This place is one of my Brother's favorite restaurants. I can see easily see why. I chose the brisket, along with some pulled pork. Must say, that I was not disappointed. Very moist and very delicious. The sides that were included were awesome. The beans are Out of my his world!! Don't miss an opportunity to dine here.

The food was good but pretty pricey for BBQ. Not much in the way of service, but no complaints about the food.

Great quality, portion, value, and service. Even the cole slaw (which most restaurants don't care about) is fresh and excellent. I could tell you about so many other things, but I'd rather you be surprised.

Small place located in an industrial area. They do a good business and their food is the reason why. The ribs are quite good and all the side dishes also. Worth the ride.

I thought the food was very good. The St. Louis style ribs were quite tasty and meaty, the brisket was a bit on the dry side (tasty though). Both meats could have been warmer, but they were fine nonetheless. The homemade fried were excellent, as was the mac & cheese. The dessert was a nice touch. I will eat here... More

Branks BBQ has quickly become our go to place for decent BBQ in the South Sound. Despite living within walking distance of another well know local BBQ establishment, I woulld crawl on my hands and knees all the way to Sumner for Branks.

Ordered lunch for take-out, for a business meeting across the street. I had the pulled pork plate. The pork was very very good. BBQ sauce on the side was very tasty. The side salad was good, too. The fries, although plentiful, were incredibly limp. The taste was good, and if they were crispier, they would have been top-notch. My co-worker... More

Staying close by, and this was the only food available, in a trading estate and not that appealing from outside. However I was not disappointed. Good welcome, good service. Food: good potions of freshly prepared "Barbeque" food. You can't fail to be satisfied by this place. In the area, fancy a gut busting barbeque, you have to give it a... More
