They have good BBQ, the baked beans are especially tasty. The pricing is a little high but if you aren't going to the trouble to make your own, this is a good option.

Love the ribs at 17th Street. The best potato salad and baked beans too! Nice hometown feel and great service. Priced just about right!

We were in the area - had hiked the Little Grand Canyon which is about 8 or so miles away in Pomona. We each had the BBQ. I like mine quite well. My friend thought it could have a bit more sauce. I had the macaroni and cheese side, and I though it was great. Service was a bit overwhelmed,... More

Service was slow at best this past Saturday nite. First time there, not overly impressed with food either, bar-b-que beef "lots of bull" sandwich was tasty, baked sweet potato did not come with butter, took forever to get 1st beer and even longer for 2nd.

So this place is paradise. Great smoked meat. I have tried everything and nothing disappoints. However, my favorite is The brisket the sauerkraut The local beer French fries and a brownie for dessert I will drive far and wide to come here. The kids serving you are always happy and fun.

Pete and I have eaten at 17th Street for over 25 years and it is truly one of the best bar-b-cue places we have been to in years. The ribs are outstanding, the staff is friendly, and prices competitive. They do get busy on weekends, so you may have a little wait on the food coming to the table, but... More

Food is okay. I can get better bbq elsewhere. Price is to high. Location is good. Bbq could be so much better.

Went in for lunch on Friday the 25th of November with my brother, SOL and 4 children. (Two teens and two small children). The waitress suggested the family style platter which would provide enough food for the group and give us a good sample of their menu items. Price $70. We agreed. A few minutes later our waitress came back... More

We drove all the way from Louisville, KY just to come to the 17th St BBQ. It was worth the drive. I had one of the best baked sweet potatoes ever. The collards were amazing - sweet and meaty. The ribs were tender and juicy. The only thing that I really didn't care for was the sauce. They had only... More
