We stop once a year when in the area. We love the pulled pork. Also we love the warm potato salad. The BBQ freezes well so we take a supply with us. It's also a great place to look at the other stores

The food was tasty, we had the jalapeno sausage sandwich, green beans, and beans. The outdoor area was a great place to let our kiddo wander with a little wooden bridge and farm equipment to see. Out houses were clean and cute. Blue bell ice cream and candy shop sweets to buy. Fun stop!

We have stopped at Natty Flat Smoke House several times and it just keeps getting better! The old west atmosphere is great but the food and fried pies make it even better. The Ham sandwich with potato salad and a buttermilk pie for dessert makes this place....OFF THE CHARTS! Highly recommend it to anyone. They only make the fried pies... More

We were recommended to go here by one of the locals for the "chicken fried steak" - a Texan delicacy apparently. Well it was delicious, and the waitress was so helpful when she found out we were on our honeymoon from England she came over with a list of local places to visit. The diner itself is very Texan, with... More

It is a rare occasion that I ever eat BBQ that I haven't cooked as like all other Texas guys, each of us think our BBQ is best. After a day of fishing, my son suggested this place as he'd been there once before. Natty Flats is about 50 miles west of Fort Worth and south of I-20 a few... More

Take the exit 386 off of I-20 and head 5 miles south. The BBQ is very good with interesting sides. The staff is very friendly and the interior quaint. Different sauces, beef jerky and pickled items are available for purchase. Definitely worth the drive.

Good BBQ ribs and brisket. Quick service and clean friendly atmosphere . New winery tasting room on the lot. Great destination for a quick date with your wife. Magnificent furniture at the store that started it all.

This restaurant is one of the coolest, most unique places I have ever visited. The rustic Natty Flat Smokehouse looks like a weathered-wood exterior with a handcrafted interior that that is unbelievable and I cannot begin to describe the intricacies of craftsmanship that it took to build this place. On the same property is the Texas Hill Country Furniture shop... More

We really enjoyed our time here. Not only do they have great barbque, but they also sell all kinds of homemade salsa and jam. If you can't find it here, you don't need it! My favorite jam is the Gala Apple Jame and I would drive out there just for it. (Since everybody else wrote about the food, I thought... More
