Pody's BBQ

Reviewed By Tim W - Cresson, Texas

Stopped at Pody's while passing through Pecos and arrived just before they opened for business. There was already a line at the door, helping lead us to believe that the Texas Monthly Magazine classification of their BBQ among the best in Texas. Boy, we were not disappointed! Everyone in our group of three tried the pulled pork sandwich. In a word: amazing! You could have cut the meat with a spoon and the flavor is smoky, rich, and heavenly. Will plan to make this a stop on trips west in the future!

Dairy Queen

Reviewed By MaryEllenM27 - Kalispell, Montana

After a mediocre dinner elsewhere in town, we decided to stop and have "good old, reliable Dairy Queen" for dessert. You know what to expect, and it did not disappoint. Great staff and clean tables.

Other families were enjoying burgers and fries and chips and dip. We wish we had just gone to DQ for dinner to begin with.

Eagle Doughnuts

I stopped by every morning when I was in Pecos, Texas and enjoyed every time. Good quality and very friendly people. I recommend this if you have a "need" for a good quality donut.

Alfredo's Restaurant

Reviewed By YourMomLovesToast - Millerton, Pennsylvania

One of the best restaurants in Pecos, must be for the food as service is lacking. Not sure if they need to hire more people or what. Food was pretty good. Prices aren't bad.

Happy Dragon

Reviewed By crusadercc - Georgetown, Texas

This place - oddly located across from the hotel check-in desk - was packed at 8pm on weeknight. And packed with oil field workers...as one might expect in Pecos. Literally every table to taken. Thankfully my to-go order was ready in 10 minutes. Not somewhere I would normally frequent, but it worked for what we needed as we passed through the area.

The Tamales (Red) (original) ARE THE BEST! You have never had a tamales like the ones sold here, the only negative word I have is the prices! If they go up anymore people will not be able to afford them!

Bush's Chicken

Reviewed By Fred D - Pecos, Texas, United States

If you like chicken, this is the place. Chicken is tasty, but not heavily spiced. Veggies are excellent. Rolls are also very good. For those who like them, they also offer chicken livers and gizzards. Service is quick and the prices are reasonable. Dining room is clean and spacious. Bush's is a great fast-food alternative!

Old Mill Restaurant

Reviewed By SueFromWinnipeg - Winnipeg, Canada

Did a lunch at this spot and found it average-ish with so-so service and manageable food.

Got home from our trip to Texas and found out that an extra $5.00 has been tacked on our Visa charge.

Not sure what this is about and there will be a correction made. Just wanted to inform you to watch out for this happening to you at the Old Mill Restaurant

Alpine Lodge Restaurant

Reviewed By cww2 - Tucson, Arizona

After a long day on the road, my wife and I often look for a quality restaurant close to the motel. The Alpine Lodge restaurant is located on the same property as the wonderful Best Western Swiss Chalet motel and within walking distance. The place was clean and the service prompt although after our order was complete, the waitresses spent most of their time hovered over their cell phones. The salad bar was expansive, fresh and tasty. The hamburger specials were OK but the French fries were reheated and limp. The menu is broad and maybe another choice would have been better.
Overall, our meal was satisfactory but not salutary.
