Good BBQ. The ribtips were great and the french fries were freshly made. I would recommend the beef brisket, very tender and tasty. Food was served in to go styrofoam boxes instead of plates. Set up more for take out but there are chairs and tables to sit at inside. I will be a return customer.

I moved to the area a few years ago and was referred to Scott Jamama's for great BBQ. It was good, but not mind-blowing. But C&G's blows them away. Seriously, some of the best BBQ I have ever had, and it's just down the street.

My favorite BBQ in the Twin Cities. No ambience to speak of if you dine in. Oh, but the food! Great range on the menu and perfect food!

I am not a barbecue fan. Too much work, too messy, overbearing sauces, but my husband loves it and this is where he chose to go for his birthday meal. A very small neighborhood place where most people ordered takeout. We ordered in, there was a special on a barbecue chicken sandwich and I thought that would work for me.... More

The specialty, smoked beef and coleslaw on a fresh baked roll! No sauce needed but it is ok if you want. The ribs taste great are juicy and beef or pork both go down fast. Greg knows it all. His catfish and black eyed peas are my favorite while my wife gets mad if I do not bring home a... More

Ribs and brisket ordered. Service indifferent. Food the same. Okay for a quick takeout when you don't feel like cooking dinner, but there are better options nearby.

BBQ is a hard one to rate because everyone likes theirs different. I enjoyed theirs a lot. It had good flavor.

My husband and I ate here last night. We wanted a quick, inexpensive weeknight meal, and I had purchased a discount voucher for C&G. Our pulled pork sandwiches were excellent, as was the mac & cheese. Fortunately, it wasn't croweded; there are only 4 tables inside. I believe we were served by the owner, and our food was delivered quickly.... More

I have eaten barbeque in probably 20 different states. I also smoke my own ribs so I know what good barbeque is. Here is the rundown on C&G. Location: Residential and business area. This particular restaurant is in a bit of a rundown strip mall. Thats ok...most good bbq comes from seedy looking locations. Staff: Girl at front desk took... More
