Great meat and good service The only but is that you have to eat in paper plates and plastic cutely. A very western food Really enjoyed it

My husband smokes excellent barbecue and we have amazing places in Chicago. However...this place is the bomb! We loved our pork sandwich, brisket, sausage, beans, and corn salad. Some of the best food of our trip!

Fantastic! Much better than the other place we tried. Pork melts off the bones. They also knew what to do for food allergies and were super nice and accommodating. Highly recommend! Wish I’d found them the first night we were here.

We ate at this restaurant this evening and I have to give this the highest rating of any restaurant that we have ever reviewed and that is out of 100s of reviews across several states. The barbecued beef and barbecued turkey was excellent. A number...of people around us were enjoying ribs and pulled pork as well. Sides of beans. Coleslaw and a unique corn cold salad were also good. Highly highly recommended. Service was provided with a smile. Come early as it fills up quickly!More

OK, the lines were ridiculous, presumably because it was the night of the race that was in town and there were a couple thousand runners and their families that were famished...that being said, we tried to call in an order and that was a no-go....Husband was kind and went and stood in line for 30min to make a take out order (which they add a surcharge to by the way). Turkey and ribs were sold out by 7p. We had pulled pork and brisket, a pound each which was more than enough for 4 adults. We ordered a pint of each of the sides which also fed us all sufficiently. I cannot say enough good about the brisket. It really was to die for. Pulled pork was fine but not earth shattering. The corn casserole was fabulous, which I had the recipe. The beans were meaty and the mac and cheese was over the top cheesy. The cole slaw was also fabulous. This really was amazing food, especially for such a small town. Highly recommendMore

The pulled pork was delicious. The staff was friendly and efficient. I would recommend going early as they run out of food quickly.

Best BBQ that I’ve ever eaten! It’s a simple no frills place with amazing food. We had ribs & brisket with Mac & cheese, slaw, and corn salad. Everything was delicious!

Based on TA reviews and its #1 ranking in West Yellowstone we ate here. Both brisket and pulled pork were tasty with lots of smoke taste. They do not serve meals, only meat by the pound and sides by the oz. They did have a...meat sandwich, but everything else is sold in bulk. We had slaw and beans. Both were below average. Nothing fried was available-- no fries, o-rings, hush puppies. Prices were high, even for Tourists spot. No service, everything self serve on cheap paper plates. Wish we went to Beartooth BBQ. Liked their menu much better.More

We have been there 3 times, food was always excellent (Ribs, Pork, Brisket) They have a very simple menu and focus only on hommade bbq, but the food is absolutely terrific.

We stumbled across this BBQ restaurant by chance one night while we were walking around town and just had to try it. I’m glad we did! Some of the most amazing macaroni and cheese I’ve ever had!! Their brisket, Cole slaw and buffalo sausages were...fantastic as well. Highly recommend!!More

We stopped by the restaurant after spending an entire day in Yellowstone Park, so this was kind of a late lunch. We ordered brisket sandwiches, and they were fantastic. All pricing was a la carte, so any sides cost extra. Still, I think it was...a good value for the quality of meal we had. We would definitely go back again and highly recommend their food and service.More

Visited tonight after a long day exploring Yellowstone and did it hit the spot! The brisket is so tender and flavorful and the Mac and cheese might be the best I've ever had. You have to try!!!

Just amazing! The ribs are fantastic, and the brisket was also great! Don’t let the line fool you either. It goes fast and while the place looks small, there is plenty of seating…even outside. Love the extra pickles too!

This place has fast great service. You walk through a line and order what you want and they have it ready for you by the time you get to checkout. We tried a little bit of everything and it was all delicious
