All hype and no delivery. Touted as a no miss, unfortunately on the night we visited everything did. A good BBQ joint focuses on BBQ a but Brooks wide menu is more family restaurant and all over the map. One highlight, very good service but you come for the food and it just wasn't that great. Average chicken which is... More

Brooks BBQ has been consistently great for many years. They offer tasty BBQ at its best, and now they even little their own sauce if you'd like to take it with you (which we did). If you're in the area, or visiting the Baseball Hall of Fame be sure to stop by Brooks and enjoy!

Here is a great family restaurant. I know it. I've eaten there many times before. But haven't been there for a long time. Maybe because it is closed Mondays, a day which I will be driving by. Maybe because it's opened Sundays. And Friday nights. Two times the parking lot is so full you can't get in; and if you... More

On a recommendation from my husbands co-worker, we drove the 17 miles away from our hotel to see what the rave was about. There are no reservations, first come first serve. The line seemed to move fairly quickly for a Saturday night. Salad bar needs a little bit more variety, but overall it was good. Barbequed chicken was very good... More

For years Brooks has been an occasional treat for my family. We all agreed that the last meal was not very good. Especially the macaroni, bean and coleslaw salads. They shouldn't mess with success.

Everyone in our party liked their food, but no one loved it. This is a very busy restaurant with what must be a very busy kitchen. If you're not expecting gourmet, it'll be fine. I personally found the grilled salmon to be adequate, and thankfully not overcooked. The portion was rather small however. "Baked" potatoes come wrapped in aluminum foil,... More

Listen..Brooks has good food..and reasonably priced..but it is nothing supreme..most of us make better BBQ in our own backyards. Way over hyped..almost zero dinning atmosphere..Oneonta is rich in quality dinning..spread your wings for some finer places in town to eat

Great restaurant - Great food - love their BBQ chicken and fudge brownie dessert! Loved the decor and the fact it was very spacious not crowded together. Staff was very friendly and helpful!
