Hard Eight BBQ is a family owned and operated business that recently celebrated its 10th year. The restaurant was started by the late Phillip Nivens and his wife Vicki, along with his son-in-law Chad Decker and wife Carie.




Hard Eight BBQ is a one-of-a-kind eating experience. The rustic atmoshere, authentic food and unique cooking and serving approach are aspects their fans have fallen in love with. Hard Eight BBQ is known for much more than just BBQ. Other favorites include the 2” pork chop, fresh cut 16 oz. ribeye served with onions, and their famous prime rib, cut to order.


The Hard Eight family enjoys sharing what they love; a fun atomoshpere, delicious food and freindly, “Texas style” service. Preparing delicious meals for families dining in, or for those who wish to take their food “on the go”, is also something they take pride in. Hard Eight restaurants host live music on their patios every Friday and Saturday evening. The highly trained staff is efficient at preparing, delivering and serving their food to the local business community. Catering is a big part of their business, and serving working men and women in their place of work is something this crew is dedicated to.

At Hard Eight, you won’t see a hostess at the entrance, nor will you have a waiter. You will be served right from the person who has prepared your food. Their pit masters serve you fresh, hot food, right from the pit. And, you are served fast.
