Stopped in after a long day of hiking, and got the brisket meal - comes with cornbread and two sides. I got the beans and the cole slaw. The beef brisket was nice - not too dry and with good flavor, and came with a decent amount of sweet sauce. The beans were my favorite side - and didn't taste... More

The owner is a really neat person, the bbq is his own personal concoction, and it is a good sides portion without the hefty price. I recommend the brisket. We moved away just over a year ago.

If you like good BBQ this is the place for you. What the place lacks in decor and upscale ambiance the food more than mkaes up for. We found the owner and the other patrons friendly and had a very pleasant and delicious. The sides of beans and slaw were good but the test of a BBQ restaurant is its'... More

If you go to Astoria for any reason, you must try this place. Located in an old boathouse right on the riverwalk trolley trestle and decorated with motorcycles, this restaurant was the highlight of our stay in Astoria. The owner (I wish I'd got his name) was friendly, funny, super accommodating and efficient. The food was fantastic. Meats (we had... More

It was 2 pm, we hadn't had lunch yet and then we saw the sign for BBQ. Not surprising we were the only customers in this quirky place. Lots of motorcycle and classic car pictures. The middle-aged guy that served us was nice and heaped the pulled pork on the hotdog bun sandwich. I tried the coleslaw side, my dining... More

Great BBQ at a great price. Owner Bruce is the real deal and a hell of a nice lad. Give his kitty Chairman Meow a pet or two or tree hundred!! (wink). Best lunch special around. Pulled pork sandwich with sides. Generous portions, great sauce, and solid value. He caters as well!!! Just like steeping into his den with a... More

Our family of 5 came to this BBQ place for the first time today. My husband is a huge fan of BBQ so we thought we'd give it a try. I am not familiar with the different types of ribs and asked the man behind the counter (the owner of all people) if I could see the ribs so I... More

My husband and I went down to Rolling Thunder Barbecue in Astoria, Oregon to check the place out and it was strangely empty with not one customer in sight. Wile we were their we had the owner show us what a full rack of baby back ribs looked liked and it was a lot of meat. We said that we... More

This is a very affordable family establishment with lunch specials every day. Delectable perfectly prepared beans, cornbread, cole slaw and other popular side dishes such as thenbeef brisket that falls apart on your fork, taste awakening sauces, then on to the smokey pork , and the perfectly prepared chicken. All that one could possibly imagine and that might expect to... More
