Brooks makes the best chicken I have ever had. It is the highlight of any visit to the Oneonta area. Everything else is top notch as well but that chicken. OMG..

My Fiance's sister sent us the "nesting box" for Christmas. Having heavy family bbq roots in Memphis, I wasn't too sure about an Up State NY bbq joint. Tell you what, I was more than pleasantly surpised by all the items in the box, especially the BBQ sauce. The grillin rub is some of the best but the Spiedie marinade... More

I am a local so I eat here a lot. But it is well know to all, they ship their BBQ sauce out locally and internationally! It is a must to stop and taste the award winning chicken,pork,beef, ribs and salmon ! I promise you will not be sorry. They also have soft ice cream outback at the gift shop.... More

My family and I have been coming here for 40 years. The BBQ half chickens were flavorful and moist. My side salads of coleslaw and potato we fresh and home made. A must stop when passing through!

If your looking for the best BBQ food this is the place. It's a sit down family type restautant serving lunch and dinner. I recommend the sampler platter which includes rib, chicken, pork and roast beef. Also included is the salad bar and a fresh baked loaf of bread. There is always a line but it moves fast. You won't... More

Brooks is always great. Their BBQ is uniquely theirs. Not too much smoke, sauce is like a sweet Carolina style. Brooks chicken is the best around, and I really don't like chicken. I love the old style decor and service is always friendly. We always stop here when we're in the area. Please don't ever change a thing!
