The cheesy potatoes are the best. The brisket is good. If you want to cater, it is a great option. quick and reasonable. Good for take out.

I used to think this place was awesome. My visit a couple days ago was not great. The pork didn't taste smoked. The ribs did not fall off the bone and we're almost tough. The biggest shock was that every booth has seats that are cracked or ripped. The seats, the bases. One table was overturned because it was broken.... More

I wish they have this place in MI or any other cities I go to. The closest one to the same concept is Dickey's, but this one by far is the best. I love the food, the concept and the service.

I have always enjoyed the food at. BBQ This. Recently I ordered carry out food for my daughter's birthday. They forgot several things and when I returned to pick up the food. I received the worst customer service from the staff and the manager on duty. They accused me of lying to get free food. They just lost a good... More

Food is usually good but the place needs some attention. They've had a broken booth for over a year and a broken BBQ Sauce dispenser for over three months. It doesn't seem like there is anyone in charge of taking care of he place.

I hadn't been here for quite sometime. I remembered the Monday special for a pulled pork sandwich, a side, and drink for $6.49 and had to try it again. It was very good. They weighed the meat to get the right portion, and it was quite a bit. I think more than it used to be longer ago. The sandwich... More

100% recommend for take out! Brisket and spicy BBQ sauce is the best! 90% of the time when we have out of town guests (and we have a lot!), this is the place we go to over and over again for take out food for a crowd. We even have some house guests that ask each time they come to... More

Used to be decent place for decent bbq. Last time, meat was dry, portions were small, cornbread was greasy, and cheesy potatoes were way undercooked. Not a good meal at all.

Love BBQ This for great BBQ. The price is a bit high, but we have found some great coupons that make it a great value for your money. The staff is always very friendly!

Heres the thing, when you call ahead and order a full rack of ribs, brisket, and pulled pork and the guy tells you it will be ready in 10 mins thats a concern. So i imagine the food is frozen or sits all day. Brisket was dry but everything else was average.
