My wife and I wanted BBQ and had seen the reviews on this place so we decided to try it out. We went on a Friday and were glad we did, they are closed on Saturdays and we would have missed out on some great smoke beef and ribs. The sauce was tangy and was some of the best we... More

Good atmosphere for a bbq restaurant. The service was good, better than most restaurants in the Carlsbad area. The brisket was cooked very well and had good flavor. Priced fair. Over all a good value and experience!

The restaurant had a nice atmosphere. The food was great. Our waiter was Joseph. He made the restaurant. His attitude and friendly welcoming smile was great. We were visiting and he ended the night great!

This was a good option for a late lunch after our visit to the caverns. I normally would not have tried brisket, but so many reviewers mentioned it, I just had to try it. I was not disappointed - it was very tender! Service was great also.

We didn't exactly come to Carlsbad for the food, but thought that BBQ might be a good option. Red Chimney was easy to find and looked OK so we went for it. I was a little concerned about the menu when I noticed that there wasn't an option for choosing how many ribs we wanted. We usually just split a... More

We 3 had the brisket, the green chile cheeseburger, and the juicy pork entrees. Meals came pretty fast, bread was so-so, but better with honey. We had to ask for more sauce, it comes in a small pitcher. We weren't given any choice of sauces, don't know if there are more than the 1 kind. Owners came around to ask... More
