This place grows on you as the BBQ pork and chicken are awesome. Better grab the corn bread and the BBQ beans. They offer bulk purchases, eat in and take out. Cool place and always large portions. PS the Mac and cheese is smoked deliciously good.

I've been to LD's twice now -- once a dine in and once for carry out. Although small, I loved the big long table that just said "BBQ joint!!" A friend and I shared the combo platter -- sausage, chicken, ribs and brisket. We had one vegetarian in our group and she found the mac 'n cheese excellent. The next... More

I am a serious lover of BBQ. I've been to every BBQ joint in SE Wisconsin and NE Illinois. I've been to BBQ cook-offs and competitions and none compare to LD's. NONE! Every time I go somewhere else to try there BBQ I'm displeased because I could have just gone to LD's and got the best. I will still try... More

We go at least once a month for a sandwich. The servings are huge and the price is right. The side of baked beans is the best and the corn bread is great. Everything on the menu is good. They even can cater your next event. They do have a small inside seating but we take ours home.

Tasty, delicious, smokey meats! The best pulled pork around from the "local guy!". I highly recommend stopping in for lunch or taking home a lb or 2 of meat for dinner;

LD's BBQ is a place you must not pass up. You are able to see the smoker in the back and realized this is the real deal. Seating is located within the BP gas station and outside. The smoked chicken sandwich was exceptional. The chicken was smoked to perfection and very moist. Not a dry piece in it. The flavor... More

Odd place to find excellent BBQ attached to an Amoco gas station. Very little seating inside so I would suggest this is more 'BBQ To-Go' than a sit down meal. Despite that, the food was AWESOME!!! They should consider getting a real building.

We ordered 6 pounds of BBQ Pulled Pork for take out. It was wonderful! Their sauces were also awesome.

Here is a place you should be trying. The BBQ comes in many forms and favors of sauce including a spicy option. The brisket is tender good, large portions and always great service. The banana pudding and corn bread is also a great addition to their main foods. You can do sandwiches, dinners all of which comes with side options... More

I have been here quite a few times. Each time I have been very happy. The food is great! All of it. It can get busy during the dinner time rush but it is worth it.

Thank Chris G
