The service was fast polite and accurate. The food was very good and the portions were very generous. The price was better than expected and they give a 10% discount when you present your room key.

Been here a few times when in the area on business. Nothing to complain about but nothing special. Good food and a few good beer options. I recommend trying it

This is a locally owned award winning baroque joint in a great location. I had the fresh trout. It was so good. The blooming onion was cooked perfectly. The spot was packed but the staff was friendly and attentive. There was only one little glitch....More

We arrived in Elizabethtown kind of late. The doors were locked but a manager-type person was standing there and let us in. Staff was wonderful, food was good. Appreciated the service for such a late hour!

We were seated and served quickly but the standard of the food and the follow up service left a lot to be desired. My spouse ordered the fried catfish with Seasoned Green Beans and Coleslaw. The fish was not all that tasty. The beans were...More

We stopped by for drinks after dinner. The service was good and the draft beer selection was good. We watched baseball and talked to a few locals. The place was very clean.

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!
