Great Barbeque, Pulled Pork and Chicken.....

Good Barbeque.It is a little bit of a haul from the city of Pittsburgh (about an hour or so), and worth the looooong drive...but overall the selection is good, and very tasty. Ordered several different BBQ options (country ribs, chicken and pulled pork), and they were all quite good. Also got the... read more

We stopped here for dinner after a day of tubing. Ribs so tender they fall off the bone. All of the sides were delicious especially the garlic mashed potatoes.

Drove by this place on the way to a girl scout camp. Ordering for the first time was a little intimidating as I didn't know if I was ordering to go or eating in or if there was a difference as I wasn't asked. My food was prepared for take-out anyway. I also misordered as I didn't understand the pricing... More

I love ribs and have had them in many different restaurants but these are by far the best ribs I've ever eaten. So much meat a half a rack could easily be a meal for two. A must place to go if your in the area.

My wife and I stopped there for some ribs. Tender, fall off the bone! We split a rack of ribs, baked beans, garlic potatoes, and potato salad. The sauce was very tasty. I was impressed with the potato salad. Not too much onion flavor which was refreshing. Some people over use onions. The garlic potatoes were very good. The baked... More

Stopped at Clem's on July 25, 2015 for lunch. I ordered a half rack of ribs with sides of baked beans and coleslaw, wife had a pulled pork sandwich with the same sides. First off, the ribs were not hot, just warm but they were well cooked. The pulled pork sandwich was generous with a huge amount of sauce but... More

Clem's has been around a long time, first in a very much smaller venue closer to Pittsburgh. The new restaurant is very nice and clean. The staff is always friendly and their barbecue sauce is wonderful. I usually buy a few jars to take home.

As the other reviews all mostly say the Ribs are fall off the bone and very tasty. More than enough food for one in the meals they have to choose from and the price is pretty good as well.
