One of my favorite BBQ places is Brooks. I have tried a lot of different foods but continue to order the sampler. Be prepared for a wait it is always busy but you will be glad you waited. You can always order and eat at the covered picnic area or have a take out order. You will probably have BBQ... More

Since I was a young boy visiting the New York State fair in Syracuse, the smell of Brooks BBQ has enticed me. Now I live in the city where Brooks can be visited all year. Although they serve good versions of other barbecue, it's the State Fair style BBQ chicken that this place is famous for. One of the most... More

Lines move fast. Salad bar leaves little to be desired; but they do know how to make BBQ chicken. It was amazing. Stay away from the pulled pork-it is too sweet.

I'm sure it's just a matter of taste, but I didn't like their BBQ sauce AT ALL. The chicken was delicious by itself, cooked perfectly but the sauce didn't do it any justice. I did live in the south for a long time, and I prefer a sweeter smokier sauce, but everything else we had was very good. The coleslaw... More

Food was not what I expected from reading all the reviews. I had the ribs, chicken and bake beans. The ribs were very good, the chicken was ok and the bake beans taste like bland pork N beans..

Great place to eat. My family goes a few times a year and we are never disappointed. We buy the Brook's BBQ sauces and rubs at the gift shop to use at home throughout the year. Friendly staff and a nice place to take kids with the small playground with wooden vehicles to play on.

We eat here at least 6 times a year as we travel between northern NY and north-central PA. This is THE place for great BBQ, salads, soups. Take out too. Don't miss it.
