Surprising how many people don't know that they are buying the cheapest cut of ribs and think they are good. Come on people know what you are buying!

After a mediocre rib experience in Kitchener, I was looking forward to some ribs that were comparable to those I had in May in the Southern U.S. The ribs at Camp 31 hit the spot. They were tender and tasty. The fries were good (albeit a bit salty for my taste) and the BBQ Baked Beans were actually better than... More

Went to camp 31 today for lunch, food was really good, hot and fresh. I had the fried chicken which was really good, the outside was really crispy, bur not burnt and the inside was very moist. I had the 3 piece and the breast was really moist. My husband had the brisket sandwich. Which was also good, moist and... More

Have drove by many times and this last time pulled in...It was mid afternoon..Late lunch / early dinner type thing.. To be fair the time of day was not right for the meal... The food tasted re-heated, it was good, but not hot... I had 2 beers and a pulled pork on a bun...If it was fresh it would of... More

A regular stop when we're in Paris each year. When traveling in Alabama last year, we kept comparing southern bar-b-que restaurants and found we liked Camp 31 better. If you like bar-b-que, this is it. The only problem is the huge portions they serve - we usually share one meal between 2 people!

We recently went for dinner at Camp 31 on a Saturday night. There were a few people in line so we waited outside for about a 1/2 hour until we got a table. Our daughter, who has been there a few times, said she has never had to wait. Its a small place and very casual. The servers were quick... More

My wife and I brought five other friends to Camp 31 last night for the first time and it's safe to say, we won't be back. I personally have been in the business for over 20 years and this was a classic case of poor business. From the moment we pulled up and got wind of the foul smell in... More

I have been to Camp 31 number pus times. This past weekend we attended on a Friday night and I have to say I was disappointed. The menu has changed which is fine. Some new items added that sound exciting. Prices have increased, which I don't mind. But they need to work on portion sizes of their sides. The mount... More

This was our second time here! Great food! Award-winning BBQ. The restaurant decor and the honestly delicious BBQ food makes you feel like you're in the deep South USA.

We've heard that Camp 31 is supposed to be quite the award winning eating experience. It looked promising when we arrived, as there was a line up of many people chomping at the bit just to get in. The décor at best is very basic and seems similar to what I would imagine a moon-shine shack would be in the... More
