Best BBQ in town!

Did not think I was a fan of smoked BBQ wings until I had our holiday party catered to by Broken Barrel. Very reasonable prices and the owners are super nice!

Too many beer snobs who think they are important. You feel like you're in a cave because there is no sunlight. And don't take the Sharks seat. Some guy calls himself the shark because he drank every beer they sell. Can you spell cirrhosis ?

Excellent live music. Corned beef sliders and potato balls were really good with a couple of great beers, good prices. A roomy place with fun decorations, and though it was crowded it did not feel crowded because the tables are well spaced. Friendly and fast service.

Nice beer selection. Ordered the brisket nachos, pulled pork egg rolls and a side of baked beans. All were delicious. Service was average on a busy trivia night. The place is much nicer than it appears on the outside. Lots of seating, pool tables, TV's, etc... Will definitely return on a future visit to this area

This is a fun spot for good BBQ & a wide choice of beers. The only downside I have ever experienced is that it can get really loud & it's hard to have a conversation with your table mates. The staff has always been friendly & helpful. It's locally owned, too!

We discovered this restaurant about 2 years ago. Now it is a MUST visit at least once a month. We sit at the bar, our cold Miller Lites are put in front of us. Just give the nod, and our Smoked Chicken Wings, extra crispy with our favorites sauce, on the side, are already on order. People here are "... More

We keep coming back for the wings... The smoked wings at this place are easily in the top 5 of my favorites and I'm one of those idiots that just has to order wings everywhere I go. I love dipping them in the sweet Thai sauce they have, but they are fabulous right out of the basket. If you can... More
