Driven past this place many times over the years heading to Rochester and never stopped. A gem of a place. Although they now have a larger dining area, we chose to sit and eat in the 'store' part, which was the original. Our food was fabulous with huge portions. You order at the counter and they bring it to your... More

We went there today for the first time. We were in Pepin, WI about lunch time and were looking for something different. I'd seen the sign driving from Alma one day and the sign stuck. We tried it and the claim was pretty much right on. Great Ribs!! Half a rack was enough for me. The baked beans were also... More

Big amount of food for the money. There 1/2 rack is larger that most full rack. Great Flavor. Baked Beans & Potato Salad is fantastic. You order at the counter and pay there then sit down and wait for the biggest surprise of your life. These Ribs where the best I ever had. you will not be disappointed.

Hubby and I took the motorcycle out for ride today and decided to try some bbq at j&J. I had the pulled pork wrap, he had the combo wrap. They were both excellent. There prices are very good and they have a wide assortment of root beers. Try the Tommy Knocker one it's different in a good way. Next time... More

After living in Memphis and enjoying great Bar-B-Que, I could not believe it when I happened accross J&J's in Nelson Wisconsin. Taking a Motorcycle tour up the Great River Road along the Mississippi, I could smell the smoke as I entered the town of Nelson and it made me stop. I had the the Carolina Pork & Rib plate and...

Small place that is amazing. They forgot our order but still worth 5 stars! Barbecue brisket sandwich was wonderful. Meat was very tender. Beans were tasty. Way too many root beer choices. They had great ice cream selection but way too full by that time. Spent $21 for 2 brisket sandwich baskets and 2 bottles root beers for lunch. DEFINITELY... More

This is a place quite local to me but it was my first ever visit. Definitely not my last! The setting is an old storefront that welcomes you in to an antique and collectibles shop which just happens to serve very fine BBQ food too. Service is super-friendly and very quick. From order to serve took minutes. That said, it... More

Great place for BBQ and very reasonable. They just finished a remodel and it has enhanced the dining experience. Service is really good and the food is better.

I have driven by this place for years and wondered what it was like. We finally stopped in during a trip to the National Eagle Center and we were very pleased with the experience. Very tasty BBQ. The pulled pork was quite good and the cheese steak sandwich is out of this world. They use their smoked beef brisket to... More

I have lived in Western Wisconsin all my life, and my wife and I first discovered this awesome BBQ joint last year at the Taste of Wabasha. The food is simply the best BBQ I have tasted in this part of the state. You can tell that there is more than just a good effort put into preparing your meal...it... More
