L2 Texas BBQ
There are many varieties of BBQ. A few of the best known are: Carolinas, Kansas City, Memphis and of course Texas.
Texas BBQ differs by region
East Texas- the meat is slowly cooked typically over hickory wood and is marinated in a sweet tomato-based sauce
Central Texas- the meat is rubbed with salt and black pepper and sometimes other spices and then cooked over indirect heat using pecan, oak or mesquite wood. Sauce is usually not necessary but it can be served on the side to complement the meat.
South Texas- The meat is marinated in thick molasses-like sauces
West Texas- the meat is cooked over direct heat from mesquite wood
L2 Texas BBQ is a mash-up of all the Texas styles to create our own unique favor.
For those a little less hungry we also have sandwiches and salads.
Come taste our low and slow BBQ. You will not leave hungry. Your taste buds will thank you

Amazing food and staff. Best smoke flavor, didn’t even need to be sauced. Can’t wait to go back.
We are pleased you enjoyed our food. We also can't wait for your return.
Wanted to try something new. The menu is what caught our attention. We ordered the fried pickles (yum) and Fried rib appetizer but they were super dry. Tasted old and flash fried as well. We also ordered the Houston, Dallas and Austin sandwiches, the Corpus Cristi burger and a 3 meat plate. The sandwiches were pretty tasty but the burger tasted like the lipton onion pack and kinda like a meatloaf. It was also extremely greasy. Didn’t taste grilled. It wasn’t my preference. My hubby liked his meat platter as well with the exception of wishing the jalapeño cheddar sausage had some type of spicy to it. The sides were mediocre. I miss my Rudy’s in Alb. NM. They had the best sides. The chicken tenders kids meal my daughter had tasted like the oil needed to be changed. She couldn’t eat it. The restaurant was nicely spaced and not too busy. The service was good. We ordered one of the sandwiches without onion and it came out anyways because it was re-entered as a separate sandwich. Lol We got the one with onions for free though I guess.
The food was delicious, we had the family platter(Brisket,pulled pork,smoked chicken,fried ribs,catfish nuggets and smoked sausage)mac&cheese,coleslaw and tater tots we picked as our sides..the staff was great from the minute we walked in,our server Charlie went above and beyond to make sure we had everything we needed,definitely going back.
We appreciate your kind words. We strive to make every person feel like family. Glad you enjoyed the family platter. We will let Charlie know you liked her service.
I’m a BBQ snob. I’ve lived in KC most of my life and lived in North Carolina and Texas. Great BBQ at the restaurant and super fast service.
We appreciate your comments. We strive to serve great food at reasonable prices along with friendly service. Hope to see you again soon
Amazing food service by the super friendly Dariann made my son’s birthday dinner a great success.
Our order was delayed. One person got their meal and everyone else was 10-15 minutes later
We apologize for the delay. If you provide specific details on what you ordered we can do a deeper dive to determine exactly what happened. In general our policy is to bring the food out as soon as it is ready. We do not use heat lamps. Different foods require different preparation times. Slicing the brisket is fast; frying the catfish takes longer. Hope to see you again.
Nothing stood out.
There were three of us dining. We all ordered the catfish fillet. One of them had an off taste to it, a chemical flavor. The coleslaw was also not as good as past visits.
Still no liquor license so no beer available. BBQ places need to have beer.
Food was good, service was excellent, price was decent
The brisket was fantastic, the service was great and prices were fair. Only thing missing was cheesy grits which Larry the executive chef said he would take under advisement.
Overall, great dining experience.
Great food. Even better service. Will definitely return.
Very good and tender ribs. Meaty too! Delicious brisk it and jalapeño, cheddar sausage. Good sides too.
Would definitely visit again. Our server was very engaging.
Excellent service, excellent food, great size portions, good atmosphere.
Once it receives its liquor license the overall rating will be fantastic!
