The Kitchen Sink Breakfast Burrito is huge and delicious - mine was with carnitas. Had plenty for both of us to heat for breakfast the next day in our hotel. My husband had the monte cristo french toast...he loved it. Did I mention HUGE portions?! We ate outside which was nice. Kelly was our waitress and she helped us with... More

Nothing special. BBQ is pretty good. What is terrible is the wait time for food. We tried this place out a few times. We thought the long wait was due to the crowd. Wrong. We were one of 3 tables there and ordered nachos to share. It took 45 minutes!!!!!! To make and bring us our nachos. Mind you, it's... More

We were here for a conference and decided to visit. The food was amazing. Fresh and hot. The server went out of her way to make sure my meat was lean, even brining me an additional serving because she noticed it was fatty. The service was great!

These guys know how to cook bar-b-q. I am from a NC family that prides themselves in multiple generations of cooking bar-b-q & Piggyback exceeded all my expectations. Was honestly as good as I have ever purchased in a restaurant. Also, definitely try the brisket chili. Outside seating with views of the mountains topped of a great eating experience.

Food was amazing and the service even better. The best pulled pork I have ever had and as a side I had the brisket chili which also left me wanting to come back another time for more. Nothing fancy here, just amazing food and service.

I loved this place. Great BBQ and the friendliest most helpful waitress - outside picnic tables as well as inside seating. We sat outside. I had a pulled chicken sandwich and the potato salad. Portions were generous and quite tasty. Each table had bottles of 3 different BBQ sauces. Maybe it was because we were on vacation that it all... More

Ordered food to go because we were exhausted from our 15 hour drive. Ordered in restaurant and took 30 plus minutes to get food. There was only about 3 other groups of people there so food should not have taken that long to get. Only one cook in kitchen. We went around 3 pm so expected food to be quick.... More

Had the barbecue salad. Salad was nothing more than mixed greens, grated cheese, some chopped red onions and not a lot of meat. Was expensive I thought for what we got. Ok but not great.

Is a must stop when visiting Whitefish! We ate outside where being from Kansas, that was a rarity. Got there late and the service was friendly. Food was very good! Had a pulled pork sandwich with sweet potato buffalo chips and a Huckleberry soda! Sweet potato buffalo chips were served with an amazing dipping sauce! Go there!
