Bolivar St. BBQ is a family owned restaurant in historic downtown Sanger, Texas.

(Scroll down a little further to read reviews written by Daniel Vaughn of Texas Monthly and KLUV’s Jody Dean!)

Our big-boy smokers run 24/7 and we are proud to serve mouth-watering, Texas-style smoked brisket, pulled pork, ribs, sausage, burgers, home-made family recipes for great sides and more!

See our Menu for full details.

We have 7 big screen televisions and a beer & wine bar so you can come and watch sports and enjoy our food and service!  Bring your entire family and friends and make this your destination for BBQ!

We are ALL ABOUT BBQ!  (As are all Texans! We all think good BBQ IS the American apple pie and baseball, all in one bite!)

We love it and our family loves it!  Brian Davis had a vision of opening a great BBQ restaurant for the past 30 years!  After constant urging from friends and family, who enjoyed his home-smokin’ fare and amazing sides, he opened Bolivar St. BBQ in December 2016. (The place is named after the street it’s on in Sanger).  Naturally, due to their own love for BBQ, ‘ the boys’, Brian’s 2 nephews, Joshua Cook-PitMaster/Manager and Cody Cook and Brian’s two brothers, Brad & Joe Davis and cousin Kevin, all had to be a part of this family passion! (Not to mention Brian’s wife, Mim and our friends Brandon,  Brittany and Courtney, who are all part of this incredible team!)




Thank you Texas Monthly for including us as a must stop BBQ restaurant in North Texas in your 50 Best BBQ Joints in Texas June 2018 issue! We are honored to be mentioned and we invite everyone to enjoy our slow smoked Q and unique menu items with amazing scratch-made sides and the best burgers!  We appreciate the hard work of our entire staff! ❤



Brian and ‘the boys’ are BBQ smoking aficionados with lots of knowledge and experience as Pit Masters and chef talents. Old family recipes and new exciting recipes are served with smiles and commitment to amazing taste and quality of food and service. From the moist, wood fired, Texas-style slow-smoked, perfectly tender brisket (& ribs, pulled pork, turkey breast and custom-made sausages) to the sides and desserts, the food that comes out of the kitchen is some of the best!  Our BBQ sauce is awesome, but you may not want it, our special rub, smoked meats don’t need any sauce, just the way you expect it!

We want this to be a family restaurant for all of you and we also cater to our football and sports lovers and have a special heart for the military and 1st responders!  We have 7 large-screen televisions one or two of which include cartoons and fun channels for the kids.  We have a beer & wine bar for those who love a good brew with their BBQ meal!  Oh, and we mustn’t forget ~ our hamburgers are out of this world!  Truly, we think we have the best burgers in town, if not in the Dallas/Fort Worth/Dentin area.  Let us know what you think!

The only problem we’ve encountered so far is that it’s hard to save room for seconds!  BBQ lovers looking to savor great food will not be disappointed.  We can’t explain the pleasure that will occur after you enjoy tasty bites of our food!  And for those not living near Sanger ~ hey, we’re only 45 minutes away from Dallas or Fort Worth, 10 minutes north of Denton and definitely worth the drive.  We ARE a destination BBQ joint!
