The Bar-B-Que is excellent,reasonably priced,quality and quantity of food is very good. Only drawback is that the so-called restaurant is a dirt and gravel lot with wood picnic tables. There is a small covered area toward the back of the lot but not adequate if bad weather arrives. This is better suited to summer outdoor dining than year round. Like... More

I stopped and was recommended the pulled pork sandwich and I ordered a side of beans. I am a business traveler and really like to try different barbeques. The sandwich was good, but very average. I took one bite of the beans and they were not good at all. The menu for a barbeque was very odd and they did... More

We stopped here by chance on our way through and were pleasantly surprised. My husband got the Beef Sandwich and I had the Hawaiian Pork Sandwich. Very good meat, but in my opinion it could have used more sauce as it was a little on the dry side. However, it definitely worth the stop. It's right off the freeway and... More

We shared 1/2 a rack of ribs. They were tasty. The potato salad was okay. The garlic bread was good. We would go back again. It was reasonably priced. Keep in mind, there is no indoor seating.

All the food was very appealing and appetizing. Loved the... More

Saw the big sign as we were stopping for snacks at the gas station and had to investigate. We ordered the pulled pork sandwich and split it between the four of us (husband, 8 year old son & 5 year old daughter) just as a little sampler. Delicious!!!!! On the way home from Idaho Falls we had the entire family... More

Passing through Malad and saw the biggest sign BBQ! Had no choice but go check it out and so glad I did. Only downside was ordering a plate that was on the menu yet the lady taking my order had no clue they had. BBQ chicken and pulled pork. That's what I chose and was impressed with. The sauce was...

This is probably a lot of fun in the summer when things are moving faster but there's no place to eat in the cold so plan on take out until May/June. The meat was tender and flavorful but the beans tasted like they were right out of a can.

Overpaid for food that was dry, overcooked, tough meat and chicken that tasted as if it had been sitting on a counter all day! The sides are horrible to say the least, nothing homemade about them. UCK!!

We stop anytime we are in the area. We have even driven two hours round trip just to eat here. Very generous portions and everything we have tried has been delicious.
