Very friendly staff and quick service. We each got a bbq sandwhich, one pork and one brisket. It was so tender and the bbq sauce they gave us on the side was delicious. Would definitely go again!

While visiting my mom for the weekend, we had dinner @ Grumpy Jake's on Sat, June 14. WOW... the food was OUTSTANDING... THE BEST BBQ I've EVER had... anywhere!

This was my first trip to the Pinetop/Lakeside area. Arrived on a Friday night and went to Grumpy Jake's for the all you can eat fish. The fish was excellent, and the service was very good!

My husband said it was one of the best pulled pork sandwiches he had EVER had. I had a cup of chili which was excellent and just enough for lunch. Fresh baked corn bread came before lunch and also with the chili. To top it off the service was incredibly friendly and attentive. We were thoroughly pleased.

This place was awesome. Some U.S. Forest service fire fighters recommended this place to us. Wow whata great call. The food was fresh, hot and delicious. They serve this BBQ sauce on the side and hot. The portion are great. Didn't leave at all hungry or disappointed. Service was excellent to. Price where also reasonable. Would go again.

My wife & I stopped in here in February during our ski trip to Sunrise Park Resort. The wait staff was totally friendly and the food came quickly! My wife ordered a pulled pork sandwich and found it to be quite yummy! I had a sampler plate (I think it was called the Piglet Platter) that was a huge array... More

If it weren't the waitresses flirting with my husband, the hair in my food sure sealed the fate of this visit. I will never go again!

We had the pulled BBQ pork sandwich. It was so tender, and their homemade BBQ sauce was delicious! They bring warm little cornbreads that were very moist. We had a piece of coconut pie, and a piece of lemon cream cheese, and they both were very good.
