This was recommended by the staff at the hotel we stayed at. Had the ribs and tri-tip combo, came with two sides. I had the greens, and mac and cheese. The ribs were so moist and tender that the meat just slid off the bone, and the tri-tip you didn't need to cut with a knife. The Texas sauce was... More

We are from Texas so we are used to having bbq on every corner so it took some research to find a BBQ place here. It was really good. We both enjoyed it. The sauce wasn't my favorite but we enjoyed the meat and sides. Very tender.

Stopped in because of the reviews on TripAdvisor & it was really close to the Silvercloud Inn. Had the daily special---tasty & fast; generous portion of beef ribs; potato salad was average; sweet tea wasn't (for me) but server quickly made drink change. The only thing that would make it better would be delivery. ☺ PS---loved the history lesson on... More

My wife and I have looked for good bbq close to home and I think we finally found it. We had ribs and they were tender, meaty, and flavorful. I had the baked bean side that was good as was the mac & cheese my wife had. We've been bummed because Bonepile in Depoe Bay recently shut down. Never could... More

If you like authentic slow cooked BBQ you will love this place. We spent almost 10 years in Memphis and know good BBQ. Both my wife and I had the sampler plate. Ample portions for the price. The ribs were meaty, lean and smoked to perfection. The pork sandwich was very tasty and free of gristle or fat. The beef... More
