“Best BBQ ever!”
Reviewed November 9, 2010

Briquettes Smokehouse has the best ribs and pulled pork sandwiches ever! They don't put any sauce on the sandwich meat, so it gives you an opportunity to try their variety of made-in-house bbq sauces. It's a perfect place to stop, located between Cleveland and Erie, right off of Route 11 and easy to find. Great food at a great price!

“Outstanding barbeque!”
Reviewed June 5, 2010

I've eaten at Briquettes several times now. Consistently excellent food. The pulled pork, smoked chicken and especially the brisket are delicious, and they make their own sauces that range from mild to really hot and spicy. The St. Louis ribs are fall off the bone tender, with a wonderful dry rub and good, juicy flavor. Recently, I've had the smoked whitefish salad bowl with the house Italian dressing (they doctor up the standard restaurant variety with more garlic and vinegar - mmmm). A great summer lunch. Add some of their house made lemonade, some jalepeno cornbread or a bowl of their Brunswick Stew, and it's a feast for the palate and the senses.
