 6 nights a week we feature live American music played by Rusty Golden, a two time Grammy nominated artist and Clarissa, a young up and coming talent with a golden voice. Come and see us and say hello to Bryan, Milly or MAJ Cox.
