After having a week of poor food experiences in Yellowstone, bar 3 was an excellent way to end our trip to Montana. The food was flavorful, served in a timely manor and the staff was great. We have 3 growing boys and everyone was enjoying...More

We did a big carry out order at the insistence of a friend, and were in no way disappointed. The food was all good - we got a pound of smoked brisket, which was tasty, with a nice bark, though just a tiny bit dry....More

Authentic BBQ with great sides. We got ours to go but many beers available for dine in. The sauce we tried was their house specialty and not spicy. Don't know if spicey is available.

If you like barbecue and you're in Bozeman, you need to head over to bar 3. You order from the counter and settle down at a table while you wait for your food. We had the brisket sandwich and the 2-meat special. There's a selection...More

I had the brisket, perfectly smoked, the macaroni and cheese (toddler approved), and fried green tomatoes (yummy!). Boyfriend had the Carolina pulled pork and garlic mashers (potatoes). He's from NC and everything...More

The restaurant is small but authentic, you order at the counter, collect your food when your name is called and then you clear your own tables - of which there are only 6 so it gets crowded quickly. I visited on a Saturday night and...More

Their various BBQ ribs are great, as is their BBQ chicken. LOVE their chili cheese grits, their fried okra and their (free) pickle slices (OMG!) Many good choices of BBQ sauces. Small eat-in seating but nice area. Friendly service is normal. They do a lot...More
