“Yummy food, laid back style”
Reviewed December 30, 2012

Would definitely recommend for a quick lunch! The food was home cooked and very fresh. Don't expect a fancy restaurant though.

“Exceptional.”
Reviewed November 21, 2012

On a getaway in August, we ate here on the advice of a friend.. What a great great surprise!!!, Excellent food, actually beyond all expectation, we always search out the BBQ shacks on our summer road trips. Simply great food thats coupled with an exceptional and friendly staff this is a true gem within overnight distance of Calgary. We've contemplated driving and staying just for one night so we can have the fritters again. Really quite a gem, Thank you.

“One mean brisket”
Reviewed November 3, 2012

If you are into scarfing down big chunks of meat the piggyback is the place for you. The brisket is amazing and the portions huge. In summer the place is pretty empty, so there was no waiting at all.

“A real Gem”
Reviewed October 31, 2012

Straight up stick to your ribs BBQ.

Being from the south I am picky about my BBQ so you can rest assured what I got was on the money.

I kept getting the brisket over and over again because it was that good. Being able to lounge at the picnic tables out front and soak up the sun and stare at the scenery while chowing down on righteous BBQ made it even better. Loved the hushpuppies also. Wife raved about the mac and cheese. Being a larger fellow I loved the portion size and how the place followed the spirit of montana. The food came out on serving sized platters! Stick that in your diet and spin it!

If you are staying at the lodge at whitefish this place will deliver, but why bother, it is in walking distance! two minutes down the road by vehicle if you are so inclined.

So take a fat mans advice and stop here for the chow and you will not be sorry!

Waitress was very friendly, the food was good and inexpensive (less than $20.00 for two), lots of sides to choose from.
