Had the baby back ribs. Meat was good not too fatty and no tallow flavor at all.. Very little smoke in the preparation. You may want to check if there are smoked and non smoked ribs. These ribs were juicy, tender but not smoked. They are finished on the grill. We got to the Bozeman location one half hour before... More

Just ate at this barbecue restaurant this week..I had the burnt end sandwich and chile cheese grits. The meat was cooked to perfection...smokey and tender..the grits are great but you must try the pickles...sweet and spicy hot but very addicting ... This is a must place if you like barbecue and in Bozeman..

We ordered a pound of BBQ and some bread and bratwurst form Bar 3 for a picnic lunch at the Museum of the Rockies. The service was outstanding and the guy was very friendly and informative. We loved the sauces and tried three different ones. Would eat here again.

I thought this Bar B Que place was a fast food restaurant (it has a drive through). We were looking for fast take-out so we could get home and get the baby in bed and decided to try it. There was one customer who told us without prompting that we walked into the right place. He was right. We got... More

As another reviewer indicated this is kind of a "hole in the wall" place. Small and rustic and even had a drive through, which worried me a bit. Never fear, the young man running the grill was friendly and the burnt ends sandwich and parmesan garlic mashed potatoes were delicious. Excellent smoked flavor and a good selection of sauces...from sweet... More

Having had the pleasure of eating at a Famous Daves BBQ in Tennessee, we were thrilled to find one in Bozeman! The building looked new and the interior was large and welcoming. Once seated, our waitress brought our drinks and menus. Now Daves offers a variety of meat products; however, we ordered a half slab of the original St. Louise... More

This place is great! The hot/spicy pickles by the soda fountain are terrific -- give 'em a try! Friendly staff, clean tables, but not fancy. The food was served hot and quickly; we were in and out in no time. The BBQ sauce was delicious. There are four kinds of sauce on the tables. Definitely worth a try!

I've eaten here several times and it's always GREAT!!! The guys who run it are really nice and fun! The brisket sandwich can't be beat! The sides are all good. It is a little spendy ($12 or so) but worth the price. The buns are good and the beef is even better. Quick, friendly service, free refills and pickles! Several... More
