About Us

About Joe Allen’s 

Welcome to Joe Allen's Pit Bar-B-Que, where three generations of Allen family members – plus some other very important folks – still work to serve you the best barbecue and steaks in the country. 
We first opened our doors on January 2nd, 1980

Established in 1980, our locally-owned restaurant in Abilene, TX loves serving a menu that’s full of flavor. From our world-famous steaks to our mesquite-smoked BBQ, we have many delicious options for you to choose from. When you dine with us, we treat you like part of our extended family. 

In addition to sit-down dining, we offer catering services for all types of events, including weddings, rehearsal dinners, parties, family picnics, corporate gatherings, and other events.
