While I hail from Wisconsin and Minnesota, I spent almost a decade living in Texas, and my husband was born and bred there. This is NOT Texas barbecue. In fact, it was just very average all around. We tried the brisket, the chicken, and the turkey, along with the beans, potato salad, and cole slaw. Oh, and the "Texas toast."... More

What a surprise to find a wonderful place for BBQ - in a strip mall. I've only been here during the lunch hour- very crowded, line out the door. Waiting in line, the smell is amazing!! I like the chopped beef sandwich with (2) sides. Cole slaw and the baked beans are my favorite. Ribs are very good too- and... More

Baker's Ribs is fantastic BBQ! What to expect: This is a restaurant where you order at the check-out as you enter, and then can take your food to go or to stay. (Similar to Noodles and Co.). The atmosphere is very rustic and fun! It screams southern BBQ. They also have a couple of tables outside, should you want that.... More

Went with my parents. ..the food was very tasty however the person at the counter didn't seem so pleased to be there. His attitude gave the impression the we/the customers were an imposition.

When you pull into the parking lot your expectations arent too high. However, walk on in and give it a try. You see the same friendly faces behind the counter nearly every time I have been here over the last 10+ years and you can have peanuts for free while waiting to order. Texas style BBQ. My favorite for lunch... More

Even in the twin cities, you can find quality Texas style BBQ. 15$ for a 3 meat plate of your choice with 2 sides is pretty legit. Service is fast, Food is hot! My only gripe is, I wish there were more than 1 sauce.

Let's face it - the Twin Cities are not Memphis, North Carolina, St. Louis or Texas. BBQ here is not what you might find in those other places. But Baker's Ribs does bring a little Texas to this area. The lone franchise outside of the Dallas, TX area, it is the best in the Twin Cities. We especially love the... More

We stopped for lunch and ordered 3 chopped brisket sandwiches and sides of dirty rice, beans and coleslaw. The sandwiches were good but the sides were disappointing. The dirty rice was the best and it was just okay. The coleslaw was bland and the beans had a weird off taste. We will probably not go out of our way to... More

A friend of mine from Forest Lake recommended this place. I figure if he can travel all the way from there for BBQ I can go from South Mpls. OMG...it was amazing BBQ. The smoked ham, turkey and beef brisket are not to be missed. The ham was fully smoked, tender and delicious. The beef had a nice smoke ring... More
