BW's Smoking Barbecue catered a surprize 60th birthday party for us on Grand Island. They arrived on time, trailing their smoker, with the pig. Spent approximately one hour to complete the cooking and dressed it professionally. The cook was very personable and "pulled the pig" in full view of guests, creating quite a display. We ordered 3 sides as well-mac... More

Went here last night with my husband and it’s been awhile since we’ve been there. We got seated right away, waitress (Theresa) came right away and our food came piping hot within 10 minutes. We both had ribs which were awesome, fell right off the bone and the sides were delicious too. We definitely have to go to this place... More

So we decided to try this joint for the husbands birthday dinner. Menu was great, Meg, our server was very knowledgeable on the menu. John had the pulled pork, tender and tasty. I had the ribs and chicken. Kudos on both! Next time all ribs!

This place has been around for a while. Won't win any awards for decor. But the food, oh yeah! Julie had a Pulled Pork dinner. Pulled pork is her specialty made at home. It was excellent. She ordered sweet potato fries which were very good. Crunchy and tender. I tried a sampler platter. All components were very good. We are... More

Forget Famous Dave's and Smokey Bones... BW's has the best ribs I've had in Western New York. The ribs are coated with BW's own BBQ sauce, have a nice smokey flavor and melt in your mouth. The chicken and sweet potato fries are also excellent choices and have never disappointed. The restaurant/bar is a bit unassuming and could benefit from... More

We ordered for our office, for 30 people. We were sent enough food for maybe 20. Everyone got 1 small potato, 1 scoop of beans, 1 scoop of MacNCheese, 1 roll with pork and that was it. The macncheese was refrigerator cold, the pork was also cold, and none of it was very good. The best part of our lunch... More

Haven't been to BW' s in a while because I had heard it went down in quality. Gave it a try tonight, and I was not disappointed. Our server, Lenaya, was very friendly and efficient. No one tried the ribs this time around, but the pulled pork was delicious and plentiful, and my companion enjoyed the half chicken very much.... More

Food was OK, not awesome like it used to be. Ribs are my choice but they seem to be less "meaty" as in the past. Last two times we ordered chicken and it was dry and chewy. This place was great in the past, not so much now. A good cleaning and/or remodel would go a long way on it's... More

We have been stopping here frequently over the past several years and it's just not the same. Servers are fast and friendly but the food seems to be different. Our chicken now seems to be always on the dry side and the ribs (our Favorite) seem to have a lot more fat and less meat. Not food related but it... More
