“Just OK”
Reviewed October 18, 2012

Been to a lot of bbq restaurants, but this one was just below par. Asking $30 for a rack of ribs is just outrageous. Had an open faced prime rib sandwich with cole slaw... had to argue to have the FAT taken off before they cooked it. All in all... not really worth the effort to go there.

“Excellent BarBQ”
Reviewed October 16, 2012

Taste Sooo Good! Buy a pound and make your own sandwiches! The sauces are great but it is hard to beat their BarBQ!

“The Hillbillies at Hillbillys BBQ”
Reviewed October 15, 2012

We made reservations here, we weren't sure what we were going to get ourselves into. They sat us tight next to the kitchen.

The three "special" sauces on the table were labled something different but are really just: Ketchup, BBQ Sauce (not homemade) and a combination of the two with some mustard thrown in.
Dont ask for hot sauce, if you try it, it will ruin your dinner. The waiter said it had a nice flavor, I couldn't taste anything after trying that.

That really made me angry.

“Worth it!”
Reviewed October 7, 2012

The sign and outside of the building look Hokey- but the food is great. Nice smoked meats- good values and options. Staff if friendly, the place is clean. Ribs and Chicken from smoker are really great. Homemade baked beans with a nice smokey twist. we really enjoyed our meal.

“Roll up your sleeves..!!”
Reviewed October 4, 2012

Walked to Hillbilly's from our hotel down the street, after a couple of long necks, the Ribs, chicken and fries along with slaw, beans, onion rings, corn and bread was more than enough for 4 weary travellers from the UK...Roll up your sleeves, throw your bones in the bucket provided and enjoy..!!
