Barbecue in Texas is almost a religion, and one West Texas BBQ restaurant has received the #1 status for ribs in the whole state and it is only 90 minutes from Midland/Odessa. ROAD TRIP!!!

According to Mashed, they ranked one Pecos BBQ restaurant as the best place in the state to get ribs.

Where you ask? Well, that would be Pody's BBQ.

Located at the corner of 14th St. and Hwy 285 (Cedar St.) in Pecos, these fall-off-the-bone ribs are definitely worth the short drive to Pecos to get out and try.

Not only has Mashed ranked them #1, but so has MSN.

This means if you are a lover of great ribs, then you need to go and check this restaurant out.

Don't plan a weekend trip to Pecos because they are unfortunately closed on the weekends and Mondays but are open for lunch Tuesday through Friday from 11 am - 2 pm.

But ribs are not all they have, they do have all the standard BBQ cuts and dishes including sides like potato salad, coleslaw, pickles, and red beans.

They also feature the Pecos Giant Spud which is a potato filled to overflowing with meat so you can get your meat and potatoes all in one.

So when you have some time off and can make a trip during the week, your best bet is to go to Pody's BBQ in Pecos for the best in-the-state, fall-off-the-bone ribs you can get.

We don't have enough hyphens to describe the BBQ so make your way to Pecos as soon as you can to enjoy the best BBQ.
