Set Current Location
Besides providing some of the best barbecue in town, Stubb's Bar-B-Q has a huge outdoor venue that can host rock concerts. A brainchild of Christopher B. Stubblefield, the original Stubb's Bar-B-Q was set up in Lubbock; when it shut its doors this Red River location kept up the Stubb tradition of providing delicious barbecued meat, chilled beer and rocking music. Family platters are also served here. Come early to get a bite to eat, then stay and watch the shows.
Franklin Barbecue is open only for lunch from 11a, till the time it is sold out, which is usually even before it opens. This is the reason you'll see a serpentine queue outside the restaurant right from 8a. However, the wait is well worth it because they serve some of the best barbecue delights that will have you craving for more. Absolutely try the pulled pork, ribs, sausages and brisket. They also have sandwiches, sides and desserts available, but it's for the chunky meat that patrons come here for.
For a mouthful of the real Texas, head down to The Salt Lick barbeque restaurant. The scenery and the rustic restaurant building all add to that perfect Southern flavor. Try the mammoth sized sandwiches or the family style meals (inclusive of pork ribs, brisket, sausage, potato salad, cole slaw, beans, pickles, onions and bread). Dig into the delicious smoky sausages or the moist briskets all made with special Salt Lick sauces. You have to leave place for the irresistible homemade desserts. It must be noted though that the restaurant is located in a dry precinct so you have to carry your own alcohol. Great barbeque, melt in the mouth desserts and a drink of your choice!
