“Great ribs”

Brister's Smokehouse BBQ
Ranked #9 of 113 Restaurants in Ruston
Restaurant details
Reviewed February 21, 2017

We've been there for lunch 2 or 3 times, having had a pulled-pork sandwich and ribs. The cole slaw is good, although I prefer vinegar slaw over the mayo version. We always have extras to take home, since portions are large. Not exactly a health-food spot, but good for an occasional caloric splurge.

Took someone from out of town there for dinner. I had never been and heard rave reviews. Arrived at 6:15 pm and they were out of over half the menu items. I had to give a rating so just average until I can try something to eat. The place was clean and inviting looking.

Whether you want a quick barbecue sandwich that's out of this world, or a full multi meat barbecue plate with extras, this is the place in Ruston just off exit 84.

We love to eat at Bristers when we are in Ruston.
Since they have built a new location we have noticed that their portions have decreased.
Also, they tend to run out of baked potatoes.
Love the nachos though.

One word "Scatter load". Great sandwich and good place for lunch. Great Sweet Tea. A local gem you should try if in town!
