And not much smoke flavor coming thru. Not that it was not good - it was, but not real good. Fries - however - were very good if not excellent [as long as you like them salty]. Service good. Overall an average bbq place for the northeast, but an above average place overall.

Every time my Dad gets takeout here I don't get anything. I tried the ribs and the wings and they were disgusting. We went there to sit down and eat but the food was still horrible! Worst BBQ Ever!

My family & I went here for my birthday. We had fried pickles, buffalo wings & baby back ribs for appetizers and all were excellent. For dinner we had 3 Piggy Macs and a pulled pork quesadilla which were also outstanding. The Piggy Macs were a large bowl of pulled pork smothered with mac and cheese with bread crumbs on... More

off the beaten trail bbq was very good the pulled pork was perfect. The ribs fell off the bone. The baked beans rock. The bar is nice but gets crowd quickly on the weekends.

Billy Bob's is hands down the best BBQ in the Poughkeepsie area. The food is great, the menu has a wide variety of options from different meats and fish to salads which are surprisingly good in a meat-centric restaurant. They always bring a basket to the table of a selection of 4-5 different home made BBQ sauces so you can... More

How has this wonderful BBQ joint missed my radar before? Huge portions of perfectly smoked meat, generous side dishes, great service and reasonable prices make this place a winner! Not really impressive from the street but step inside and you are in a very nicely appointed dining area.......or step into the bar. Both were very accommodating and comfortable. The enormous...
