The Branding Iron use to be one of my favorite BBQ places in town, but after the last few trips, it seems to be the middle of the pack BBQ place in town. I'm not comparing this place to the chain places but to the privately owned ones in town. I do like the way you order and how the... More

I was taken here for lunch while in Wichita Falls for business. The food was terrific. It is a go-through-the-line situation. Order your meat item, get your own sides and drink, and pay the man at the end - CASH ONLY. Seat yourself and enjoy excellent BBQ. It is bench/tables eating, rustic, and just what a good BBQ place should... More

My wife & I stopped at Branding Iron for a Saturday lunch while we were in Wichita Falls. Food is served & paid for cafeteria style, with a large staff & busy behind the serving counter. Prices are reasonable for the serving sizes. Interior dining area definitely shows its age. Branding Iron is no more than a basic smoked meats... More

Stopped to try some BBQ after a month of seafood. Hard to find this place. It was busy at lunch, cafeteria style. The pork shoulder was good, as was the beef. The sauce was good. The sides were cold and greasy. Won't go again.

I love BBQ!!!! Growing up in Texas bbq is a food group and this is a great place to eat! Remember to bring cash or checks cause they don't except credit cards. They do have an ATM though if you forget.

My wife and I have visited twice. First time was not that good , the ribs were excessively greasy. The sides were nothing to write home about . We decided , based on friends recommendations, to try it again. The ribs again were excessively greasy. Perhaps some folks like them like that , but not us. Nothing but cash accepted... More

Love coming here for lunch or dinner, it's cash or check, ATM on site inside dining room. Western decor, friendly faces, 42 years serving Wichita Falls, fall off the bone ribs, tender brisket, smoked ham, etc. They make their own sauce, sides, and hand tossed potato salad! ❤️

We've tried all the meats and they are all good. You get a lot of food for the money. The sides are great as well. Love the fried okra.

It's been awhile since I've eaten at this restaurant. I had the rib lunch platter to go. There was enough food to save the next day for a second lunch.

Found the Branding Iron in Wichita Falls and was able to park my big 50ft rig (tow and camper trailer) in the car park next to the rail track! As you enter you are confronted with the nest station with a dozen different unbelievably good meat choices - imagine: ribs, brisket, sausage, smoked turkey, ham, barbecue, chopped pork, sliced beef...
