My wife and I along with another couple visited Bar-b-qsa after a day at the track. First things, first....... the smell alone will make your mouth water. The food was outstanding, great choices for everyone. Definitely one of the best BBQ places we've ever visited. The staff were friendly, and the owner came out to greet our table and converse....

I've been coming here for years and love the food. However, we were there on 14 August and the mosquitoes were so bad that we had to run in/out of the restaurant and got bit up constantly while outside. I understand outside, but INSIDE the restaurant was swarming with mosquitoes. My wife couldnt even take our son to the bathroom... More

Bar B QSA was suggested to me by my boss. We were glad to see the logo off of 87N because it was hard to find on google and other search and map engines (we love the name, but the dashes and asterisks might make a search more difficult). We saw the restaurant sign right away and as we made... More

We began to wonder if we had made a mistake when we noticed that no one else in the almost fully occupied dining area had ordered racks of ribs. We soon learned the error of our ways in having done so as our two orders of half platters of “Original” ribs @ $17.95 weren’t very meaty, and such meat as... More

We have loved this place for years, they truly make the best chicken. I miss the walk up window and the yellow bug lights. It was like an old time drive up restaurant, charming, fun, lighthearted, relaxing old time innocence. I know there was a trade, we now get to go year round but honestly we don't. Pjs was always...

BAR-B-QSA has a long Family tradition for excellent BBQ. Stop in any time of year now as they are open year round. I am partial to the Pulled Chicken on Texas Toast with hot and spicey (Buffalo styled) with Blue Cheese. They have BBQ sauce of several regional flavors that are homemade and pay homage to the taste of the... More

Our family of five plus our rescue pup enjoyed lunch on the way to Saranac Lake here at PJ's. We ate outside on a picnic bench since we had the dog with us, but the inside looked clean and new. My brisket was delicious. They have a variety of extra sauces that we enjoyed sampling. My son loves his pulled... More

Hadn't visited since a big remodel, revamp of restaurant. Excellent BBQ on several different styles. Excellent ribs and brisket. Had a new Shandy on draft, nice add to a great BBQ dinner. Really enjoyed Saratoga chips with cheese and bacon. We'll be back to try some different things!
