Read our delectable review on Heavy’s Barbecue Below
I am not sure where the name came from but they are heavy on the servings. The menu is pretty basic, but the smell of barbecue lingers down the block and is enough to draw in a crowd. Some say it’s the best BBQ in Hondo. Choices are either a sandwich or a plate with beef, sausage, turkey, chicken, or pork ribs that are barbecued fresh daily by the entrance. Prices for sandwiches start at $4.75, and plates go up to $11.50. You may also buy meat by the pound. There’s 2 specials on the menu, Frito pie, or the Heavy D which consists of chunks of beef and sliced sausage, toped with beans and sauce. Family Packs are available to serve either three or six people, at $19.50, and $37.50 respectively. They include your meat, beans, potato salad, pickles and onions, and bread.
The restaurant looks somewhat like a cabin in the woods, with numerous taxidermy mounts on the wall, and picnic tables that match the hardwood floors, which match the wood walls. There is a small covered porch if you prefer to eat outside near the barbecue. Everything smells wonderful so it’s hard to choose. If you’re a big meat eater this is the place to be! Ask what their special homemade dessert is for the day. Order at the counter and buy some by the pound to take home. You’ll be glad you did! Located at 1301 19th St. centrally on Highway 90 W.
