Texas Style! Yum!

I lived in southeast Texas for 5 years and Pete's is the closest that I can find to Texas style BBQ after living in the Seattle area since 1987.

If there is one thing I hate about this area it's the fact NO ONE seems to get BBQ right at least since 3 Pigs in Federal Way closed way back when. I dunno why that is but just seems to be the way it is around here. BBQ Petes is as close as I've seen to actually getting BBQ... More

Went here with our son who works close by. Their food is great! The sauces are wonderful and served hot. We had the "No name sandwich" and it was perfect. Baked beans and a cornbread muffin were our sides. I wish I could bake corn muffins like these! Would highly recommend this place. Located in the warehouse area of Kent... More

My family had the beef brisket and we all came away very satisfied. It's a casual setting with long picnic tables and benches. The food was surprisingly good - my mouth is watering just thinking about it.

Excellent barbeque at this place. Our group had brisket, pulled pork and ribs. All of them were at least very good. The sauces here are the real stars. they range from mild to hot and all are great. even the side of beans and cole slaw would rate very good. Free ice cream tops off a very good meal.

Had lunch at a good BBQ joint in Kent Washington. This is a real BBQ place with solid wood bench tables and good mouth watering meats. A nice change of pace for a city known for it's seafood. A bit pricey, but no complaints about the food, service or atmosphere.

BBQ Pete's is what you might expect in a BBQ restaurant. The meat is smoky and stands on its own with needing sauce, but the sauces compliment the meats well. You can dine in- or out-doors and don't forget to grab a free soft-serve before you leave.
