My wife is from Memphis and we both know BBQ. This wasn't even on the radar. The closest thing to pulled pork on the menu was the pork sandwich minus the bun. What we got looked suspiciously like sixty cents worth of deli pork slices marinated in sauce and a Dixie cup of beans. Very underwhelming. Admittedly, the staff were... More

We took a nice break from the hectic I-90 traffic and found this first restaurant at the first off-ramp. It suited our needs and we were pleasantly surprised to find a very good BBQ place in Cle Elum. We were actually looking for another place that turned out to be closed on Sundays, so this was our second choice and... More

I ordered a bbq pork sandwich, it came with a little cup of coleslaw that was roughly chopped. The BBQ pork sandwich, consisted of thinly sliced pork very over cooked and dry,old, with some kind of bottled sauce on it, way too much sugar in the sauce. Did not detect spice. Two bites and I was ready to go. wasted... More

I rarely order ribs in a restaurant - even a BBQ joint - because they rarely meet my expectations of being big, meaty, well-cooked and perfectly sauced, but I will be going back and ordering a lot more ribs at the Homestead in Cle Elum. On a recent afternoon we both ordered the Beef/Pork/Chicken Combo meals and were delighted with... More

Food was good. serving sizes were good. the staff was friendly, but some didnt really seem like they wanted to be there. I would rate this in the same boat as Famous Daves.

I wanted to eat some of their excellent ribs and it was winter and they were closed. They should be opened all year around. winter comes, there are the skiers, snow mobilers and hunters that come along and would like to have some fine cooked ribs.

We stopped for lunch and were glad we did. My husband had the BBQ beef sandwich and macaroni salad and enjoyed both. I had the turkey croissant with a side salad and it was great. We will definitely eat here again when we pass through Cle Elum...a clean, quick, and tasty spot for lunch.

Good food, clean restaurant and bathrooms, nice atmosphere, and great desserts. Better than any other place in the area. Hours vary depending on the time of year, so check it out.
