Saw a review on trip advisor and thought we'd give it a try for lunch today. WOW........not only did we love it totally, but we'll have to adjust our plans so we can get back again before we leave town!

Had the beef brisket sandwich with was awesome, chili that was out of this world and cole slaw that was great and unique!

Restaurant is a bit hard to find but take the time to search it out and you won't be disappointed!

Self serve BBQ setting. Had the pork and brisket combo and enjoyed both. Warning - The chili has some kick to it! And they serve beer too in case you would like a cold one.

The eatery is located along south Cave Creek Road, just east of N Basin Rd, in a small shopping center. Additional parking in back. No frills, no fuss; a paper and plastic place with modest seats at cozy tables. Follow the etiquette: get in line, order your food and bevy, THEN sit down, either inside or outside. While sipping a brew, listen for the bell and your name so you can jump up to retrieve your food. The aromas live up to the BBQ. The ribs and brisket combos were better than the 1/2 chicken. Choose tasty fries, unique olive coleslaw or baked beans as sides bursting with flavor. Grab some extra BBQ sauce. The microbrew selection is plentiful and pairs well with the BBQ. Next visit, I'll give the pulled squash sandwich a try.

Our search for really good barbecue is over--slightly sweet, slightly vinegary, slightly spicy, slightly ketchupy--just perfect as far as I am concerned.
The Cave Creek location and 8 p.m. advertised closing mean planning ahead for those who live far from Cave Creek but easily accessible via I17 and the Carefree Highway.
My husband had the ribs and brisket, and I had the pulled chicken sandwich--both were excellent, and I really appreciated that the chicken was all white meat and carefully picked through--no gristle nor bone nor unwanted :) parts.
Also appreciated were the never-ending supply of napkins, plus the packets of handwipes on the handwipes.
Bryans's is definitely casual and reflective of old Cave Creek.
We also noticed that they do a LOT of take-out business as well!
We shall return!
