Best ribs in Fairbanks

Best BBQ in Fairbanks. The ribs are great and sell out daily. Go early or you might not get what you want. Don’t let the location fool you, the food is great. We always get our food to go and have never had a bad meal from Bad 2 Da Bone.

Hi sdooooo27, thank you for taking the time to review our business. I'm sorry you had a poor experience recently. I can assure you that our meat is always slow smoked. We would love for you to stop back by and talk to the owner so he can make it right with you. We appreciate your feedback. More

I've had better brisket, but it was pretty good. The pulled pork was well above average. Good selection of sauces and sides. Best fas station food you'll ever find.

This small BBQ joint inside a gas station is one of Fairbanks' best kept secrets. The owner/grillmaster really knows what he is doing. EVERYTHING is delicious; you won't be disappointed by anything you order. My favorite is the pulled pork, but I like everything else they offer. There are some BBQ places where the chef has won awards in BBQ... More

The baby back ribs fall off the bone. Pulled pork is always juicy with the perfect amount of smoke. The vinegar base sauce is my favorite with the perfect amount of spice. Must try the loaded fries with your choice of brisket, pulled pork, or baby back rib meat. It's a must try.

The ribs are mouth watering and fall off the bone! The vinegar and sweet and tangy sauce are the best and loaded fries with brisket goes best with the ribs! The staff were very friendly and provide excellent customer service. You can't go wrong with any thing here.

I went in for my usual favorite brisket sandwich. I decided to switch it up and try the loaded fries. WOW fries covered with hot cheese and then brisket on top of that!! I added some jalapeno's and had a flavor explosion in my mouth. I also tried a small order of chili and YUMMY!!! I will be back for... More

I love some good Barbecue. Maybe a little too much. This was not good Barbecue. Had to take the food to-go because the setting is...well its a gas station. Their ribs must be good because the young lady at the counter mentioned that they were out of them about 17 times. The food was cold and the sauces bland. The... More

The barbecue here is decent, probably one of the better barbecue places in Fairbanks. But the "restaurant" is a gas station/convenience store. Very limited choices on the menu, but what was there was very tasty.
