We had lunch there. The food was great and reasonably priced. I have a pulled pork sandwich, potato salad and a soda for $7. It is not a fancy place but was clean and the guy running the place was very nice. I would go back again

How do you BBQ and smoke meat without either a smoker or BBQ pit? Not clean, liquid smoke and no view. If you like old air heads (BMW Motorcycles) old magazines and imitation BBQ this is the place.

I'm not sure how the health department allows this place to stay open. Against our better judgment we stayed and ate. I passed on the coleslaw since it wasn't cold. There was a cat wandering around on the tables.

We wanted something good and decided to try Rollin Thunder BBQ. I had half rack of ribs, my wife had the special, chicken. We both had two sides, beans and slaw. We took it to go and paid less than 20 bucks for both meals, no tax (Oregon). In my previous life I travelled for bussiness, visiting Memphis many times.... More

While on museum tour we asked for the best hole n the wall restaurant in Astoria. This was recommended and it was to die for. I come from a town where the international bbq festival is held every year so I know a lot about good BBQ. And I ordered the ribs and they did not disappoint! The best most... More

While eating we conversed with folks from Canada who had eaten the night before and had come back for lunch. Their plans to come back for dinner and then return for lunch. They equally loved the beef brisket the pulled pork and the chicken. We enjoyed the brisket. Great food good service and astounding price.

We ate here at the suggestion of our B&B. We had been eating heavy meals for quite a few days, and wanted something lighter. This place was perfect. The owner/cook/waiter was very friendly, and it was obvious that regulars from town frequented this establishment. I had the pulled pork, with cornbread and barbecue beans. It was wonderful (significantly better than... More

If your looking for some good BBQ, Rolling Thunder can fill you up! We went in for a late lunch on a Saturday and had the pulled pork sandwiches and smoked potato salad. The sandwiches were excellent and had a huge portion of pork. The potato salad was also good but not too smoky. The owner was very friendly and... More

Stopped in after a long day of hiking, and got the brisket meal - comes with cornbread and two sides. I got the beans and the cole slaw. The beef brisket was nice - not too dry and with good flavor, and came with a decent amount of sweet sauce. The beans were my favorite side - and didn't taste... More
