Had a great lunch at Brian's Bar-B-Que. The salad bar is extensive and the sides that come with any sandwich are plentiful.

Fabulous BBQ. Baby backs are best in town. Love the salad bar, especially the smoked chicken salad. The wait staff is friendly and eager to please. Always look forward to next visit.

Very good meal. Smoked turkey was the bomb! Buffet area was extremely crowded as there just was not enough space there but I understand why they did it the way they had to.

Since Thursday is all you can eat spare ribs, they are usually pretty busy. They could probably set up the outside seating area for you, but for a group that large, you really need to call them.
