“It's all good but the beans stole the show”
Reviewed July 3, 2013

My son and I stopped in here while out cruising around in the convertible on summer day. We decided to order the sampler which included Chicken, Ribs, Sausage and pulled pork. It also included two sides one of which was the bbq beans.

The quantities are generous and while we both love meat, we were not able to eat the shared sampler. The beans were out of the world.

We look forward to returning again.

“Unexpectedly great!”
Reviewed June 29, 2013

Decided to go for a motorcycle ride on a Saturday morning, and ended up in Amity around lunch time.

Had a great pulled pork sandwich with cole slaw, both were very good. Both indoor and outdoor dining, with shade umbrella's made for a pleasant outdoor lunch.

I'll definitely be back!


(They also do takeout, which I would take advantage of if I lived closer!)

“WOW! Great BBQ Farmer style!”
Reviewed June 12, 2013

What can we say. Very good BBQ. I have never seen pork ribs with so much meat, yet so perfectly smoked and lean. Pulled pull also perfect. Baked Beans very good and a real mix of bean types to make it special. Cole Slaw good. Peanuts on the table and floors....priceless! We will definitely go back as it is just down the hill from our home. What a surprise. Great place to dine in little old Amity! Take out business was brisk, so I can tell the locals have it down. They call in their order on the way home from working on the farm etc. FYI. HUGE Portion sizes. We are dining on the left overs all day today......

“If you think you've had the best BBQ beans, you haven't eaten here yet.”
Reviewed May 17, 2013

Peanuts on the table, shells on the floor, this small, casual, family-owned restaurant is a real treasure for Amity and worth the trip if you live elsewhere.

The beef brisket is fabulous, smoky and tender. Pulled pork is equally delightful. The white bean and chicken chili has just a little heat but the flavor is great.

You have not had barbeque beans until you've had these. Thee must be at least 6 different bean varieties in this dish with a smoky sweet sauce including meat bits and sausage. These are to die for.

The folks here will pack you a meal to go if you want to take it home and eat in your jammies. The service matches the food. Great addition to Yamhill county fare.

“Yummy BBQ”
Reviewed April 11, 2013

We have been to this local place several times and have never left disappointed. The chicken is moist, ribs fall off the bone, and the pork is fabulous. And the loaded mashed potatoes and baked beans - heavenly. Big servings. And my kids love that they can eat the peanuts and throw the shells on the floor.
