5 Great BBQ Joints You’ll Love In Amarillo

Michael Brake/ThinkStock

If you’re like me, nothings beats some great BBQ. Ain’t nothing like your old lady getting mad after you eat some messy ribs and end up with BBQ sauce all over your brand new shirt.

Everyone knows Rudy’s BBQ and Famous Dave’s because they are chain restaurants, but not many people know about some of the smaller “Hole In The Wall” BBQ joints that will knock your socks off.

1. Wesley’s Bean Pot

6406 River Rd, Amarillo, TX 79108

This place is one of the most overlooked BBQ joints in town. It’s out on the north side, but it’s totally worth the trip. The ribs fall right off the bone and I recommend the brisket smothered baked potato cover in hots.

2. Henk’s BBQ

1508 S Grand St, Amarillo, Texas 79104

Growing up as a kid I remember when my brothers and I would stay at our grandparents house, at least once a week we would have lunch at this local BBQ powerhouse. When you walked out of the place you had the smell of BBQ on you for the rest of the day.

3. Doug’s Hickory Pit

3313 Georgia St S, Amarillo, TX 79109

I bet you’ve driven by this place a thousand times and might have never even noticed it. It’s located behind the old blockbuster on Georgia, and has one of the best chop brisket sandwiches you can find. The thing I love about this place is their BBQ sauce, homemade and super tangy.

4. Tyler’s BBQ

2014 Paramount Blvd, Amarillo, TX 79109

This BBQ joint has one of the best reputations for BBQ yet not many people have tried it yet. You need to change this! This place is freaking awesome and has even been featured in multiple magazines. If you follow them on Facebook you will know they sell out of BBQ everyday.

5. Stretch’s BBQ Barn

3319 Bell St, Amarillo, TX 79106

Homemade potato salad, fresh cooked beans, ribs and ham and thick Texas toast make this place one of my favorites. They’ve also got some really great BBQ sauce as well and huge portions.
