there are not a lot of places to eat in Philipsburg and this is first place we tried. Food was average. I had a pulled pork sandwich and wife had same but in a wrap. Meat was dry nut good sauce. Sides of coleslaw and popato salad pretty good. Very clean place service good.

Having been to and giving this place excellent reviews two years ago I was very disappointed this time. While prices are the same or maybe higher, the scant amount of meat was a joke. It was all bun, almost no meat. My wife had the nachos and same story, lots of chips very little meat. We drove a long way... More

Great place to eat when craving BBQ. You get a ton of meat on the pulled pork sandwich, sauce is awesome--always ask for extra! Stop by the brewery for a beer and bring your drink with you!

Service was a bit slow, but the food was great, so worth it. Would.go back. Try the Nachos. The other sandwich looked good also.

The food was good. The kitchen itself is a little too exposed and not really efficiently run. Filling one order at a time while many are standing will ruin the business. We really enjoyed our lunch and hope improvements will be made.

We had planned on eating dinner at a different place, but after walking past here twice, the BBQ smell drew us in. I had the pulled pork sandwich and coleslaw, hubby had a half rack of ribs and the potato salad. The pulled pork was awesome. The meat was melt in your mouth good and the pickles and pickled onions... More

I have eaten in and taken out and was happy with all. The picture posted of the building is old. They have moved down the street into a much needed larger space. Phillipsburg is a nice stop, with plenty of interesting shops, restaurants, bars and a brewery in a historical setting.

I'm sorry, but this BBQ had no smokey flavor. I expect to SMELL a smokehouse before I get to the door. The pulled pork sandwich was unremarkable and the cole slaw seemed to be pre-packaged. The pulled chicken sandwich had gristle. The casual setting was fine, and ordering at the counter was not a problem. It was the only restaurant... More

This is great little BBQ place. When we were there they had just finished the lunch rush and were nearly out of ribs! I would recommend going early if you want to get in on some good ribs.

We did the carryout thing here after a day of fishing and were very pleased. We all got bbq sandwiches, mine was delicious pork piled high! I had coleslaw with it that was pretty basic. The sandwich was amazing! Friendly staff, reasonable prices!
