Saw Saddleback online and decided to try the place as good BBQ is hard to find here in the Lansing Area. Oh yeah there's Meat, but I hate waiting and don't want to take a chance of the things I want being sold out-- So...More

It's always great to have another independent restaurant in this area that is dominated by chain restaurants. So have been to Saddleback two or three times now, each time for takeout. The first visit was just days after they opened, so I cut them some...More

Saddleback seems to be always full of patrons and I wonder why...it may be the only BBQ restaurant in Okemos. The food is good with a sliver of corn bread...crumbs it seems. The price is a bit stiff for what you get.

This was our first visit to Saddleback BBQ. Nice place. Small, with not much seating, but attentive staff. My wife had the pulled pork sandwich and I had brisket. The pulled pork was excellent. My brisket was a little too tough. If we come back,...More

Happy to try a new BBQ place near home. First, menu options are limited with no reasonable combinations (you would hope so to try out different dishes). Prices seem a little higher than similar places but here side dishes are extra making it much more...More
