I have been visiting Larks for several years now and always get the same thing. An order of Rib Tips with Fries. Since their move into their new building, I unfortunately have to report that the quality of the meat has declined. Although the sauce flavoring is outstanding, the tips themselves are too gristly, fatty and chewy. Larks does have... More

I started frequenting Larks about 15 years ago and I still don't know what my favorite menu item is. Country Style Pork, Catfish Sandwich, Pig on a Bun, Blessed Man Sandwich are all recommended. Save room for some of Mrs. Lark's peach cobbler or carrot cake. Prepare to nap afterwards as the portions are huge and the prices are small.

On a snowy Sunday night, we decided to finally stop by Lark's. We were sure glad we did. The new building is really nice and the people working were very friendly and helped us decide what to get. (We ordered the 1/2 Feast). I had read several reviews that said this was Southern BBQ. We decided we didn't care if... More

Great BBQ ribs and chicken, with all of the side dishes you would expect. A long time favorite that has recently moved into very attractive new sit-down facilities. We have been pleased on multiple occasions with our take out.

If you like some of the more unique types of BBQ this is the place for you. More fish, turkey knuckles, pigs feet, etc. here than you will find in most places. Smelling the food,cooking outside on the grill when you enter is very inviting. Portions are large (four bones is plenty for one person) and sides are good. New... More

My first time to Larks BBQ. The wait was long, about 25 minutes to pick up a slab of ribs at lunch time. The flavor was good; however, they were overdone and fatty and the meat was not very tender.

We have gotten take-out here in the past (it used to be in a hole in the wall location, that wasn't really inviting). The food has been amazing every time we have had it. They now have a new building and it is great for eating-in. The food was great as usual. My favorites (so far) pulled bbq chicken sandwich... More

Lark has the best BBQ in Michigan, maybe anywhere I've been and I'm not an easy sell. It's all done outside on a open air grill just the way you'd expect for a rating that high. They offer a combo meal with ribs and chicken that is really nice to experience the meat and his potatoes. And you can take... More

Based on some mixed reviews, I decided to at least do a drive by to check it out. Upon seeing the multiple smokers surrounding the place and a good chunk of cars out front, I gave it a go. Definitely glad I did. I got the rib & rib tip combo and it was swimming in bbq sauce. Nice smokey... More
