“Hard to Find...but Worth the Search”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2012

"Courtyard" means street in the middle of the block...sort of an alley running parallel to Xiaoyun Lu. Place was busy on a Tuesday night. Staff & management were very friendly, the BBQ pork, beans, and coleslaw were all very good. The only disappointment was the small corn muffin...not really a good down home cornbread. The draft beer selection was very good. I especially enjoyed the Slow Boat Mango IPA (very fresh, only slightly hopped, and just a hint of the Mango). Give them a try!!

“Down home southern style menu”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2012

The owner of the restaurant does a great job promoting this very popular eatery. Hours are 11:00 AM to 10:00 Pm. We arrived after 12:00 and had to wait for an outside table. This establishment will have a difficult time seating patrons as colder weather approaches. There is a super-cool attitude here. Baked goods come from"Bread of Life Bakery". This is an organization for disabled adults who grew up in orphanages. A great cause.

“A taste of home”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2012

I'm from North Carolina and loved pulled pork BBQ. This is great stuff, authentic, and the best in Beijing. Also, it's the only place in BJ that I have found fried okra. A great selection of beers and liquors, plus they always show silent movies along with some great music.

Casual atmosphere. Do try the pulled pork and spare ribs.
The hot dogs n burgers are also quite awesome.

“One of Beijing's best”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2012

Small place that doesn't try to be anything it is not, rare for a foreign restaurant in China in itself, Home Plate BBQ is a meat juggernaut that has never disapointed me and I don't know how it ever will
I always order half brisket, half pulled pork with two sides which ia amazing for under 70yuan, desserts are there which is another China rarity (although getting better) but the service is the key, these guys should go round and tutor some other restaurants in China, absolutely brilliant and always with a smile, despite my Shuangjing location I will continue to venture up after work as much as I can!
