We have lived about 30 minutes from the restaurant and have driven by many times and there have always been plenty of cars in the parking lot so we thought we should try it. We arrived on a Saturday night at about 5:30...the patio was empty and although there were empty tables we were told it would be 20-30 minutes... More

First off I am not here to tell you that I know southern BBQ better then the next guy but I will tell you that my family liked their meal here. We drove from Hamilton to Camp 31 in about 35mins or so, we got there before the dinner crowd really filled up the place and it was a very... More

After a great day of rafting down the Grand River our group decided on Camp31 BBQ for our late dinner. Although it was very busy and we had to wait a while for our food, it came out piping hot and delicious. We had the chicken, all you can eat ribs, Triple Threat Burger, pulled pork sandwiches and mac and... More

Camp 31 is a great bbq stop. I've had their BBQ chicken before but at the recommendation of a friend I tried the brisket melt today. It was delicious. The bun was fresh, and topped with a generous serving of beef, bbq sauce and cheese. The meat was hot, and was tender as I expected. The fries were crispy and... More

Where do I start. I was expecting excellent barbecue. When I travel I seek out good bbq, from Texas to NC to GA to KC. If you like fall off the bone ribs (over cooked), I don't, you might like Camp 31's except they were also burned. I got the chicken with my ribs and it was dry (over cooked)... More

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

I had the 3 piece and the breast was really moist. My husband had the brisket sandwich. Which was also good, moist and... More

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!
