If you want some great BBQ and BBQ sandwiches this is the place to go. The restaurant is small, so I typically get it to go but their BBQ sandwiches are amazing (sandwiches served on garlic bread). If you don't want the bread, you can just order their BBQ meat plates which are great as well. Their seasoned fries are... More

The food here was good. We just expected a little more of it considering we ordered the "hungry" portions. We dined in and enjoyed tasting the variety of sauces with smoked brisket. The mac n' cheese and deviled egg potato salad was fine, but the favorite side was our extra order of green beans.

Brush fire has the best BBQ in town. No, this is not Texas or KC or North Carolina. But I wouldn't want to eat Mexican food there either. You have to judge the food on its merits alone; and all their meats are good. Biggest issue I have is their sides. The fries are good and that's about it. All... More

Disappointing. The good -- service and creamy coleslaw. The bad -- pork barbecue sandwich on huge puffy white bread bun -- burned absolutely black, the sauces in goopy squeeze bottle in dirty paper beer bottle carriers, the "atmosphere," and the prices. I've been there twice -- the first time and the last time.

This has got to be the worse BBQ I have tasted. The brisket and sausage were dry and lacking flavor. The coleslaw was drenched in vinegar. I really don't see how this was voted best in Tucson!

The baby back ribs are good. I got a full rack the other night for take out and had 3 or 4 meals out of it. I love the big portions. The sides could be a bit bigger with the rack deal but I love it all the same.

Great food at reasonable prices. Lots of selections of meats. Would definitely come back again. I only ordered an appetizer but my husband ordered a full meal and we were both satisfied.

I enjoyed the combination plate of brisket and pork, my wife had the chicken. They were both good as were the side dishes.

Unassuming location...had a coworker take us here on a recent business trip. Overwhelming selections but tried the sampler and was impressed. Didn't need additional sauce flavor of the three selections was spot on. Will be back to try some others.

After an 8:00am round of golf at Starr Pass in Tucson we were in need of BBQ and beer. Our daughter's boyfriend suggested this unassuming spot in a strip mall. Small restaurant with a big menu with big flavors. We all had pulled pork with various levels of heat in our sauces, all really great in a tasty bun. We... More
