We knew we were in for a treat when most of the folks that were waiting in line with us were locals! Line moves fast, don't be discouraged....but there is a take out window and lots of seating in the outside covered pavilion as well!

I grew up in Oneonta, and have been going here since I was a little kid (I'm 54 now). I remember the 1960s, when it was just a small place. Other than adding a few new items to their menu, very little has changed since then. Why mess with success? Plump, juicy BBQ chicken, cooked over an open charcoal grill... More

Stopped here on a day trip thru Oneonta. My fiancee had the BBQ Chicken and LOVED it! I had the Pulled Pork and it was fabulous!! I am still dreaming about it. Try their Ice Cream. The chocolate is so creamy and the mint chocolate chip is out of this world good! YUMMY

I grew up on Brooks BBQ so I always make a point of going there when visiting Oneonta. Always delicious whether dining in or taking out. Great for families.

We had seen an online video showing Rachel Ray eating here, so we decided to give it a try. Since we didn't know what they were best known for, we both selected a sampler platter. Mmmm, so much good smoked meat at a very reasonable price! Of the four (ribs, chicken, pork and brisket), the beef brisket was my favorite,... More

We didn't even have to wait very long in line for a Saturday night(although once seated, i could see that the wait was due to clearing tables and not because we were waiting for people to leave. Warm fresh bread was brought right away orders taken, drinks were on table when we returned from the salad bar. Chicken barbecue was... More

Went with my mother who is visiting. This place is packed Saturday night, but we snagged Barseats. Brianna does a great job and served us wonderfully! The food is just fantastic - from the warm bread loaves to the saladbar and the BBQ meats. Go by and enjoy!

Great food, ribs, chicken, onion rings, cole slaw. Very well-priced and nice porions. The restaurant was like stepping back into 1983, in a good way. Be sure to visit the guys working the smoker in the adjacent building. We'll be back.

My wife and I were in Oneonta for a wedding. After visiting Cooperstown most of the day on Sunday, we returned to Oneonta and went straight to Brooks House of Bar-B-Q for dinner. A local policeman had actually suggested that we eat there if we had the time. We arrived at approximately 5:45 PM and were surprised to see that... More

We ate here last night on the recommendation of our hotel staff and Trip Advisor, it was late when we arrived 8:00pm and I am sure the food had been I warming trays for a while. The only thing that saved it was a limited but very fresh salad bar and the on table hot sauce that gave my BBQ... More
