“Best BBQ in the area”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 26, 2013

Thanks to Trip Advisor, we stopped at Brooks and were so glad. This is a comfortable, down home place. Big, busy, but BBQ done right. Only waited about 10 minutes on a Friday evening. Nice big salad bar, fresh. We love the sauce and the chicken, ribs and pulled pork were A++. Nice gift shop behind.

“Must Stop when traveling I-88.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 24, 2013 via mobile

If traveling I-88 near Oneonta at lunch or dinner time (as long as it isn't a Monday), we always include a stop at Brooks. My daughter and I love the Pork Bun and my husband always gets the Pulled Pork Dinner. They also have a takeout window. We have always had a great meal.

“Best quality/value BBQ in us”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 21, 2013

We have had BBQ in most of the US, Lexington, Memphis, lived all over Texas - who would think that the best combination of quality and value was in Oneonta NY ? well it is. bBQ sampler plate- chic quarter, ,2ribs, pork,beef,salad bar, and fresh veggie, all for less than 12. The quality -very good, service outstanding,value-the best. PS, prepare for a short wait.

“chicken is good but...”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 18, 2013

my wife likes to go here every so often ,i feel like not... chicken is good but other than that fries are always cool like they make large batches and serve till the next batch,sides ,had the chicken spedies and roll was tough like week old tough with a a little butter slapped on it and thrown in steamer other than corn on the cob are maybe average, no great thought has gone into updating the food ,how about some corn bread or numerous other items homemade that would make it worth going

“Fun place to visit”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 16, 2013

We stopped here for lunch in August and really had a nice time.

It was myself, my sister, her son, my granddaughter and my mom.

The kids enjoyed the atmosphere and the food was reasonably priced and good.

After lunch we let the kids work off some energy in the outdoor play area and then browsed the gift shop and got ice cream.

It is a family friendly atmosphere and a good place to grab a bite and walk around after.
