Before you slander their location, taste the food

Before I start this review let me tell you I am reviewing the quality of the food, not the location. I remember before this restaurant was indeed a restaurant in downtown Albany.

This place has the nicest people working there as did the old location. They moved from downtown Albany to an old gas station off of Highway 34 and Interstate 5. The old location had charm and a welcoming feel to it. Food used to be incredible as was the service. The new location is more like a food cart feel.... More

Dear Da M, I wanted to get back to you as soon as possible and let you know that we have not sold our business. It's still Momma, Papa Dan and the seven children. I am sorry that you did not feel like you received the same quality of food as before, however, we still smoke the Brisket for 18... More

The food is awesome but I don't understand this location. No indoor seating only noisy outdoor seating. I'm just rating the food here. Take a look at their toilet facilities...

This is our go-to place for excellent BBQ. It's nothing fancy. The setting is loud since you're sitting at picnic tables right next to a freeway, but grab that BBQ and haul it down to a beautiful park. Or home. Lots of food. Big yummy flavor. Nice people. Fair prices. Go there. Immediately.

Friendly staff, some of the best barbeque I have ever tasted. If you like good southern cooking this is the place to be.

Their BBQ pork is just excellent as is the cornbread. The location - not so much. It is noisy and we had to eat outside when we went. It happened to be 90+ degrees when we were there. I would love to have Bo-Mack's cater an event. They have the best BBQ around!

Wish they hadn't moved from town. The new location is at the exit, so worth getting off for! The smoke flavor of the meat is incredible and don't miss out on the cornbread. ..

Great BBQ. The brisket fell apart, so tender & juicy. Potato salad, beans & Cole slaw were tasty. Good sized portions.

From a family coming from North Carolina where they have the best barbecu, this place is amazing! Was worried because we have been to places that are supposedly amazing, but nothing in comparison to our NC barbecue. This was awesome!

Visited Bo-Mack's BBQ Express on 7/30/2015, our first visit to their new "Express" location on Hwy 34 at I-5. Great BBQ & sides, but the location is best for takeout. You'll love the food and wish you could be adopted as part of this irrestably cute and earnest family of restauranteurs. All of their smoked meats (beef brisket, grilled chicken,... More
