I do not see the fuss! It is BBQ that is not very hard to make.

“Tride and True BBQ”
Reviewed March 18, 2012

Stopped here on my way out of town to get some BBQ to go. Their selection is wide. I wanted a little of everything so I got the Sampler Pack. It had Ribs, Pulled Pork, Chicken and more Pork. They PACKED an entire half tray of BBQ meats - enough so that we had BBQ for three different meals at home. This huge offering was only $22.00. I was ecstatic with all that I got. The meat had just the right amount of smokey flavor with perfect moisture and tenderness. Make sure to also get the potato salad - tenderly cooked red skin potatoes with just the right amount of mayo. The BBQ sauce is a bit on the sweet side but tasty nonetheless. This will definitely be a repeat for me if I'm back in State College, PA.

“CLEM'S HAS MOVED!”
Reviewed August 13, 2011

Clem's is one of the BEST BBQ places in the State College area. You don't want to miss them, but the opening of the I-99/220 bypass diverted so much traffic away from their Port Matilda location, they closed it. They now have TWO locations, one in Tyrone, PA at 427 McFarland Rd., Tyrone, PA 16686, and one in State College, PA 1663 S Atherton St, State College, PA 16801 (in Brewster's.) Niether location has seating. Clem's is a pick-up and take-out place, although the State College locale has a couple of picnic tables outside.

I love Clem's. The BBQ isn't too spicy and it's very reasonably priced. :D
