Went to the Ole Smoke House in Madrid... What horrible service 45 minutes without even an over of drinks. With a mostly empty restaurant... Only to have the waitress try to blame the kitchen.... Highly disappointing, save your gas money not worth the trip...

Country place in the far north. Food was great. A popular "watering hole" in the area. We were there on a quiet night, but still plenty of activity around. The Barbeque was excellent.

Have tried a lot of smoked meat in Texas over the past years, this meat is VERY mild in comparison. I tried a three meat combo - chicken, ribs, pulled pork with home cut fries and beans. The chicken not sure if it was smoked at all, pulled pork as I said very mild smoke taste got more from the sauce - but I liked it, the ribs very tender with meat falling off the bones - next time I will order dry to see how much smoke flavour.

We got there on a Friday rainy evening around 6 had to wait about 30 minutes so would suggest you get reservations if you go. there was a young girl who started to sing around 7 although she had an excellent voice I do not believe it added to the evening. I did find the portions excellent and very reasonable.

Would I try it again yes.

This place was recommended to me quite some time ago by the woman working at the motel where I was staying and I finally got around to checking it out. The interior is fabulously decorated in an old western style.......with life sized mannequins who look ready to draw their gun at the first sign of trouble. So cute. For dinner I had the best pulled pork and sweet potato French fries. so yummy. The staff is very friendly and willing to accommodate their customers requests. There is a bar but it doesn't make parents feel uncomfortable bringing their children. It is in a different section and is equally decorated. I would like to return in better weather....they have an outside patio and a pavilion and I cant wait to dine there in the fresh air......I am sure it will be fantastic!!!!
