Where to Find the Best BBQ in Comanche

Texas BBQ is nothing short of legendary, and when you’re in the Comanche area, you may be wondering where the hot spots are. Thankfully, you have the local experts here at Bayer Auto Group as your guide! Take a look at some of our favorite BBQ joints in and around Comanche, and prepare yourself for a meal you won’t soon forget.

Country Pickins Cafe

This local gem offers a cozy, inexpensive getaway from the bustle of your daily life. True Texas home cooking is on their menu every day but Sunday and Monday, with perfectly honed classics like BBQ beef and beans being called out as customer favorites.

Lemon’s Bar-B-Q

Just a short drive away in Brownwood is Lemon’s Bar-B-Q. We think their brisket, ribs, and onion rings are more than worth the trip, but it’s the hospitality offered by owners Keith and Wanda Lemons that will keep you coming back for more.

Hard Eight Barbeque

One of the only chain BBQ joints we’ll recommend, Hard Eight is located in nearby Stephenville. They’re family-owned, and you know what that means: family recipes! When faced with their sprawling menu, you might have a hard time choosing. Some Bayer Auto Group favorites? Brisket, pork ribs, and chicken kabobs come to mind immediately. If you can manage to fit in dessert, Hard Eight’s whiskey buttermilk pie is a heavenly experience you won’t soon forget.

Hardin’s BBQ

If you’re up for a 30-minute drive, Hardin’s BBQ in Gorman is a must-try spot. They’re only open on Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays from 10:30 am to 7:00 pm, so be sure to plan accordingly. On their menu, you’ll find unique takes on the classics, such as a brisket and sausage wrap. Stop by on your way home from work to see what “barbequetioners” Terry and Norm Hardin are cooking up!
