“Disorganized, Average Food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2011

As we entered the door, there were a couple families waiting for tables. There was no greeter to tell us to wait or take our name. The waitresses were all busy, and to wait you had to stand right next to families eating at their tables. There is nothing more uncomfortable, when you are eating and someone is bumped next to your table watching you eat. As other customers came into the restaurant, they asked us what was going on. After 15 minutes, waitresses were cleaning tables, and trying to get people seated. When we finished eating, some people were going up to the register to pay, and others gave their waitresses their cards. Not sure what we were suppose to do. Looking around the restaurant, no one seemed to be the manager, nor was anyone over the age of 25.

An easy fix: Have someone take names, ask people to wait outside where there is a couple places to sit against the building, then call names when ready.

Food was average.

“Great barbecue place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2011

Everbody loved this place. The ribs looked great, but were a little pricey, so I had the pulled pork and brisket. They were both realy good. They also had a pulled brisket sandwich that was really good. Highly recommend this place for meat eaters.

“Great Place for Takeout”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2011

Beartooth BBQ does not have a great deal of athmosphere but what BBQ joint does. It got crowded on a Thursday in June about 6PM so we ordered takeout to enjoy in our hotel room. The pulled pork is rated 'great' by my very selective wife, the pulled brisket of beef was good/great, tghe 1/2 rack of ribs was ok/average and the cheese grits were 'interesting'. Prices were what you would expect in a tourist town with limited selections. If you are on the low end of a budget you might want to look around at other places.

“Good BBQ cold beer attentive service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2011 via mobile

Decided to give them a shot and wasn't disappointed. Wife had pulled chicken $16 and I the 2 meat combo, pulled beef and pulled pork$18. Green salad was great with homemade blue cheese on the side. Beer was ice cold! We were seated promptly brought drinks and order taken. Food was warm enough but not hot. Meat was a bit dry but this is smoked meat and the sauce is on the table, hot and regular. Total bill $60 with tip not bad especially considering the location. It was a nice happy meal!

“Fabulous, REAL LOW & SLOW BBQ!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2011

Had Pulled pork sandwich and husband had sliced brisket sandwich and it was awesome. They have a mild and spicy sauce and both are great (mild for pork & spicy for the brisket). We are what you would call some "BBQ snobs that are not easily impressed" and will definately go back when we are in the area...we even got some sauce to use at home (we usually make our own, it was that good).
