Where to Find the Best BBQ in Odessa

Good barbecue is abundant throughout the state of Texas, and those fortunate enough to live in Odessa apartments enjoy easy access to some of the region's best BBQ joints. For a finger-licking good time, be sure to check out one of these five amazing BBQ joints:

The Tastiest BBQ in Odessa

  • Smokey's West Texas BBQ. Smokey's offers a delectable barbecue sauce with just the right amount of smoky flavor. Most visitors favor the restaurant's delicious brisket, but the baked beans and potato salad are also worth ordering.
  • True Texas BBQ. An accurately named restaurant, True Texas BBQ delivers the exact types of barbecue dishes you would expect to be served in the great state of Texas. The mouthwatering dishes at True Texas BBQ are smoked up to fourteen hours before served, giving them a true smoky flavor that cannot be matched. The acclaimed barbecue joint is conveniently placed within several H-E-B stores in the Odessa area.
  • The Rose Bar B Q. A true hole in the wall, The Rose Bar B Q may not be the most conveniently located BBQ restaurant in the Odessa region -- but it certainly has one of the best menus. No trip to this charming joint is complete without a taste of the acclaimed Cowboy Pie. Similar to Frito pie, this amazing creation replaces ground beef with brisket. Other great menu items include ribs, burgers and potato salad.
  • Hercules. Sit-down barbecue restaurants are great, but when you're on the go, there's nothing better than the pulled pork and jalapeño poppers served at the Hercules food truck. Family owned and operated, Hercules emphasizes quick and friendly service. In addition to stopping along many busy streets in Odessa, the food truck offers private catering services.
  • Bar-B-Q Barn. Juicy brisket, ribs and sausage are all available at Bar-B-Q Barn. The family-friendly restaurant offers an array of affordable family packs, which allow large groups to enjoy delicious BBQ on the cheap.
Nothing says Texas quite like a rack of barbecue ribs. At Midland Odessa, we are happy to put you within easy reach of Odessa's most prized BBQ joints. Get in touch today to learn more about our apartments and the best of Odessa living.
