Raymond's BBQ used to be THE BBQ joint in Decatur, Texas about 10 years ago. We found them again in Bridgeport. Totally worth the drive! Their brisket is solid, they make smoked baloney (oh yes, it's a thing! Try it). But the best thing by far is the BBQ stew. Oh man! Go there. Get it. You won't be sorry.

Went for the ribs as I've read they are supposed to be great. They weren't... They seemed like they were steamed to make them tender. I was disappointed in the meal.

The bbq is good but not great. The spicy sauce is very good and the beans are great. The awesome ladies who work there bring out fresh, hot rolls all the time and they are amazing. You get a good amount of food for the price.

Good bar-b-que is prevalent in Texas, but when traveling in small towns it can be hit or miss. Raymond's BarBQ is definitely a bit HIT. The portions on the regular plate are enough for a big guy's appetite and the dinner rolls are excellent. For dessert, skip the pies and cakes and simply ask for another hot roll and eat... More

This is one of my favorite places for BBQ, its cheap, its not fancy, and its fast. You may have a bit of a wait around lunch, just check the parking lot for white trucks, if its packed you might have to wait but even then its not long.

Went with family and expectations for good BBQ prompted by the locals was not met. In fact, I'm pretty sure the potato salad gave me food poisoning.

Nice little family type place. The smell is awesome as you walk in. Makes you hungry. There is a good variety of meats, sides and the hot rolls are to die for. You can smell the yeast in them. Banana Pudding and Apple Cobbler are great. I highly recommend this place.

Food is good. Service is good. Restaurant is CLEAN! Cleanliness in a BBQ joint is a wonderful thing. Restrooms are always immaculate and you can view entire food prep area. Most of the employees are older and care about how they perform their job. We like Raymond's.

Nothing like good BBQ. Food was fresh and hot. Rolls were delish. Kid friendly, I will return. Service was fast and friendly. Very accommodating diner.
