Went to Mckenzies for lunch on 2-25-17, had the rib plate which was ok at best, and at $ 14.99 for 5 ribs and a spoon full of beans and potatoes salad seemed a little costly, you can buy a full rack of ribs at the store and cook them yourself for less than $15.00 ..wont be back

Thank Archie N
Management response:

It's disappointing you didn't feel you got your money's worth, Archie. While you're right that it'll always be cheaper to cook a meal up yourself, we like to think that the full experience, service, and atmosphere factor in. That said, your meal should absolutely be more than just okay, and it sounds like we didn't put our best foot forward.... More

Good service and I ordered a 2 meat plate with brisket and sausage, added some onion rings and Cole slaw. Pretty darn good - house made jalapeño flavored BBQ sauce was tasty Overall good stop and I would return. 2 meat plate with large drink and premium side cost $15

Thank NG B
Management response:

Glad to hear you liked both the brisket and the sausage. Of course, BBQ is nothing without the sides, so I'm thrilled that you ordered a good selection of them! Sounds like everything hit the spot, and we hope you'll come see us again soon. Best wishes, Darin, Owner More

The BBQ is top notch. The prices are very affordable for BBQ. I really like the ability to serve your own sides since you can choose the portion you want. The BBQ ribs are very good and cooked perfectly. The 2 meat lunch special is an awesome deal. They have Coca-Cola freestyle equipment to serve any type of drink you... More

Eshafer, there's no reason BBQ should be expensive, so I'm glad that you really liked the lunch deal. Of course, it's even better to hear that you thought everything was delicious, and we look forward to having you back again soon. Best wishes, Darin, Owner More

The special on Wednesdays is the hamburger. It is almost as thick as a meatloaf. You can dress it up at the condiment table with lettuce, tomatoes, pickles and onions. It also has ketchup, mustard and mayo. You get to choose one side and they always have pinto beans. Your drink is also included.

As we arrived in Texas for the winter, it was one of the dining out places we hit. Food is good and prices are not bad. Beans available with every meal. Service yourself sodas. Great carry out and order ahead.

I think McKenzie's has the best ribs around. The potato salad and desserts are wonderful also. The staff is always friendly. Of course the guys like the sausage and brisket the best. There is also the hamburgers, very large. The patties are 8 ozs each.

Glad you love the ribs, Donna! Of course, good BBQ always comes down to the sides, so I'm thrilled that those hit the spot as well. Hope to see you again real soon. All the best, Darin, Owner More

If you are looking for BBQ you can't go wrong with McKenzies whether you are in Conroe or Huntsville. Burgers are not bad either, but now that they serve breakfast too there is no reason to go anywhere else. PS: They will reserve space for groups and they cater.

The Wednesday burger special is hard to beat. Their burgers are the real thing, nothing frozen. Been a while since I have tried their barbeque, but a lot of the customers do eat that.

Best BBQ in surrounding area. Daily lunch specials except for one day and weekends. There is a hamburger part connected. There are two main dining rooms with another that is private. The smoked turkey basket speaks for itself. Nothing around to compare it to. This place really does not have any competition, but these folks don't act like it. It's... More
