“The real deal”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2012

I had the Beef/Pork Rib combo and the wifey had the beef brisket. They gave me plenty of each animal and both were nice and smokey, which more than made up for the fact that while good, the sauces didn't blow me away. The beans were the star of the sides but the Potatoe (Dan Quayle spelling) Salad and Slaw were also just fine. Being a Corn Bread connoisseur, l thought their 'muffin' was dry (grillin' it's killin' it). My wife liked her brisket but l thought it wasn't as smokey as the ribs were.

To: Brushfire - it's good but there's room for improvement - don't grill the CawnBrey - work on a smokey, Memphis style (HINT of mustard) sauce - joint is a little too loud for folks to talk. And you might wind up BBQing your competition!

“Pretty good BBQ!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2012

We are partial to Sonny's BBQ out east, and Brushfire BBQ is pretty good.
Their portion sizes are a little SMALL for the price.
We like their many BBQ sauce choices. When they are busy it seems their
meat can get a little tough.
They also tend to get a little dirty and run out of TEA pretty fast. Finding it hard
to keep up with customer demand is their biggest problem.
MUSIC is TOO LOUD for a nice family get together!!!
The Food is good and the sauce is tasty..........worth going back for more.
