Just one of our favorites. Been eating Podnuh's since I was a child. The brisket, chicken and beans are the best! The restaurant is always clean and the staff is always very friendly even when we arrive to pick up an order close to closing on a Friday night. We stop on our way to my mom's on your drive... More

We have stopped going here because there was never a clean table. The food is good but I just don't want to sit at a table and eat that hasn't been cleaned.

Slow and steady goes the cooking process of this local BBQ joint. Do yourself a favor and get the sides of baked beans and potato salad. You will be glad you did.

Really enjoyed the bbq here. The restaurant was clean and the service was quick. The bathroom door lock did not work however.

Had high hopes for this place after a few recommendations, but it was just OK. Atmosphere severely lacking and no beer at a BBQ place!! Really? The food was good - much better after we doctored it up at home. Good enough to try again - but only for take out.

This is BBQ the way it shoul be made and the way it should taste. Ever since the original owner took it back over the food has gone back to tasting like BBQ should.

Podnuh's has been around for many years and the food has always been good to above average for a barbecue restaurant; however, the West Monroe location is definitely showing signs of age. Remodeling is long overdue, and while quaintness and reminders of the past can be a pleasant diversion, Podnuh's really does need to update itself especially with Newt's opening... More

This has been my 2nd trip to this location. I enjoyed it the 1st time and when I was able to go again I had the peach cobbler again. Not that the bbq isn't the best too but if I'm dying I'm asking for the cobbler for my last meal. Friendly staff, fresh made food. Very enjoyable.

Ate here after we heard they had good BBQ. I had the 2 meat special with beef and shredded pulled pork. My husband had the sausage. The sides we had were potato salad, baked beans, green beans and peach cobbler. You help yourself to the BBQ sauce as you go through the line. The meal also comes with a piece... More
