Stopped in for lunch ch while in the city. I had the steak Tacos they were a little skimpy. My wife had the BLT burger it was fantastic. I wish I had gotten it. Well next time. Staff was friendly and very helpful.

We ate at one of their restaurants in Reading, PA last year. Based on that experience, we chose to eat at another one while traveling. They have a great beer list - bottled and draft. We ordered smoked chicken wings as an app and they were outstanding. We might have asked for them to hold the sweet, sticky sauce had... More

With plenty of room! Big TV's at the bar. Went to this place before a WB/Scranton hockey game and it was great! Had the ribs, all of us and they were very good. Great service, great staff at a reasonable price. Lot's of fun. Would recommend it.

We went here for lunch. My wife and I split a choose 3 meal ( which ended up being a 4 because I couldn't help myself) We had the pulled pork, BBQ chicken breast, chicken tenders, and sausage. We both chose baked beans as our side. The food was delicious. The waitress was very attentive and helpful. I ended up... More

When I go to this place for lunch I stay away from their BBQ because it's normally nothing special, so I stick with a salad. That's what I had this time as I watched those around me comment on the dryness of the BBQ needing of course sauce on it which means not really good BBQ. Visit here for a... More

Stopped by for lunch. This was my second time at SB's. Love the lunch special, one meat, two sides and bread for under $10. Best deal around. As always the food was good along with the service. You won't find better barbecue anywhere in the country.

Naturally we had to go for the ribs. She ordered the baby back & I went for the St. Louis style. Sides were baked potato & cole slaw. You get 2 choices of sides. We shared the ribs so we both could sample. Both of us preferred the baby back over the dry rub though both were quite good. The... More
