Great food wonderful service by a young lady a senior at central. The BBQ was more than we could eat. Plenty left over for lunches. And prices are reasonable. Can't wait to go back and have regular old steak med rare. Probably at rodeo time. We'll see how that goes.

We loved the service and food here. Pulled pork and brisket were very tasty. Great smoky flavor, homemade sides and cornbread. I wish we were able to save room for the dessert, they sounded delicious.

The BBQ sauce was great along with the fixings but the meat tasted like it had been under-reaheated from the previous day or days! If you get their BBQ that is smoked and cooked all in... More

For years we stopped at fast food in Ellensburg only because we didn't know about the BBQ at Rodeo City. The corn bread alone is worth the stop.

I ordered a Rib Eye steak and they served me a Top Sirloin. Never went back again. My friend ordered the full rack of Baby Back ribs and he received like 6 ribs. How is that a full rack? Stay away from this place!

This is a true BBQ restaurant. The decor is spot on for the theme, the staff is very friendly and the food came amazingly fast. I was very pleased with the quality of the food and the price of the meals. I've been to this restaurant many times and they are consistently good. I highly recommend.

How does this place stay open and why do people come? My whole group thought it was the worst BBQ food ever and so expensive! The only thing they have going for them is their cornbread and the atmosphere. I say pop your head in to peek And head elsewhere to eAt. Sorry rodeo city but you need to change... More

First time eating here while visiting my daughter. Everyone in my group had a different entrée and each was excellent. Come here hungry!. The food is wonderful and the portions are generous. I would normally leave some on my plate; but I just couldn't. BBQ pulled pork, dinner roll, sweet potato fries, baked beans...... sweet tea was even done right... More

This is a very cute western themed bbq place with really good food! My whole family loved their meals and the sweet tea served in the cowboy boot glass was fun and very tasty. Great cornbread and combo meals. Service was friendly and prompt. I would highly recommend.
