“Delicious and inexpensive.”
Reviewed August 31, 2013

Recently dined here with family. Delicious brisket, ribs, burgers, etc. So you'd better be a carnivore if you eat at this restaurant. I agree with another reviewer who commented that the sides were just "okay."

“Best BBQ in Town”
Reviewed August 20, 2013

Great menu choices, everthing is fresh, best BBQ we have had in some time. Great stop if you are in the Lancaster area, worth travelling a little to get to.

Awesome food. All they need is hush puppies and it would be perfect. Definitely recommend this place. Indoor/outdoor seating and great for children too.

“Sweet Sauce BBQ - not impressed with sides”
Reviewed June 23, 2013

Nice clean place, good location on the main street in Mt. Joy, buzzing with business on a Saturday morning. Hubby got the big meat sampler - his favorites were the Cajun sausage and ribs. Good, but not something he can't wait to go back for... I, on the other hand, go to BBQ places for the sides, especially the mac and cheese. While Harvey's menu says the sides are all home made, the mac and cheese didn't impress me at all. Sides come in very small portions. Home made mac and cheese, in my experience and for my taste, should be browned on the top and crusty around the edges. Their mac and cheese looked to be very mass produced. The coleslaw was just ok. Potato salad was good. The baked beans were very good, but also very sweet. For me, a non-meat eater who loves BBQ sides, I wouldn't go back.
