We found this place while walking on the river walk; the gentleman greeted us warmly. However, it seemed a bit dingy. The food was pretty decent, quiet location. Overall a good experience.

Stopped in for a quick bite on our drive home from a weekend on the Oregon Coast, thanks to Yelp we found this fantastic little place. We were greeted by an ear to ear smile from what I assumed was the owner. His menu was simple and straight to the point, it pointed to some damn good bbq. We had... More

Can't miss if you like BarBQ. Generous portions, great prices, good seating, specials, room for kids to roam in the building, very nice owner, house cat... Cars everywhere. What else could you ask for?

The chicken, ribs and pulled pork sandwiches are EXCELLENT! The food tastes very home made. Don't judge this food, by it's location! I discovered this place by accident. My crew and I were hungry after our coastal trip, and all the other restaurants were full. We tried out this place, and got greeted by a cat (Restaurant pet?), and then... More

Forget about table linens, forget about table service, forget about fancy china - Rollin Thunder is all about BBQ! And Bruce absolutely does BBQ right! A great selection of meats are nicely complimented by hearty, fresh made sides - and all at extremely reasonable prices. I've tried them all - but always come back to my fave chicken breasts with...

We were strolling the river walk and looking for somewhere for lunch. My husband had been fancying ribs for the best part of a week and we saw this place and he was going no further. It is a real no nonsense rib shack. The guy (Bruce I think) was friendly and helpful. The ribs were great - my husband... More

We had lunch there. The food was great and reasonably priced. I have a pulled pork sandwich, potato salad and a soda for $7. It is not a fancy place but was clean and the guy running the place was very nice. I would go back again

How do you BBQ and smoke meat without either a smoker or BBQ pit? Not clean, liquid smoke and no view. If you like old air heads (BMW Motorcycles) old magazines and imitation BBQ this is the place.

I'm not sure how the health department allows this place to stay open. Against our better judgment we stayed and ate. I passed on the coleslaw since it wasn't cold. There was a cat wandering around on the tables.
