Great BBQ

The food is great,nice selection of sandwiches. It is better to take out, there are 3 or 4 kitchen tables for seating. But the food is very good

This is a modest little joint in Sun Prairie just off of 151. I had the pulled pork sandwich with Carolina Vinegar sauce, which was really good. They allow to you try all of their sauces ahead of time, all of which are really good which makes the decision very difficult. I am sucker for a good vinegar sauce though.... More

We ordered our dinner to go on a Friday night. This place came highly recommended by a local. Unfortunately, we were slightly let down by what we received. The ribs were extremely dry and chewy. They did not fall off the bone like good ribs should and they were cold. The corn was also dry; seems like it was sitting... More

Went with colleagues for lunch. Tried several of the sauces until I decided to try the apple sauce. Ordered the pulled pork. Huge portion, moist and flavorful. We were treated to a piece of sliced pork with their signature rub...delicious. And, we had a slice of chocolate covered bacon. Now, I didn’t think I would like it but dark chocolate... More

This is the best barbeque in Wisconsin. If you like alot of sauce on your sandwich, just make sure to ask for an extra sauce. I've loved all of the different sauces I've tried and the owner is super friendly! With the size of the sandwiches, you definitely get your money's worth...this is worth the stop if you're in the...

...but would get you shot in South Carolina. Got a pound of pulled pork. Sauce was pretty good, nice and thin like it should be. Meat was OK, seemed to be lacking something in the flavor department. I'll try it again for sure, maybe they just got a less than stellar pig that day.

We picked up takeout BBQ on a Saturday at 11, just as they opened. Dining/seating area is not a real option. Good variety of sauces available for sampling. Favorites were balsamic and red onions sauce and sweet Memphis blues sauce. We ordered two sandwiches: pulled pork and smoked chicken melt. Pulled pork was dry, bun was uninspired but portion was...

We made a return trip to Porktropolis on a Wednesday night for a late supper. The place was quiet. We chose sandwiches and one of the variety of about 15 BBQ sauces. Each came with a side--one of us got coleslaw, one the dill potato salad and one the fried potatoes. The sandwiches were huge. Mine was the beef brisket--more... More

Being from Texas, we were worried about what WI BBQ might be. We were pleasantly surprised. Very small unassuming place. The owner walked us through the menu and sampled the sauces. He even offered us some meat samples. It was all quite tasty.

This place is great. Little BBQ restaurant located off Hwy 151... and shares the building with an ammo shop. The BBQ was very good, they also do catering (pig roasts, etc). The owner was there to give us some advice on our selections and a 'sample'. They have several flavors of BBQ sauces to choose from, all in little sample... More
