Stopped on the way up and thought it might be a quick bite, 'cause of all the cars. Boy, was I wrong. The bar-b-que has good flavor, but I've never been to a restaurant in my life that has drawn out the ordering and paying process more than this one. All the kids are working hard, but...they're kids. No manager over about 20 was sighted. Fried okra was supposed to be 5 or 10 minutes. It was 20 and that was only after I stopped the girl that was handing out the backorders and complained. It was obvious they'd lost my order. I won't be back. Been there done that with the line by the pits. 'Just not that big of a deal and certainly doesn't excuse aging while waiting to get your dang food.

Not a fan of the one in Keller, I’d rather eat at Colters, Dickies or Rudy’s.

They got a few good reviews on the food so they let the service go. Ron

Ate there once a long time ago, it was good but not that good. Ate at the one in Coppell and was disappointed.

I've only been to Coppell and The Colony... I enjoy it, it's definitely not for the price conscious and I do see how the BBQ purist wouldn't think much of it. I brought my two boys (now in College) once and almost had to take out a loan for the bill.

I had the same experience in Stepenville about six months ago. My rare ribeye took 45 minutes. Everybody else had finished their meal. One other guy never got his order. Service was terrible and when I finally got my steak it was not very good. I won't go back.

“drawn out the ordering and paying process“

Is the one South of I 20 better than the one in Mineral Wells? We tried it twice and it was below Dickies quality.

It was a novelty when it first opened. Haven't been back in years; my life has not been adversely impacted by infrequent visits.

ALL the "buy off the pit" BBQ houses are too restricted by the health department to be great anymore. All food is supposed to be kept in
pans" not direct on grates. Just isn't the same as the "old" days.

We usually stop thru there on our way to Austin or San Antonio coaching school because one of our other coaches loves that place...it was ok, but I wouldn't go out of my way to eat there

Eaten there twice at the Stephenville location, and thank goodness I did not pay. Way over priced for the quality of food and the service is just bad. The last attempt was plain bad,they brought the wrong sides after being told it would 5-10 minutes. Then it turned into 20-30 minutes for the sides. My nieces drum sticks were pink and bleeding in the along the bone and the young women attempted to explain it as smoke ring. One of the few times I felt bad for the brother in law, when bill arrived after the comedy of errors.

I had t tried the MW location.

The Natty Flat location is pretty good. Good desserts & such also.

Guess I am in the minority but I enjoy Hard 8. Maybe I am not a bbq purist but I do like meat and like what they offer.

Ate at the Stephenville location couple months ago and it was disappointing to say the least.

The Hard 8 in Roanoke is hard...on the stomach. Not good at all.

Just my .02,

When we decide on BBQ for dinner, we pass Roanoke and drive another 10 minutes or so to 407 BBQ. We were there Tuesday night and as always, most tasty!

Man, y'all are crazy. Best steak and Turkey I've ever had was at that location. You def don't go there if you're in a hurry though. Is it expensive, yes, but it's dang good unless it's really gone downhill in a year.

The quality of the food was fine. 'Just can't stand watching a restaurant, staffed completely by young people, all of them acting like they're in charge and everything falling apart. Sometimes it's amazing how much terrible service people will put up with.
