The best meats were the smoked turkey and dry ribs. Everything else including service is average. Glad we stopped but would not go out of way again.

I took a chance on stopping at this place as I was passing through. And, I am glad I did. Great people. Great barbeque. Great place. I will definitely stop again. The brisket is delicious and the pulled pork was excellent.

I've tried several things on menu. Most everything is good, the baked beans are my favorite thing on the menu. Nice to try in the fall when you can sit outside and not sweat too bad.

This is an annual stop for us during our Bristol event. Always friendly service, home style atmospher and great smoked ribs. If you are a rib person, this is a must stop eat.

The potato salad and baked beans were great. The waitress was pleasant and helpful. However, the pulled pork was quite dry. They have a number of very good sauces available and if you used enough sauce the meat was eventually moist enough to eat. Overall very good. I'll just choose a different meat selection next time. I would recommend Phil's... More

The pork ribs were really good too. The dream dog was super messy but really good. Food was ready super fast. It was our first visit but the cashier took... More

Good year in year out. I wish we could eat here more often. You must try the pork wings. It's a cut unique to Phil's. Everything is good.

A lot of these reviews speak poorly of the atmoshere and if you're looking for fine dining with clothe napkins, this place ain't for you!

We have eaten here several times and each time the pork has been delicious. We stopped getting the sandwiches because the buns fall apart. My husband loved the potato salad and we both liked the beans. The slaw is just average. The problem is if you have kids who want fries they won't get them. Our grandchildren didn't like the... More
