“Great for years”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2013

We brought our out of town friends to Gold Rush for lunch. As usual, the GR did not disappoint. I had the chopped pork platter with green beans and cucumber salad. Absolutely delicious! I also enjoy the sweet cornbread that comes with the meal. We have been fans of the GR for a number of years. We are never disappointed. Relaxed and casual atmosphere on the 41 bypass.

“Back Yard BBQ Nostalgia...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 29, 2013

go w/ carry out @ Gold Rush BBQ because wait time can be 45+ {and that should tell us all something. it IS worth the wait} . Prices very reasonable; portions more than adequate. Ppl
ARE especially attentive, good attitudes even when rushed {Tues just after sunset}. The Gold Rush isnt marked w/ bright lights & large signs & if you miss it just circle around & go back...you will be happy you did.

“Great Place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

The pulled pork sandwitch is great as is everything else. The poeple who work there are the nicest folk you could meet. The owners should be proud. And the spicy BBQ sauce is addictive. Love this place
