Great BBQ

It's hard to find good BBQ but this place has it nailed! Great taste and large portions, and I like the variety of sauces available at the table to mix it up!

I brought a group of 13 high school kids to this restaurant very close to closing time. I think the guys behind the counter were a little surprised but they handled it great. The dining room is a little small but was perfect for our group. The kids had a great time and no one complained about the food or... More

Nothing like the good reviews about the food! We didn't like it at all! The St. Louis ribs weren't soft and tender the taste was medium but noting special, the mash has a strange tast! I even questioning if it was good to eat it. Also the entourage wasn't cosy at all! For the price you pay they have to... More

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
