Their food is great..a tad pricey but nice sized portions..mac n cheese is mouth watering..as are the collards..I especially liked that they are cooked with turkey vs.pork..overall the food is great and I would recommend to friends and family.or even a stranger..its that good!

“Moist, flavorful BBQ - go early!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 27, 2012

By far the most moist beef brisket I've had anywhere! It had a nice smoke bark as well. The St Louis spare ribs were very good with plenty of meat on them and little fat or gristle. The collard green side was very flavorful with small bits of smoked turkey. Maple mashed yams were light and smooth without any sweet spices added.

We met Keith Taylor the chef/owner - a very nice and personable guy. He trains his staff well to greet you warmly, offer samples and be helpful.

They had at least 5 different sauces with a very interesting maple mustard version and 2 very hot options.

The only thing that could have made this better would have been china and table service but then the prices would be higher!

“Best BBQ in the Tri-State Area!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 11, 2011

If you want the best BBQ that you ever had, then go to Zachary's. Chef Keith Taylor cooks the most amazing brisket. You can also get ribs, chicken and all of your favorites. Home made sides, including Hopin' John, corn fritters, greens, maple swet potatoes and more will complete the perfect meal. Surprisingly inexpensive for the quality you get. Chef Taylor also caters weddings, parties and corporate events.
