I love this place. Their menu is excellent, their BBQ is outstanding to the point I order all their sauces online just to have on hand. All reasonably priced. You can smell this place from thr thruway. Have eaten there many times and have never been disappointed. I now live in NC, land of BBQ, and still yearn for Brooks.

I ve been a customer since 1971 and have always ordered the BBQ half chicken. It is absolutely the best I ve ever had without a doubt. The salad bar always has fresh ingredients and the dessert menu is extensive. I recommend the coconut cream pie. After dinner I usually order a couple of half chickens to go.

Have heard a lot about Brooks BBQ and was fortunate enough to be in Oneonta so my friend and I went. The food was delicious, the bread was warm and wonderful. We both ordered the chicken and ribs combo. The chicken was HOT, it must have come right off the grill, but not too hot to be able to eat... More

Great barbecue; large portions and excellent quality food. The chicken just tore off the bones and was so most. And the barbecue sauce was exceptional. We almost went back for dinner the next night to have chicken and biscuits. We bought the barbecue sauce and chicken sauce to try to replicate the taste at home.

This is a good place to have a cheap meal - the prices are really almost unbelievable. The chicken is quite good, but other dishes are ordinary at best. Our view is that it fills the bill for a decent meal, but it's not a thrill, despite the hype about the bar-b-q. There is also something of a right-wing atmosphere... More

A must stop for any lover of great BBQ. A well know popular spot in Oneonta. I had the ribs and they were very, very good. However, be advised in advance///no beer sold here.

The food at Brooks is really good. They have a good selection on their menu and it is very reasonably priced. Their Bar B Que sauce is so good I always keep a bottle in my fridge. It is good on anything. Unfortunately, the place has very little ambiance so we go there just for the food.

My family & I have been coming here for years.I always get the chicken, (that's what Brook's is known for). It is always good. If you're looking for a fancy place with linen napkins, this isn't the place for you. It is an old fashion atmosphere with good service, good food, & great prices. I have never had bad food... More

All we have been hearing about is that you have to go to Brooks for the best BBQ, well in my humble opinion it ain't so. When I go to a BBQ joint I expect that warm smell of wood burning, mixed with the aroma of cooking meats. Not here. This is a generic joint, no atmosphere, no aromas nothing.... More

We were visiting the area and thought about going to an old time favorite but unfortunately this one has not gotten better with age. After standing in line for about 45 minutes (at 3:45pm), we were seated and were really looking forward to our BBQ. The waitress brought over our loaf of bread and we visited the salad bar which...
