Products & Services

Stanley's is the oldest operating Mom & Pop BBQ Joint in Tyler, Texas. Serving up true, pit smoked BBQ for over 50 years. Come try our perfect brisket, baby back ribs, turkey, sausage, and even pulled pork. Stanley's offers some other selections such as fish tacos and even has vegetarian items. Catch a great touring band when the weather is nice (Live Music is Seasonal). Stanley's is only open for lunch and since we take pride to produce all our barbecue and sides fresh each day, we occasionally sell out due to heavy and unanticipated guest traffic.


Nick & Jen Pencis took over the business in 2006 after the death of founder JD Stanley left his family unable to continue the operation. Nick & Jen have kept the spirit of JD's recipes and methods alive, as well as adding their own flare to the joint. They have since been recognized by being named "ONE OF THE BEST BBQ JOINTS IN TEXAS" by Texas Monthly Magazine and finding their story published in David Gelin's book "BBQ Joints: Stories and Secret Recipes from the Barbecue Belt".
