We had dinner at Moose Creek BBQ tonight since it was just across the parking lot from our hotel. It was delicious! The brisket was fabulous, cooked perfectly, and the ribs were also outstanding. One of the side dishes was corn chowder and I've never had better. We will return!!

Order at the counter and it will be brought to you (time depends on how busy they are). the setting is not fancy (more like a fast food eatery), but it is clean and fine. The brisket BBQ sandwich was very good. Take out is available too. I'd like to try other menu items. The moose head on the wall... More

Good smoked barbeque with ample portions. Real sweet tea too. If in Arlington or nearby a must stop. Will be back. The got sauce has both flavor and heat but not overpowering.

Staff were extremely friendly, food was quick to the table and huge portions. I could only eat half the sandwich. My coworker had their ribs and she said they were excellent! I would... More

Picked up brisket and chicken for our office party and was NOT disappointed! Everyone loved the food and are talking of going on a regular basis for lunch. Moose Creek is a must to have lunch or dinner at!

I had lunch here and am planning on returning for another meal before I leave the area. Best BBQ!! It's definitely the 'hole in the wall' place. From the outside it doesn't look like much, but the food is sooooo good!!!!

I'm a BBQ nut. We go every time were in the area. Everything they have is excellent. I haven't had the smoked prime rib as I always come to late on Friday. It sells out FAST. The half chickens also sell out fast, so get there before 6 pm. The mac salad, potato salad, BBQ beans, ribs, basically everything is... More

I have ordered food to go 2 times from Moose Creek and have enjoyed it on both occasions. I do a lot of home made barbq so am a real critic. In terms of BarBQ in the NW and even in Arlington which is not at all a center for great places to eat, Moose Creek is a welcome respite.... More

My husband and I stopped here for a late lunch. A bit difficult to find even with navigation. On the inner side of a strip mall. Perhaps larger sign on the busy street? We ordered sandwiches, one beef brisket with beans on the side and one chopped brisket with coleslaw. Both sandwiches were delicious with enough left over to take... More
