Although we often dine here as a family, it's not one of personal favourites, but there is no denying the bbq is good. This place is every bit authentic when it comes to down home southern bbq, from the plank flooring to the wooden beams and bone buckets, when you walk in, it's like you've been transported to Alabama.

My mouth started watering as soon as I got out of my truck. The kitchen exhaust was blowing right over to me. I couldn't wait to get inside. This was my first visit to Camp 31 and I was meeting a co-worker from a few months back who is now working in Ingersol. We went on a Tuesday and did... More

Very good BBQ. Expect to wait for a seat but worth the time spent. Quick friendly service and delicious food. Lots of awards around the restaurant from winning competitions.

If your looking for a true southern bbq in southwestern ontario, Camp 31 in Paris Ontario is the the place to go!! This is quite a small restaurant but a cozy atmosphere. We were a group of 4. 3 of us went for the 1/2 rack of baby back ribs and 1/2 rack of St. Louis style ribs. The 4th... More

The fried chicken is the best thing on the menu. So tasty and delicious. Have tried multiple different appetizer and they have all been good too. I look forward to my next visit!

Camp 31 offers up authentic down-south BBQ that is so worth the drive. It isn't a big venue and they don't take reservations after 4 PM so either get there early or go later.....we found a 2 PM visit on a Saturday just perfect for a late lunch and no crowd. The ribs are amazing and everything is smoked to... More

We went here to dine prior to a Karaoke night. The service was really good and the waiter was super. The place was empty and that kind of threw me off but it was Saturday night after 8pm. Our friends suggested it as they have been there a few times. The decor is rustic which is fine it is a... More

Smoked chicken wings were strictly average. Too much sauce. I'll come back to try the ribs, but if they're like the wings, it'll be my last visit.