For a place that wasn't very busy the service was super slow. We had to chase down the waiter for refills....never came back to check if we needed any. Forgot items we ordered and asking for a box and the check was near impossible. The food is amazing but the service will have me not coming back with friends anytime soon.
I apologize for the service. The level of service you experienced is unacceptable. We will retain our staff to provide responsive customer service. We hope you will give us a second chance. We appreciate that you recognize that our food rates a 5.
The service was exceptional. The catfish nuggets were excellent and cooked to order. Everything else was pretty terrible. The ribs cold and very little taste. The baked beans were very cold and no taste. The Ice-T was wonderful. It’s a glorified fast food type restaurant.
Tried it once I doubt we will go back.
Glad you liked our catfish nuggets and Ice-T. Sorry several items were cold. We are reviewing our processes to try to prevent this from happening again. If you find fault with any of our items, please let us know during your meal so we can make it right. We hope you will give us a second chance. Thanks
The food was great! Our server was very attentive and was willing to go out of his way to help us make decisions, even provided us samples of meat and sauces! We will definitely go back!
Great place for a family lunch. The BBQ is absolutely delicious! Wonderful service too! The portions are on the smaller side, BUT are still incredibly filling.
Service from Lonnie was Amazing.
Food was Very Good but portion size was a little small.
I do look forward to going back and trying one of their specialty sandwiches.
To expand on what “Value” means to me and what I expect in my dining experiences is “I want the whole package”.
The food and service was good but not excited about going back. Value to me also includes ambiance, dining room decor, eating utensils, cup and plate ware and overall feel and energy.
There are a few BBQ spots in the LV area that offer good food and what makes me return to those places is the dining experience.
What L2 needs to do in order to compete is “re-decorate” their dining room to make it more inviting, and comfortable so that people are excited to be there. Get rid of the paper cups and present food better on the plate. It felt like eating in a school cafeteria with dining booths.
They should show how proud they are of their food offerings and what they are trying to build.
The moment I sat down I knew L2 was not a place I would regularly visit regardless of the caliber of the food. I want more value for the money and time I spend when dining out.
Unfortunately, having the owner come out and chat with the patrons will not be enough to make this restaurant a go-to spot.
Note: They need to re-think the cornbread and Mac and cheese, both awful.
Thanks for 4 Stars for food & service Our views on value differ- our primary focus is on providing superior food at a reasonable price in a clean causal safe environment. Per a major Texas BBQ tradition most foods are served on metal trays with a liner. We have Texas themed decorations, but our focus first and foremost is our food. We try to appeal to a wide audience but if you desire flowers, tablecloths, and fine silverware, we admit we will not meet your standards. Come hungry/leave full
First visit and was impressed with the unusual options available alongside well made staples of bbq. The baked beans were some of the best in town. Slightly sweet, but coupled with full flavor. The fried baby back ribs were delicious, as was the deep fried smoked chicken.
The smoked ribs and smoked chicken (not deep fried), were standard fare and something that will satisfy those just want “normal” bbq. Would have liked more peach than breading in the cobbler, but it won’t stop us from coming back soon.
While we treasure the traditions of Texas BBQ and provide the all the basics, we also want to bring some fresh ideas to the table. Glad you enjoyed our unique options. We will add more peaches to our cobbler- thanks for letting us know. See you again soon
amazing brisket. great price. super friendly. casual atmosphere.
Very authentic Texas BBQ. I know, because I went with a Texan.
I know the place is new. here is what did not work for us:
- If you offer somebody to try your pork rinds than you should actually bring them out.
- If there is two dinners they would want to eat together which would mean getting their food at the same time. Restaurants all over the world manage that feat by starting with the dish that takes the longest.....
- If you tell customers that the BBQ sauce is coming with the plates than it should be...
the food was not bad and not good either. I think if I was starved for BBQ and there were no other options I would go back...however there are other options nearby that are better.
On the plus side the price was fair.
