The food was very good, prices reasonable, and service fast and friendly. The menu is mostly bar-b-que, but has sandwiches and a great selection of side dishes. It is located between Show Low and Pinetop, on the main highway, but a little hard to spot if your not looking for it, but worth the effort to locate it.

Wow. Very decent bbq. The smoke flavor is pronounced, especially in the brisket and the ribs. We bought the super combo which had chicken, pulled pork, 1/4 rack of ribs and brisket. Our order was heavy on chicken and pulled pork. So much so, that the two of us ended up with leftovers for another meal (not a complaint!). The... More

In my opinion the prices were in line with the portions and quality. The servers were attentive and offered suggestions that were spot on. Try the grilled corn, you'll be amazed! The BBQ pork ribs were tender and tasty with plenty of sauce on the side. Definitely planning on a re-visit when back in the area.

We've been here many times over the past few years and always come back for more. Meat is lean and the BBQ sauce is good. Portions are generous, so you can share if you're not too hungry. The baked corn on the cob is delish!!!

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!

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.
