On a recent Saturday night after church, I went over to Bartley's BBQ with my group, and it was my first time there. The decor was hardly anything special, but the food was surprisingly fantastic! I had a sliced brisket sandwich and a smoked sausage sandwich. Both were very tasty. They had delicious pinto beans -- really good Texas-style flavor. I even got to have a pork rib handed to me by one of my cohorts who couldn't finish -- good smoked taste. Don't be fooled by the hole-in-the-wall decor; just give the place a try -- Grapevine doesn't have many barbecue places. I'll be back at Bartley's soon.
Pros: Great smoked meats, good sides, location, parking, no waiting
Cons: Decor lacks