Thanks for giving us a try. You are 100% correct if we promise pork rinds and sauce we should deliver. We will retrain our staff. Regarding bringing everything out at once, we respectful disagree. Different foods take different amount of prep time. Our goal is always to serve the food hot and fresh. We bring it out as it is prepared. We are glad you recognize that we provide an excellent value. There are many styles of BBQ and we are sorry our style is not your favorite.
Fantastic! The ribs were the BEST I've ever had. Tender, juicy, fall off the bone, melt in your mouth goodness! We both ordered the two meat platters and it was so much food. Pricing is also great for the amount of food you get. We had a reservation for 5:30 and they seated us early, service was great, the chef came out and spoke with us for a few minutes, thanked us for giving them a try. We will most definitely be going back.
Glad you enjoyed the ribs. Our goal is that no one leaves hungry. See you again soon
We enjoy the food so much and the service is stellar. Really want to have this place succeed!
Great casual dining choice. Nice menu with a lot of variety, & all very reasonably priced. Everyone enjoyed their dinner (we all had different menu items). The service was also great! The owner Larry, came out from the kitchen to say hello and was very gracious. New restaurants usually take a little time to come together menu and service wise. These guys have done a great job and obviously care about customer opinions and satisfaction. I’m glad we ignored the few negative comments on other reviews, knowing that some people just can’t be pleased. If you want a restaurant where the owners welcome you as friends, and your appetite will be well taken care of, you will love this place!
Larry, we’ll be back soon my friend, thanks again...
My wife and I really enjoyed our meal. If your are looking for good tasting BBQ check this place out.
Good BBQ. Reasonable prices. Will go there again
Better than all the other BBQ places here, meats, sides and drinks were filling and delicious!
Excellent food and service. Chef/owner came to our table and spoke to us. Very good experience.
Loved the brisket, it was so tender and juicy. Also had the Mac and cheese and it was also delicious.
The waitress was super nice and attentive. My son (11 yr old) even mentioned how nice the waitress was ❤️
Thanks for your comment. We will let your staff know you appreciated their service
So good ! Delicious bbq and very friendly people. Clean inside and everything looks brand new. Loved the Mac and cheese and the cornbread. We will be back!
Had a little trouble with the menu in that it did not cover dinner and was different then what was online. Also it was not clear that with sandwiches any extras were charged at .30 cents. Not a large amount but it was not clear on paper menu about charges. The inside of restaurant lacked character needed tables in center area with perhaps flower or ??? Staff was very nice and chef making an appearance was very nice.
Would we recommend, not at this time.
We loved Memphis BBQ and perhaps after you have been is business for a while you will improve your menu and atmosphere.
Sorry to be so critical. With the virus things can be difficult.
We are still fine tuning our menu as we respond to customer requests. Our online menu allows us to immediately make changes. We encourage use of the online menu but paper menus are available. We apologize for our server not informing you about an added charge. Our goal is price transparency. Our décor by design is simple and functional. Our focus is on serving the best BBQ in Las Vegas at affordable prices.
Worth trying, heard about this new BBQ place and had to try it. You can tell they are new but it is great to see them open. Everyone in our party enjoyed their meals. I really appreciate meeting the Executive Chef anyone that comes out and takes the time to ask the dinners opinion ranks very high in my book. You now have a customer for life. Looking doers to my next meal.
The sandwich I got was very filling! We enjoyed the atmosphere and our waitress Traci was very attentive even though she had several tables!
Thanks for visiting us. Glad you enjoyed your meal. We hope to see you back often. Happy New Year
Pricing on food is outrageous. The taste of the food is okay. Not with the money paid. This is not Texas bbq as I am from Texas expected more out of this place. Really disappointed with the food and service.
We are sorry you found us wanting. We always want to improve. If you could provide specifics on what was wrong with your service and what is lacking in our ambience, we would appreciate it. Regarding our value, I assure you we analyzed the Las Vegas BBQ market extensively and that our prices and food quality are extremely competitive. We believe that our all you can eat option at 29.99 is the best BBQ value in Las Vegas.
Everything about the restaurant was good.. We ordered from them the next day too.
