After having driven from Florida two days before I wasn't really thrilled to get back into the car for another 45 minutes just to eat BBQ. She insisted it was the best BBQ she had ever eat and it would be worth my while and aching butt muscles. She was right. It was good. I just wish it was a... More

You have to get a pulled pork sandwich with pepper jack cheese and extra sauce. The rids and chicken is very good also.

My husband always brags about how good Clem's is...... Well, he was correct. The teenagers loved it. The sides dishes were a bonus also. We will definitely make him take us with him next time.

Stopped in there on my way to the Johnstown Thunder in the Valley. Excellent BBQ ! Prices are reasonable, and a good value. 1/4 ribs, 1lb pulled pork, 1 lb Cole slaw, 1lb of potato salad, and a drink... all for $15.00. Can't beat that ! It's a cafeteria type eatery. Order what you want, then carry it to your... More

How could a BBQ place go wrong with a pig on the roof, so that drew us in. The Cafe was very clean and ran through the customers in a timely fashion going through a cafeteria type line to order your food but it worked very well 2 of us selected the 1/2 rack of ribs and 1/4 lb pulled... More

We have been regular customers of Clem's for so long that we remember it when it was located miles down the road as a roadside stop. In order to satisfy its expanding crowds, it has been no surprise for us to witness its expansion each time. Eat inside or eat outside; just don't miss this special experience. And most of... More

This place only serves boiled meat mislabeled as barbecue. What's worse is they just smother it with a ketchup based BBQ sauce.

The meat just fell off the bone and loved the sauce..plenty of choices. Would definitely be going back again. Quick service and great little place just off the main road near to everything.

My husband really loved the ribs, by far his favorite. We tried the chicken, pulled pork and coleslaw, all were fine. I would have liked to have seen brisket on the menu but it isn't. I would also have liked to have a choice of BBQ sauce. The BBQ sauce was fine but very sweet and mild, I would have... More

Friends have raved about Clem's for years, so I gave it a try. It's mediocre BBQ and sides. Pulled pork wasn't at all smoky, the sauce was bland. The beans tasted like they were straight from the can. Sweet potato pie appeared to be mass produced. Curiosity satisfied.
