“Great sandwiches and fair prices”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 16, 2012

This place has a great following and I can see why. I go there for impromtu lunch meetings and service is quick and food is tasty. Always go for the pulled port BBQ and slaw. Second favorite is the Cuban and potato salad. Great for MSU tailgaters too!

“Best BarBQ on Flatbread”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 20, 2012 via mobile

First of all they serve BarBQ pulled pork, beef and chicken. Meats smoked on site. They also have come up with some pretty good salads. I frequent this place for an informal lunch or a quick dinner. My teenage boys love the pulled pork. The BarBQ sauce is homemade and it is terriffic. We get Backyard Bar BQ every Firday for the office staff. They have two locations. One in Okemos and one downtown. The owners run them and they are the nicest people you would ever want to meet.
I couldnt give these guys a higher recommendation for food quality, you will not find any better.

A very good place to go for lunch! Meat is smoked on site. Close to the highway. Great place to go after a Spartan game.
