Great place for smoked ribs

Excellent large smoked ribs, soft and tender. Really good sauces. Pulled pork very tender and well smoked. My wife had the chicken. Very good and generous portion. Really liked the Mac n cheese and the red potato salad.

This place specializes in smoked goodness. We tried almost everything on the menu and it was all excellent. 2 blocks from the Silver Cloud Hotel. Supple!!

My wife and I have looked for good bbq close to home and I think we finally found it. We had ribs and they were tender, meaty, and flavorful. I had the baked bean side that was good as was the mac & cheese my wife had. We've been bummed because Bonepile in Depoe Bay recently shut down. Never could... More

If you like authentic slow cooked BBQ you will love this place. We spent almost 10 years in Memphis and know good BBQ. Both my wife and I had the sampler plate. Ample portions for the price. The ribs were meaty, lean and smoked to perfection. The pork sandwich was very tasty and free of gristle or fat. The beef... More

I enjoyed my visit to Slabtown BBQ and the food was good. I had the pork ribs and the meat fell off of the bone indicating a quality BBQ. The flavor of the meat was very good and you could eat it on its own. However, the Texas Heat sauce that I had, while flavorful, was not even warm. It... More

The pulled pork sandwich is special. You can tell immediatly that the chef takes pride in his smoking. My grandson had the brisket,whiich was equally great. If you love BBQ this is your place.

Slabtown Ribs & BBQ makes a tasty and perfect pulled pork sandwich. Best to order it with the Kansas City BBQ sauce. The restaurant occupies a narrow space. There is an open door in the wall to an adjoining bar, which is shared, once again through an open door in the wall to Acapulco's Gold mexican restaurant. If you sit... More

Stopped for lunch at this place and we got the pulled pork sandwich. The service was great and quick, but the food was just okay. I have had b-b-q in many areas and many states. This one had no spark to it, even when using the spicy sauce. If you're in the area, you might consider trying it, but otherwise,... More
